Report: Seth Meyers Frontrunner to Replace Regis
Would co-host with Kelly Ripa and continue 'SNL' news
"Live! with Kelly and Seth"?
Since Regis Philbin retired last November, a conga line of potential co-hosts has tried his chair on for size. But when Meyers returns on Monday -- following well-received stints in April and May -- he will, tellingly, be granted the first full-week stand since Neil Patrick Harris's last year. And this one is during sweeps week.
"Others who’d like the gig have not been asked back as many times as Meyers," Showbiz411 reports. "Strahan has been a strong contender, but in the end, I’m told, it’s Meyers who has the widest appeal, background and strengths."
If the move happens, Meyers can still keep his gig reading the fake news on "Saturday Night Live." However, he would probably have to resign as the show's head writer.
"Live! with Kelly" airs weekday mornings in syndication. Check your local listings.
Now I get it . . . The Seth Meyers haters LOVE Donald Trump. Seth insulted Donald at a roast and Donald has been crying since. Donald has turned into a whiny old man and hates, insults, degrades everyone and anyone in his path. Donald thinks he can strongarm the world. His followers can only believe and think the same as him.
Seth is a great talent that can carry the show. I find his humor smart. He's refreshing on the "Live, what the hell happened to Kelly show".
I recognize that Kelly is working hard facing new cohosts everyday but she has changed into something that is not real. She's so egotistical and boring. She searches for camera shots more than that Paris Hilton/Michael Jackson lover on Jimmy Kimmel. She's funny when she's herself and natural but she is so thin, she has no chest.. Exercise is healthy but she needs a talking to.
I can't believe the show still has enough ratings not to be cancelled. Nothing personal against Kelly who seems like a nice person in general, but she can hardly carry a show on her own. I used to watch with Regis, but have no interest anymore with Kelly...I think she has gone downhill as a co-host without Regis....he made the show entertaining and she was along for the ride with good chemistry with him........
It seems her ego has taken over if you compare her with her former self in shows past. She's more blonde, more pulled together with her designer duds, thinner, more tan...etc. I'm uncomfortable watching her, it's like she's distracted by her looks and visibly thinking about her next move or next comment, her mannerisms are irritating and she leaves me wondering what happened to her "down to earth" appeal.
As far as a co-host to join her, if there is anyone with some sense in charge, they need to find somone who is actually FUNNY and can wake Kelly up from her stupor and make the show watchable again......and none of the current contenders are it.
I just wish they would replace kelly,she is horrible.
then i would start watching.
