Watch Live! with Kelly

Former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan and Kelly Ripa entertain their audience with their automatic chitchat about their families, personal lives, in the news events, as well as welcoming celebrity guests and musical performances on their daily Live! talk show.

To keep it fresh, this daytime show occasionally drops its standard show format routine in favor of a particular themed show, such as their Broadway Week, and Top Teacher Week. For their annual Halloween show, the co-hosts change into a menagerie of costumes and act out the parts of the most famous people of the year. For the 2012 Halloween show titled Halloween Hurricane Telethon, Michael portrayed Oprah interviewing the Long Island Medium star Theresa Caputo (Kelly), and then later Kelly transformed herself into Honey Boo Boo. Viewer submissions are accepted for their special shows as when Live! creates a wedding for a couple who writes in the reasons why they should be married on the show and recently all was let loose before the cameras when Nashville star Hayden Panettiere was a guest and played a practical joke on Michael by telling him that she has two pet snakes, afterwards tossing a fake snake at the former New York Giants star. Live! has also traveled to several states which include Hawaii, Las Vegas, Walt Disney World and Hollywood (the show airs it’s post-Oscar Awards special in which Michael and Kelly interview the celebrity attendees backstage and on the red carpet).

When Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmerman visited Live! Kelly became horror-struck as he tempted her to sample freakish foods such as blood pudding and grilled ox heart. A guarded eater, Kelly blasted into a panic mode even before the food spread came on stage.

On the September 4, 2012 Michael Strahan was announced as Kelly’s new co-host (replacing Regis Philbin). The choice of Michael marked the end of a year-long search in which Kelly auditioned 59 celebrities to see who would make the best morning-chat partner.
