Doesn't it feel like we just replaced Regis Philbin? Man, that search was exhausting.
Here we are, four years later, offering unsolicited advice on who should replace Michael Strahan, Kelly Ripa's Live! co-host of four years.
Strahan is heading over to Good Morning America, an announcement that blindsided Ripa and made for some very juicy headlines.
After taking a time-out last week to collect herself, Ripa The Peanut assured her audience that all is well with the Live! family and she's so excited for Strahan.
We half-believe her, but we fully get why she felt duped and left out of a very important club meeting.
So, to make her job easier, we've pulled together a list of 16 celebrities worthy enough to sit next to Ripa.
Well, some are worthy. Others are actively seeking employment.
Everyone already loves Shelton on 'The Voice,' and since we're stealing talent from different shows, let's just make it a network war!
Lachey has co-hosted Live! on a number of occasions, particularly when Regis Philbin left back in 2012. He remains my first choice to this day.
This one is kind of a long shot, but Shepard is so adorable in Samsung's commercials with wife, Kristen Bell. He's well-spoken, very funny and a dad, so it's my belief that the audience will fall in love with his goofy cuteness.
I dare you to argue with this choice. Imagine turning on Live! and listening to Buble serenade you as you make your coffee. Don't even get me started on the holiday season...
This guy is sexy as hell and has a way of putting people at ease during a conversation. Me likie.
Lopez has proven that he's a good host, but there's something slightly dirtbag-ish about the Saved by the Bell star that makes me want to cross him off the list. Still, others may disagree.
