New York is the biggest market for television and the people won't watch the show without Mr. New York.
Tips must be full on crazy now.
You know you want me.
Anderson Cooper giggling
Kelly should hold out getting a co-host until Anderson is free. And he will be free soon enough.
The Ripa fangurls are notoriously silent.
Kelly is terrific, but all hosts need a co-host from whom to play off. Kelly's recent substitute co-hosts are good, but Regis just had a way about him and with the audience that was funny, spontaneous and humorously cynical.
Regis had it, and that's why he lasted so long. The other recent co-hosts are good but they're not hosts; they are actors; comedians, etc. They don't always have the gift of unscripted, impromptu gab.
I could never stand to watch that show BECAUSE of Regis' nasal voice. He always sounded congested and it bugged me the one or two times I tried to watch.
Agree r7, with the exception of NPH who does have hosting experience. But i think he is too busy with his sitcom and movies to do a daily morning show.
Kelly doesnt seem to be a cokehead anymore. Wonder how she keeps her weight down now
You can't appeal to the 70+ demographic and think that your base is going to grow.
Yesterday she appeared with a guest host and the two of them had zero chemistry. Unfortunately, the guest host was her husband!
She's an overly sarcastic bitch who's to self absorbed and unlikeable to carry a daytime talk show on her own. She needs a counter balance who's jovial and fun.
There's a reason ABC just canned their Daytime VP -- he's the idiot who let Philbin get away and dumped daytime dramas. Sometimes change for its own sake is not always a good thing.
r13, as much as I loathe Frons, he had no control over Philbin or Live.
Why don't they try a female co-host? Maybe they could get Kathy Lee back...
NPH or Anderson would be awesome.
Since neither of those options appears realistic, I'll take "Jolly, Handsome Gay Man #3"-- Sam Champion.
Another of life's great mysteries: the popularity of Regis Philbin and the concept that anyone would miss him.
I can't stand Kelly so hopefully this is a big wake up call to the network that most other people don't like her either. She has NO backbone whatsoever. Remember that one time Tom Hanks accidently called her Kathy Lee? Oh, dear - you should have seen the attitude she copped. She was a total bitch the rest of the show.
I'll never forget when Priscilla Presley put that bitch in her place when Kelly started talking over Regis, and Priscilla said, "I'm sorry; I couldn't hear what you said when you started talking and she interrupted." Kelly didn't know what to say! She had a bitchface on the rest of the interview and didn't say one more word.
Don't like her
They should pair Kelly with a co-host who's blonde, skinny, vapid, and....20 YEARS YOUNGER! Oh, the hilarity of watching Kelly self destruct in real time.
R18 I looked up those videos. Thanks! They are hilarious.
Tom Hanks here:
Wow slow news week and slower readers. The Post is comparing current ratings to that of Regis' much-hyped last week. Of course there will be a huge drop.
I don't think Priscilla was being rude. I think she was just trying to hear what Regis had to say. She was trying to make light of it.
There was no reason for Kelly to get that pissy with Tom Hanks. I'm surprised he didn't tell her to kiss his flabby ass and walk off.
Agreed about the Tom Hanks goof, but Priscilla said Kelly butt in which is not really a friendly way of speaking when she is one of the interviewers.
[quote]Agreed about the Tom Hanks goof, but Priscilla said Kelly butt in which is not really a friendly way of speaking when she is one of the interviewers.
Priscilla said it in a joking way, but bitchface Kelly has NO sense of humor and took it seriously, pouting like a little kid not saying another word. Grow up! Interviewers need to have a spine because you're not going to like everyone you interview and you get upset over dumb shit, you're in the wrong business.
Isn't this the bitch who acted like she might get AIDS from Clay Aiken's hands?
R25 You really don't like Kelly Ripa huh? Eh, ok. I really have no stake in it. I just thought Priscilla came off a little catty especially with her "I know this happens a lot." LOL
Where are the producers going with the demographic? Do they want to pair Kelly with an older spontaneously humorous host, or some of the younger actor/comedians they've been trotting out? NPH has already had to apologize for slipping in the word "tranny" into his spontaneous banter; her husband is deer-in-headlights dull. Where can they go with this?
Gawker has an article today that says that Kelly's ratings are up since Regis left.
After watching the series of guest hosts lately I have one question, is Mark Consuelos a gay man?
It wasobvious this was going to happen. Despite what anyone says, the show was Regis'. Kelly was hired because he was able to play off HER, not the other way around.
[quote]is Mark Consuelos a gay man?
The epitome of bi.
Suddenly my value is realized
If anyone is wondering why Kelly's ratings are down, wonder no longer. While getting ready for work this morning, I was flipping the channels and settled on Kelly for a few minutes. Her co-host today? Fucking loser with no charisma: Andy Cohen. He should stick with the famewhore (they shouldn't even be on TV) no-talent 'Housewives' where he's already ruined one network.
Ripa and Cohen's "host chat" and banter with each other was dreadful. I only stayed with the show since I was leaving the house shortly and wanted to see how truly awful it was. The show sucked beyond words.
Say what you want about Regis, but the guy had the gift of gab--spontaneous and funny. Okay fine, Regis had to retire. But Andy Cohen doesn't even come close to serving as a worthy replacement.
r32 is quite correct. And also, Tom Hanks was an ass in that video. He didn't even apologize right away like "Oh, Kelly, I am SO sorry" or even try to show any contrition. She had a right to be rather insulted and say what she did. And she did it with good humor. Not defending her, overall, because she CAN be quite over the top sometimes but Tom Hanks just looks and acts like a bloated, alcoholic, self-congratulating mess in that clip.
He didn't exactly "play off" her, he depended on her to tell him who was seated on the other side of him. He depended on her to pronounce the name of each guest. He depended on her to remind him of why the guest was on the show. He depended on her to cover up when his anger boiled over. He depended on her to to cover up his nasty or tacky comments.
Did anyone see when Kelly said on the show which one of her kids is her favorite. Yikes! Something like that would have devastated me as a young child.
I've seen her already with Jerry Seinfeld, Josh Groban, Taye Diggs, and her boring husband Mark as her temp co-hosts... the banter was dreadful for all of them. The show isn't going to last.
Ironically, Regis, who was edged out because he's past it, will have the last laugh.
I like Kelly a lot but bring her husband on would be a mistake. NPH has a very naughty side(Kelly's "in"box)and I believe he one joke away from saying something scandalous. Someone floated Tony Danza's name around but he got a resounding "Boo!"from Wendy Williams audience(I know,not a good reference)
Jerry Seinfeld was horrific,completely unfunny without a script to follow.
Kelly loves and has a great rapport with Anderson but he probably is tied down to his own daytime show for at least a year.
Why is Kelly only attracted to gay men?
My price just went UP!
Her switching to the other chair was a jarring visual blunder, also.
She thinks she is funny, but she tries too hard. Regis made it look easy.
If you look at old videos of the show you can really see how much weight Kelly has lost and how hardened she has become physically.
What about Alan Thicke as Regis' replacement? He's older, handsome, and well known (at least to an older crowd). He's also quick witted and self deprecating. He has hosting experience...
But maybe he's "too LA" though I'm sure he has LOTS of interesting stories about A-listers he's encountered over the years.
Not Alan Thicke or his agent, I swear
She may not be a coke whore, but she's on uppers of some kind.
She has a hard time keeping her mouth shut and she can't let a guest finish a sentence.
If they had Mark present his hole, I would tune in!
In that Tom Hanks video it didn't seem to me he accidentally called her Kathie Lee - he was referring to the show itself when Kathie Lee was still on it. And thus Kelly was the bitch for saying "the name is Kelly now."
[quote]For the moment, at least, the departure of Regis Philbin from his longtime perch in the morning has not sent his former show’s ratings into a tailspin.
[quote]In fact, the numbers look quite good, so far, for the version of “Live” now hosted by Kelly Ripa, who has been accompanied by a succession of guest co-hosts.
[quote]The show reported on Wednesday that by virtually every measure, “Live” is faring better under Ms. Ripa solo than it did at this point last year when Mr. Philbin was still on board.
Thank you R49- the ratings are fine w/o Regis and will people stop saying the show is a sinking ship!
Kelly Ripa's agent
To be completely clear, I don't give a shit about this show, just sharing a link.
Like most adults with jobs, I don't watch daytime TV.
Mark Consuelos is definitely NOT a gay man. I assure you of this.
"Live with Kelly" will not successfully pull off the unique feat of a female host/boss with a subordinate male "co-host." Not permanently, that is.
What Kelly needs is a female co-host.
[quote]What Kelly needs is a female co-host.
Please not famewhore flutterer Andy Cohen.
I think Andy Cohen would be great on this show. I still wouldn't watch it, but I think he'd be great.
R55. Did you watch Kelly and Andy this morning? It was the worst piece of crap ever. He's terible.
Andy and Kelly are good friends, but even she seemed to be a little irritated with him being so over the top and hyper.
I love the posters who claim they don't give a shit about something, but not only go to the trouble of searching for a link, but then take the time to copy and paste certain parts of said link.
So much effort for someone who doesn't care.
Funny, The Hollywood Reporter is saying just the opposite.
I don't even like Priscilla Presley, but I'm glad she cut Ripa down to size with this. Ripa had it coming.
R59, see R49.
Is kelly one of the most powerfulwomen on tv
Looks like Josh Groban has the inside track right now.
Are they still doing the revolving door hosts? You would think they would have made someone an offer already.
I'm 64 and I love kelly! I have kind of enjoyed having different co-hosts. It makes the show different from other shows. We all know that Regis can't be replaced so just get over it and see what the net work decides to do. Ever heard of keeping an open mind?
David Duchovny was so boring today-devoid of any personality outside of acting.
The new co-host won't be revealed until February sweeps, or maybe not until May, again for a sweeps boost.
Unless this show tanks completely.
Kelly Ripa and Michael Gelman are among the luckiest people in show business.
Neil Patrick Harris has been the best co-host so far. He's the only one who can improv well enough to keep things interesting. It looks like he's been playing it safe so far, but if he got the gig full time I think he would cut loose over time and make the show really fun. Like Regis did over the course of his life.
My favorite exchange between them was when they had the beach balls flying around the house prior to the daily contest last summer. Kelly disliked the them saying "don't cha hate waking up every morning to have balls flying in your face?" to which NPH replied "Speak for yourself!" with a sly smirk. Priceless.
I like the show. Its a nice alternative to the bazillionith hour of "The Today Show. Kelly is fine. After 9+ years, she's earned her stripes. With the right co-host the show will stay strong.
I really didn't think Kelly could do it on her own, but Anderson is not the answer I definately wouldn't watch any more. Daytime on Abc is over for me without soaps and regis.
Live with Kelly is on the CBS affiliate station in my city. So it must be a syndicated show and not considered part of ABC daytime programming, R69.
Not that you shouldn't hold a grudge against ABC daytime, I'm just saying maybe the Live show shouldn't be lumped in with the rest of the ABC morning/afternoon lineup.
And I do think that Anderson does much better when paired with Kelly than he does on his absolute snooze of a talk show.
Is anyone really shocked? This was going to happen. Despite what may seem his many detractors (at least according to what I read on this site - and that leads me to think that his detractors are actually not that many), Regis was born to do what he was doing. He could be sitting beside a complete dud and still make that hour work. It was always Regis and Whoever. Now, with him gone, Kelly is expected to carry a show in a schedule full of wanna-be talk show hosts and talking heads. Was never gonna work.
I hated Regis, the show is so much better with him gone.
Anderson would be PERFECT with Kelly and he was her main choice. His show may be headed for cancellation and he should get on board with Kelly because that would work if he wants to do this daytime thing.
NPH is good in small doses - but everyday? He could be annoying.
And the title - "Live with Kelly and Neil Patrick!" - doesn't fit.
Maybe they'll go all street cred and retool it as "Live with K.N.P."!!!!!!!!!!
"K.A.N.P" (pronounced 'camp')
Actually, the information stated in this thread about ratings being down is misleading. Yes, the rating have gone down from the last week or two that Regis was there -- but the ratings for those couple weeks were artifically inflated because it was Regis' last couple weeks. They normally did not get those ratings that they got during his goodbye weeks.
The ratings for this week are down .1 in the demo over the same period last year (last year 2.9, this year 2.8). Down a tick, yes, but the show is not bombing. I think people predicted that ratings would drop wildly without Regis, and that has not happened.
Oops, that should say down .1 in Households, not in the demo.
If you google 'tv by the numbers' you'll see that Kelly is generally the top rated syndicated talk show, sometimes beaten by Dr. Oz but consistently ahead of Ellen DeGeneres, whose ratings nobody seems to question.
There are probably a lot of old bittys who must be in a blue-haired funk since their Regis is gone.
[quote]NPH is good in small doses - but everyday? He could be annoying.
Ditto. He's okay every now and then, but he's kind of irritating after awhile. He thinks that everything he says is so clever.
As much as OP wants the ratings to be in the basement, Kelly and guest hosts have one of the top rated talk shows on TV. She's much more relaxed now that she doesn't have to be ready to jump in like she did when Regis would screw up several times on a daily basis.
r75 = Gelman.
We know you're gay, too!!!!!!!!!!
I think Oprah has some free time on her hands...
Kelly originates at WABC-TV which owns the show and is syndicated by Buena Vista, a Walt Disney Company.
Kelly brings the husband in too much guess they are grooming for perm job for him. The husband is now traveling with her so they give him a co host to justify his free trip
Bad choice for a cohost can't watch you anymore
She grates on my nerves. The only time I see this show is when I;m at my mother's house and she forgets to change the channel at 9:00 AM. I see a few minutes of it every month or two and the show is AWFUL. I would never intentionally watch it. Ever.
I like Strahan. Give him a chance to get comfortable in his role.
Depending on how you spin the numbers, this thread title is actually not true. The show sucks, but some out there feel the ratings are just fine.
LIGHT skinned blacks are in. This dark skinned guy is too threatening to white women. They think he'll reach through the screen and do the rape on them.
Strahan is just fine.
R90 be quiet, you know not of what you speak.
I have nothing against Strahan, but I find him boring on the show, and he's not really that famous. Kelly picked a wrong choice as co-host.
You can tell that Kelly likes hugging him. He's a big adorable teddy bear of a man.
He does have a nice body, he's HUGE.
I'm just so tired of black people being used to save money. You see it on too many programs. But, in todays market the temptation must be too hard to resist. Every show seems to have their mandatory black, and yet the hispanackies out number the blacks two to one they only get to news reports in the field.
It is not him, it's her. Can't stand waching that (former druggy?) anorexic shrill. Everyone pretends that she is't anorexic. drug of choice coke. Marc can drink with the best of em
r88, you are telling OP of a thread that was created nearly a year ago that their title isn't accurate. It's great that you present supporting documentation for your point, but you look a little goofy for saying that your information on current ratings is contrary to the numbers from last December.
Kelly is a coke whore
Well, kinda goofy this thread was bumped up, R98.
Maybe so, r101. That happens a lot on DL though.
Michael Strahan is hot as fuck.
I said I would never watch Kelly Live again with her new co-host. He is just not a good match.
She needs somebody like Martin Short or the fellow from Saturday Night Live.......that's why the ratings are down.
[quote]She needs somebody like Martin Short
Oh Martin, give it a rest. You're over. But thanks for visiting DL.
