NY1 anchor Pat Kiernan is getting another shot at his dream job co-hosting “LIVE!” with Kelly Ripa.

“LIVE!” is auditioning a rotation of comedians, actors and television hosts to fill the seat of Regis Philbin, who retired from the show in November. Kiernan, who co-hosted once in March, is slated for two more days alongside Ripa — April 30 and May 1.

“There are so many factors in a decision like this that it’s tough to analyze what they’re looking for. So I’m trying not to analyze,” Kiernan told our sister site FishbowlNY. “As with last time, I’ll bring the slightly cheerier version of my NY1 self and they’ll let me know if it’s the right fit for Kelly.”
