Pat Kiernan's Neil Diamond 'Live With Kelly' Pitch Takes On Nick Lachey For Co-Hosting Duties (VIDEO)

If you didn't already know it, NY1's morning anchor Pat Kiernan really enjoys co-hosting "Live! With Kelly."

After finally receiving the chance to co-host alongside Kelly Ripa in March, the NY1 anchor recently got invited back for the gig two more times.

Apparently though, that's not enough for the new Williamsburg resident, as a new threat in the form of a former 98 Degrees band member Nick Lachey has emerged.

Lachey, who also co-hosted "Live" in March, serenaded Ripa with some cheesy material to give her something to mull over while she set out on her journey to find that perfect co-host.

Not to be upstaged, Kiernan has produced his own musical campaign with a rendition of Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" sprinkled with some choreographed ice skating in hopes to convince Ripa that he's her main man.
