This popular and long-running morning talk show owes much of its success to the chemistry between its two hosts, Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa. Although the format is not significantly different from most other morning shows, viewers are attracted to the pair's conversations about their families and personal lives. Written by

The show keeps making more and more prerecorded shows and host chats.
They have been airing prerecorded shows for the last month! How can the
show be called Live! I have been watching it for many years and every
year they do less and less live shows. They should re title it because
it is deceptive to the audience. When Regis and Kathie Lee were on, the
show was much more respectful of its audience by airing live shows.
When Kelly first started, they continued to do so in the beginning, but
as time went, more shows were prerecorded. These last couple of years
have been ridiculous. Several times a year, they air prerecorded shows
for several weeks! The host chats are usually very brief and they never
discuss any newsworthy issues (how can they?)--they stick to general
topics to mask the fact that it's all prerecorded. It is frustrating to
watch on a daily basis and now, as soon as I realize that the show is
prerecorded (they indicate it at the bottom of the screen very quickly
during host chat), I turn off the television. Nothing wrong with it but
don't call the show Live!
