regis philbin replacement

Watch Kelly introduce her new co-host! What do you think of her decision?

It’s the question on everyone’s mind: Who is going to replace Regis Philbin on Live! With Regis And Kelly? Well, wonder no more! Kelly Ripa revealed her new co-host this weekend — and she’s already drinking on the job! That’s right, it’s Kathie Lee Gifford.

If you can’t guess by now — or if you just really wish it were true — the whole thing was a sketch on Saturday Night Live, with Kristen Wiig reprising her perfect portrayal of everyone’s favorite morning-time wino, Kathie Lee.

Watch “Kelly” make her big announcement below, then vote: Do you wish Kathie Lee was really joining her?

Mark Consuelos
Dana Carvey
Mario Lopez
Tony Danza

Mark is always my first chioce. They remind me of Lucy and Ricky Ricardo. They are beautiful together and very funny
Dana rocks, he would be awesome! He just has to be careful not to talk so much that he doesn’t let her talk. If he can do that, he would be perfect.
Mario and Tony are also great hosts. Good luck Kelly!

Howie Mandel is a good choice for co-host.
So is Mario Lopez or Michael Strahan. I feel the new co-host should interact with Kelly not just sit there like a lump. Thank you.

I think Gelman would like to be co-host. If he sits any closer to Kelly he will be on her lap. I wish he would not inject himself into the show. Co-host for Kelly? Can’t think of any male who likes to dress in womens clothes for all of those skits they do.

Kellys New cohost

Posted at 9:42 AM on January 20, 2012  

Dana Carvey has been the BEST cohost so far!!! He brings excitement, humour and unpredictability to the show – everything that the show needs!! Kelly is great, but YES she absolutely needs the RIGHT co-host, and that should be Dana Carvey!!!

I would rather see kelly with neil patrick harris, they both are hillarious with eachother and plus to take over regis’s place you have to have a guy not a girl. It wouldnt be the same.

Kelly, I would like to see Gilman as host. With his knowledge and show experience he should be great. When Mr. Gumbel hosted the show he really impressed me. He knew how to make the show roll along without any help. He could also be a great asset. Don’t give Gilman a choice, put him to work on the front side of the camera.

I would like to see Kelly’s husband as cohost.

Mark Consuelos

I enjoy watching them together. They definitely look good

together on TV. It’s refreshing to see two people who enjoy

each other and can still maintain their own identity.

Kathy Lee had her day on Live. Time to move on.

Yes, Mark would be great. His presence plays well with Kelly. Kelly is very good, and with Mark C.she really shines.
todays show, December 30 a Friday, was the worst show she ever produced.

Think outside of the box – hire TWO co-hosts!
My most excellent pick:
JOHN O’HURLEY & FAITH FORD
You’re Welcome.

Please, please…not Kathie Lee!!! I would have to guite watching the show. I wo.t even watch Kathy Lee and Hoda because of her. I enjoy Hoda, but can’t stand Kathy Lee. Jerry S. Doesn’t seem Luke a good fit. Kind of dull. Many others have been better..

Absolutely NOT Kathie Lee!! It would be the downfall of the show. If the co-host is to be a female, it would be so great to have Faith Ford. Kelly and Faith have comic chemistry!
