Regis Philbin retired from Live! With Regis and Kelly on November 18, 2011.  Since then, Kelly Ripa has had a long list of guest co-hosts.  One of these guests could be permanently occupying the seat next to Kelly on Live! With Kelly and ?  But when?

Mark Consuelos, Kelly's husband is a nice diversion but would probably not be chosen as her permanent #2, other than the permanent #2 position he already occupies as her husband. Too much of a good thing for us to see everyday.  Also, I get the feeling that the two of them would be exhausted if they had to carry on their banter every day.

The powers that be probably want to be really sure they find the right guy or gal (I think guy).  Here are some of the guest co-hosts that Live! with Kelly has featured.

Martin Short, Ed Robertson, Seth Myers, L.A. Reid, Taye Diggs, Reggie Bush, Chris Harrison, Sam Champion, Jimmy Kimmel, Nick Lachey, Michael Strahan, Ben Mulroney, Josh Groban, Pat Kiernan, Matthew Broderick, Mario Lopez, Jesse Palmer, Mike Greenberg, D.L. Hughley, Joel McHale, Carson Kressley, Howie Mandel, Peter Facinelli, Daniel Abrams, Jerry O'Connell, Dana Carvey, Kyle MacLachlan, Alec Baldwin, Lucy Lui, Neil Patrick Harris, Daniel Radcliffe, Carrie Ann Inaba, Cat Deeley,
Kristin Chenoweth, Mary J. Blige, Kim Kardashian, Matthew Morrison, Tony Potts, Andy Cohen, Michael Buble, Bryant Gumbel, Kevin Jonas, Randy Jackson, Derek Hough, Apolo Anton Ohno, Boomer Esiason
Carl Edwards, Rob Lowe, David Duchovny, Jim Parsons, Jonah Hill, Jerry Seinfeld.

I loved watching Peter Facinelli and Neil Patrick Harris co-hosting with Kelly Ripa.  I don't know if these guys are even interested in the gig.  Rumour has it that Michael Strahan is a top contender for the post.  I have to admit I didn't watch the shows where Michael co-hosted so I can't give my opinion on this.

Of the above list, who do you want occupying the seat next to Kelly Ripa on Live!?  Comment below.

  1. I forgot to mention Anderson Cooper in my list. Anderson is pretty busy these days with his new daytime talk show and CNN. Do you think Kelly can convince Anderson to join her as a co-host? I guess it may depend on his present ratings??
