For people who worked side-by-side for more than a decade, Kelly Ripa and Regis Philbin might not be as close as you'd think.
The late-night shakeup continues. Amid reports that NBC is replacing Jay Leno with Jimmy Fallon as the host of The Tonight Show, the network is now eyeing Seth Meyers to take over Fallon's timeslot, The New York Post reports.
Kelly Ripa doesn't just look flawless every morning on Live. She also looks flawless after a serious spin class workout! Her secret: Botox.
Dolly Parton had the chance to show off her quick wit during Wednesday's broadcast of LIVE with Kelly and Michael. When co-host Michael Strahan suggested a few new nicknames for the well-endowed singer now that she's received an honorary doctorate, Parton was quick to shoot them down without missing a beat.
A lot of new big names have moved into the daytime neighborhood this fall, but viewers are choosing to spend more time with a familiar friend. The Ellen DeGeneres Show is off to its best start in its 10-year history, ranking as the No. 1 syndicated talk program among the advertiser-favored audience of women ages 25-54 through the first two weeks of the TV season. Its overall average of 3.3 million viewers is up 6 percent from a year ago, putting it behind Dr. Phil (3.8 million) and Live With Kelly and Michael (3.4 million).
When Oprah Winfrey ended her program in 2011, insiders in the syndication business wondered where her viewers would go. No program last year took immediate advantage of the upheaval, but daytime habits change glacially. "All the research indicated that after Oprah left there was a large opportunity for Ellen, and that may be playing itself out," says Ken Werner, president of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, which syndicates Ellen.
Mitt Romney, Ann Romney, Kelly Ripa, Michael Strahan
Mitt Romney has faced some tough questions on the campaign trail, and he was presented with another difficult one during a recently-taped interview for Live! With Kelly and Michael: Snooki or Honey Boo Boo?
"Do you know who either of these are?" Kelly Ripa asked the Republican presidential nominee after her co-host Michael Strahan presented him with the choice. (Romney had said earlier in the interview that he didn't "keep up" with the Kardashians.)

"Daddy's home!" That's what Michael Strahan told Kelly Ripa after it was officially announced that he will permanently fill the co-host seat on what will now be called Live! With Kelly and Michael.
Following the duo's debut show, the new co-hosts expressed their excitement over the pairing. "It seems very second nature, and I'm so happy to be around him," said Ripa.

What summer vacation? It's not like TV took much of a break during what used to be the off-season. But with Labor Day behind us, and a handful of major fall premieres just a week away, here's a quick look at today's playlist.
In daytime (check local schedules), Kelly Ripa officially unveils her new permanent co-host on Live! With Kelly. Who could it possibly be? (Kidding; the news leaked a while back. But just in case you managed to stay out of the loop, why spoil it now?)
