He's not leaving his gig with Kelly. God she is perky.

He accidentally saw her navel and ran screaming from the studio.

Are they taking former ESPN employees to ABC in attempt to attract a male demographic for these morning shows that once were typically aimed at females?  Josh Elliot, Robin Roberts and soon to be Michael Strahan.

That will be fun for him during the fall, when in addition to being on two morning shows during the week he's also on Fox's Sunday football show.

(csb) I can confirm this assessment because I touched her butt once. With a first-baseman's mitt in a benefit softball game, back when she was doing soaps. She was probably about 23 then. She was wearing tight red shorts. I think I need to be in my bunk. (/csb)

That's no navel - she had an extensive clit lift. That's why she's always so perky.

Glad to see Strahan is doing well post-NFL. No snark. Just glad.

Michael works for Fox Sports.

Wow, it took reading the entire first sentence of the article to see that the headline is inaccurate.

So he's going to fill the gap at GMA.  Or bring one.

Doesn't he have some sort of weird lisp?  If it is the guy I'm thinking of, shouldn't that hinder his chances with speaking for a living?  I find it off-putting, myself.

He is an ex-jock, I really wasn't specific enough in my post as he has been on featured many times on ESPN throughout his career and male viewers will know who he is..  Any retired player that has experience in the communication industry, or can carry on a conversation for 20 minutes can fall into this category.  I guess I should have said anyone with extensive experience or background in the sports industry.  They could have picked any male co-host that is far more pleasing on the eye that Michael Strahan, but they chose him for a reason.  I'm also sure they're attempting to bring over the male viewer(s) that only tolerated watching his other show because of him.

I'm thinking they chose him because he's already in New York on weekday mornings and is already on a show distributed by Disney/ABC, so it was easy and quick.

What's wrong with having a lisp?

I've never noticed it. He seems like a pretty cool dude who is comfortable in front of the camera. That's a lot more than you can say about most anchors.

Yeah I watch more daytime TV than the standard man because I don't have cable. He really is very charming. Surprising too, because his image when he played was sort of like a dimwit.

Yeah, I've liked him since day one on the Fox pregame show, and the times that I've caught him on Kelly and Michael I was impressed at how seamlessly he's able to slip into that role. He's got a great combination of charisma and approachability that makes him seem like a really fun guy to hang out with, yet can turn the on-field menace on at a moment's notice.

I didn't know anybody actually paid attention to those shows. I always thought they were something you put on as background noise in the morning while you were trying to jump start your brain with large amounts of caffeine.

El Freak: I didn't know anybody actually paid attention to those shows. I always thought they were something you put on as background noise in the morning while you were trying to jump start your brain with large amounts of caffeine.


The target demographic for those shows is women.  Lots of cooking/food, shopping, entertainment, relationship, child rearing, missing attractive blonde etc type news  interspersed with occasional hard news, sports and weather  Also they are pretty much geared to the NYC , DC corridor.. Holds true be it Fox, CNN, MSNBC or the former "big three".

My wife likes to watch the Kelly/Michael show. I'm not really sure if Strahan was intended to boost the male demographic because the actual substance of the show is still stuff most men aren't even remotely interested in. He (like Regis before him) just seems to be a token guy in the studio to make things seem more well rounded to the nearly universally female audience. Sure, they want a guy who can carry on a conversation, but going from Regis to Strahan didn't really seem to make the show any more appealing to men.

Exactly why I hate morning shows. Too shallow, superficial and pretentiously perky for me.

Regis could (and would) riff on his own, and I kind of think that's why they shoved him out (together with health concerns) in favor of somebody who'd say what he was told to.  Regis was like the entertainingly nutty guy on the bus who you'd have to admit at least had a point with what he was saying.

Strahan is amazingly well spoken and charismatic, especially for someone who used to take repeated blows
to the head for a living.

I hardly ever see morning news shows, but don't care now that Strahan is there.  I can't stand him.  Yeah, it's superficial, but between his lisp and that tooth gap etc., I can't stand to listen\watch him.  I actually used to really like Rege, and a few of the other options they auditioned and I saw had potential (Neil Patrick Harris is always good, Josh Groban was surprisingly good).....Strahan was a real 'wtf?' moment.  And now he gets MORE work.  huh.

Isn't "mansplaining" typically used when a man is speaking to a woman?
How am I to know the gender of the person I responded to?
That's some fine usage of mansplaining.  Am I using it correctly now?

used to think kelly ripa was hot, until i saw her in person (wife got us tickets to regis & kelly taping here in LA). she is scary thin -- skeletor.
