Disney-ABC’s Live With Kelly has a new round of cohosts lined up for the week of Memorial Day.
Empire star Jussie Smollett returns on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30, to host alongside Kelly Ripa. On Tuesday, Oscar-winner Common comes on the show.
On Wednesday and Thursday, Ripa pal and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper — rumored by several publications to be Ripa’s choice for cohost — will join the program. On Friday, Ripa’s husband, Mark Consuelos — a veteran fill-in host at this point — will sit next to his wife.
Guests during the week include Mariah Carey, Maya & Marty’s Maya Rudolph, Gloria Estefan, 2 Broke Girls’ Beth Behrs, So You Think You Can Dance’s Paula Abdul and Wayward Pines’ Jason Patric.
