Outrage! Regis Philbin To Host Fox Sports Program

By Robert Paul Reyes

Regis Philbin confirmed on The View " he will serve as anchor of a new Fox sports program.

Philbin, 81, has been a near constant presence on TV since before digital, cable or color TV. If familiarity breeds contempt everyone in America is dying to kill the old son of a gun.


Regis has hosted several programs including "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" and "Live with Regis and Kathie Lee." Dude you are older than dirt, and richer than God -- retire with dignity.

I realize that Fox has several sports channels and they have a lot of dead air to fill, but do they really want to kill an hour with somebody who`s almost dead himself?

Regis Philbin and sports just don`t go together! The only sport I can imagine Philbin playing is bowling, as long as somebody stands behind him to brace him in case he keels over when he lets go of the bowling ball.
