Regis is out, but here are some candidates to replace him on 'Live! With Regis and Kelly'
You can call it the end of an era or just a final bow that's way overdue (or both, really), but now that Regis Philbin has announced his official exit date from "Live! With Regis and Kelly" as Friday Nov. 18, the race is on for TV types to fill that soon-to-be-empty chair. After all, vacancies don't come up too often on this show. The 80-year-old Philbin has held onto his spot for 28 years, while Ripa grabbed her gig 11 years ago.
