Welcome back, Kelly Ripa — we’ve got some good news and some bad news.
Let’s start with the positive stuff, shall we? After all, you seem like a bubbly person. “Live With Kelly” jumped 9 percent on average across its Season 29 premiere week, despite a lack of stability in the co-host chair, and even with Labor Day slowing things down a bit.
Of course, that increase was just over the prior week, when you were in reruns. Versus the Season 28 premiere and sans Michael Strahan, you actually slipped 7 percent year over year. There’s the womp-womp.
