“Live! With Kelly” is by far one of the most popular shows on TV, but where the heck is her co-host? Kelly Ripa has gone six months without an official co-host for the show. During this time they brought on 51 temporary co-hosts, there has been a ton of speculation, but no one seems to have a solid answer.
It might seem like this is eventually going to cause a problem for ratings, but the opposite is true. More people than ever are tuning into Live! to see what is going to happen next.
Who could they possibly get to fill these impossibly big shoes? The best part is, Kelly doesn’t seem to mind much at all.
Recently, there was an interview with the head of Disney/ABC Television Group, Ben Sherwood. He had this to say regarding the situation. “I was on the set of Live recently. The show is in great shape, Kelly is in a great place, the hunt for a new co-host is underway, the excitement is building, and I believe the future of that show is bright.”
One of the interesting aspects of this situation is that the guest co-hosts end up to be a hit! Everyone loved Neil Patrick Harris. The Halloween special with Jerry O’Connell was a huge success. There are much more that have come and gone, and many proved to be worthy of fitting the role of co-host.
As we all sit in suspense, all we can do is wait to see what happens. Many of us will continue to watch Kelly Ripa shine, regardless of how long it takes to find a co-host.
We would be lying if we said we were not on our toes every day waiting for the big announcement. Who do you guys think would make a great host with Kelly?
