The list of guest co-hosts filling in on Live! with Kelly and Michael the week after Michael Strahan's departure has been revealed!
Strahan's final show for Live! will be Friday, May 13, leaving the show's producers to scramble to find guest co-hosts for Kelly Ripa in the weeks to come. It has already been announced that late night host Jimmy Kimmel will host on Monday, May 16, but now there is a full list of guest co-hosts for the week.
Empire star Jussie Smollett will co-host Tuesday, May 17, comedian Cedric the Entertainer on Wednesday, May 18, ABC News anchor David Muir on Thursday, May 19 and Hawaii Five-0 star Daniel Dae Kim on Friday, May 20. The lineup was announced on the Live! Facebook page.
The upcoming Strahan finale will be an emotional one, but not entirely sad. After all, Ripa and Strahan did have some good times together over the course of four years. Ripa previewed the final show recently on Live!:
"We'll remember. We'll reminisce. We're going to look back at the fun times we've had together-wait till you see all the stuff that we've done, you're not going to believe it," she told Strahan, before turning to the live audience. "So join us for Michael's Flashback Friday Farewell on Friday the 13th."
While Strahan's move to Good Morning America was bad news for many loyal Live! watchers, there is still some celebrating to do. Ripa and Strahan just won Emmys for the second year in a row for the Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host category this past weekend. The co-hosts were not able to attend due to the Daytime Emmys being held in Los Angeles and Ripa and Strahan hosting Live! early in New York.
