After a traffic surge that crippled for much of the day, the site — which received a redesign courtesy of Joel McHale for April Fools Day — is now viewable. We tried to get McHale and Seacrest to share how the idea came about, but have been told they prefer to let the jokes speak for themselves.

What’s been your favorite part of McHale’s takeover? For top tweet, I’ll go with “Ryan here: just interviewed @SelenaGomez. She was awesome. Really connected. PSYCH! IT’S STILL JOEL!#seacresthacked” and for choice web site component, definitely the headline “Relive Joel McHale’s Epic Cameo in Spider-Man 2.”

Oh wait, Breaking News: “E! News Moves to Fridays at 10PM.”

Pity there’s not a new episode of Community on tonight for McHale to plug.
