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. The show is known for its playfulness, as well as the well-chosen content. On five separate occasions, Live has won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show Hosts: in 2001, 2011, 2012, 2015, and 2016. In addition, after being nominated on 21 occasions, Live also won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show in its 24th year. When Kelly Ripa entered the picture in 2001, the show reached a new level. She was credited with bringing new life to the talk show, and especially with boosting the show’s prominence among younger demographics. With Ryan Seacrest now by her side, Kelly will get to play off of another very worthy counterpart. Seacrest has had wild success in a range of media – from hosting the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2007 and the E! coverage of the Academy Awards in 2009, to portraying himself in such films as Knocked Up, Get Smart, and New Year’s Eve, in addition to his impressive achievements in both radio and television.

Ryan Seacrest has had a long and successful career in broadcasting, first as a radio host on Los Angeles’ KIIS-FM, a post that he still holds, and then as the host of the talent competition show American Idol. With his dedicated fan base and wide reach, he is the perfect co-host to join Kelly Ripa on Live, which is now dubbed Live with Kelly and Ryan. The concept of the Live franchise has always been that the two co-hosts are, in a way, husband and wife, chatting with their mugs of coffee in the morning. While the hosts have never been literally husband and wife, this is the basis 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. Live with Kelly and Ryan is therefore a force to be reckoned with in the television landscape, as well as a highly enjoyable way to begin each morning.

Live is a popular talk show that has found its new co-host pairing with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest appearing on this morning talk show airing in syndication from ABC Studios. Since 2001, Kelly Ripa has served as the host or co-host of Live in several iterations, first hosting opposite Regis Philbin (who had been hosting the show in one form or another since 1983) on Live! with Regis and Kelly, then briefly by herself from 2011-2012 on Live! with Kelly, and then from 2012 to 2016 along with former New York Giants defensive Michael Strahan in Live! with Kelly and Michael. Following Strahan’s acrimonious departure in 2016 to join the hosting team of Good Morning America, the show had once again been led by Kelly Ripa as the sole host, until now, where she has selected the somewhat over-over exposed Ryan Seacrest, who seems to have more jobs than he can handle.

Live with Kelly & Ryan Show Schedule

Live with Kelly and Ryan broadcasts live tapes Monday through Thursday at 9 AM. This show is promoted as being live, however there are tape delays when it is transmitted and the Friday show is actually taped from segments taped throughout the week - the hosts change clothes to record and edit the pieces together . Once in a while the show will actually record another "complete" show on Thursday afternoon, making this show somewhat disingenuous as the show's title would suggest it is actually recorded live and quite often is not.
