ryan seacrest mark consuelos Regis Philbin replacements: Ryan Seacrest, Andy Cohen, Mark Consuelos reportedly being consideredRegis Philbin announced earlier this year that this would be his last season on “Live with Regis and Kelly.” He’ll be stepping down in November. But who is going to be Kelly Ripa‘s new co-host?

The Wall Street Journal has a source close to the show’s distributor, Disney-ABC Domestic Television, that says the search is narrowing and “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest, Bravo TV personality Andy Cohen and Ripa’s husband, actor Mark Consuelos are all in the conversation.

A spokeswoman for Disney-ABC tells WSJ of the report, “It’s ridiculous at this point to be speculating about who will replace [Regis].”

Ripa was asked about possible new co-hosts on a recent “Late Night with David Letterman” and she mentioned Cohen and CNN’s Anderson Cooper, while laughing that she and her husband “would kill each other” if they were co-hosts day in and day out.

Who do you think should replace Regis?
