Live with Kelly - TV Show Summary
In January 2011, Regis Philbin announced that it would be his last year co-hosting Live with Regis & Kelly. His departure near the end of the year was met with many reminiscences and tears, but the show must go on, so Kelly Ripa continued hosting the beloved morning show as Live with Kelly. Kelly was joined by a wide range of co-hosts, such as Jerry Seinfeld and Neil Patrick Harris. On the September 4, 2012 episode of Live with Regis and Kelly, long after Regis Philbin had departed and a gaggle of other temporary hosts had been sitting in the spare chair, it was announced that the next co-host of Live With Regis and Kelly would be Michael Strahan. Strahan had already co-hosted 16 times, so it seemed only natural - but he was not the viewers favorite, Seth Meyers had co-hosted a few times and received more rave reviews, but it was only later that it became apparent that Meyers was being groomed for his own late-night show.

For twelve years, the popular daytime TV show Live with Regis & Kelly began as Live with Regis and Kathie Lee. But in 2000, Kathie Lee Gifford relinquished her spot as co-host of the hit morning show, leaving veteran TV personality Regis Philbin to fly solo briefly until new co-host Kelly Ripa (a well-liked soap opera actress) was found. From 2001 to 2011, the power duo brought a little extra fun to morning TV programming with Live. Their banter, the daily contests, interviews with celebrity and experts, musical performances, and a wide variety of segments that feature everything from cooking to pets made Live with Regis & Kelly a lively and enjoyable morning TV show, and the fun continues in its latest incarnation, Live with Kelly and Michael.

Should you see Live with Kelly and Michael being taped?

Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan Live
  It is billed as Live with Kelly, but the production shenanigans at this show make it far from live. Michael Gelman, the producer of the this long-running show has a dirty-little-secret. Even though the show is supposed to be actually live (albeit with a tape delay of 20 seconds), many of the segments are taped days, or weeks, in advance. The viewing public never gets wind of this as they dress Kelly and Michael in the same clothes as they will be on the day of the show and insert the taped segments into the live show. The game is up with the in-studio audience as they forced to watch pre-taped segments on big monitors of Kelly and Michael interviewing a big star, or doing a cooking segment. The producer makes everyone clap as if the interview, or segment just happened in front of them live. It is a bit of a scam that makes no difference to the TV viewing audience, but makes a huge difference to the in-studio audience. Many fans of the show have complained that going to the show can often consist of just watching a number of pre-taped segments strung together, with Kelly and Michael introducing them in matching clothes to remain consistent. This has a detrimental affect on the enjoyment of seeing this show live and in-person. Regis would roll over in his grave, if he wasn't still alive, that is.

Previous acting co-hosts after Regis Philbin
Co-Hosts After Regis Philbin's Departure:
Kelly Ripa was left without a co-host for some time after Regis Philbin left the show. To fill in the gap between Philbin's departure and the next new co-host, plenty celebrities sat aside Ms. Ripa as acting co-hosts. The show took this opportunity to test potential co-hosts by analyzing the chemistry Ripa had between each individual. Eventually the show announced that Josh Groban, Seth Meyers and Michael Strahan were up for permanent hosts before Strahan was announced The show brought in many actors, comedians, news anchors and hosts from other shows such as Cat Deeley (So You Think You Can Dance). There has been as many as 60 acting co-hosts sitting next to Kelly Ripa, including women which is not the norm for the show.
