It's Regis Philbin's Last Day on 'Live!' -- Now He Wants to Host 'SNL'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 18th 2011 7:45AM
Today is Regis Philbin's last day co-hosting 'Live! With Regis and Kelly,' but it seems as though thoughts of retirement are still far from the 80 year-old's mind. Talking to reporters after Thursday's show he said "I feel pretty good," but he did admit that he may not feel quite so good next week when the show carries on without him.

"I wasn't looking forward to this moment," said Philbin. "You never are in your life when you're leaving a success that you worked your tail off to make." However, the hardest working man in television won't be idle for long. He's embarking next week on a US book tour to promote his new memoir, 'How I Got This Way,' and he's already been toying with the idea of making his own reality show.

However, he told 'The New York Times' that what he'd really, really like to do is host 'Saturday Night Live.' Saying it would be "irresistible" if he got the call, Philbin quipped "It's come up in my mind, but not theirs. I think the audience for that show would rather have some young guy playing a vampire somewhere."

Five Great 'SNL' Hosts That Will Never Happen

'SNL' logoA host can make or break an entire episode of 'Saturday Night Live.' In fact, the mere presence of some celebrities like Chevy Chase, Milton Berle and Frank Zappa have turned their slice of Saturday late night into the lowest moments of "Must-Miss TV."

However, things are looking good this season. A preliminary list of hosts includes Oscar nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe, former 'SNL'er and '30 Rock' star Tina Fey and 'Golden Girl' actress and new found Internet champion Betty White.

However, some pop culture icons, nay legends, will never get to prove their celebrity power by hosting this comedy powerhouse simply because they never got an invitation, the show wasn't around in their time or they physically couldn't go to the studio. These hosts would have made for the best shows if the laws of time and space went on a week-long coffee break.

Zach Galifianakis and Jude Law to Host 'SNL'

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 25th 2010 1:02PM
Even though a lot of people put down 'Saturday Night Live' (and yes it's probably not as great as years gone by), hosting the show is still a pretty big deal. The show gets a lot of viewers and watercooler talk (and by watercooler talk I mean comments on the web), it's a good push for the first weekend of a new movie opening, and it gives fans of various celebrities a chance to see them do something different.

The two latest hosts to be named are Zach Galifianakis and Jude Law. Galifianakis will host on March 6 (with musical guest Vampire Weekend), and Law will host on March 13 (with Pearl Jam).

Let's not forget what happened the last time Law hosted the show.
