The 45-year-old TV personality returned to the morning show on Wednesday with a bandage on his right hand. "I had a little accident, lost a little bit of my pinky,” he revealed.
Strahan then quipped that the crew on Gma were razzing him about the injury. “A guy before just said, ‘Michael, we pinky swear,'" he said. "There’s going to be a lot of jokes for a while, but I’m Ok and glad to be back.”
This isn't the first time Strahan's fingers have made headlines. Last year, while sitting next to Lin-Manuel Miranda at a Knicks game, the Hamilton creator tweeted a photo of Strahan's hands. "We sat next to Strahan. He is The Best," Miranda wrote. "Also »

After a year-long hunt to find the perfect fit, Ryan Seacrest was announced as Kelly Ripa's co-host on Live! last month. Of course, before him, several other big names filled that seat, including Michael Strahan and Regis Philbin. Philbin was the original host of the show for 28 years before he made his exit in 2011. Strahan, on the other hand, hosted the show for a little less than four years. He made his exit in May 2016, which was followed by quite a bit of drama. But despite all of the ups and downs the former Live! co-hosts have faced, both Philbin and Strahan extended their congratulations to Seacrest after the news was announced.

The 42-year-old TV personality became Ripa's permanent co-host on the long-running daytime talk show on May 1, and tells The Hollywood Reporter that Live alums Michael Strahan and Regis Philbin both reached out to him in one way or another. Seacrest says that Strahan sent him a bottle of wine, while Philbin called him on the phone. "He said to me, 'Ryan, I was most worried about doing something the night before so we had something to talk about in the first 20 minutes of the show, so just make sure you're doing something,'" Seacrest recalls.
As for his looming return to host ABC's American Idol, THR reports in their piece of Seacrest that his deal is close to being completed, but it almost »
America's Got Talent has never been opposed to shake-ups in the cast. Except for Howie Mandel, no one on the current judging panel has been with the show since the beginning. Hosting duties have been just as scattered, with Regis Philbin launching the show and then the gig moving on to Jerry Springer and Nick Cannon. With season 12, Nick is gone and has been replaced with Tyra Banks. Though it's early in Tyra's hosting, she is already proving to be a massive disappointment compared to her immediate predecessor.
Longtime Live host Kelly Ripa introduced her new co-host to audiences on Monday morning, thanking both her viewers for their patience and the string of substitute co-hosts (including Carrie Ann Inaba, Common, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Hart and more) for stepping in.
Seacrest may have nabbed the gig, but it was a long road — one filled with endless guesses and rumors — to get there. Here, the names that got the most traction throughout the year-long search.

After Kelly Ripa revealed at the top of Monday's show that Ryan Seacrest would be her permanent co-host, the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star walked out onto the Live! set carrying bouquets of red roses and a bundle of balloons. "No better way to celebrate this epic moment then to deliver flowers your P.A. gave to me," Pratt quipped as he handed the gifts to the co-hosts.
Flattered by the gesture, Ripa called the 37-year-old actor one of the "great enterers" of the ABC talk show.
Pratt also recalled getting his star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, and pointed out that both Ripa and Seacrest already had their names on the sidewalk. "My star, right next to your star," Pratt told Ripa »

I had no clue that William Shatner had an interview show called Raw Nerve. Did you know that William Shatner had an interview show called Raw Nerve? Turns out this 30 minute interview format series lasted a full three seasons on The Biography Channel. After 32 episodes the show was canceled some time in 2011. It featured Shatner interviewing fellow Hollywood royalty the likes of Regis Philbin, Jenna Jameson, and a whole bunch of former Star Trek co-stars. Recently comedian Joe Mande unearthed some edits he made to the program with comedy writer Noah Garfinkel, and they make it seem

There have been very few other TV pairings as perfect as Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. Much like the wine they sip weekly, the two women have spent nine years maturing into one of the most recognized duos in daytime. However, before 2008, the women hardly knew each other. Instead, Gifford was living a relatively private life following a 15-year stint on Live! alongside Regis Philbin. Meanwhile, Kotb was working as a correspondent for NBC. Their destiny together launched in 2007 when Today added a fourth hour of morning programming to its lineup. Originally, the hour was hosted by Kotb and NBC colleagues Natalie Morales and Ann Curry. However, thanks to a well-timed, 4-hour lunch, Gifford »
Rest in peace, Don Rickles.
The iconic comedian died of kidney failure on Thursday morning, his rep tells Et. He was 90.
Watch: Mary Tyler Moore Dies at 80
Throughout his career, Rickles had great success as both an actor and best-selling author. The Emmy winner started his work as a stand-up comedian in the 1950s after being honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy after serving in World War II. Following years of "insult" comedy work, Rickles made his dramatic film debut in 1958's Run Silent, Run Deep, and spent the next several decades working in both film and television.
In 1965, Rickles made his first appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Carson, and appeared on the show more than 100 times throughout Carson's reign. Rickles' stage quickly expanded past television, as he performed at the presidential inaugurations of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush with his friend, Frank Sinatra.
