Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos' 'painful' new show loses viewers post-Ryan Seacrest.

Mark Consuelos started co-hosting "Live with Kelly and Mark" on Monday, replacing Ryan Seacrest.

While Kelly Ripa was comfortable co-hosting—she's been at ABC for over 20 years—viewers missed Seacrest.

"Thank you for trusting me to be your co-pilot," Consuelos told his wife of 24 years during the live show. "I really appreciate it."

The married couple hosting one of their favorite morning shows,

however, didn't excite "Live" fans as much, and they complained online.

"Your first show together today was horrible, painful," a user tweeted. I switched it off.

The same was done by "@kellymarklive". dull first day! @KellyRipa Please wait until Mark has finished his sentence before interjecting for the love of God.
