Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan will be keeping viewers laughing in the mornings for many years to come. ABC-owned stations recently renewed the Disney/ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution program through the 2019-20 TV season.

“We are exceptionally proud of Live's unparalleled success and are thrilled to extend our highly valued partnership with the ABC-owned stations for many more years to come,” said Disney/ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution President Janice Marinelli in a released statement.

Live, which began its syndicated run in 1988, is still a big hit among daytime television viewers.  “Audiences love watching Live With Kelly and Michael. During the last week of 2015, the show achieved a 1.8 rating with women 25-54, the highest rating in that demo of any talk show this season,” added ABC Owned Television Stations Group president Rebecca Campbell. “Produced by our owned station WABC-TV, we are extremely proud of Live's ability to innovate and connect with viewers and look forward to that continuing into the next decade.”

ABC-owned stations also renewed syndicated game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
