Former Live! co-host Michael Strahan certainly went out with a bang when he blindsided Kelly Ripa with his GMA announcement — she temporarily boycotted, he continued awkwardly hosting in her absence. It was a bit of a hot mess. But all's well that ends well, and the two seemed to be friendly enough by Strahan's last day. Now Ripa is parading a string of potential co-hosts through his chair. Here's how we rank them so far.
