Michael Strahan has an uncertain future on "Good Morning America" if the latest reports are accurate.

Since Mr. Strahan joined “GMA,” it is impossible to miss the hundreds of comments on social media from viewers who say that he is not a match for the morning program.

According to some fans of "GMA," Strahan appears lost while Robin Roberts seems skillful and more knowledgeable on the topics.

The former athlete was not only being judged on his performance on the show; he was already under a bad light after he inexplicably left Kelly Ripa hanging on "LIVE!"

The manner he dropped Ripa, and some of the comments he made about their friendship in the media left a bad taste in television lovers' mouths.

However, Mr. Strahan appears to be a loveable guy, always in hight spirits and often donating his time, money, and energy to various charities near and dear to his heart.

America is apparently the country of second chances, which is why many were willing to forgive him and embrace his good nature and bubbly personality on "GMA."

However, all of that went through the door the day the photos emerged showing what appeared to be a heated exchange between Strahan and Roberts.

ABC issued a statement saying the stars had an argument on the Super Bowl, but many sources alleged that it was more and the pair fought before.

Moreover, many "GMA" watchers were quick to point to the lack of chemistry between the TV personalities.

This week, a source spoke to OK!, and said that Mr. Strahan had become a PR nightmare for ABC.

The network has no idea what to do with him because while they are aware of the fact that he is uncomfortable on "GMA," he has a solid contract and they cannot let him go.

They believe he is better suited on "LIVE" - fans do agree that he completed Ripa and added extra joy and entertainment value to the gabfest - but they can not ask him to go back.

Update: A spokesperson from ABC News has reached out to Celebrity Insider with the following statement: “Totally false. The only disagreement on set was over who’s going to win the Super Bowl on Sunday.”

    I think working on those type of morning shows. It would be impossible to not have a problem steppilng on each other's toes. You have a room ful of sensitive b**ches trying to outshine each other. While being entertaining.. I just hope micheal doesnt strain his vagina in the future. If he goes toe to toe with Robin in her element. He will lose. She has the bigger penis out of the two. Good luck Miley . If you keep going up against the morning women on the shows you will go down. Good luck brother.

    Get rid if him! Gma is lucky amy and lara stick around after the way they have been treated! They are Soooo much better at the job. His hands are always in the way and it's way to hard to understand him! Time for him to go, you've already lost too many viewers because of him, if you do it quick, you have a chance for them to come back. If not I'm staying at cbs.

    Mike you make every good hearted person feeling better about life. You played hard on the field and led by example. I believe Robin is scared that more people will swing your way on the show, that is just crazy because its a news show not a contest. Grow up Robin.

    I am not a fan of Michael Strahan nor do I think he is a good fit on Good Morning America. I have stopped watching shortly after he joined the show. He seems to take of the show... it was fantastic before they added him. Now..not so much. It's Good Morning America not Good Morning Strahan.

    I agree that the GMA chemistry is upsetting with Michael trying to suck all the oxygen out of the air. I love Lara Spencer and would rather see her doing "soft" interviews than Michael. I would rather hear more from Amy, Ginger, George and Robin. Let them do the jobs they TRAINED for.....not some WANNABE that is getting big bucks because he was popular on Kelly Ripa's show. And GMA thought that would automatically help their ratings, which is really all your execs were thinking of. Get REAL again, GMA, get real.

    I am not a fan of GMA as it has become a social hour of opinions and fluffy rather than providing neutral news reporting. I like Strahan but this may not be best fit for him.

    Robin Roberts is not trying to be like Diane Sawyer or Barbara Walters and as far as Sam goes Sam left Good Morning America he was offered a better job and he took it and he still comes from time to time to do fill ins for Good Morning America so get your facts straight

    I switched back to the Today show. Strahan is completely unwatchable. I tried to hang in there but it is uncomfortable to watch him. I do miss Amy, who is the ultimate professional but that's about it. GMA's new audience format is awful - the Today show is refreshing!

    Michael Strahan is not a good fit on GMA he does not seem comfortable with the format. Asking questions he does not seem sincere, like a bad actor! Should stick to the sports venues, where he is obviously more at home, and more knowledgeable.

    I'm sure he's a nice guy but half the time he's tripping over his dialogue and can't understand him. Very obvious ABC is kissing his a** and ignoring the others. Not a good fit. Time to change channels to a different show

    It really sad when people are doing well and we can't be happy for them, Michael Strahan and Robin Roberts are doing well together and Kelly will find another Co-host and understand that everyone needs to do what is right for them and wish them well, so let's move on

      The trouble with Kelly ripa show was Kelly's ego. I thought Michael was great.

    Michael and Robin has great chemistry together. It's a shame how people want to start rumors.

    I love Michael , his exit from live was the executive decision for him not to say anything. Moving to GMA seem to be a good move for him but I think the cast was upset because of the salary that he was getting. Robin Williams will never be Diane Sawyer I feel GMA is working too hard to make her like Sawyer or even Barbara. There have been many who was a good fit but for some reason they let them go like SAM and JOSH . Now Micheal who is protected by his contract. They are probably looking for a loophole to go around. If Michael is dropped I will drop GMA and will continue to give bad reviews and will complement NBC every opportunity I have.
