Kelly Ripa is closing out October with a little help from a couple of studs on “Live With Kelly.”

Singer Michael Buble and actor Joel McHale will guest co-host the syndicated talker over the final full week of the current month. The crooner gets three days, while the “Great Indoors” star and former “Soup” host takes two. McHale has done this recently; he’ll be a natural — it’s been a while for Buble.

Here’s the schedule breakdown:
Monday, October 24 — Singer Michael Buble
Tuesday, October 25 — Singer Michael Buble
Wednesday, October 26 — Singer Michael Buble
Thursday, October 27 — Actor Joel McHale
Friday, October 28 — Actor Joel McHale

Ripa is still looking for her permanent replacement for Michael Strahan‘s seat, which was vacated by the former NFL defensive end back in the spring. The ex-New York Giants great bailed on the late-morning chat program for the greener pastures (and earlier call-times) of ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Since then, Ripa has tried out roughly 40 co-hosts. Not all of them are pining for the permanent gig of course, but we’ve got each of their Nielsen TV ratings results ranked here for readers. You’re welcome.

“Live With Kelly” is distributed in national syndication by Disney|ABC Home Entertainment and TV Distribution. The show is produced by WABC-TV in New York and executive produced by Michael Gelman and Ripa.
