I wonder if Regis will end up on Retirement TV with Joy or Mary Hart? I don't think he can go home and sit. There will be a job for him somewhere. Sadly, I think it'll be lowly cable, though. That's OK, he just needs something to keep him busy, and he will get an audience.
The show should be cancelled outright. Who doesn't STILL just call the show, "Regis"? I've never said "Live" in my life.
I tuned in yesterday for the first time in ages. I was there in the beginning, and then tuned out mostly after Kathie Lee got self-righteously obnoxious. Oh, and Gelman starting getting tons of camera time. I tuned back in a bit for Kelly, but could never warm to her. She's funny, but she is a camera hog. And it never felt right - Regis was just too old (or she was too young) for them to be together. It always felt like he was sitting with a naughty granddaughter or something. He was older than Kathie, but they truly felt like friends and contemporaries.
[snip] Good for Mark for getting some decent gigs. I never, ever criticize anyone who does theater. It's hard as hell, and it should be rewarding. I thought it was sweet that Kelly was so proud of him for that.
Ahh well, so long, old friend. I do think it's time to go (like Larry King), but I hope you find a spot somewhere else. It was a good run... something that very few people get.
Oh, and unless they hire NPH (doubt it), I can't think of anything that would make me watch this show again. I bet it ends up being Mario Lopez, and that's nauseating. I hate that douchebag, and Kelly will be embarrassingly feeling him up everyday.
