I’ve been hoping & waiting for a new gig for TK for a while & I can’t wait!! I just hope it leads to his own show – he so deserves it! I’ll be watching!

Only when he gets there. sooooo dont want to watch that show,
but would watch HIM wash dishes! LOL

ok ,I dont want to insult anyone ,however I could be wrong ,but isnt anjelica houston,alot older then thorsten kaye Im not into the boy toy thing.any way good for him ,even though he made a remark about how stupid he thought the todd 1 and 2 story was , I thought he was wrong, the todd story was brilliant, right till the very end, when we saw victor tied up in bed.back to our story when I hear that a actor went here and another went there ,its just sad that all my children and one life to live are gone.makes it more real that there not coming back, thanks to abc.

Was targeting SMASH even before this news. TK’s role is a bonus. I imagine we may see other daytime favorites as they also have been a storng part of the theatre community. How cool it would be to see many of our AS THE WORLD TURNS stars on screen. Many of them have theatre credits and can sing. Maybe Michael Park should be on the SMASH short list?

ABSOLUTELY!!!…..Thorsten is an amazing actor.

anjelica huston…cant see her with him at all…never like kendall either.

I’m not really one to watch prime time TV, but since hearing that the amazing Thorsten Kaye will be appearing in this show . . . I will watch with bells on. Actually, I can’t wait!! I miss seeing him on my screen so much.

My wish is that Mr. Spielberg takes notice of TK’s talent and his role gets bigger!!


Playing opposite Anjelica Houston? That’s HUGE! What a great casting coup! Congrats to Kaye!

I will definitely be watching. I can’t wait to see Thorsten.

This is great news for a former AMCer. I hope that Mr. Kaye gets a chance to showcase his awesome talent and make needed connections with prime time decision makers. I also hope other AMC stars get an opportunity on this level. I know that Cameron Mathison, Debbie Morgan, Darnell Williams, and others are staying busy. Kudos!

I am so looking forward to the show..and looking forward to TK on it is only icing on the cake. Congrats to him..working for Spielberg, no less. : )

Go, Thorsten, Go–Yay! 😀

I’ve been looking to networks other than ABC and I will be sure to start watching Smash now that TK will be playing a recurring character. Really happy for him and Susan. I already changed to the Today show from GMA. Today is a much better, more informative morning show.

Good for you, Good for you!

That is why I am watching Smash, for him. The show is actually good. Love Thorsten. If other idiotic (ABC) people would recognize that the actors from OLTL and AMC are bringing viewers to watch whatever they are involved in maybe they would finally get a clue. Personally I think ABC is done. I won’t even watch the Oscars thanks ABC you came close to giving me a major depression. IDIOT ABC

Started watching Smash so I could support Thorsten Kaye… Liking what I see so far….

I LOVE is one of my Top favorite shows…so I was watching it even before I knew that Thorsten was going to be on it. But I am So happy to see him acting again! I LOVE it that he will be Angelica’s Love interest…. Men have been having women a lot younger then them for love interest for years…it is WOMEN’S turn to do that now! Smash is the BEST!

Mark Consuelos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary as Co-Host of ‘Live’ Alongside Kelly Ripa

Today, April 17th marks a full-year since Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) took over the co-hosting duties of ‘Live” alongside his wife, and longtime co-host, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, All My Children).

Consuelos replaced Ryan Seacrest who are six seasons decided to be back on the west coast full-time. For Consuelos, now having the opportunity to work off of Ripa as co-hosts has been something of adjustment for him, but viewers have been eating it up.

Live with Kelly and Mark has remained the No. 1 entertainment talk show on television over the past year, growing 3% in average total viewers to 2.23M per episode.  It is also the most-watched daytime talk show in the last year in key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54. All of this, since the real-life marrieds teamed-up.

Speaking with Deadline, Kelly Ripa shared why the two are gelling on-screen, “I do think that there is something very possibly relatable about our relationship. We have disagreements like a normal couple, and we’re not afraid to let them unfold on the air and in front of America, and I think people find a lot of themselves in that.”

Mark weighed in how he has progressed as a host, and what he could improve at, sharing, “I’d like to get better at my interviewing skills. I’d like to get better at reading a teleprompter…I think I’m getting better at throwing to commercial. The other day in the middle of the show as we go to commercial, my sign off was ‘See you guys around.’ I mean, the show wasn’t over. The most obvious thing to say would be, ‘We’ll be back right after this.’ But I just said, ‘See you around.’ So we went to commercial and one of the producers (goes) ‘What was that?’ I don’t know… So for the next few sign offs, as a joke, I’d say ‘See you around.’ We got a kick out of it.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has given huge props to Mark, “I find Mark utterly compelling, really interesting, super funny, and he’s bold in a way like nobody else. He says what’s on his mind. If he’s thinking it, he says it.  I’ve done this a long time and oftentimes people will adjust their natural personalities to pander to what they think the audience wants to hear, and Mark will tell people what he thinks, and he doesn’t care if it’s not a popular opinion. It gives him an edginess that I think is really missing in the landscape today. Everybody’s so afraid to say anything, and Mark is unafraid to say exactly what he’s thinking.”

In a statement, Debra O’Connell, President News Group and Networks, Disney Entertainment shared, We could not be more thrilled with how Mark has seamlessly joined the show family as permanent co-host. His undeniable charisma and his and Kelly’s natural chemistry are evident as they deliver the laughs and smiles to our viewers each morning. We are incredibly proud of how Live has continued to evolve and that the audience is responding so enthusiastically.”

So, do you think Mark Consuelos is the best co-host his wife Kelly Ripa has ever had on ‘Live’? How would you say he is doing as co-host after one full year on the job? Comment below.
