Kelly Ripa's new co-host made his official debut today on Live! with Kelly.

Confirming weeks of speculation, Michael Strahan walked onto the set on the newly renamed Live! with Kelly and Michael this morning.

The one-time New York Giants player, member of the Super Bowl-winning team in 2008, has co-hosted more than 20 times.

He takes the seat once occupied by Regis Philbin, who stepped down from the show last November.

I think we can all agree this was one of the worst kept secrets in TV history.

Michael seems like a likeable guy though, albeit a little wacky at times:

I think he'll breathe some new life into a show that has lost a little steam since the departure of Reeg.

Do you think they made the right choice with Michael as new co-host?
