Is SNL‘s “Weekend Update” host Seth Meyers going to be Kelly Ripa’s new host on Live and the bona fide replacement for Regis Philbin? That’s the rumor going around. How do you think the funny man would fare in Regis’s old seat?
According to a report from Hollywood Life, it sounds like Meyers is one of three contenders, but he is reportedly the frontrunner thus far. A decision is expected by September.
So who else is vying for Kelly Ripa’s extra chair? In addition to Seth, it’s come down to Michael Strahan and Josh Groban. Yes, Josh Groban the singer. Can you see him as a talk show host? And who on earth is Strahan? Doesn’t he have something to do with football?
Seth Meyers will co-host with Kelly Ripa again for a five-day stint starting on July 9th. Some say this is when he’ll pull out all the stops in order to prove himself worthy of the job.
If chosen, Seth will stay at Saturday Night Live in his Weekend Update slot, but will more than likely step down as head writer.
Can you see Seth Meyers beside Kelly Ripa? Would the show then be named Live With Kelly and Seth or Live With Seth and Kelly?
Will you tune in next week to see how Seth fares as Kelly Ripa’s co-host?
