Seth Meyers is one of three people in the running to co-host Live with Kelly Ripa. The three names in the running are Seth Meyers (SNL), Michael Strahan (former football star), and Josh Groban. Three really odd choices, but great picks!
Starting this Monday, Seth will co-host for a week, which I think happens to be in the middle of sweeps. So we’ll see how he does! If Seth ends up getting the gig, he will supposedly still do the news on SNL, but will most likely have to step down as head writer. Which means SNL will be down another great.
I would be sad to see Seth take a lesser role on SNL, but the news is his baby anyway, and that’s where he really shines…so at least we’ll still have that. As for Seth on Live, I think it’s an amazing idea. It would certainly bring in a younger demo, and liven things up a bit! Go Seth!
