After much chatter about Steven Tyler‘s loose lips and wandering eyes on “American Idol,” Ryan exclusively confirmed on his radio show Wednesday that producers plan to issue an apology to viewers.

“There’s a black card that starts the show tonight,” Ryan explained of the episode featuring auditions in Austin, TX. “It starts with, ‘American Idol would like to apologize for last week’s outrageous behavior by Steven Tyler…'”

What the rest of the apology says, we’ll find out tonight, but Ryan insisted viewers watch the entire hour because, “it will all add up and make sense.”

When asked by co-host Ellen K. if Tyler would keep his job, Ryan exclaimed, “I hope so!”

“Idol” airs tonight at 8/7c only on Fox.
