No doubt you all know that Regis Philbin is set to leave his long-standing co-hosting duties on the nationally syndicated morning chat show Live With Regis and Kelly. And as is the tradition with said show, a stream of guest hosts will fill the void until a permanent replacement can be found. And comedian Jerry Seinfeld will be the first to sit beside Kelly Ripa. He’ll be starting his stint on Nov. 21 and will continue through Nov. 23.
Seinfeld will have the honor of interviewing the likes of Jason Segel, Kim Cattrall, Howie Mandel, chef Jamie Oliver and yes, Miss Piggy. “Jerry is a great friend of ours, and a friend of Kelly’s, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s an entertainment icon,” said Live! executive producer Michael Gelman. “It’s a great way to kick off the new beginning of our show.”
