‘LIVE with Kelly and Michael’ Episode Guide (April 8): Kerry Washington; Charlie Puth Performs

On today’s all-new episode of the syndicated “LIVE with Kelly and Michael,” actress Kerry Washington visits the program to discuss the hit ABC political drama series, “Scandal,” which airs on the network on Thursday nights.

Next, actor Sam Heughan previews the second season of the Starz series “Outlander,” which returns tomorrow. Then, “Marvin Gaye” hitmaker Charlie Puth performs for the live studio audience. Plus, comedian and actor Fred Savage co-hosts the show with Kelly Ripa on this Friday.

Currently in her 15th year with the show, Kelly Ripa took the lead on “LIVE” during the search for a new co-host. Fifty-nine different men and women shared the co-host desk over a nine month period.

On September 4, 2012, Michael Strahan was named the permanent co-host of the newly-rechristened show after an extensive search encompassing more than nine months.
