Do you remember the short-lived TV show, On Air with Ryan Seacrest? This show ran from January 12, 2004 through September 17, 2004.
The show was broadcast in the center of Hollywood in a studio at Hollywood and Highland.
The show featured the popular guests of the time…but the show just never caught on. Since the show was syndicated, it began to lose broadcasts and when 65% of the channels had removed the show, the series ended.
On January 15, 2004, Clay Aiken was a guest on the show. As a joke, he and Ryan wore the same shirt and got lots of laughs. Ryan showed a “before AI” picture of Clay and commented at how much better he looked now. They also talked about how different life was for Clay and laughed at the good and bad things that come with celebrity. Ryan showed many of the gifts that the fans of Clay sent to the studio…flowers, donuts, stuffed animals, etc.
The two videos below show most of the time Clay was on the show on January 15th.
They are interesting and fun!
I am glad I found these YouTubes.
I remembered some of the show, but I didn’t remember all of it!
This top video is special to me – a few years ago Diane the woman they brought in to see Clay happened to be on the internet and I remembered her and posted to her that I remember when she was on with Clay – she posted back and we had a little conversation – it just was so special!!! She still was a Clay fan, too. Thanks for bringing a very special memory back to me! It was very cold here in the east at that time just like Ryan said.
Thank you for the pictures and the 2 videos. I remember watching this on TV. Thank you CANN.
Thanks so much for the videos! I remember seeing this on TV….so special to experience the excitement again!
