“Live With Kelly” has unveiled its first guest co-hosts for the month of October.
From Oct. 3 to Oct. 7, Kelly Ripa will welcome actors Jerry O’Connell, Fred Savage and Ashton Kutcher to the comfy chair directly next to hers — the same one that Michael Strahan bailed on for “Good Morning America.”
Savage, the odds-on Las Vegas favorite to permanently replace the ex-New York Giants great, will guest for three days that week. O’Connell and Kutcher will bookend the “Wonder Years” alum with one appearance apiece.
Here’s the schedule:
Monday, Oct. 3: O’Connell
Tuesday, Oct. 4: Savage
Wednesday, Oct. 5: Savage
Thursday, Oct. 6: Savage
Friday, Oct. 7: Kutcher
Oct. 7 will mark Kutcher’s first appearance on the show; Savage and O’Connell have guest-hosted numerous times already.
“Live with Kelly” is distributed in national syndication by Disney/ABC Home Entertainment and TV Distribution. The show is produced by WABC-TV in New York and executive produced by Ripa and Michael Gelman.
Those aforementioned Las Vegas odds, from oddsmakers Bovada, are a bit dated. So TheWrap identified the 10 most-likely future Ripa colleagues ourselves. We then ranked them here by Positive Q Scores — an industry measurement of a personality’s likability.
