Parting Shot: Goodbye Reege

Thanks for the memories, most of which were caused by your terrible, terrible memory.

TONIGHT: Russell vs. Boston Rob Round 2 (Oh, and the Premiere of ‘Survivor: Redemption Island’)

February 16th is finally here and tonight is closing in fast.  Which means that, after literally weeks of anticipation, Survivor: Redemption Island premieres this evening.  But, more importantly, that means the epic, long-awaited, dream come true, clash of the titans showdown between Russell Hantz and Boston Rob is nearly upon us.

When their return was announced a few weeks back we quickly voiced our initial skepticism.  And in the intervening time our feelings haven’t really changed.  We’re still extremely hesitant about this twist, bringing Rob back for his fourth go ’round and Russell for his third attempt in four seasons, because their personal battle genuinely threatens to be bigger than the game, and we’re nervous about what it means for future seasons.  The initial returns could be astronomical, but we could be trading long-term satisfaction for immediate gratification.

But it’s hard to watch this and not get excited.  We’re excited.

You Can Only Run For So Long: Regis Finally Takes Out Regis

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.

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.

So who will fill Regis’ spot next to Kelly?  Anderson Cooper, are you regretting that daytime talk show deal now?  Because we are.

In Regis News We Missed: Reege Still a Danger to Himself, Others

We wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t bring you all the news about any injuries or medical issues concerning Regis.  We were there when he announced his hip surgery, and when he nearly gave Meryl Streep a coronary.  And we’re here now (albeit, slightly late) for his latest malady, as he recently sliced his hand with a box cutter, requiring upwards of four (!) stitches.  And to make matters worse, he went back to the ER to get his stitches out (why he went to the ER to have stitches removed, and not somewhere more appropriate, like anywhere else in the hospital, we’ll never know) and they said it was too soon.  CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?

Meanwhile, while being careful not to steal Reege’s “disability thunder,” Kelly is nursing a hip injury of her own, no doubt caused by all these years of carrying Regis (NAILED IT!).  So this just goes to prove, once again, that Regis is mid-morning talk’s foremost sadomasochist, and no one around him is safe.  NO ONE (Gelman).

Best News: Regis Resolves to Learn “Twittering” in 2011

Or so he claims during this interview with Paul Rudd from yesterday’s Live!.  This excites us immensely, especially if Larry King’s Tweet output is going to diminish  once he wraps out of Larry King Live (which is tonight, incidentally).  Of course, knowing Regis, his attempts to Tweet will likely involve him punching random buttons on a microwave, trying to complain about how the 2011 Yankees don’t hold a candle to the 1911 squad.

Philbin/McHale: Clash of the Titans

Yesterday Joel McHale visited Live! with Regis and Kelly (who themselves are visiting Las Vegas this week), pitting McHale against the source of much of the material shown on The Soup (or, as Regis calls it, simply Soup).  But, much like his recent appearance on Today‘s interminable fourth hour, McHale demonstrated that he has no reservations about biting the hand that feeds him, as he deftly inserted a Regis-is-as-old-as-the-Wright-Brothers crack within the first minute, and continued to harass the irascible Philbin for the entirety of the segment.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This is something we’ve come to adore about McHale (add it to the list), that he doesn’t make nice with objects of his scorn when he appears on their shows.  Instead, he continues to call them out for their incompetence or insidipity, but still being careful to show appreciation for their existence, as they are the reason he’s able to feed his children (at least until Community came along).  And despite his snark, we can tell that McHale does respect Regis and many of the people he mocks, and I think they in turn admire him for being genuine, sarcastic yet gracious (although, with Regis, it’s hard to tell if he even realizes he’s being derided.  Or that he’s on TV.  ZING!).  So cheers to McHale for being an inveterate smug prick, whether in the comfy confines of The Soup studio or behind enemy lines.

Oh, and Regis revealed his true form.

That explains a lot.
