One year after Michael Strahan quit his gig as Kelly Ripa's co-host on Live, the network has finally found a replacement with Ryan Seacrest. But since the television personality has taken the hot seat, ratings have plummeted.

Ripa introduced Seacrest as her new co-host to her audience on Monday, May 1, and while the show received a decent rating of of 2.6 during Seacrest's first day on set, the re-named daytime talk show declined a whopping 12 percent in TV ratings from the series' week 1 to week 2.

But even worse, according to national Nielsen rating numbers, Live has dropped a staggering 25% for May 2017 sweeps ratings as compared to last May 2016 when Strahan was still co-host.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Seacrest is said to be miserable in New York City, where Live is tapped. Sources tell us he's become recluse and can't wait for the weekends when he gets to go back to Los Angeles.
