When Regis Philbin announced that he was set to retire from morning television, audiences and producers had no idea who would replace him as the permanent co-host of the show that would no longer be known as Live!

And since Philbin’s final episode, ratings have dipped dramatically as the seat next to Ripa has become a revolving door for guest hosts Jerry Seinfeld, Josh Groban and her husband, Mark Consuelos — just as it was when Kathie Lee Gifford first departed the show and Ripa tried out her soap opera acting chops on live morning television.

However, after taking a second and more fair look, the ratings of Live! With Kelly look quite good…in fact, they’re better than when Philbin was sitting beside her! More details after the jump.
