The end is near, which means its time to start speculating who will be replacing Regis Philbin come the fall when he finally retires from his long-running morning talk show. A lot of names have been thrown around every since he made the announcement that he was leaving the show for good, but today sources are revealing the possible top three contenders to sit next to Kelly Ripa every morning.
Drumroll please. And the nominees for Regis' seat are:
Kelly's husband and frequent stand-in for Regis, Mark Consuelos.
Bravo's main man executive and talk show host, Andy Cohen.
And … Ryan Seacrest, (for credentials, just turn on your TV, radio, computer, etc. He's everywhere!)
Of course, ABC is confirming NOTHING and insists that it is "ridiculous" to speculate who will be replacing him at this point. However, we can't help but notice how plausible it would be for any of these candidates to take over for Reg. They each have the experience and the personality for the gig and it would be a huge honor for any of them!
What do U think? Do any of these gents seem like the right man for the job?
