Series background edit

The show was broadcast live from a studio in the Hollywood and Highland complex in Hollywood and featured a background view of the street scene below.[4] The title came from his morning radio show of the same name, which also debuted in 2004 and later went nationwide as a daily syndicated radio series in 2008. It was recorded live at Noon pacific time, and aired at Noon on KCOP-TV, Los Angeles' UPN affiliate & there was an encore that aired at 5:00pm on KTTV, Los Angeles' Fox affiliate

On Air struggled in the ratings throughout its short run. It featured well-known guests, and capitalized upon the fact that host Ryan Seacrest concurrently hosted American Idol by featuring contestants who had been eliminated from the popular talent program the night before.[5]

Seacrest would return to daytime talk television thirteen years later, when he began working in New York City on May 1, 2017, as co-host of the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan.
