With Regis Philbin set to depart Live! With Regis and Kelly on November 18, the show has booked “some of Philbin’s favorite guests and friends” for his final week. They include Philbin’s former co-host Kathie Lee Gifford (November 17), fellow talk-show hosts David Letterman (November 16) and Jimmy Fallon (November 14) as well as Donald Trump (November 15) and Don Rickles (November 14). In addition, each day there will be a special musical tribute featuring singers such as Tony Bennett, Bret Michaels and Josh Groban. Philbin’s last show is being billed as an hourlong tribute commemorating his nearly three decades on Live!.
