    I can believe it. First, Michael isn’t the curmudgin that Regis is. Second, and i just noticed it this morning, the energy level is higher that when Kelly was solo or with Regis, which is something you want in a morning show.

  • Ellen in NYC

    I can’t believe it.

  • Joan

    Michael is great, but Kelly NO TALENT Ripa is annoying

  • USAmerica1st

    Wow, good news! There is life after Regis, after all. I think both Kathie Lee and Reg kinda left with that “you gonna miss me” attitude, so this new team is refreshing, hilarious, and so far successful.

  • rosemary thies

    I just want to say that I really do enjoy Kely and Micheal. They make me laugh and make me feel good. I always watched them.

  • Joan

    What about the comment Kelly made about pitnulls?

  • Joan

    I meant to say pitbulls

  • Debbie

    Are you kidding me. Regis was hilarious, quick with a joke and had some great stories to tell always!! These two are just dull together in my opinion. I’ve always loved Kelly but not with Michael. The audience never laughs at their jokes. Very disappointed.
