Twitter has become obsessed with the interception-prone former Chicago Bears quarterback, who really couldn't care less about being on a reality show. "Forget the manufactured drama between Cavallari’s employees," says Tracy Swartz. "Cutler, 35, clearly steals the show with his don’t-care attitude. He sighs when Cavallari asks if he’s '100 percent done with football.' He spends most of his time on screen sighing, shrugging or staring." ALSO: Cutler lacks the charisma and energy to be a reality star, yet he's TV "magic" on Very Cavallari.

"We should know by the end of this month if we’re doing a three-night a week show or if E! will start us out at one-night per week," she says of the upcoming Busy Tonight. "My preference is really three nights per week to get a rhythm going. … We will be doing the traditional opening monologue a bit differently. It works for stand-ups and certainly everyone on Twitter is doing those sort of monologue jokes all day long. I bring something different to the table in my perspective so the opening will reflect that. I also just like talking, in case you can’t tell."

E! announced today Rancic will be joining Jason Kennedy on the weekday entertainment news show, starting Sept. 4. The news comes six months after the messy departure of Catt Sadler from E! Rancic -- who co-hosted E! News from 2005 to 2015 -- is technically filling the void left by Maria Menounos, who departed last summer after she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Menounos' role was replaced by a number of rotating co-hosts, including Sadler, who departed last December after she said she learned that Kennedy was making more than double her salary. “Co-hosting alongside one of my best friends, Jason Kennedy, with one of the most talented teams in entertainment journalism, makes this move even more special," Rancic said in a statement. "I can’t wait to reconnect with the E! News audience and go on this journey together once again.”
