Regis Philbin’s Next Stop: Primetime?

Did you really think TV legend Regis Philbin was done with broadcasting after his run on “Live!” came to an end? The 80-year old, who has spent more time in front of TV cameras than any other broadcaster, is already planning his next program, according to Page Six:

“We’re contemplating a show that is sort of a talent show, but it involves the whole family,” Philbin told Page Six, adding, “a family competition, which is something new in our business. It’s going to be on prime time when it happens.”

Philbin also had a bet with ABC contributor Katie Couric, and he demands payment:

Katie Couric bet Philbin $10 that he would cry on his last show. He didn’t, and now he’s waiting for Couric to pay up. “Well, she never paid me,” Regis joked. “Put that in Page Six. I’m still looking for a $10 bill somewhere.”
