Should Ripa fans (that's us) expect to see another big show change in the New Year? Apparently, ABC recently announced that on November 9th, the day after America votes for our next President, the November 9th episode of "Live! With Kelly" hosted by the one and only, Kelly Ripa, will also be co-hosted by Fox News host, Megyn Kelly! The news was officially tweeted by the "Live! With Kelly" official Twitter account:
We do know the last time the network made a change, Ripa was the last to know but, this time it sounds like those execs have learned their lesson and will treat Ms. Ripa with the utmost respect she deserves! Point is, it's no secret that Ripa and the show team have been on the hunt for a replacement co-host ever since Michael Strahan left Live! in May 2016.
The question is, does Ripa even need a "full time" co-host?
America's morning show sweetheart is killing it on her own! Ripa has been keeping fans entertained with a round robin of guest co-hosts including Anderson Cooper, Fred Savage, hubby Mark Consuelos, Kevin Hart, and Andy Cohen, to name a few. There has been plenty of speculation about who will fill the seat next to Ripa, but no official decision has been made.
It is still possible the Nov. 9th "Kelly and Kelly" episode could be a test for fans. Megyn is no stranger to pulling in prime time ratings. The lawyer is the host of The Kelly File on the Fox News Channel weekday nights. Megyn's prior hosting gig was, America Live and America’s Newsroom. Kelly was also included in Time’s 2014 list of 100 most influential people. Megyn is a political commentator, and will no doubt discuss the outcome of the election on November 9th with Ripa. Her political prowess could bring a whole new perspective to the conversation on Live! The WANNA would love to see these two intelligent, powerful ladies host a show together! Double the blondes equals double the fun!
The Live! With Kelly guests on November 9th are Naomi Watts and Michael Ealy. Be sure to tune in on November 9th to catch Kelly and Kelly together!
