Kelly Ripa’s Guest Co-Hosts Ranked by TV Ratings: From Kimmel to Josh Gad (Photos)

“Live!” has had 36 different guest co-hosts across 69 episodes since Michael Strahan bailed on Kelly Ripa — Here’s how those syndicated TV Ratings stack up so far, per Nielsen.

Strahan announced in the spring that he would leave “Live!” for “Good Morning America,” and since then lots of celebrities, from Fred Savage to Jimmy Kimmel, have filled in. Some are obviously not available — Kimmel has a late-night show — but others could potentially become Ripa’s new co-host. The question is, who?

Here are some of the co-hosts who have joined Ripa, listed by dates they guested on “Live.”
