  • Hi

    I have a feeling Seth Meyers may be picked to co-host. He has been on for soo many episodes!

  • stats

    Sidney Crosby just signed a 12 year extension with the Penguins. He makes $8.7 million a year. Kelly makes $10 million a year for doing absolutely nothing. Plus she’s a terrible talk show host. Notice how ABC is bragging that KELLY’s whow is the winner of 2 daytime Emmy awards? The show was Live with REGIS and Kelly that won those awards not KELLY’s new show. Give me a break. lol Bottom line here is Kelly Ripa makes more money than the best hockey player in the world does yearly. What a joke. lol Oh and quit saying OH MY GOSH over and over again Kelly. You are so annoying.

  • Denise

    Exactly!! The only other time they won was the year Regis announced he was leaving and then he won one the year he was on his own with revolving co-hosts. Hmmm! I wonder what the common link is?????

  • Patrice washburn

    Please Please Please pick Michael Strahan to be Kelly’s co-host!They have such chemistry and move the show along just Kelly did with Regis! I can’t believe I’m writing cuz I never do this, but I want Michael so bad to be the one picked!

  • stats

    Yeah I could see Michael Strahan being Kelly’s permanent co-host. Did you see Thursday’s show when Strahan took off his pants and the most woman audience loved it? And of course Kelly was panting since she’s dying to take Strahan to bed it seems. lol Ever notice how Kelly when she has a hunk guest on or co-host? She tells the audience that she’ll ask the guy to take his shirt off. If that were a MALE talk show host saying that about a hot lady guest he’d be in trouble. What a bad show Live has become.

  • Syl

    If it has to be Strahan, Myers or Grobin I’d settle for Josh Grobin. My personal choice is Neal Patrick Harris. In my opinion he and Kelly have the best chemistry and play off each other really well. I’m sure Neal would demand a high paycheck, but he is worth it.

  • stats

    I was being SARCASTIC there “Syl”. Michael Strahan took his pants off. You want that guy to replace REGIS? Give me a break. As I said before, this show is bad period. Kelly makes $10 million a year and doesn’t even take the time to due some research on her guests. And she asks all her “hunky” guests to take their shirts off. Kelly is 41 years old with 3 kids and married, but she acts like she’s 21. Time to take this horrible show off the air or BRING BACK REGIS and another co-host.

  • Michael Stiener

    Kelly is the BIGGEST phony in the business !!! Trust me as I speak from personal experience. She is a heartless person as is her husband.

  • emma pherate

    Regis was always classy and interesting. Michael Strahan is not that funny or interesting. He tris too hard and gets boring. I won’t watch if he is picked. Seth, Marty, Josh, Dana are all top picks with the comedy bones needed for this show. Michael can’t cut it in the long haul.

  • stats

    Well said. Regis was very classy and interesting and he would NOT take off his pants for ratings like Michael Strahan did last Thursday. I couldn’t believe it, and the audience of mostly women loved it. And of course Kelly wanted to take Strahan to bed right then and there. NO ONE can replace REGIS so just end this CIRCUS of a show.

  • Lisa

    I do not get to watch live at regular time so I DVR it. I LOVE watching the show I have for years. I miss Regis but I am really enjoying Michael Strahan. He and Kelly are very funny together. I have always loved the first part where they have conversation. Great Job Michael and Kelly!

  • stats

    Lisa you must’ve watched last Thursday when MICHAEL STRAHAN took off his pants? And the audience went nuts and Kelly was drooling? The show’s becoming like JERRY SPRINGER.

  • silkie316

    In my opinion….which is all we have here and everyone has their hard fought (by our troops) right to speak it. I love Kelly! She is so funny! I tune in the watch her! I love when her husband hosts the show too but don’t think he should be her co-host! I have enjoyed ALL the guest hosts but my favorite is Michael Strahan. He is funny and very similar to Regis in the crazy things he says and does. Regis was spontaneous and one never knew what he would say or do. Strahan is like this. NO ONE will replace the legendary Regis so the new host will have to pave their own way in morning talk show host world. Bottom line will be ratings…the new host will be the one that pulls the best ratings. :-)

  • stats

    I agree silkie. The new host WILL be the one that PULLS HIS PANTS OFF for the best ratings. Like Strahan did. lol Live with Kelly is becoming Jerry Springer sometimes.

  • Fptcb

    Viewers are tired of the wait, time to make a full time co-host. I vote for Josh! Second choice would be Seth. I use to watch every day, but it is boring so much of the time. Make some changes quick before you lose the viewers. Thanks.

  • Seriously??

    Really people?! Get off ur jealousy kicks! Kelly rocks!!! Get over it!!!

  • Seriously??

    And personal experience, they’re phony?! So you’ve spent lots of one on one time with the couple I assume??

  • stats

    It has NOTHING at all to do with jealousy. It’s just that KELLY is so annoying and her show’s become a circus. Want to know why it’s taken all these months and still no new co-host? Because the show SUCKS, that’s why. If Michael Strahan becomes the new guy he’ll take his pants off once in a while and PLEASE KELLY don’t take off your shirt. You are so gross.

  • Lin

    Love Live! With Kelly. She is a loving wife and Mom making a living and just happens to be funny and cute. I love the show. Loved with Regis but it was time for him to go, he had gotten boring and old goat, too much about Regis he was terrible hosting with that Katy Lee recently, acts like old man Rickles, same act
    I love Michael and Josh, either of them would’ve perfect! Seth is a little snotty and I hate him on SNL, do not like that knd of ‘humor’. Also love when Mark fills in. Kelly you are great! Josh or Michael, please. Michael is hilarious. I admire how she has kept the momentum going with having to help all the want a bes she has put up with. Also liked Greeny and Mulroney was adorable.

  • stats

    I found out that Kelly has a net worth of $55 million. Her husband Mark has a net worth of $8 million. Now we see why Mark will stay with his wife since SHE’S the bread winner of the family. Kelly’s net worth yearly is $20 million it says. Are you kidding me? She makes that much for doing absolutely NOTHING. She makes more than most professional athletes who risk injuries and get paid FAR LESS than OLIVE OIL RIPA. It’s unbelievable.
