Michael Strahan joins Kelly Ripa on 'Live!'

Michael Strahan joins Kelly Ripa on 'Live!'

After 200 shows and nearly 60 guest co-hosts, Kelly Ripa has found her co-host match.

As expected, "Live!" rolled out the red carpet for NFL great Michael Strahan, who joins Ripa as a new permanent co-host following Regis Philbin's departure last November.

Ripa began Tuesday's new episode of "Live!" - now "Live! With Kelly & Michael" - solo, taking a moment to tease that the show has found its new guy, and to thank the audience for sticking with the morning show over the past several months.

"I’ve really been very fortunate, I’ve sat next to so many talented people," Ripa said of the hunt for a new host. "I have enjoyed every single solitary person except for, like, one," she quipped. "Now it is time for a new era of our show to begin."

A beaming Michael Strahan then walked down a red carpet, greeted by confetti and a bear hug from Ripa. As the two gushed over one another, Ripa joked, "We’re like that insane couple from 'The Bachelor.'"

"I adore you," Strahan told his new co-worker. "I’m so happy to be here and a part of this. You know how you say it’s a dream come true, I truly can’t say that because I didn’t even know I could dream this."

Michael Strahan joins 'Live!'

Showbiz Tonight is there as Michael Strahan is announced as Kelly Ripa's new co-host on "Live!"

Before Michael Strahan got the job on 'LIVE!'

Back in May, Michael Strahan told Showbiz Tonight that he could still be a sports commentator and host 'LIVE! with Kelly!'

Venerated host Philbin, Strahan continued, "set the benchmark for so many people. I am in awe of him."

The hints that it was going to be Strahan were coming on strong toward the end of August, and the former football star said "it’s been hard" not to spill the beans.

"Live!" fans - were you happy to see they went with Strahan as the new co-host?

      From what I've read the ratings were already low since Regis left. I like the show a lot better now that the old fossil is gone and took all the blue haired old white people with him. Now the audience is filled with people of all colors which was lacking with Regis. Thank the lord, no more long and drawn out Regis stories.

    I saw Michael Strahan at Giants camp in Albany, NY a number of years ago when he was on the team. He blew off a kid in a wheel chair who asked him for an autograph. I've had no respect for him ever since. That is not the hallmark of a nice and decent person. He's the last person I need to keep seeing on TV so I won't be watching anymore.

      So, what makes a kid in a wheelchair different from a kid that stands? He may have had a rough day and just not in the mood to pacify fans that day. He is human and just because he is a somewhat celebrity doesn't mean that he is supposed to be "on" all the time. Yes, he chose his profession; however, that does not mean that he always has to be the nice, complacent and wonderful guy that he normally is the majority of the time. I believe you are being rather harsh in your judgment against the man.

    As a Canadian who has spent a lot of time in the USA over the past three decades, the separation between the two countries has been shocking.
    Canada has become increasingly tolerant, open minded, well education, and equitable.

    You already announced this 2-3 weeks ago. Why is this worth repeating? Are your ratings that bad? I watched you withouit Regis and it's apparent that the talent left the day he left the show. If you think this is a replacement for Regis, think again, Regis had a lot of class ...and talent. This guy is the least entertaining of all your selections. Good luck with that, you lost a viewer permanently. Time for a career change Kelly! LOL!

    I’m glad Ripa chose Michael Strahan; he’s very likable on Fox NFL Sunday and of all the guest hosts they had the best chemistry together. I’m glad I set a recording of today’s show on my Hopper before going into work at Dish so I can see how he does on his first real day. The 2,000 hours of hard drive space makes it easy to record and watch my favorite programs when I have time for TV. Ripa joked that they were like the insane couple from The Bachelor, but I don’t think any pair is that crazy!

      You racist....Your name even means "white" in french....Michael Strahan, aside from being an accomplished athlete, has been an excellent sports analyst on ESPN and NFL Network. He also has more than a few acting credits. Look up his IMDB profile. He is a very funny personality, and let's face it, the people watching that show are not rocket scientists. Get a grip honey. The best thing you could do w/ your life is probably to stop watching too much TV anyway. Stop hating on other people's success. It makes you ugly.

Yes, it's appealing to a broader demographic – the unemployed laying around intoxicated on medicaid prescription drugs mid morning. Of all people, they need this drivel least of all.

    you have to deal directly with cnn...people do not know how to play nice...and they are icey and vicious and they
    think they are funny. normally blog threats are from people on a couch, or sitting at table causing fear to
    someone. do not pay attention to these trolls–cnn also said they are basically trolls

    I think Michael is awesome. Years ago when appearing on the show "Webster", he opens our eyes to the plight of inner city youth. Mike is the best.

    I'm glad I don't watch the show anymore. I used to like it until Kelly came on board, but after that, I stopped.I can't stand her. Of all the people that they interviewed, they (she?) picked an UNKNOWN? Just because he's NFL doesn't mean he's well known. All the more reason not to star watch it.

      Unknown? Are you high? Strahan is a potential Hall of Famer and one of the greatest players the Giants have ever had! Learn something about football before you post garbage.

      Actually, he's been in showbiz for a while now. He even starred in his own comedy series a few years back. He actually has a very, very outgoing, funny and personable personality. It should prove an entertaining pairing.

    I never watched Live with Regis and when I did, it really wasn't that funny. Years and years of guest stars would appear and most of the time, you never knew who they were. They had music groups on and only if you were a teenie bopper or in your 20-30's did you know who these groups were. After a bit, Kelly's pasted smile got to be too much and so did her whiney voice. Regis made this show what it is.....certainly not Kelly. However, hope she and her new co-host do well. If the numbers go down considerably, the show will be cancelled; however, am sure there are a lot of fans there in NYC that will keep it going. Of course, when you are in NYC or come and visit, these are the tickets everyone wants.....we'll just have to wait and see. She certainly has come a long way from being on the Soaps!

    I absolutely love Kelly Ripa! That being said, I don't think I could ever watch this show now. I was hoping the rumor wasn't true. Regis was great in his day, but his time had come to move on. I would have really liked Seth Myers or Neil Patrick Harris get the job. Both were really good as fill-in's but they obviously are already committed to other things.

    I have been a fan of the show forever and a fan of the New Yokr Giants as well. I had the priviledge of meeting Mr. Strahan at a college game and was in awe of him. I have been and am still a fan of his and I am so happy that he got the job. I wish the best for Kelly and Michael and hope that they will celebrate another twenty-five years together.
