Among the guests stopping by to join Ripa and Seinfeld are actor Jason Segel, actress Kim Cattrall, comedian and host Howie Mandel, “Naked Chef” Jamie Oliver and the fabulous Miss Piggy from Disney’s The Muppets.
“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 executive producer Michael Gelman. “It’s a great way to kick off the new beginning of our show.”
Entertainment icon Jerry Seinfeld’s comedy career took off after his first appearance on “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” in 1981. Eight years later, he teamed up with fellow comedian Larry David to create what was to become one of the most successful series in the history of television, “Seinfeld.” The show ran on NBC for nine seasons, winning numerous Emmy, Golden Globe and People’s Choice awards, and was named the greatest television show of all time in 2009 by TV Guide. Since ending his hit series, Seinfeld has starred in, written and produced movies (Comedian, Bee Movie), executive-produced a television show (“The Marriage Ref”), directed and produced a Broadway hit (“Colin Quinn Long Story Short”), and even written a children’s book (Halloween). He remains active as a standup comedy performer, touring the country continuously. Seinfeld resides in New York City with his wife and three children.
“LIVE! with Kelly” is executive-produced by Michael Gelman and is distributed in national syndication by Disney-ABC Domestic Television. Produced by WABC-TV in New York, “LIVE! with Kelly” airs in more than 200 markets across the U.S.
The New York Yankees have invited television icon and “LIVE! with Regis and Kelly” host Regis Philbin to be honored with the ceremonial first pitch on Monday, September 19, 2011, prior to the 1:05 p.m. game vs. the Minnesota Twins at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees are honoring the Emmy-winning New Yorker in recognition of his nearly three decades as host of LIVE, which originated in 1983 as a local New York program. Twenty-nine seasons later, LIVE is one of the most successful shows in daytime television history. The honor comes as Philbin prepares to leave the program, with his last day on air scheduled for November 18, 2011.
A native of the Bronx, Philbin is a lifetime Yankees fan who grew up in the shadow of Yankee Stadium. Fans of LIVE have known well his highs and lows, triumphs and tribulations as he has lived through every game of every season of his beloved Bronx Bombers.
This morning, “LIVE! with Regis and Kelly” co-host Regis Philbin announced that his last day on the program will be Friday, November 18, 2011.
Philbin made the announcement live on the air during today’s “Host Chat” segment. Philbin and co-host Kelly Ripa kicked off the home stretch of their partnership this week, the final months before Philbin leaves the top morning show. LIVE is marking the departure of the Emmy-winning host with the “Regis Farewell Celebration Season,” a heartfelt, not-to-be-missed commemoration of Philbin’s years on LIVE.
Philbin took LIVE from its early days as a local New York City program to its present-day status as one of the most successful talk shows ever in daytime television. The “Regis Farewell Celebration Season” will be a fitting tribute to the iconic co-host who has helmed the program from the very beginning. Throughout the fall, LIVE will showcase Philbin’s top moments, classic memories many viewers will remember and the most entertaining highlights from the past 28 seasons of LIVE.
Favorite guests will return for one last sit down with the one-of-a-kind team of Philbin and Ripa, sharing their personal recollections of years of visits to the show. In addition, dozens of celebrities have chimed in to send special messages and remember the times they’ve shared on LIVE with the indefatigable host.

Regis Philbin announced today that he will be retiring from the very successful, long-running talk show “LIVE! with Regis and Kelly.” Philbin made the announcement live on-air this morning during the Host Chat portion of the show.
As Philbin stated to the viewers this morning, “This will be my last year on this show. It’s been a long time, it’s been 28 years since I’ve been here… There is a time that everything must come to an end…” Referring to his remaining time on the show he added, “We’ll have a lot of fun between now and then.”
Regis Philbin is a legend in the entertainment industry, a hall of fame broadcaster with more than 50 years in front of the camera. “LIVE! with Regis and Kelly” premiered in national syndication in 1988 as “Live with Regis & Kathie Lee.” The show debuted locally in 1983 on WABC New York as “The Morning Show.” A three-time Emmy Award winner, Philbin was also honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences at the Daytime Emmy Awards in 2008.
“It has been my great honor to work with Regis since the Walt Disney Company nationally syndicated ‘LIVE’ in 1988,” said Janice Marinelli, president, Disney-ABC Domestic Television. “Regis is one of the great, iconic television personalities of our time and we couldn’t have asked for a better friend and partner over the years. We will all certainly miss having Regis be a part of our day.”
The “LIVE” franchise will continue, and in the coming months Disney-ABC Television Group will name a new co-host to join the talented and captivating Kelly Ripa – who celebrates ten incredible years co-hosting with the show, next month.
While 2011 will be a year of great change for “LIVE,” it will also be a time of incredible excitement as the show sends Philbin off in style. In the coming months, “LIVE” will welcome top guests and feature special segments, all part of the countdown to the spectacular farewell celebration for the incomparable Regis Philbin.
“WABC is proud to be the home of ‘LIVE! with Regis and Kelly,’ and it will be difficult to say goodbye to Regis after 28 years as a member of our family,” commented Dave Davis, president and general manager, WABC. “We will miss him as a colleague and friend. We’re fortunate, however, to have two real pros who can lead ‘LIVE’ into the future – Kelly Ripa, who has spent the last ten years developing her own amazing voice in daytime talk, and Michael Gelman, who has been with the show since its inception and is one of the best executive producers in daytime television.”
“LIVE” began when Regis Philbin created “The Morning Show” for WABC in his native New York City; it soon became the number one show in the market. Kathie Lee Gifford joined him in June 1985 and in September 1988, the program debuted in national syndication and the title was changed to “Live with Regis & Kathie Lee.” The show matched its local success with extraordinary national ratings and established itself as a dominant fixture in national television, a tradition that continued when Ripa joined the show in 2001.
For nearly 25 years, “LIVE” has been an essential stop for the top names in the entertainment industry. From award-winning actors to the hottest musical acts, the show boasts A-list celebrity guests, top-notch musical performances and one-of-a-kind segments that are unrivaled on daytime television.
Currently in its 23rd season in national syndication, “LIVE! with Regis and Kelly” is executive produced by Michael Gelman, and is distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television. Produced by WABC-TV in New York, “LIVE” airs in more than 200 markets across North America.
