The morning show “Live with Kelly,” which has yet to name its choice of a permanent co-host to work alongside Kelly Ripa, released the schedule of guest hosts for the week of Sept. 26, with just two names on the list.
Whether this means the field is being narrowed down for the permanent job, the show isn’t saying. Singer Josh Groban and actor Jerry O’Connell are the only guest hosts scheduled during the week. O’Connell in particular has been widely rumored to be in line for the co-hosting job.
The lineup of guest hosts for next week, which was previously announced, includes Busy Philipps, Jussie Smollett, Mark Consuelos and Chris Pratt.
Meanwhile, the show is also holding a contest for a viewer to become a guest host.
Here’s the schedule for the week of Sept. 26:
Monday, September 26 – Singer JOSH GROBAN
Tuesday, September 27 – Singer JOSH GROBAN
Wednesday, September 28 – Actor JERRY O’CONNELL
Thursday, September 29 – Actor JERRY O’CONNELL
Friday, September 30 – Actor JERRY O’CONNELL
