Yo Dawg, Randy Jackson Is Reportedly Pitching a Daytime Talk Show

The show, which Jackson would host, would not be limited to music. "He wants to talk about things that will be hip next," one source told THR. "He thinks he has his finger on the pulse."
The Grammy winner is now the longest-serving judge on Idol and also executive produces Randy Jackson Presents America's Next Best Dance Crew for MTV. Jackson's longtime Idol colleague, Ryan Seacrest, tried his hand at daytime back in 2004. His syndicated series, On Air with Ryan Seacrest, lasted just nine months.
