After all was said and done, now Michael Strahan is exiting much earlier than originally announced from his co-host seat on Live with Kelly and Michael.  Seems after all the parties discussed the events that transpired, ABC, Good Morning American and “Live” felt it best for Michael to exit on May 13th!

This decision would allow Straham to integrate into Good Morning America more often this summer while also giving LIVE! more time to find a new co-host.

After Tuesday’s return to work, Ripa made her sentiments known to the studio audience and the audience at home.  E Online reports that a source revealed, “ABC could have tried to pre-tape her comments. They could have tried to block or censor her comments. They could have asked her to go out there and pretend like nothing happened. But ABC didn’t. I think the network deserves credit for that.”

So who should be Kelly Ripa’s new co-host now that Strahan is on his way out in a few weeks?  Share your thoughts below!

Neil Patrick Harris, Ryan Seacrest or Clay Aiken would all be good.

aria

she hates clay aiken, they had an on air fall out.

Carmen

what about Craig Ferguson, Patricia Heaton, and Anderson Cooper.

Mariah

John stamos, he is hot and he would make a terrific talk show host.

Andrew

Caitlynn Jenner would be great, hire her ABC

David

Andy Cohen or Anderson Cooper.

Patricio

Ditto David . Josh Groban is also great with Kelly.

Victor

Have another female host, Rosie O Donnel.

Rick

Rosie and Kelly had a falling out back in 2006 when Clay AIken covered her mouth.She said thats a no no putting his hand over her mouth because she has no idea where its been. Rosie took it as Kelly being a homophobe. Beside Rosie would quit in a blink of an eye like she done on the VIEW 2x.

Patricio

Great memory! I forgot that!

Mo

You really want the show to fail, don’t you?

Coco

I think Alfonso Riberio would be an excellent choice.

Patricio

OMG great pick. He is such a likable guy.

Eddie

She has great chemistry with her husband, Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Groban, and Anderson Cooper.

Matt

I think Donald Trump as new co host. The ratings would go thru the roof!!! If ABC made the offer, maybe he would drop out of the race.

blake

why would he He’s going to be President.

sonya

Double puke!

Nikki

Anderson Cooper or Rosie O’Donald but although I like her husband Mark I would hate to see him as her co-host. I don’t like the two of them together on the show.

Nikki

Another one would be great would be Kathy Lee Gifford.

Paul

How about Strahan’s former coach with the football Giants, Tom Coughlin? I hear that he’s available, looking for work, and doesn’t know what to do with himself 🙂

They’d be forced to start the show 5 minutes early every morning, at 8:55 am, cutting into the end of GMA 🙂

James R. Poissant

Boy, everyone did mention some great suggestions—if they went with any one of these names, the show would still be fun.

Lori Simmons

Neil Patrick Harris

Stephanie

Another former Soap Star from New York. There are plenty to pick from since the soaps are all gone. #ATWTforeverFan

This is all just a publicity stunt and it is becoming sickening.

My theory that this is a PUBLICITY STUNT is building. That entertainment show with that guy that used to be on The Tonight Show as Ross the Intern showed a photo of Kelly Ripa coming out of her home with Anderson Cooper’s book in her hands and they made a point to mention that you could clearly see his face on the book. They also say that he is in the lead to be her new cohost.

So why the close-up picture of the book? Why the photo of her coming from her home? Why carry THAT book? And now Strahan is leaving sooner? Please! I bet it was their intent to have him leave at this time all along. Nothing gets eyeballs than DRAMA and all of you are buying into this “story” are being played! Mark my words.

Chrystie_Delancey

Oh, and if you think for one SECOND that they don’t already have the new co-host chosen and on contract, then you are exactly the lambs for ABC that they expect you to be. This is a publicity stunt and has been in the works for a long time. Oh I am sure they will trot out a bunch of so-called “prospects” to make you think they are auditioning, but they already have the host. That is why Strahan is leaving next month so the new co-host can debut in the fall. Don’t fall for this, people!

Leah

So agree! Networks know what will get ‘eyes’ and bump ratings and “we” never disappoint. Sadly…
Live wants its #1 spot back.
Billy Bush leaving Access for NBC Live; no chatter about that.

Mark Consuelos

Nikki

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Timmm

GOOD! That means I can start tuning in on May 14th!

Jamesj75

I share your sentiments, Timmm…

blake

same here

Ray

I think everyone would love to see Anderson, Neil or Andy. I also read Jerry O’Connell is in the running. I am not a fan. I know he is California-based, but I would like to see Mario Lopez be considered.

jaybird369

Mark Consuelos (Kelly’s husband). End of story. Next……….

Nikki

OMG Nooooooooo. He is such a bore with her. It would be snooze-ville.

penny

Cameron Mathison, Kobe Bryant, Ronan Farrow, Andy Cohen, Mario Lopez or A.J. Calloway.

Joe

I liked on Tuesday when the camera cut away after Kelly’s announcement, when Michael normally pulls out the chair for her, and she told him she has it. Kelly doesn’t need Michael’s help, she’ll be better off with whoever comes next.

Charday

Bring back Regis and Kathie Lee and dump the others.

Peggie

I agree with you Charday.

Nikki

Me too.

K Ross

Not Mark Consuelos. Anderson Copper and Kelly have a good time together.

Yvonne

First Choice, Mark Consuelos
Then Nick Lachey, Neil Patrick Harris and Anderson Cooper all tie for second because she has great chemistry with them all.

Oscar

Cameron Mathison, Larry King or Josh Groban.

Rj

I thought about Cameron Mathison also.

Rj

Also, her husband Mark could be a possibility. Funny, I am commenting because I have not actually watched the show in years!

Mo

I was watching GMA today and when he came on I changed the channel.

Shari

No one—kelly is our long, national nightmare.

Patrick

TA -DA !!!! spotlight !

the answer IS : “Joey Fatone”

Joseph Anthony “Joey” Fatone, Jr. is an American singer, dancer, actor and television personality. He is best known as a member of the boyband *NSYNC, in which he sang baritone.

Jane

Cancel it, don’t care.

luisa giammichele

I think it should be her husband they will do great together it is a family show

lynn wood

Sooo, Michael knew but HAD to keep the news under wraps. Kelly should understand and move on now. I don’t watch ” Live” b/c even at home Kellys looks and unprofessional ism is uncalled for. It’s done. Pull your big girl fancy pants up and move on. You know most of the watchers now are just wanting to see or here what you’re going to do next. How disrespectful you are. *Way to go in being the bigger person, Michael. Good Luck at GMA. We’ll be watching.

lynn wood

Even tho this may not be printed anywhere, I sincerely hope Kelly sees this and makes the little time she has left with Michael better and not just with him but the veiwers. Let us see that she’s moved and make it sincerely fun again. Am sooo sure I’m not the only one that feels this way. As much as I dislike writing this, I think much less of Kelly now.

Peggie

I feel the same way Lynn. I think Kelly is being very immature and a bitch. I always thought she had a big head but she has a bigger attitude to go with it. She is really sickening. Everyone in my house only watched the show for Michael and now that he is leaving you could not pay me to look at it with Kelly on it. Just saying (truth)

Nikki

I agree Lynn. Good luck Michael at GMA. You’ll be in better company than with this spoiled kid that thinks she runs the show. I’ll be watching GMA. My hope is that they take Kathy Lee Gifford back to be Kelly’s co-host. Believe me Kelly would be behaving herself or walking off the set because Kathy wouldn’t take her pouting and childish acting. Grow-up Kelly and See you on GMA Michael. Watch the ratings for Live drop now that Michael’s gone. Enjoy your emmy Kelly there won’t be another one. This one was for Michael.

Patricio

Thinking out of the box ….Erika Slezak of OLTL. Could be a greT dynamic.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
