Regis Philbin Surprise Retirement

As we all settle into the new week, slowly getting over the worldwide backlash of watching comedian Ricky Gervais, be… well… funny, we have news of a longtime television personality who is calling it quits.

Regis Philbin stunned viewers today with a surprise announcement,

"I don't want to alarm anybody, but this will be my last year on the show. There is a time that everything must come to an end for certain people on camera — especially certain old people!"

Regis has hosted “Live with Regis and Kelly” for ten years, and has spent a lifetime in front of the camera.

Word is that Regis only told Kelly Rippa fifteen minutes before the show taped. He was afraid news would leak if he talked to anybody about it.

But within minutes of his announcement the media was already speculating who would fill his shoes. Some names included Larry King, Jeff Probst, Justin Bieber, Ricky Gervais, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, and others.

Disney/ABC said they plan to continue the show and will announce a replacement shortly.

Let the games begin.
