If you’ve missed seeing Regis Philbin on your TV screens each morning, you’re going to have a chance to see him behind an anchor's desk in primetime. Philbin will be the guest host of Piers Morgan Tonight on May 29. Reege's old friend David Letterman will be his guest, according to the show’s executive producer Jonathan Wald on Twitter.
The news about Philbin comes on the heels of CNN’s latest string of bad headline news. In April, the cable channel suffered its lowest-rated month in 10 years. The network hit a 20-year low the week of May 14–18. Philbin’s Who Wants to be a Millionaire was credited with reviving ABC. Could the indomitable host spike CNN’s ratings, if only for one night?
