SNL’s Seth Meyers the Frontrunner to Co-Host ‘Live’ With Kelly Ripa

Seth Meyers Kelly Ripa

Since Regis Philbin retired from ‘Live!’ back in November of 2011, the show has had rotating co-hosts while producers scrambled to figure out how to replace the venerable Reeg. According to reports, it looks like they may have finally made their decision…

Showbiz 411 reveals that ‘Live!’ producers have narrowed down the candidates to three: ‘SNL‘ Head Writer and Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers, former NFL star Michael Strahan and singer Josh Groban with Meyers listed as the “probable winner.”

Starting on Monday, July 9th, Meyers starts a week-long stint as guest host, the longest since Neil Patrick Harris hosted right after Regis left. This is reportedly a “final audition” for Meyers, who is expected to formally be offered the job once the week is over.

Meyers, if he accepts the position, would keep his job as the Weekend Update anchor but would step back as the ‘SNL’ head writer.

Strahan is considered the backup choice should Meyers eventually pass on the position.

What do you think of the choice? Would Seth Meyers make a good talk show host?
