In May 2014, Deadline Hollywood reported that Seacrest had signed a one-year deal with the option of another year. He remained host of the series until the end of its run in April 2016.

After Clark's death, Seacrest hosted the 2013 edition of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with co-hosts Jenny McCarthy and Fergie paying tribute to Dick Clark in the pre-show. In October 2013, Seacrest signed a multi-year contract extension with Dick Clark Productions to continue as host and executive producer of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve. In 2017, Seacrest hosted Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve for the 13th consecutive year alongside Jenny McCarthy, who had co-hosted for eight years and brought in 25.6 million viewers, the highest in six years.

In 2018, Seacrest was inducted into the Library of American Broadcasting Foundation's 16th Annual Giants of Broadcasting & Electronic Arts.

Seacrest's three-year hosting deal with E! included executive producing credits on various programs, including E! News and its red carpet awards show coverages. That same year, Seacrest launched Ryan Seacrest Productions (RSP); in August 2008, Seacrest named his longtime William Morris Agent, Adam Sher, as CEO. Comcast had first-look rights for all RSP shows through January 2012. Clear Channel acquired a minority stake in RSP in early 2012, but the company no longer has a first look deal with any network.

Seacrest remains managing editor of E! News and executive produces its red carpet awards show coverage but no longer hosts (since January 2012) E! News on a daily basis.

An Associated Press profile portrayed Seacrest as using both the deal with E! and Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve as springboards to a long-lasting career in television production and ownership.

Seacrest produces the hit series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the highest-rated show on the E! network, and the spin-offs Khloe and Lamar, Kourtney and Kim Take New York and Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami.

In 2017, Seacrest signed a multi-year overall deal between Ryan Seacrest Productions and ABC Studios in which the company's scripted division would develop scripted projects for ABC Studios exclusively.

In 2018, Seacrest joined the Paley Center for Media's Board of Trustees.

The Typo keyboard was discontinued in a 2015 patent settlement with Blackberry Ltd. He is also an investor and partner at Pathwater, a brand of purified water offered in a refillable aluminum bottle.

Jenner's first reported public romance was with Australian pop singer Simpson. The pair seemingly met for the first time when Jenner was conducting interviews for "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" at the 18 Nov., 2011, premiere of the "Breaking Dawn: Part 1." Rumours had already been swirling that the pair were an item, so flirty banter broke out between the pair almost instantly. "You're my rumoured boyfriend on Twitter," she said to Simpson. "Nice to finally meet you." Ten days later, it was reported the pair were dating, with a source telling Us Weekly at the time, "Yes, they went on a date, and have been inseparable since." Pictures of the pair PDA-ing at an event also circulated online.

As relationships go when you're barely 15, theirs was short-lived, and it's unknown exactly when Jenner and Simpson stopped hanging out.
