The Hardest Working Man in Showbusiness

This title was held by the late James Brown. I don’t know the history of the title. Heck, he could have given it to himself for all I know. Snopes doesn’t cover that kinda thing. Boo. But, last night I had a revelation.

I now know who SHOULD get that title.

Find out after the jump.

That’s right. Ryan Seacrest.

Laugh if you must, but let me make my arguement.

First – he’s host of American Idol. Sure, that doesn’t sound too difficult, I mean, you’re always fighting for screen time against the drunk/high Paula Abdul and Euro-Trash Simon Cowell. And yet he manages to keep his own.

On top of that, have you watched this show? I know I’m 6 years behind the 8-Ball here on this one, having watched my first episode (courtesy of my sister and TiVo) – I was absolutely amazed by how “entertaining” he had to be with some of the most challenging, pathetic, ridiculous people on the face of this planet. And each time he does so, he does it with same aplomb and energy as though he were talking to Steve Jobs, Brittany Murphy, or some other mildly-entertaining individual.

In addition to the numerous radio shows (I think) and he did at one time have a talk show. Ok.

I don’t know anything about this guy other than what I saw for 25 minutes. BUT – I was impressed how he handled himself, and would gladly give him that title until someone else steps up to the plate.

James Brown left some REALLY big shoes to fill….
