‘LIVE with Kelly’ Episode Guide (Oct. 17): Vin Diesel; ‘LIVE with Kelly and You’ Finalists

On today’s all-new episode of the syndicated “LIVE with Kelly,” actor Vin Diesel stops by the program to discuss starring opposite Kristen Stewart in the war film “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.” Next, musician Carole Bayer Sager opens up about her new memoir, “They’re Playing Our Song.”

Then, the five finalists in the program’s “LIVE with Kelly and You” series square off to determine who will sit with Kelly as co-host this Friday. Plus, Weather Channel meteorologist Sam Champion serves as guest co-host with Kelly this morning.

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. During that time, she helped to build the show’s key demo ratings and kept the momentum going until a new host was named.

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. Michael Strahan departed the series for “Good Morning America” in May 2016. A new co-host is expected to be announced this summer or fall.

“LIVE with Kelly” is distributed in national syndication by Disney-ABC Domestic Television. Produced by WABC-TV in New York and executive produced by Michael Gelman, “LIVE” airs in more than 200 markets across the U.S.

Michael Gelman, who is often an on-air personality, executive produces the longrunning talker. To watch the syndicated “LIVE with Kelly,” be sure to check your listings for the time period it airs in your local market.
