Ryan Seacrest's much-hyped big NBC announcement arrived on Wednesday, but those expecting a major changing of the guard in morning TV were disappointed.

Instead, Seacrest added yet another job to his stuffed resume, announcing that he's joining NBC's prime-time coverage of the Olympics in London this summer.

The ubiquitous TV face also appeared on NBC's Today to quash an ongoing rumor that he would be joining the program, replacing Matt Lauer.

Lauer, who conducted the interview, got to that right off the bat, asking Seacrest, "What kind of conversations have you had with NBC about joining the Today show?"

"Oh, they didn't tell you?" Seacrest answered. He then went on to explain how E! and NBC are in the same corporate family (both part of NBCUniversal) and how he planned to participate more on NBC, including the Olympics, while still serving as host of E! News, E!'s red-carpet host for award shows, and as a reality-TV producer.
