The self-described 'King of all Media' took to the airwaves earlier this week to announce that he had been offered a high-profile job in network TV.

With word that Simon Cowell is leaving 'American Idol' after this season to start 'The X Factor' in the U.S., the fate of the 'Idol' juggernaut is uncertain.
