LIVE! With Kelly and Michael's debut episode managed to rouse the talk show's ratings out of slumber. Former NFL player Michael Strahan's first episode of the morning show — which was briefly renamed LIVE! With Kelly following Regis Philbin's exit in November — nabbed a 3.9 household rating/13 share, according to Deadline. That's a 24 percent increase from last season's final premiere with morning show legend Philbin.
