Ryan Seacrest and the gang are back tonight as the top nine take the stage on FOX‘s American Idol, and Ryan has some news of his own this week. Ryan Seacrest recently topped the The Hollywood Reporter’s fourth annual Reality Power List, bumping out Simon Cowell. Keep reading for more details!

American Idol personalities will once again hold the top spot in The Hollywood Reporter’s Reality Power List as after 2 years in the number one spot, Simon Cowell was bumped out by the show’s host and radio personality, Ryan Seacrest. Simon Cowell was actually bumped down to the number six spot when Ryan jumped into the number one spot. The rankings which include 50 big names in reality television rank the personalities on the following: having a reputation for quality and innovation within the business; the indelible mark one makes on his or her shows as overseeing executive, producer, or talent; one’s overall impact on pop culture, and one’s ability to create dramatic, comedic and can’t miss television.

According to their website, Ryan Seacrest took the number one spot due to “an ever-expanding slate of buzzworthy programs that landed him at number one, including: a resurgent Idol in the wake of Cowell’s high-profile departure; an Emmy win in August for the Seacrest-produced Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution; and four iterations of the red-hot Kardashian franchise. Similarly working in his favor is the power of the Ryan Seacrest brand, which reaches an audience of more than 35 million weekly — and that’s just on television.”
