80 year old television legend Regis Philbin has teased that he could be set to make a return as the host of a primetime talent show. Regis, who has hosted such hits as Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and was the original host of America’s Got Talent, has claimed that the talent show will be very family orientated and is something that is very appealing to him.
Philbin explained, "We're contemplating a show that is sort of a talent show, but it involves the whole family. A family competition, which is something new in our business. It's going to be on prime time when it happens. An entertainment type of show would appeal to me. Almost a variety show. In our business you don’t want to say variety because it's frowned upon now, but something with people who are performing."
Regis Philbin made his final appearance as the host of the daytime talk show Live With Regis and Kelly on November 18, joking that he has had enough of having to get up early in the mornings. Regis is currently on a promotional tour for his book How I Got This Way.
