Viewership for Live! With Kelly in November 2011 was up 12 percent compared to the same period last year at Live! With Regis and Kelly.

Perhaps Kelly Ripa's rotating guest hosts have something to do with the show's improved numbers; in recent weeks, she's shared the stage with Jerry Seinfeld, Neil Patrick Harris and Josh Grobin.
