Kelly and Michael: Cat with Crossed Eyes
After splitting her pants upon sitting down for the show, Kelly Ripa introduced the audience to Internet sensation Jarvis P. Weasley, a five-year-old cat with crossed eyes. That led to the hosts attempting to cross their eyes. When they were both successful, they seemed to be very proud of themselves.
Kelly & Michael: Five-Second Rule Science
When you drop food on the floor, do you believe in the five-second rule? Michael Strahan said a new study has concluded there is scientific evidence to support this. “The length of time it’s been on the floor does influence how many dangerous germs” contaminate the food, he explained.
Kelly said she thinks it matters where you drop it. Carpeted surfaces transfer fewer germs than tile, according to the research, which surprised Gelman and Kelly. “It’s worse to clean up if you drop a pizza on it, though,” Michael added.
An amazing 87% of those surveyed admitted they would eat food that had fallen on the floor. More than half of those respondents were women, and Kelly attributed that to motherhood, when moms subsist on their kids’ leftovers.
Michael said he over-orders for his children so he can eat the leftovers. Kelly said she was craving a McDonald’s quarter pounder with a Shamrock Shake, which is currently in season.
Kelly and Michael: Movies on Broadway
A new trend on Broadway is adapting movies into stage productions. The latest in development is the Julia Roberts classic film Pretty Woman. Rocky is currently on Broadway, and staffer Schully gave it a rave review.
Adaptations of Aladdin and Bullets Over Broadway are also coming soon. Michael wants to brainstorm a movie so he can take it to Broadway. Kelly suggested just doing Live! on Broadway.
Kelly recommended Broadway shows to anyone visiting from out of town, because “the real stars are on Broadway.” Michael said it’s very impressive that these performers do the shows eight times a week, which both hosts think was exhausting.
