Seth Meyers is not going to join "Live! with Kelly" as a permanent co-host. Following report which said he's the frontrunner to be Regis Philbin's replacement, the comedian answers, "No, no, no, no, no," when asked by the Orlando Sun Sentinel if he will take the job.

The "New Year's Eve" star further indicates that he won't leave his current job as the head writer on "Saturday Night Live". "I know [Regis' replacement] is a very important thing down there," he adds. "But, right now, what I would say to you: I'm really in love with the job I have. I'm very excited to be going back [to 'SNL'] for the election season, which is always fun."

Previously, it was said that Meyers was the top candidate to be a permanent co-host to accompany Kelly Ripa. Two other strong contenders reportedly were former NFL player Michael Strahan and singer Josh Groban. All of them have appeared on the ABC talk show as guest co-hosts, with Meyers returning to co-host all episodes this week.
