Kelly RipaRegis Philbin is out the door, but viewers can expect at least five more years of Kelly Ripa on 'Live!'

According to Deadline, Ripa has signed a new deal to remain with the series for five additional years after her current deal expires in fall 2012. A representative for the show confirmed the news.

Philbin leaves 'Live! With Regis and Kelly' on Fri., Nov. 18. Following his departure, the show will be renamed 'Live! With Kelly' as the producers search for a permanent replacement. When Kathie Lee Gifford left the series in 2000, the show was retitled 'Live! With Regis' while producers auditioned various co-hosts opposite Philbin. Ripa ultimately got the job in 2001.

Regis Farewell Countdown Continues With Look Back at His Hilarious Injury History (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 2nd 2011 2:00PM
The Regis Philbin Farewell Tour unofficially kicked off last week when Regis stripped for Snooki. After two days in a row of awesome 'Live' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) montages, it's officially in full effect. Yesterday's Regis compilation chronicled his decades-long struggle with technology, and today we were treated to a look back at Reeg's extensive and hilarious injury history.

Philbin, 80, may well be a medical marvel studied by scientists for generations to come. The montage showed him dealing with a swollen shin after fouling a baseball off his leg, showing off a pelvic X-ray, demonstrating how he uses nitroglycerin tablets for stress relief, and triumphantly throwing away a walker. It's a testament to the man's longevity that after all these maladies he's still going strong.

Jerry SeinfeldJerry Seinfeld will be the first guest co-host on 'Live! With Kelly' when the show switches to a Regis Philbin-less format.

Philbin leaves 'Live! With Regis and Kelly' on Fri., Nov. 18 and the show will transition to 'Live! With Kelly' as it searches for a permanent co-host. A similar format was followed when Kathie Lee Gifford left the series in 2000.

"Jerry is a great friend of ours, and a friend of Kelly's, and it doesn't hurt that he's an entertainment icon," Michael Gelman, 'Live!' executive producer, said in a statement. "It's a great way to kick off the new beginning of our show."

Kelly Ripa and Nick Lachey Have 'Live' Halloween Costume Extravaganza (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 31st 2011 2:00PM
'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) has a tradition of having multiple-costume Halloween extravaganzas. They continued it today, with 'The Sing-Off' host Nick Lachey filling in for Regis. Heidi Klum was there to represent for Reeg, though, donning an excellent Philbin-esque get-up. Kelly and Nick cycled through a bevy of topical costumes, did skits that included cameos from Betty White and the 'Jersey Shore' cast, and also hosted a flash-mob.

Perhaps none of the costumes were as relevant to the moment than their Kardashian wedding costume, with Lachey on stilts. Other costumes included Kelly as Justin Bieber, Deena from 'Jersey Shore,' and Nancy Grace. The pair also re-created Royal Wedding. In other fun goodness, Lachey was superimposed as Ashton Kutcher on 'Two and a Half Men,' and Betty White herself popped up in the 'Jersey Shore' sketch.

Judge Judy Admits She's Made Mistakes (VIDEO)

Judge Judy Sheinlin has been one of the highest-rated TV judges to ever sit behind the bench. She rules with an iron fist and revels in teaching lessons and shouting down unprepared witnesses. But on 'Live With Regis & Kelly,' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) Judge Judy showed her humble side, and admitted that while some may see her as an infallible matron of TV justice, she's made her fair share of courtroom mistakes.

"I know I have made mistakes over the years," she said. "Sometimes I've tried to take the information and came up with the wrong answer ... but I never came up with the wrong answer for lack of trying," Judge Judy said.

Nick Lachey & Kelly Ripa flash mob for HalloweenRegis and Kelly always do it up big for Halloween. This year, 'Live!' is kicking off their annual Halloween Headliner's Ball spectacular (airs Mon., Oct. 31) with a flash mob production number, and we've got the exclusive first look right here.

Featuring Kelly Ripa (in some fabulously bright purple lycra pants) and guest co-host Nick Lachey (not sure we'll say the same about his fluorescent shutter shades), the choreographed dance to LMFAO's 'Party Rock Anthem' has more than 100 flash mobbers dancing, all for a confused crowd of onlookers in New York's Lincoln Center.

Back in the studio, 'Project Runway' host Heidi Klum, '90210' star AnnaLynne McCord and 23 other celebrity guests will be on hand for the show as Kelly and Nick re-live this year's biggest headlines and most outrageous shows through costume -- almost 40 different looks in total throughout the show -- from 'Toddlers & Tiaras' to Charlie Sheen and everything in between.

And, of course, the audience members will be dressed up for the costume contest as well -- one lucky person will win the grand prize of $10,000 to shop at HomeGoods.

Watch the entire flash mob cold open now to get you in the mood ...

Regis Strips for Snooki (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 27th 2011 12:00PM
Usually, Snooki is the one taking her clothes off in front of the TV cameras, but on 'Live With Regis and Kelly,' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) it was Regis' turn. Snooki was on to promote her new book 'Confessions of a Guidette' and hand out some guid-tastic party favors, which included a zebra-striped tie for Reeg.

Things got real Jersey after that. "Guidos usually don't wear ties, so you should like, take off your shirt, and then it'd be cool," Snooki said. As Regis eagerly obliged, standing up to take off his jacket, Snooki and Kelly Ripa couldn't believe what they were seeing. "You're getting naked?" Snooki asked.

"Let this happen," Kelly Ripa pleaded, as Regis unbuttoned his shirt and the crowd began to chant his name. "You think I'm afraid of you?" Regis asked Snooki, who seemed slightly shocked at the spectacle that was unfolding. Finally, after Kelly had egged him on by calling him a "juicehead gorilla," Regis took his shirt completely off, and put on the zebra tie.

by Chris Harnick, posted Oct 21st 2011 3:35PM
Regis PhilbinRegis Philbin is not retiring, he's just moving on from 'Live! With Regis and Kelly.' The legendary talk show host called Detroit's Mojo in the Morning radio show to set those rumors straight.

"I'm not calling it quits, you understand," he said. "I'm moving on. I'm not retiring. I'm not quitting. I'm moving on."

Philbin is leaving his 'Live!' post after 28 years with the morning program on Fri., Nov. 18. However, he seems to be painting a picture that it wasn't exactly a mutual split. When asked if contract talks had a hand in his exit, Philbin didn't exactly deny the rumors.

"The contractual issue just never worked out," he said, "but I was going to leave before that anyway."

The Situation Tries to Teach Larry the Cable Guy About 'Jersey Shore' (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 10th 2011 3:00PM
Larry the Cable Guy doesn't seem like he's the biggest fan of 'Jersey Shore.' Guest-hosting for Regis on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), Larry played a true-false game of "Situation or Not a Situation," with the Situation himself, Mike Sorrentino. Judging from the expression on Larry's face, he didn't much care for the Situation in which he found himself.

As Kelly Ripa read clues like, "A castmate hit a copcar while driving on the streets of Italy," and "two girls in the cast call themselves team Meatball and ended up in bed together after a trip to the Italian shore," Larry had to hold up a sign of the Situation if he thought they'd actually happened. He played along, but the self-avowed redneck didn't seem too interested in the latest 'Jersey Shore' hijinks.
