'Regis and Kelly' to Celebrate 'Regis Farewell Celebration Season'

Regis PhilbinHow do you pay tribute to an icon like Regis Philbin? You give him a a three-month goodbye celebration.

Starting Sept. 5, 'Live! With Regis and Kelly' will celebrate Philbin with ongoing new segments for the "Regis Farewell Celebration Season."

Philbin will depart the series after 28 seasons (including the time it was called 'The Morning Show') in November.

Throughout the fall, 'Live' will spotlight Philbin's top moments and reminisce about classic memories. The trivia staple of 'Live' will be rebranded so to be nostalgia-based and the show will announce a new contest to reward long-time viewers.

Plus, some of Philbin's favorite guests will return to sit-down with the host for one last time. Also be on the look out for special messages from today's biggest stars.

On the guest front, so far Matt Damon, Stephen Moyer, Salma Hayek, Celine Dion, Jonah Hill, Seth Meyers, Gavin DeGraw, Taylor Lautner, James Marsden and Tom Selleck are booked for appearances this fall.

While there have been rumors, no official replacement for Philbin has been named.

Tell us: Will you miss Regis?

Regis, I have followed your show for years. Although you have had two great co-hosts, I will miss your enduring humor and charm that has reached out to me through the tube and online. Enjoy a well-deserved retirement and "do it your way".

So many of us will feel a great loss, but wish our best to Regis. He is
such a joy to watch in the morning. We are going to new York for the
first time in September and are really trying to get tickets for
the show on September 15th. Would make our retirement trip over
the top. Will keep sending in post cards and hope for the best.

When Regis comes on at 9am I feel all is right with the world.
He is just as wonderful in person.

I certainly will miss Regis. I don't think I will watch the show after her leaves.
