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 another guy with him.

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!

Thumbs up! I love Michael. Kelly did a TV series Hope& Faith while she also did Live. It will work out well! I am very happy to hear this. 🙂

I forgot about that Carlsie, but I hope they don’t spread Mivhael too thin. He is GREAT!

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.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
