Remember Brian Dunkleman? Not really, right? Dunkleman was Ryan Seacrest's "American Idol" co-host in the show's first season, but when the show returned for Season 2, in 2003, Dunkleman was absent. Now he calls himself a "television history footnote."

When asked if there was a possibility of a Seacrest-Dunkleman reunion before the series ended, chairman and CEO of Fox Television Group Dana Walden said, "Where is Brian Dunkleman? If you give me his number, I will call and invite him.”
