Michael Strahan only had a few days off of work after taping his final episode of Live! With Kelly and Michael on Friday.

On Tuesday, the 45-year-old TV personality and former NFL player made his first appearance on Good Morning America since leaving the daytime talk show, and interviewed new mom Chrissy Teigen and Shark Tank's Robert Herjavec. He is not taking a full-time position on the morning show until September.

Coincidentally, Herjavec offered up some tips to having a successful career with Strahan. "One thing I learned on Dancing With the Stars is you have to know how to sell yourself and how people are judging you,” he shared.

Meanwhile, it's been business as usual on Live! for Kelly Ripa, who had Empire actor Jussie Smollett as her guest co-host on Tuesday, and Jimmy Kimmel filled the seat on Monday.

Smollett didn't bring up all the drama surrounding the ABC show while co-hosting with Ripa, but Kimmel made it a "goal" to make things awkward by talking about Strahan's exit. "Everything on Friday's show was hugging and kissing. Was that genuine hugging and kissing?" the late-night host asked.
