I Think I Love You Too, Ryan

First, it was "Seacrest Out" on American Idol. Now LA radio listeners are treated to another lame, but more amorous tagline, from the highlighted one himself.

The ubiquitous Ryan Seacrest, of KIIS-FM 102.7's morning show, is a "celeb" that you either love or hate. There's no gray area with Ryan. His cheesy metrosexual innuendo shtick is appealing to some, but makes others want to gouge their eyes out with dull toothpicks and serve them up like olives in a dirty martini. LAist counts itself in that latter category (but we'll watch him again when AI bows in January. Guess you can't have one without the other).

For those not familiar with the KIIIS-FM morning show chatfest, Seacrest talks to listeners and ends the calls with "I think I love you." He waits for the callers to tell him they love him, too. The majority of women callers seem to shoot the "l" word right back to him, but it's a little different with many of the guy callers, who try to get out of telling the DJ on air that they think they love him. It gets a little uncomfortable -- but Seacrest's ego doesn't relinquish the reigns. He patiently waits for the love.

Now many of us don't tell our loved ones we love them enough, but we'll tell a radio you think it's a prerequisite to claiming those Jingle Ball tickets?
