Jimmy Kimmel to guest-host Live with Kelly Ripa
Jimmy Kimmel is about to work day and night to help ABC.
The host of Jimmy Kimmel Live will serve as the first guest co-host on Live! with Kelly and Michael, the show announced on Tuesday. Kimmel will appear on the May 16 installment alongside Kelly Ripa, filling the void left by Michael Strahan, who will be exiting the morning show as he prepares to join Good Morning America.
“I want Kelly to know up front that I’m only staying for one morning,” Kimmel said in a statement to EW.
A series of guests hosts will crack wise with Ripa while ABC searches for a permanent replacement for Strahan, who filled the slot vacated by Regis Philbin in 2011.
