    R.I.P. Regis Philbin

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/ne...was-88-1126718

    Passed one month shy of his 89th birthday.

    I always enjoyed Regis - seemed like a fun guy. I did't watch tons of his long-running morning talk show, but did enjoy his hosting on 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire'. He was a blast playing himself on an episode of Seinfeld:

    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Watched his talk shows occasionally since the mid 80's. Back then, he had a show on Lifetime, before he got the long running ABC gig. Used to also love his appearances on Letterman. I remember there was one show, I think this was back when Dave was still on NBC, where Dave decided they had too many guests for that night's show. So Dave goes back to the green room, greets everyone, and then basically asks Regis to "step out to the hallway with me", and Regis does this perfect "indignation" routine at being the bumped guest. It was great.

    Wow! I didn't realize he was 88. I really liked him actually, and enjoyed watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire when he was hosting it.

    Entertaining guy. Sad to see him go.
