After trying out a whopping 59 possible co-hosts since Regis Philbin left his morning talk show gig in November, the producers of "Live! With Kelly" have finally found Philbin's replacement to host alongside Kelly Ripa. Nick Lachey, Josh Groban, and even Ripa's own husband, Mark Consuelos, have appeared as guest hosts since Philbin left the show. Wondering who made the cut? The new co-host will be revealed on the show's season premiere on Sept. 4.
