While the women of both The View and The Talk are sitting this week out, the others are still around to chat up a variety of guests. Current late night host (Jimmy Kimmel) and former “late, late” host (Craig Ferguson) will be stopping by the set of Live with Kelly and Ryan (Kimmel on Tuesday; Ferguson on Thursday) while Michael Strahan and Sara Haines welcome a number of entrepreneurs (both as judges and contestants) for a Side Hustle Showdown all week long.
