  1. Tired of all the per recorded nonsense, seems Kelly has about 3 months off a year if you add it all up, I’ve tuned into another morning show, it use to be a fun show to watch

    1. I agree. I used to really like this show but I think it’s time to move on. I’m so frustrated with these previously recorded shows!

  2. What is going on. I am so tired of the show showing reruns. I wish they would not act like it will be a new show when talk about who will be on the next day. Just be up front and tell us they are reruns.


  4. The show is not good anymore. Kelly can’t seem to talk right, thinks she’s better than Ryan and these breaks she takes. And what is with the reruns? Show needs to move on.

    1. Agree, Should not advertise that it’s live when it’s not. And tired of Kelly thinking it’s her show. I used to like her, not anymore

  5. it’s gone down hill since Regis left. they need to find better co host that will work well with each other. VERY DISAPPOINTED OF PRE RECORDED SHOWS!!!!!
