Well, as much of a danger that Regis Philbin has been to himself and others over the years, it seemed that the only one who would ever get Regis off his hosting stool was the Grim Reaper. However, Death can relax (for now), since Regis announced today that come late summer or fall he will leave the Live! after twenty-five years (twenty of which he was there mentally. Fascinatingly, it wasn’t a consecutive run). We can only assume he’ll spend his retirement yelling about the Yankees and Notre Dame, butchering people’s names, forgetting what he’s doing, making unintentionally lewd remarks, making intentionally lewd remarks and lacerating himself with a box cutter. So, no different really.Vodpod videos no longer available.
But, fret not, after Reege’s announcement it was business as usual:
And apparently ABC ran a little message for Reege right after the show, one that we thought was in rather bad taste.
(that’s an amazing URL, btw)
But, seriously, Regis, mornings will never be the same without you. Safer and more coherent, sure, but certainly not as entertaining.
