Live! with Kelly ... and Seth?

Months after Regis Philbin left his morning post of 28 years in November – shortening Live! with Regis and Kelly to the more succinct Live! with Kelly – the search for his successor is down to three familiar faces, including Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers.

According to one report, Meyers is the frontrunner. Also said to be vying for Philbin's seat next to Ripa are New York Giants veteran Michael Strahan and singer Josh Groban.

All three contenders have become regulars since Philbin bowed out, which prompted the show to rotate through a star-studded list of co-hosts, including Nick Lachey, Neil Patrick Harris and Kevin Jonas.

The Live! newcomer will reportedly start the gig in September, but Meyers begins a (test run?) five-day stint on Monday.
