LIVE critics have predicted the talk show will be getting axed soon after Kelly Ripa’s husband replaced long-time host Ryan Seacrest.

Mark Consuelos will join the show after Ryan ended his six-year tenure on Friday with a big send-off episode.

Live with Kelly, 52, and Ryan, 48, has now changed its name to Live with Kelly and Mark as it welcomes the Riverdale actor as its newest co-host.

The big change arrives with Monday’s new episode, which will be the first broadcast of the show with its new name and its new co-hosting duo.

On the show’s official Instagram, they shared a promo video with Kelly and Mark, and reminded fans to make sure to set their DVRs for the program’s new name.

In the comments section, though, many critics slammed the new pairing and admitted they think the show will be ending soon.

“Not Interested,” one person wrote as another predicted: “This is when it gets canceled.”

“Not good,” a third follower said of Mark taking over for Ryan.

A fourth critic shared they’re “not interested either” and explained they’re concerned the married couple will only be talking “about themselves” on the show.

“The beginning of the end… what a waste,” another user blasted.


Some fans, however, are looking forward to seeing what’s to come with this next version of the long-running morning show.

One viewer shared: “Always love when Mark co-hosted! Looking forward for all that fun.”

“Let the new chapter begin. Excited to watch!” another shared.

A third fan wrote: “So excited for the new change!”


Fans said their big goodbye to Ryan’s era of Live with Friday’s big episode.

The show was filled with throwback clips, touching speeches, cake, gifts, and more.

However, fans noticed a detail at the beginning that had them fuming.

When Ryan and Kelly sat down at the desk, the words “Previously recorded” popped up on the screen.

Fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment that Ryan’s last show wasn’t actually live.

“Sad to see that his last show on LIVE was previously recorded. Can’t it at least be a live show,” wrote one fan.

“Why is this show even called Live anymore? Really disappointed that Ryan’s last show is pre-recorded,” said another.
