Dana Carvey To Replace Regis Philbin

Interesting!

SNL alum Dana Carvey may get to use his Regis Philbin impersonation full time!

Finding a replacement for Regis has been a trying task. A few names, including Ryan Seacrest, Andy Cohen and Kelly Ripa’s husband, Mark Consuelos, have been slowly bumped of the list of contenders.

However, a source at Live! with Regis and Kelly says producers have had Carvey on their minds since the beginning of their search — and it's starting to grow on them.

On the record producers say “There’s no short list or front-runner.” We get it, they can't or don't want to give anything away. But our source says the backstage buzz has Carvey as a top contender.

We think Carvey would be work GREAT for the show! He was totally radical co host on Wayne's World with Mike Myers, AND he was an incredible solo host on the classic SNL Church Lady sketch!

Sure, he might not be young or edgy as his other contenders — but compared to Regis Dana is practically a Kardashian!

    Dreadful choice. He's annoying , always mugging for the camera, making stupid comments, trying to be cute. . . . On the other hand, that makes him perfect for the morons who watch this show.

    After Regis is gone the show will go down the tubes. Hopefully sooner than later.

    Oh God no…..he is too busy trying to get the attention to give attention. If he just relaxed and didn't talk so loud he might stand a fighting chance. He probably wouldn't take it anyway because he, "wants to spend more time with the family". I hate to snub the guy…because he can be funny, that's obvious enough. But…he's too insecure and uncomfortable in his own skin to make it work.
