'Live! With Kelly' Ratings Down Without Regis Philbin

Although the first post-Philbin show attracted good ratings, recent figures show that they have since plummeted.

I told Gelman they'd never make it without me!

New York is the biggest market for television and the people won't watch the show without Mr. New York.

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.

by Anonymousreply 812/21/2011

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

by Anonymousreply 3512/22/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 3612/22/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 3712/22/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 3812/22/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 3912/22/2011

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.

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.

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.

"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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 6701/04/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 6901/26/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 7001/26/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 7401/26/2012

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.

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.

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.
