Michael Gelman said that Live! is soiling it’s wild oats when it comes to finding a new co-host. He feels like the show is dating co-hosts for a while, and he’s loving it. He said, ”We’ve just scratched the surface of people out there. We have enjoyed a lot of people who have already co-hosted, and we’re bringing a bunch of them back for more `dates.’ But I’m not saying there’s a short list. Every day we come up with new ideas, and we get new revelations about who the new host should or shouldn’t be. The chemistry is key — and not just with Kelly, but with the audience and the staff and the format.”
The first round of callbacks are Jerry O’Connell, Dana Carvey, Seth Meyers and Michael Strahan. I love all four guys, but I think Jerry O’Connell might be the best fit out of the above names. He’s not diverse, but he’s cute, funny and he appeals to housewives. Plus, he has an “All-American boy,” thing going on, which is a good quality for a daytime talk show host. I know Jerry’s done a million things on TV and film, but to me he will forever be Andrew Clements from My Secret Identity. Remember that show??
