There's a reason Ryan Seacrest is so wealthy ... He knows better than everyone else that conflict makes shows profitable.  

To be more exact, Seacrest claimed yesterday's Nicki Minaj-Mariah Carey blowout is a good thing for "American Idol" ratings.

Seacrest just took to his radio show and stated about Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey's "American Idol" war:"We want that!"

"We want them to be on this panel together. This is a good team, a great team, to go out and look for the next "American Idol" Seacrest was quoted as saying.

Seacrest revealed: "(There's) nothing wrong with disagreeing ... That's gonna happen, and it's okay."

Ryan added: "These are all very different individuals with different perspectives and different opinions that provide for interesting conversation and dialogue and feedback for the contestants."
