The co-hosts chose not to bring up news of Strahan's early departure, and carried on with the show as they normally would. The former NFL pro also appeared on Wednesday's Good Morning America, but his Live! exit also was not a topic of conversation.
Ricky Gervais and Josh Hartnett were the guests on Live!, and they too kept to only talking about their upcoming TV projects.
Bellamy Young was a guest on Tuesday's Live! and admitted in a later interview on Jenny McCarthy's Sirius XM show that it was a little awkward between the co-hosts backstage. "There was some tension, bless their hearts," the Scandal star revealed. "Backstage, there was some tension because it could have gone any way."
