Just in time for Seth Meyers to begin a five-day stint as The Person Upstaged by Kelly Ripa, Hollywood gossip Web site Showbiz 411 reports that Meyers is in the lead to replace Regis Philbin as permanent co-host of “Live With Kelly.” Ripa’s been without a Permanent Person to Upstage since Philbin threw in the towel last November.

The site notes the undeniable fact that the “Saturday Night Live” head writer is guest co-hosting during the July sweeps period, and that he also subjected himself to the ordeal in April and May. Guy’s got stamina.

The site names Josh Groban as another front-runner — Groban’s getting the Ripa treatment three days the following week.
