Neil Patrick HarrisKelly Ripa will be joined by Neil Patrick Harris at the 'Live! With Kelly' table for a week.

Harris will guest co-host the show for five days, Nov. 28 - Dec. 2.

The 'How I Met Your Mother' star will be the second guest co-host to join Ripa after Regis Philbin leaves the show Fri., Nov. 18. Harris will follow Jerry Seinfeld, who will co-host from Mon., Nov. 21 to Wed., Nov. 23.

When Kathie Lee Gifford left the series in 2000, the show followed a similar format of rotating guest co-hosts, auditioning for her replacement until Ripa became the permanent co-host in 2001.

During the week of Nov. 28, Ripa and Harris will interview Betty White, Maya Rudolph, Marcia Cross, Molly Sims, Angie Harmon and Kristen Johnston. Musical guests during Harris' 'Live!' stint will include Avril Lavigne, Hot Chelle Rae and Cobra Starship. Science Bob will also return with a special demo.

Fans need not worry about Ripa going away anytime soon. The talk show host recently signed a deal that will keep her with the show for another five years after her current deal expires in 2012.

The show itself is a totally outdated dinosaur of a show...a throwback to 50's television formats...I dont know why the network even bothers to continue it. It's too early in the day, too naive in tone, and a waste of airwaves...as far as I am concerned....who cares? It is watched by a bunch of stay at home housewives and would bore a modern woman to death! The number of stay at home housewives is dwindling and so is that type of audience.....,Daytime TV is one big bore, unless it is educational or news programming, anyway. Who watches this stuff? Soap operas are now becoming passe...and this show is beyond passe!

Regis shoud have stepped down years ago. Obvioius he is slowly losing it. Kelly is no great shakes either. Mayb it is time for the whole show to end. There is another saying Always leave em applauding. NPH is a fine talent but pushing it with a daily show.

Phish RULES!!!

Many of you don't seem to realize that he'll be co-hosting for 5 days...That's it! It's not a permanent gig. The homophobia and racism I've seen in some of the comments is pathetic. Get over it already. If ya don't like NPH, skip a week. Are your lives that pathetic that you spew hate on the internet 'cause your morning routine won't be the same for five days. One things for sure, NPH is more talented than you.

I think NPH is great!! When he has guest co-hosted in the past, he's been engaging, entertaining, funny and articulate. That show really needs some younger blood. Anderson Cooper was the best, but seeing how he has his own talk show now, he's out. I'd love to see Carson Kressley too. And no, please do not bring Mark Consuelos on permanently. He's fine once in a great while, but he's just not funny or engaging enough to make "LIVE!" a full time gig.

They should get David Letterman to host. That would really shake up Regis.I do not want to watch NPH.

I am so sorry to see Regis go. I have watched him for half of my life and he feels like he belongs in my big Irish Catholic family. Can't wait until NPH co-hosts with Kelly!! He is AWE.. wait for it... SOME!!!
