Kelly Ripa Talks New ‘Generation Gap’ Game Show, Plus Plans To Revisit Pine Valley And ‘All My Children’

HOLLYWOOD — Daytime talk show host Kelly Ripa is now a primetime game show host.

In “Generation Gap,” family members young and old are asked questions about the pop culture of each other’s generation.

“I was standing there and the contestants were looking at me, like, ‘Oh my God, give me a hint!’ And I’m like, ‘I have no idea the answer to that’ because I’m so ideal between the two generations, so I don’t know anything about everything,” Ripa said.

Additionally, Ripa’s 83-year-old father is also on board.

“We’re asking contestants to try and figure out what song Joe Ripa is trying to sing, and we’re so sure they won’t get it that we’ve raised the money!” Ripa said.

In the end, the family that earns the most money wins the game. Then there is a twist.

“The toddler of the family comes out for a bonus round,” Ripa said. “In the bonus round, the toddler’s choice, we give them a choice of something amazing like a brand new car or a brand new tricycle with Minnie Mouse, and it’s the toddler’s choice. “

Both Ripa and fellow executive producer Jimmy Kimmel contracted COVID while producing this show. This is after the pandemic prevented it from happening twice before.

The pandemic has also put “Pine Valley” on hold.

Kelly and her husband Marc Consuelos’ production company planned to revisit ABC’s former daytime drama “All My Children” in a new way.

“I don’t even know where it is in the queue,” Ripa said. “I hope it comes back and hopefully as soon as possible because, for me, it’s really, you know, it’s for me the thing that means the most to me because ‘All My Children’ is responsible for all the good things that have happened to me in my life.”

“Generation Gap” airs Thursday nights on ABC.
