Regis Philbin Wants To Get Back On TV!

REgis philbin wants out of retirement

Guess after 16,746 hours in front of the camera, it's hard to live a fulfilled life without one.

Regis Philbin is tired of retirement and wants to get back on television ASAP! An executive says Kelly Ripa's former co-host is itchin' for a new job and told sources:

"TV is in his blood. This is where he feels most alive and happy — being in front of a camera. But the TV landscape has changed so much from the last time Regis was looking for a job. Now they want Kardashians and Housewives.”

Regis may be in luck though. Following his reunion with former co-host Kathie Lee Gifford during the fourth hour of The Today Show last week, we hear NBC wants to offer him a contract!

It would work out perfectly because Kathie's current co-host, Hoda Kotb, may be replacing Ann Curry. Even if he doesn't get hired for the hosting gig, the peacock would at least be innerested in using Philbin as "a special contributor to Today," along with other entertainment specials on the network.

Although we'd LOVE to watch Regis mix and mingle with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we think watching him on Today would be more appropriate. Ha!

    Well then he should have never left LIVE! Its almost a slap in the face to all the people from LIVE, to leave and then not even a year later wanting to be back hosting.. These dumb "celebrities" need to learn their place in the world.. America liked him where he was 20 some odd years, and he was the dumbass to leave a good thing.

    LIVE cut his pay and did a bunch of crap to his contract. So I guess they didn't want him that bad. they put him between a rock and a hard place where he had no choice but to retire. He wouldn't have in the first place

    Re: Jackay00 – LIVE is owned by Disney-ABC Television, which has become cheap in the daytime programming department. All My Children and One Life To Live, 2 iconic daytime soaps, were canceled and replaced with a cooking show, The Chew, and a lifestyle show, The Revolution, both of which are way cheaper to produce than the 2 soaps. The Revolution has already been canceled and the reruns will go off of the air in a few weeks, and The Revolution will be replaced with a 1-hour GMA spinoff.
