  • I’ve enjoyed Jerry O’Connell went he has hosted in the past. I think he would make a good co-host.

  • I like Kelly but the show without Regis is cringe-worthy. Jerry O’Connell as her permanent co-host could very well be what saves it.

    • This show was never meant for one person to host. It needs two so hope they find the right person. I have been pleasantly surprised to find her being so confident and holding her own since he left. But it still needs two to make it work.

    • I agree that they are good together and have great timing and might work but I think he’s booked up.
