Even children can’t escape Ryan Seacrest. The ubiquitous TV host has sold his idea for a kid’s game show to Nickelodeon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Go Viral” will have kids watching viral videos and competing by guessing outcomes and gauging each vid’s popularity with the audience.

“Viral elimination challenges” — which sound like a dystopian outbreak of some virulent disease — will determine who remains standing.

Seacrest’s other new show, prime time’s “Million Second Quiz,” fell flat with viewers. Here’s hoping he fares better with the 13 and under crowd.
