Now that we’re safely in the post-Regis era of “Live! With Kelly”, the co-host announcements are coming in rapid succession. Deadline reports that Kelly Ripa will be joined by a bunch of newly-announced guest co-hosts in the next few weeks.
“Dancing with the Stars” pro dancer Derek Hough will join Kelly on December 5, and Jonah Hill will join her on Dec. 6. Two longtime Regis subs will also be back: Jerry O’Connell on November 25 and Josh Groban on December 7-9.
So the next few weeks are set, as Neil Patrick Harris has already been announced to be co-hosting all next week. Of this group, O’Connell is the only one who has the potential to become the permanent co-host (i.e. he’ll have the time after his Broadway commitment is over), but it’ll be fun to watch all the co-hosts as Kelly gets used to being the star of the show.
