Mark Consuelos Admits ‘Messing’ Up on TV is Part of the Charm as Co-Host of ‘Live with Kelly and Mark’

Hosting a live morning show, or any show for that matter, definitely comes with its challenges, as former All My Children star, Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo) has recently found out.

Back in April, Consuelos took over the co-host spot from Ryan Seacrest, and is now teaming with his wife, another All My Children alum, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley), as the anchors of the syndicated talker, Live with Kelly and Ryan.

Since his start as the co-host, viewers have noticed a few slip-ups from Consuelos.  But, what host hasn’t? The actor/host/producer acknowledges that in a conversation with the U.S. Sun.

Mark shared: “As an actor, when you mess up, they go back and say, ‘Alright, let’s do it again,’ and you can do that as many times as you need until they get it right.  But this is live television, so it definitely feels like you’re on sort of a tightrope and you’re walking in each and every day, and that’s a challenge I love.”

The ex-soap star-turned-talk show host added, “Even when ‘Live’ is recorded, we shoot it live. It’s packaged that way. Michael Gelman (EP, Live with Kelly and Mark) says it’s part of the charm of the show.”

Since Consuelos joined Ripa, the ratings for the show have never been better! Live with Kelly and Mark is currently ranked as the No. 1 syndicated talk show and No. 1 entertainment talk show across all daytime television.  According to the show, and the Nielsen Ratings, ‘Live’ has garnered over 27.1 billion minutes of viewing time, making it the season’s most-watched talk show.

So, are you enjoying Mark as Kelly Ripa’s latest co-host? Has ‘Live’ been the best it’s ever been with Consuelos joining his wife at the table each morning? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

He does have a great smile…


kelly needs to stop pulling on het bra when she first comes out


She needs to dusappear completely. i don’t know what dirt she has on who that keeps her valud, but hsr time was uo when she wss so horrible to Michael Strayhan

She was correct about Strahan. He secretly left the show to join GMA

Oh yes very much

Maybe I’ll have to check it out again. I couldn’t watch during the Strahan days and I never went back to watch the Seacrest years.
If Kelly has calmed down somewhat, maybe I can watch again! I do like Mark!!

I Will never get over the SNUB nobody talks about. Regis was ignored after he left… Kelly and German broke his heart. She got too big for her britches!

Oops, Gelman. Darn auto correct!

Not true

I never could stand Ryan Seacrest…watching Mark and Kelly together has been such fun, it’s my favorite show since I am on short-term disability for a knee replacement. Even when I go back to work I will make it “must-see TV”!

Needs to do less touching. Arms, legs. They are married but come on now!

They both like to talk over each other
They like looking in the camera spend to much time talking about there kids


I enjoy watching them too!

Me too

It’s a natural thing, I noticed that a lot, I don’t think it’s meant to be anything else. I’m a New Yorker we talk w our hands

I think the idsa of the two of them working together was a brilliant idea

Mark really thinks too much of himself. Wearing tight shirts to show off his muscles and frequently looking into the camera to see how he looks.

Sry to say but Mark thinks it’s all about him

Like them both, enjoying the show. Especially love when Mark tries to win the mug. Fun mornings.

I think he ruined that game making it all about him.

I enjoy Kelly & Mark. Mark is getting more comfortable working with Kelly.They are doing a good job. I enjoy the show. I like that they ard letting younger people in the audience.
Keep up the good job.

I love this show. It has morals, unlike most of TV. I watched this show when Regis and Kathy Lee were on. A long time!

Consuelos isn’t as smooth as Seacrest but it makes him a heck more charming

Yes! I love them working together AGAIN! She also guest starred on the Canadian show missing 911

The host chat and trivia game are my favorite parts of the show. They are hilarious! I enjoy them.

They are a good team. She shuts up when he talks which is good. Sometimes she went on and on and Ryan couldn’t get a word in or change subject when she rambled

I always felt that Ryan wanted to be the main star.

Yes! I totally agree! They are great together. Didn’t like the banter between Kelly and Ryan. He couldn’t decide whether to jeep his glasses on or off!! Constantly putting them on and taking them off. Sooo annoying! And his obsession with food, enough is enough. I’m glad he’s gone! Mark is a breath of fresh air! He makes the show now, Kelly? Kelly who?

It’s my favorite show Kelly and Mark are fun to watch. I watch every day on treadmill and marc u are doind great and Kelly u are such a natural and when it comes to realizeing boundaries bypu are perfect at it

I think the show is great with Mark as co-host. Enjoy his humor and gotta say, he’s pretty good to look at!

The most enjoyable show. I especially love that they keep political junk out of their show. it’s just entertainment, fun, great American talk show. Thank you Kelly and mark For making my weekdays better.

I watched the show since since the ’80s I’m very disappointed that the shows are not live everyday pre-recorded today was bullshit. We no longer talk about current events cuz God forbid people would know that it’s not live like it used to be. Regis would be turning over in his grave..

I think he is great! Very real! You go boy!

I only watched with Ryan a few times but am now watching with Mark on a regular basis, I think everyone loves his smile. I enjoy the show since Mark joined Kelly.


Kelly Ripa is fun, enjoyable to watch, what you see is what you get……Mark on the other hand is no Ryan Seacrest…… he’s not one I want to watch

I miss Ryan so much. Sure, he talked about food a lot but it was better than Mark’s nattering about sports!

Love them both. Their chemistry and mutual respect for one another is awesome. They have great kids Also! It will only get better with Time! #TEAMMARKANDKELLY

I think the show got a much needed boast with Mark on the show it’s no surprise the ratings went up and back to a live audience was a major plus to the show. ‘ they had rerun on today with Ryan and frankly it was quite boring!!! I kept watching it because I like Kelly & Ryan together plus I hoped he would talk about his girlfriend!! Happy they are all doing well in life

I must agree with the show today. I was so disappointed. I walked away and started to make an egg and toast for my hubby and me. I MISSED MARK AND WAS SO SAD WHEN HE WASN’T ON. IT SPOILED MY DAY!!!

i think that hubby/wife was cute and different initially but now it bores me. also Kelly still talks over co-host snd guests. disrespectful

Never been a fan and now more so, I’m enjoying Drew Barrymore and Sherry Shepard that also comes on at 9am.
Big pet peave Kelly takes the time to dress appropriately but Mark seems to not care with his Polo shirts and jeans, not a professional look for anyone who’s in the people’s a.m. show

Mark likes to wear shirts that show off his muscles!

I watched them on all my children and loved them. Still watch them and will continue watching them. Such a beautiful couple.

Love this Live with Kelly and Mark!!! Also love shots of Dejavoo ,Gelman,and Art Moore too

Wonderful chemistry with Kelly and Mark.My husband and I touched one another just held hands or he would put his hand on my knee,and I would put my hand on his leg.Just a sign of affection. They are husband and wife,now 27 yrs.I think its great.Wish my husband was still here with me,but passed away 7 yrs.ago.Miss the love and hugs,and touches You two truly are soulmates Kelly and Mark ❤

It has been a more lively show
Always watched it but it is better now. They are a great couple.

I preferably like Ryans chemistry with Kelly but lets say maybe having Mark on the show will grow on my appreciation for him.

I am not crazy about Mark, I think he is just too cocky. He took the lead over from Kelly. He seems like a smart ass. I don’t watch anymore unless there is someone I really want to see.

You are so right! He frequently overpowers Kelly and he has ruined the trivia game making it all about him.

It’s not charm, it’s incompetence. He should not have been given the job. Oh, well, he will bring a quicker end to the show. I always found her annoying

I enjoy their show more than ever there’s a real genuine love that I see between those two people and I think it’s great it’s very natural they’re very natural together it’s more enjoyable than ever

What I like most about the show is the actual love that they have for one another I think it’s wonderful and I like that they’re polite to one another as well that’s all part of being a good couple really. I think the show is really better than ever.

I love the show and the hosts. They are so good together. I knew from the announcement of Ryan leaving that Mark would be the perfect fit. I pray that they both stay grounded, and in love with each other, and continue to keep the show interesting. Great job Mark and Kelly! Kudos to Michael Gelman!!

I love Mark Consuelos♥️ He has been the best edition to the talk show. My question is now that Kelly is co hosting with her husband; why isn’t she all over him like she was with Seacrest? I love Mark he is handsome and knows what he is doing. I record all the show as well as The View. The best in television for daytime viewing.

Kelly and Mark are awesome .,He is great.. I went back to watching my favorite show again .,

Absolutely the best it’s ever been.. Mark has made the show a hundred times better then with Ryan. They have a wonderful rapport with each other and it’s fun to watch..

She has to stop interrupting so maybe with mark it won’t happen

Hi I am from Asheboro North Carolina and I hated Ryan Seacrest I love to watch Mark and Kelly they make a good team It is a 5 star show now love you guys

I have always enjoyed this husband and wife team. Now that it’s on daily, I enjoy it even more. Sometimes I can see Kelly’s frustration with Mark, but you know she loves him and all will be good. It’s like a modern day Lucy and Desi! Without the eventual divorce!

Sorry…I can’t watch one minute of the show. I tried…really. cant stand to listen to Kelly talk. She says toooo many “ummm”. Get rid of both of them.

I miss Ryan he was really good and a lot of fun to watch!!!

I miss him too. I liked hearing about his family too.

I love Kelly and Mark. Great looking couple!

Make it live with Mark. Lose Kelly…she is sooo annoying

Lose Kelly…She is sooo annoying…keep Mark

I do like the new concept they have now since Mark started, just hate every Thursday & Friday is pre recorded

Yes, I am loving Live with Kelly & Mark. It is rated
# 1 in my eyes. They do excellent together

I couldn’t love them more. They are darling together.

I love them together.

It’s the best. I love to see these two banter.

Love Kelly and Mark

I wouldn’t watch the show before Mark joined the show. Kelly was so full of herself. Now with her husband as co-host I love watching it. They definitely compliment each other.

Yes I think Kelly is even better on the show since Mark has joined. I love him he is so funny and natural. I think the show is more authentic and makes it seem like real life a real family. I think they bring out the best in each other. It gives a new spice to the show. It is definitely a better show now. Plus it show America a real and lasting love story. Talking about the kids together is also nice. You have a winner in my book!

I have watched Kelly and Mark since they were on All My Children!! I love watching them and hearing them talk about their kids!!

In the thriller, Stause, along with Diora Baird, play a lesbian couple, enjoying quality time together before the birth of their new baby in a remote mountain town. Zoe (Stause) is pregnant and along with Kennedy (Baird), are offered a break from their stressful lives when Kennedy’s boss gives them a key to a cabin in the woods. Watch out!

According to The Wrap, “When they arrive, they are met with less than welcoming arms, prompting Zoe to sound alarms of homophobia, which Kennedy attempts to tamper down. ”


The official loglines from Lifetime share on the story: “Just as the two let their guards down, their nightmare begins. They realize they are completely unprepared for what is in store, and that the townspeople want something the two have.”

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos to Kick Off Season 36 of ‘Live’ with New Show Opening

The new season of morning talk shows begins this week, and one of them, Live with Kelly and Mark, is starting things off with a new show open starring the hosts and married couple, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, formerly of All My Children fame.

Make sure to circle Tuesday September 5th, when Kelly and Mark begin their first official season together as co-hosts of the long-running show now in its 36th season.  As many know, Consuelos joined the show back in April of this year, after Ryan Seacrest made the decision to depart the series and move back to Los Angeles full-time, since the talker is shot in New York City.

In the concept of the new opening, the husband and wife duo are seen brushing their teeth in their apartment, then going through a couple of outfit changes/looks, before they settle on what they wearing as they are driven to their New York City studio where ‘Live’ emanates from, and arrive in its corridors.

In addition, this season will have a new trivia game segment called Stump Mark.  In it, Mark will try his darnedest to keep the coveted Live mug away from trivia callers trying to stump him with their two statements — one true, one false.

Scheduled guests for the week: Derek Hough, Jake Gyllenhaal, Melissa Etheridge, Josh Gad, Shinedown, Phillip Phillips, Nikki and Brie Bella and more.

Take a look at the opening title sequence for Live with Kelly and Mark below, and then let us know what you thought of it in the comment section, and let us know if you are looking forward to the new season of the talk show.

Kelly Ripa Teases New Season of ‘Live’ with Husband Mark Consuelos: “Our Show Is Best When It’s Going Off the Rails”

Since Mark Consuelos joined his real-life wife, Kelly Ripa on the morning talk show Live with Kelly and Mark, the ratings have never been better.  In fact, according to the Nielsen ratings, the former All My Children stars came in second behind The View for the 2022-2023 television season in total viewers averaging 2.293 million.

Now with the new season upon us come September, Ripa spoke with the Purist about what fans can expect now that Mark is coming into his own as her co-host.

Kelly shared, “We’re going to provide the same sort of humor and irreverence that people have come to know and love. Mark has taken the trivia game, where Ryan (Seacrest) and I would just give away coffee mugs to the audience, and decided that he’s not going to do that any more. There are no participation trophies in life, he says. If they want to win a mug, they’re going to have to stump me. I don’t really follow the ratings, but from what I’ve been told that since Mark has taken over, people stay with the show all the way through because they want to see whether or not Mark gets stumped.”

When asked what favorite segment on Live is her current favorite, Ripa expressed, “I love talking to the trivia callers. Our show is best when it’s going off the rails, when our audience gets to see the slip-ups. It is not this highly polished, Hollywood thing. It is two people meeting, having coffee, having just read the paper. We never cover actual news, we cover absurd news. When you factor in a person calling from their cellphone in the parking lot of a grocery store, what have you, it is rife with the ability to derail very quickly, and I think that’s what I love the best. I also love our viewer feedback at the very end of the show, where we take our viewers.”

So, are you looking forward to more Live with Kelly and Mark? Enjoying the duo on-screen together on the morning talker? What are your favorite staple segments from the show? Comment below.
