    I agree.

    Michael Strahan deserves a lot of credit. Pretty much everyone knows who he is now, from male football/Giants fans to housewives and stay-at-home moms across the country. He was certainly an out of the box choice to succeed Regis (who was starting to lose it toward the end of his run, imo) and I had my doubts at first, but he’s been great. Now he’s getting ready for his busy time of the year, with cross-country flights twice a week for five months between Live in NYC and FOX’s NFL studio in LA. Last year, he didn’t miss a beat with either gig.

    How ironic is it that Michael is now hosting a regular talk show while the man he replaced Regis is now hosting a sports show, the new Crowd Goes Wild on the new FS1? And that both are now employed by FOX Sports?

    “Live!” gets its highest HH ratings (2.6) in months the week Kelly Ripa is not on the show. Well, at least some things occasionally make sense. The show it a lot better without Ripa!!

    Yeah I think Michael Strahan is the story here, this dude has been smart in post-football career.

    I usually don’t watch “talk” shows but I do watch this one. I think Kelly and Michael are perfect together. Good job!!

    The last two weeks have been amazing without Kelly “NO TALENT” Ripa. Michael is the reason the ratings are good.
