Regis Philbin’s Last Show: November 18


We've known since January that this would be Regis Philbin's last year on Live, but today, he finally announced an end date: His final episode will air November 18. After that, Kelly Ripa will embark on a high-profile anchor search, much like the one that successfully resulted in her decade-long tenure on the show; still, names like Neil Patrick Harris, Jeff Probst, and Ripa's husband Mark Consuelos are tipped as front-runners for the gig. Watch Philbin deliver the news himself on today's show (though not before freaking out Ripa with the suggestion that he might stay another five years).
