Live with Kelly & Mark Show Schedule

Live with Kelly and Mark broadcasts Monday through Friday at 9 AM. Most shows are not live.

Bait And Switch on The "Live" Aspect

This show is often promoted as being "live", however it is has not been in that format for many years.
This show is mostly pre-recorded and there are long tape delays before the show is actually transmitted.

The Friday Show Frankenstein

The Friday show is actually created from segments recorded during the Monday - Thursday shows and then just edited together. Kelly and Mark change clothes during the weekday shows to record the bits and interviews for the Friday show. The show staff then edit the pieces together and pretend its a live show on Friday.

Duplicitous Hosts and Producers

Once in a while, instead of recording segments throughout the week, this show will actually record another "complete" Friday show on a Thursday afternoon. This make the show somewhat disingenuous as the show's title would suggest or imply it is actually recorded "live" and most often it is not.

Some Broadcast Shows Are Weeks Old

Sometimes a "live" show that is broadcast may be weeks old, so they may choose a subject to discuss that is not time sensitive and they scam the audience into believing that the show is live. Occasionally they may show the "previously recorded" title at the start of the show.

The disingenuous taping tactics at Live demonstrate that this show likes to treat its viewers like idiots.

Consuelos doesn't do much nowadays and with his children all grown up, the opportunity to replace Ryan Seacrest on Live is something that will get him out of the house.

Live with Kelly & Mark Background

Show Formerly Known as Live! With Kelly and Ryan

Ryan Seacrest debuted on Live With Kelly and Ryan in 2017, and became a fixture of the daytime TV show. The format of the show allowed Seacrest to satisify his ego with countless celebrity interviews and the opportunity for him to impart personal anecdotes from his life behind the scenes in TV land. When he first joined the show he only meant to stay for three seasons. But he enjoyed hanging out with Kelly so much that he renewed his contract for another three seasons.

Final Ryan Seacrest Show Friday, April 14. 2023

Seacrest is going to take a break from being in front of the camera and now focus more on the popular The Kardashians TV show, where he is the creator and producer of the show. Ryan Seacrest left the show on Friday, April 14. 2023, making it the only "live" Friday show in five years.

Top Rated Show in Key Metropolitan Areas

Live has regularly been the top-rated morning talk show in America. In big cities such as New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Miami and San Francisco, it often ranks number one in terms of ratings. With viewership averaging 5 million per episode, Live dominates the market in its morning time slot – and for good reason.

Format Of The Show

Each day begins with a casual off-the-cuff conversation between the co-hosts, followed by the opportunity for a home viewer to win a vacation by answering a trivia question. The remainder of the 42 minute program is dedicated to a mixture of celebrity guests, musical performances, and recurring segments on a range of topics including health, fashion, food, and lifestyle.

The Show Is Often Not 'Live' At All

The producers of this show have taken the word 'Live" and stretched the truth on the taping reality. Many weeks of the show are not live at all, some shows are just reruns and other shows are shown with a taping delay.

Even more shows are spliced together, where the producers have the hosts make a costume change for a segment where they can splice it with other segments from other days to make up many 'Frankenstein' shows - the change in hairstyles is often the biggest giveaway.

  • Regis Philbin 1988–2011
  • Kathie Lee Gifford 1988–2000
  • Kelly Ripa 2001–present
