[ # ] Live with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest
May 1st, 2017 under Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, Ryan Seacrest

On April 19, 2016, Michael Strahan announced that he was leaving Live with Kelly and Michael to join Good Morning America. Now after a year and 12 days, the daytime talk show finally has a new co-host. Kelly Ripa announced today she will be sitting next to Ryan Seacrest every weekday on Live with Kelly and Ryan.

I don’t know how well that will work out because she likes it to be all about her and he is all about it being about him. Can they lower their egos just enough to let them both shine equally, or will he being saying, “Seacrest out,” when his contract is up. Something I am sure is already on ABC’s mind.

They already have him hosting New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, so they can give him do more shows on their network to front. There was a time when he wanted to bring back American Bandstand, so now is a great time to do it. Plus, since the Alphabet network is killing it with game shows, they can give him one to host like Strahan.

Talking about hosting, he will still be doing his iHeartRadio show. He was also continue to chat with celebrities on E!’s Live from the Red Carpet specials. Although, he might wind up doing double duty for the Oscars.

Now, I have to admit, I haven’t watched the show since it was Live with Regis and Kathie Lee, so this decision doesn’t really affect me. But I was rooting to Jerry O’Connell to get the job. He has the potential to be a great talk show host and someone needs to give him one already. Unlike Seacrest, he didn’t have a talk show that lasted only a season.

One last thing, Kelly Ripa started out as an actress, right? Because it didn’t show today when she was making the announcement. Boy was that acting awful.
