SeinfeldFor the first three weekdays after Regis Philbin's Nov. 18 farewell to "Live! with Regis and Kelly," Jerry Seinfeld will occupy the co-host chair alongside Kelly Ripa.

“Jerry is a great friend of ours, and a friend of Kelly’s, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s an entertainment icon,” said executive producer Michael Gelman. “It’s a great way to kick off the new beginning of our show.”

The newly (or temporarily) titled "Live! with Kelly" will rotate guest co-hosts until it settles on a permanent replacement for Philbin.
