Newsflash there are black people in the south. I don't get these racist/stereotype posts. Freepers are everywhere I guess but they shouldn't be at Datalounge.
I've been waiting for this thread; not necessarily 'the south' signature, but...
Oh and he is much better than fake Kelly Ripa. MS being on that show is what's going to save it.
OP you do know Michael Strahan hosts an NFL Sunday show watched mosty by white men?
I meant that he is gay. You racialists made it about race.
Is he the new co-host? I haven't watched any morning TV in a long time. I'd be happy if it was him - I like him. He's funny and genuine, and he's pretty gay friendly.
I've only been interested in the show when she had a gay in the seat next to her. Now that Strahan has the regular gig, I can go back to rarely checking out the program. I like him, but the show won't be remotely as dishy with them as a pair.
This was a bizarre choice. The show is going to go down in flames, and not the good kind. What kind of perceived chemistry is Kelly going to have with some big ol' football player? The two look absurd together.
she is so annoying...
yeah...it is better when she has one of us gays as co-host
Op = webmaster. Lots of empty daytime hours.Poor old fella.
r12=working class drone who conforms to the 9to5 mentality
He's not a light skinned black guy, so he's threatening to white people. When will people learn???
Yes r14 I've noticed the ladies in the front row clutch their purses much more tightly than when Regis hosted.
Obama = light skinned black guy
Shemar Moore = light skinned black guy
Prince = light skinned black guy
Chris Brown = light skinned black guy
Matthew Rush = light skinned black guy
Mayor of Newark = light skinned black guy
Joe Jonas = light skinned black guy
'Live!' Gets a Ratings Boost With New Co-Host Michael Strahan
Nine months after the departure of Regis Philbin, the newly-retitled morning show wins 14 of 15 top markets in its first broadcast and posts year over year gains of 44 percent.

It's still quite early to see how -- or if -- the addition of Michael Strahan will affect the show's ratings, but the former footballer's first episode as the official co-host of Live! did quite well according to live/same day Metered Market ratings.
The newly retitled Live! With Kelly and Michael posted a 3.9 household rating and a 13 share during the syndicated series' Tuesday season opener and ranked in the top spot in 14 of the top 15 U.S. markets.
That marks a 44 percent improvement from Live's September 2011 time slot average -- a high profile month that saw Kelly Ripa's 10-year anniversary on the broadcast and began the farewell campaign for co-host Regis Philbin.
It was the top-rated telecast since last November when Philbin left his TV home of three decades with a whopping 7.3 household rating with 23 percent of homes.
And though Live! did see a drop after Philbin's final and record-breaking month, the show has been steady year over year, even seeing boosts among women. That's something Strahan could continue to help with. During his first broadcast, viewership among women 18-34 was up 83 percent over last September, with women 18-49 (up 70 percent) and women 25.54 (64 percent) also seeing significant jumps.
Live! fared particularly well in its native New York, where it scored a 6.0 rating and 18 percent of the TV-viewing audience. It bested its closest competition, the 9 a.m. hour of NBC's Today, by 150 percent.
I love him, he is so hot. And I would rule out that he has never fooled around with men either...
Kelly clearly adores him. But like someone said in another thread,she does love her some chocolate!!
Does anyone think Regis' head has exploded over his replacement? He seemed to be pretty territorial about who sat in that seat!
r18 here. That's *wouldn't* rule out
It used to be a show was dying when they introduced a little kid into the cast, or the people on the show started singing and dancing, but now, a punt is "Ebony and Ivory."
A penised person, OP?
Michael is okay, but I don't see the chemistry.
Any commentson the Romney Interview?
I wish he gethe gop in his teeth fixed. It is ditracting.
I can take the color difference----but the gap? Noooo.
The New South
Today Michael was talking about muscles and said "strenth."
Michael is h-a-w-t!!
Anyone knows if he dabbles in homosex? ;)
And of course they both hosted the Romneys
Kelly better watch herself backstage and in the parking lot:
The Jonas Brothers are very dark skinned white guys. They are so dark skinned with curly kinky hair that they could be light skinned black guys.
Michael and Kelly are the same age. They're both "over the hill."
We don' want them R37.
You people please keep them
light skinned Black people
he's... boring as drying paint
Chi Chi LaRue was in the audience earlier this week. It was on the day that Christopher Walken was the guest - Tuesday maybe?
At the start of the show he (he wasn't dressed as Chi Chi) was on camera because apparently he caught Michael Strahan's attention by dancing when he and Kelly were walking out, so Michael pointed to him and said something about how much he was getting into the dancing.
Newer porn star Jimmy Fanz was sitting next to Chi Chi.
The delayed Halloween/Sandy benefit show was really good today. Strahan is great at rolling with all skits they ran.
Cheyenne Jackson looked hot in the segment on nudity (Carson Kressley was good too), but why wasn't the newscaster Jason Kennedy naked while he reported on it?
