Taking a full year to name a replacement for Michael Strahan beside Kelly Ripa on the morning chat show "Live" paid off in a big way for producers, who roped in Ryan Seacrest as co-host. The former "American Idol" host debuted Monday, giving Ripa a marquee name with whom to banter as she goes head-to-head with Megyn Kelly on NBC's "Today" show.That was never the case, executive producer Michael Gelman said, but Seacrest probably would not have been available had the show moved more quickly.That was handled so poorly that Ripa skipped the show for two days in protest.Seacrest and Ripa moved quickly into the rhythms of the morning show, with a freewheeling discussion that included Ripa's revelation of when she last had sex.
