Regis Philbin Signs Off Live! After 28 Years

| Filed under: TV NewsKelly RipaSad Sad

All good things…

This morning, the legendary talk show host Regis Philbin was given a touching send-off from the show that made him a household name. Starting off with a standing ovation, his last show was a real homage to all the great things Reg has done over the last 28 years,.

The show was filled with surprises, from the Mayor of New York handing Reg the key to the city, to the audience filled with friends and former co-hosts like Kathie Lee Gifford, Donald Trump and Tony Danza, and to a beautiful tribute from the cast of RENT, who performed a personalized version of "Seasons Of Love." They replaced the line "five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes" with the amount of Philbin's on-air minutes, "nine hundred ninety-five thousand six hundred minutes."

But the honor ended with Regis, bidding a fond farewell to his viewers who have stuck by him all this time. His speech was brief, but touching and he thanked all the people who have made his looooooong career one of the most inspiring in Hollywood.

Check out the video (above) to see Regis farewell!

We'll miss you, Reg! Take care!

    So is he the next one to die? Andy Rooney quit 60 minutes and he died soon after, and Steve Jobs resigned from Apple and then died.

    COMMENTS ON: Whats with all these gay pedifile's raping young boys. First the gays infiltrate the churches, then our elemetary schools and now our college coaching staff's. We need to get these people counciling and stop them from hurting and destroying others lives.

    Re: buck – suuure! lmao! and what about the straight pedophiles raping thousands and thousands of little girls all over the world everyday? the gay pedophiles don't even make a dent on the straight pedophiles reputation.

    Re: Alexima – i don't like them either but it doesn't make these old gay guys raping young boys by disguising themselves as priests, teachers and coaches any less innocent. lets just try to get them the help they need through counciling and cure this discusting mental disorder

    Re: buck – Why are you dividing pedophiles based on if it's a gay or straigh caset? A pedophile is a pedophile. They're both sick and need help. You clearly have something against homosexuality.

    That was beautiful. I'm gonna miss Regis. I mean, I'm only 18 years old, but I remember watching him when I was 4 years old with Kathie Lee and I think he's an incredible man. Live! will never be same without him. Good luck Regis. :)
