As we're sure you know, there's a WHOLE LOT of drama going on at LIVE! with Kelly and Michael ever since Michael Strahan announced he would be moving to Good Morning America.

Now that Michael Strahan is officially saying goodbye to LIVE! four months earlier than planned, the production doesn't have much time to find a replacement to host with Kelly Ripa.

Plenty of big names have been thrown out to fill the ABC morning program's soon-to-be-empty seat — Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen, and even Mario Lopez have all been named potential successors.

But according to reports, another seasoned TV personality has been "approached" to replace Strahan — and we're talking about none other than Regis Philbin!

We knew it was too good to be true…

One of the best things to come out of this whole Live! with Kelly and Michael drama is that we get to speculate for weeks about who will be taking Michael Strahan's seat next to Kelly Ripa next month!

There have been rumors that Anderson Cooper, Jerry O'Connell, and Mario Lopez are currently the front-runners for the open spot, and now one of their biggest competitors has officially dropped out of the race.

Andy Cohen may be Kelly's best friend — he's already defended her against Disney and ABC, after all — but he's mostly known for being the face of Bravo.

But unfortunately for Real Housewives fans who wanted to see the Watch What Happens Live! host transition from late night to early morning, it doesn't sound like he'll be jumping ship any time soon!

The 47-year-old spoke to UsWeekly at the Below Deck: Mediterranean premiere on Thursday where he denied rumors that he'd be taking over for Michael, saying:

Tell us about it, studs.

Now that we've had some time to sit and think about the amazing production of Grease: Live, we're still just in awe of what FOX was able to accomplish with their take on the live TV musical.

Sure, NBC was the first network to try to make theater cool again, but Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Hudgens, and the rest of the cast really shined on Sunday night, blowing us away visually, technically, and sonically.

But don't just take our word for it — the critics are all in agreement that Grease: Live was certainly the bee's knees.

Plus, it didn't hurt that we got tons of star-making moments from Kether Donohue, Keke Palmer, Elle McLemore, Jordan Fisher, and Haneefah Wood!

However, everyone did agree on one thing… Mario Lopez was kinda the worst…
