    Love the show. Can not believe it would have been this great with anyone BUT MICHAEL. Show today with his Mom was so funny. He didn’t know what stories she might tell on the air.Ya’ll(yes, I am from southeast Alabama)are awesome together. Keep the laughter up. Somedays we just need to laugh!!!

    Michael is great. He has brought some class to the show and his mom was fantastic, but Kelly OH MY GOSH NO TALENT Ripa is pathetic.She cant act or dance or sing and she is no talk show host stuttering and stammering. They should replace her or give her a vacation

    “Live” is one of the most entertaining morning programs. I have enjoyed it for many years with Regis, Kathy Lee and Kelly. Kelly Ripa is the ultimate host. She is always entertaining but what I like most about her she is always positive in her messages. Kelly is as talented as any host or actor on TV current and past. She has her own style which makes “Live” special to watch. Michael S. is a wonderful addition to the show. I am glad he was selected. It’s refreshing to watch a show that starts the day off that doesn’t engage in negative remarks and low class actions. I am a fan.
