Live! With Kelly and Michael’s Ratings Spike


Michael Strahan joining Kelly Ripa as co-host of Live! With Kelly and Michael appears to have helped boost the morning talk show’s ratings. According to Deadline, Strahan’s premiere episode jumped 24 percent over last season’s premiere. It was also the second highest rating for Live! since Regis Philbin left the show.

 

TV By the Numbers reports that Strahan’s magic helped Live! jump 44 percent over its year-ago time period average.

    I’m not happy about the new co-host. I could think of at least 100 different hosts that could have been added that I would much rather see every morning. All I can see is that dreadful gap between his teeth!

    I don’t watch the show anyway but this won’t make me want to watch it. I don’t watch football so have no idea who this guy is and I don’t see the chemistry with Kelly Ripa either. Oh well, if others enjoy it then more power to them.

    I don’t watch football and I never saw Michael outside of his appearances on Regis and Kelly, but I like him and I think he’s got terrific chemistry with Kelly. I didn’t really care who sits next to Kelly, but I’m really happy to see Michael sitting there every morning.

    I feel sorry for anyone stuck sitting next to Kelly in morning. I mean how do you prepare to deal with her personality. She is an idiot.

    Wow I read my post and I really sound harsh. I agree I do but I just find her so annoying. I cannot understand watching her every morning. It really has me baffled.

    This guy Michael and Kelly are mismatched. He is so huge and she has gotten so tiny (anyone see her anorexic body in a bikini in a recent People. Magazine)? I see no chemistry and I miss the irrascible, funny Regis. Most viewers are up in years anyway. They should have chosen an older co-host – someone like Tony Danza, who can make you laugh about the funny things in life. Anyone can interview, it’s making fun of things that makes the audience laugh. They needed to get rid of Gelman if you ask me. Kelly is an airhead and Gelman is obnoxious. Regis was the best.

    Not everyone has perfect teeth. I have no problem with his gap. I am sure that if he really wanted to fix it, he has a few bucks stashed away for dental work.

    But as I have said before, this show just seems to be running on fumes since Regis left. It was REGIS’ show. Kelly was just an add-on. I like Kelly, but I don’t think that these two are gonna be able to keep this show running for another 25 years. Just saying.

    I watch football religiously and I can see the chemistry. Strahan is very good on the FOX NFL Sunday pregame show. In fact, he’s at Metlife Stadium for the Giants game tonight. I dont know about you but as a guy, I watch for Kelly Ripa. I think shes goregous.

    I HAVE WATCHED KELLY AND MARK SINCE THE FIRST DAY SHE APPEARED ON ALL MY CHILDREN. ALTHOUGH I MISSED HER AS HAYLEY ON THERE I FOLLOWED HER ON REGIS AND KELLY. I HAVE FOLLOWED FOOTBALL IN FACT A LOT OF DIFFERENT SPORTS AND SO I KNEW WHO MICHAEL WAS BACK IN THE DAY.

    I LIKE THEM BOTH AND SO ITS COOL WITH ME BUT I AM SURE THERE ARE PPL WHO DONT LIKE IT BUT IT MAY BE CAUSE THEY DONT KNOW WHO MICHAEL IS. JUST GOOGLE HIS NAME AND YOU WILL SEE HE IS ASUPER BOWL FOOTBALL PLAYER FOR THE NEW YORK GIANTS. IF YOU LIKE THEM YOU WILL WATCH .

    KELLY WILL ALWAYS BE HALYLEY TO ME FROM AMC SO I WATCH HER . I THINK FOR A JOB LIKE THAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO HAVE A BIG PERSONALITY. GOOD FOR HER. GOOD LUCK TO KELLY AND MICHAEL.
