Plans for the post-Regis Philbin “Live with Kelly” era continue to build. In the latest news, Neil Patrick Harris has been tapped to co-host the show alongside Ripa for an entire week, from Nov. 28 – Dec. 2.
Philbin’s last day as co-host will be Friday, Nov. 18. He’ll be saying goodbye after almost 30 years at the show. In recent weeks, a cavalcade of stars — Monday (Nov. 14) Jimmy Fallon and Don Rickles — have stopped by to bid Reeg a fond farewell.
But, life — and “Live” goes on. Jerry Seinfeld has already been named as the first post-Regis host. He’ll be paired up with Ripa from Nov. 21 – 23 before the show goes dark for the Thanksgiving break.
Both Seinfeld and NPH have guest-hosted in the past.
The guests slated to stop by the newly-named “Live with Kelly” the week NPH is on hand include Betty White, Maya Rudolph, Marcia Cross, Avril Lavigne and Cobra Starship.
