Last month, angel-faced NY1 anchor Pat Kiernan temporarily realized his dream of replacing Regis Philbin when he guest-hosted Live! along with Kelly Ripa. (He was predictably charming.) Today Kiernan announced that he’s been asked to co-host the show on April 30 and May 1, hopefully as some sort of callback to fill the throne permanently.
