Kelly Ripa had a chance to gush all over teacher-turned-talk show host Richard Curtis this morning when the winner of the viewer guest host contest made a return co-hosting appearance on “Live with Kelly.”

Here are a few of the key snippets, posted by E! News:


  1. ugh. She’s soooooo annoying.

  2. This is a good example of what is wrong with these daytime programs. The hosts are grossly overpaid; and there are plenty of people who can step in and do these “interview” shows. The shows are really just ads for the guest’s latest project. The morning news host at any local television station is as competent as Ripa and most of the others. The producers could save a lot of money bringing in a few of these, or just pick one off the street like Richard Curtis. A smart producer would do an America’s Got Talent program to pick a couple of hosts who would then anchor the show for a year, while the next two hosts are being picked by the audience for the next year. Low costs and lots of free publicity, plus thousands of viewers wanting to vote and see the weekly results.
