Michael Strahan To Become Newest Addition To Good Morning America!

Looks like the male quotient on Good Morning America has just gone back up after the departure this week of Josh Elliott to NBC Sports!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the co-host of the syndicated talker, Live! with Kelly and Michael, Michael Strahan, has been tapped by the morning show to become their newest addition.  Exactly what role he will step into is yet to be determined and it’s unclear when exactly he will start, but he will step into the 7AM hour prior to the daily Live! with Kelly and Michael broadcast.

THR reports that, “Talks have been ongoing with Strahan and executives at ABC News for months. And sources stress that he will not replace any of the current GMA anchors; he’s expected to appear often, though not five days a week.”

The addition of Strahan balances out GMA’s very recent gender imbalance created by the abrupt departure of news anchor Elliott, and weather anchor Sam Championw hich left only George Stephanopoulos as the sole male anchor among four female co-anchors.

What do you think about Michael Strahan joining the GMA morning crew? Thumbs up? Or, thumbs down?  Let us know!

Michael Strahan should be a good addition to the GMA Staff. I know Cameron Mathison does some journalist stories for GMA. I think he would make a good morning anchor also….not just an occasional crew member.

I agree; I used to be a fan of Kelly’s. Now, she seems fake to me. I don’t watch “Live” anymore.

I find it annoying how he talks over guests on the K and Michael show. I find K even more annoying (so much so that I won’t type or say her name).

Talking over people seems to be a job requirement on gma. He will fit right on but I won’t be watching!

I don’t watch the show but he’s extremely personable. I think he’d probably do well on any talk-type show.

Millions of people watch GMA and Live With Kelly and Michael every morning. For those who watch everyday like I do, I look forward to seeing different people. If I watch GMA with Michael Straham then most likely I won’t watch Live with Kelly and Michael Straham. One program behind the other, I will be looking for different people.

It’s overkill. Like when GMA has a celebrity guest on and later that morning THE VIEW interviews the same guest who later appears on THE CHEW. Ugh.

If it’s true that ABC didn’t keep Sam and Josh because they couldn’t agree on the terms of their contracts, shame on ABC. They had a Dream Team at GMA and one by one it’s falling apart. I love Robin & George and like Lara, and if Michael can do it WITHOUT leaving Kelly, he will definitely help more than hurt. I still say ABC should’ve worked hard to keep Sam & Josh. They had a great “bromance” going and great relationship with Robin and George. I loved them on the show. Michael surely won’t hurt the show, George needs… Read more »

JoshElliot was an attention hog..he didn’t know how to share the spotlight and didn’t want to…Michael should go there and be replaced on LIVE with someone who can make Kelly interesting if that’s at all possible..which I suspect it’s not.

I totally disagree about Josh. I also think Kelly & Michael are AWESOME. Their show has FANTASTIC RATINGS! However I’m sure you like people that I don’t like too, so that’s what’s great about having a variety of shows to choose from. LOL When I was a kid we had 3 channels! Thank goodness it’s different now! Ha! Ha!

GMA is really screwing up!!! Although everyone is replaceable, you would think they would keep a good thing going for as long as possible. But I don’t care for Michael Strahan! GMA needs a news person…not another “celebrity” interviewer/pop culture “expert”….it already has enough of those!

Not impressed. How many people do they need? Looks like the desk is already full. Ginger has to stand.

Just one more reason NOT to tune in to GMA. They got rid of Josh just to replace him with Michael? What are they thinking? They got rid of one egomaniac for another? At least he’s not a full time host!

Since Michael joined Live With Kelly, I have stopped watching that show too. I do NOT care for him at all, nor do I care for the way Kelly has started acting since he became the co-host.

Michael is very annoying, I will not watch at all. Kelly Ripa, Run run and come back to acting. Live with kelly and Michael sucks now. Fire michael and bring Neil Patrick Harris as a host. Love him way better.

I quit watching the silly stuff on Abc morning a long time ago. I watch CBS morning show. I think the format there is better for adults. The chemistry, I think is good between the three on the show. I like all, Charlie, Nora and Gayle. Good mix between good, solid news stories and general thoughts of hosts without getting silly.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

REPORT: Clayton Echard Cast as the Next ‘Bachelor’ for its Upcoming 26th Season

After all the turmoil of the previous ‘Bachelor’ seasons, it looks like the ABC reality-dating competition may have found their man.

Multiple sources are reporting that Clayton Echard, who no one has seen yet, and who appears as a suitor in Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, has actually been given the nod to be the lead in the new upcoming 26th season of the series.

On Wednesday, leaked photos appeared online of Echard with a camera crew by E! News  questioning if he would be the new “Bachelor.”

Variety is saying that their sources are saying Echard is ABC’s choice for the lead, but that no official announcement will be forthcoming especially since Young’s season of The Bachelorette which bows October 19th had not even begun.

What we can glean on Echard from his Instagram page is that he is 28-years-old and from Missouri and played college football at U of Missouri and was signed as pro to play with tight end with the Seattle Seahawks, but he is now an orthopaedic saleman.

So, will you be watching the new season of The Bachelor when it comes around most likely in January 2022? Comment below.
