Dear Larry King…

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

Regis Philbin announced yesterday that after 28 years, he’s stepping down as co-host of Live With Regis And Kelly. Larry King offered to fill in for a few weeks but clearly that would be the worst idea of all time. Can you imagine waking up, turning on your TV and seeing that Gargamel face glaring back at you?  At least his CNN studio was dimly lit and he usually just interviewed old boring politicians so in comparison he was passable. Well it’s a different world in ABC’s 9am time slot: a brightly lit set… sitting next to the impossibly youthful Kelly Ripa… with guests like Miley Cyrus or Snooki or that cat who can play the piano. If you thought Regis looked like a creepy old man, Larry would look like a creepy old corpse.

ps.  This is what that is, in case you didn’t know (Dad)

pps.  While doing the intense research that’s necessary for a ground-breaking post like this, I read that when Kathie Lee Gifford left the show it was “to work on her music career”. Glad to see that worked out for her!
