Regis Francis Xavier Philbin (born August 25, 1931) is an Emmy Award-winning American television personality and occasional actor known for his roles as a talk show host, game show host, and presenter at various events. Appearing on television since the late 1950s, Philbin is often called (somewhat tongue-in-cheek and alternately attributed to James Brown), "the hardest working man in show business"[1][2] and holds the Guinness World Record for the most time spent in front of a television camera.[3] His trademarks include his excited manner, his New York Bronx accent, and irreverent ad-libs. He is most widely known for Live with Regis and Kelly, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Million Dollar Password, and for hosting the first season of America's Got Talent.

Early life and career

Philbin was named after Regis High School, a Manhattan Jesuit private school, and after Jesuit Saint Francis Xavier.[citation needed] Philbin was born in New York City, New York, the son of Florence and Frank Philbin, who was a personnel director.[4] His father and mother were of Irish and Italian-Albanian heritage, respectively. Although he was born in Manhattan, they lived at 1990 Cruger Avenue in the Van Nest section of the Bronx. It had always been believed that Philbin grew up an only child, but on the February 1, 2007 broadcast of Live with Regis and Kelly, Philbin announced that he did have a brother, Frank M. Philbin, who had died from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma several days earlier. He said that his brother, 20 years younger than he, had asked him to not speak of him on television or in the press.[5] Regis High School is an all-scholarship, Jesuit, college preparatory school for young Catholic men. ...

His first talk show was The Regis Philbin Show on KGTV in San Diego, California. For budgetary reasons, he had no writing staff, leading him to begin each show with what has become his hallmark, the "host chat" segment (influenced by Jack Paar), where he engages his audience (and later on, his co-host) in discussions about his life and the day's events.

Philbin gained his first national exposure in 1967 as Joey Bishop's sidekick on The Joey Bishop Show on television (1967–1969). Bishop liked to tease Philbin, but the teasing stopped after Philbin walked off the set during a taped broadcast, and stayed away for several days.[citation needed] When The Joey Bishop Show was canceled, Bishop walked off the show on the air unannounced, leaving Philbin to successfully carry the show on his own. Joey Bishop (February 3, 1918 â€“ October 17, 2007) was perhaps best remembered as being a member of the Rat Pack with Frank Sinatra, Peter Lawford, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr. ...

Talk show career

In 1964, Regis took over hosting the late night Westinghouse Tonight Show from Hollywood when Steve Allen left the show. The audience did not accept Regis as a replacement for the zany antics of Steve Allen, and the appearance only lasted a few weeks due to dismal ratings. Johnny Carson was too strong in the ratings for the same time slot. Johnny Carson was an inspiration for Regis Philbin, according to his own words (PBS, 2008, Pioneers of Television).


From 1975–1983, he co-hosted A.M. Los Angeles, a local morning talk show on KABC-TV, first with Sarah Purcell, then with Cyndy Garvey.

Garvey left Los Angeles and relocated to New York City in 1983. Philbin rejoined Garvey on The Morning Show, another locally-produced morning talk show, this time on WABC-TV. At the time, the 9:00 A.M. time slot for WABC-TV suffered from low Nielsen ratings. After Garvey departed again, and Ann Abernathy briefly shared co-hosting duties, Philbin was paired with Kathie Lee Johnson (later Gifford), in June 1985, and ratings improved significantly.

Game show career

Philbin was also a game show host. He hosted The Neighbors, a short-lived game show on ABC in 1975. The premise of the show had a female contestant guessing which of her woman neighbors said gossipy things about her.[citation needed] Also in 1975, he was a "field reporter" for ABC's Almost Anything Goes, an American adaptation of the British game show, It's a Knockout. Both shows suffered from poor ratings. Quiz show redirects here. ... The American Broadcasting Company (ABC) is an American television network. ... Its a Knockout was a popular British television gameshow. ...


Philbin's more recent game show hosting duties have been much more successful. He was the original host of the U.S. version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, another ABC game show that had its roots in Britain. Millionaire was a big ratings success in its 1999 debut, when it was intended as an occasional special series. ABC aired Millionaire as a regular series with frequent episodes, but its viewership slowly declined. After Millionaire was canceled, it was retooled in 2002 as a syndicated series hosted by Meredith Vieira, which continues today. ABC brought back Millionaire in 2004 with Philbin, retitled Who Wants to Be a Super Millionaire, a related series that was aired on a more limited basis. In the United States, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (also known simply as Millionaire) is a television game show which offers a maximum prize of $1,000,000 (originally lump sum; now annuitized) for correctly answering 15 successive multiple-choice questions of increasing difficulty. ...

In November 2005, ABC announced that Philbin would host the network's revival of This Is Your Life. But in August 2006, he reported that his option on the contract for the show had lapsed and he declined to renew it.[9] This Is Your Life was a television documentary series hosted by its producer, Ralph Edwards. ...


Philbin hosted the first season of America's Got Talent, a Simon Cowell-produced amateur search show on NBC, during the summer of 2006. He flew between New York City and Los Angeles many times during that time period, in order to participate in both Live with Regis and Kelly and AGT. His difficulty with commuting between both cities was an issue, as well as his health problems he suffered a few years ago. Therefore, he was replaced in 2007 by talk show host Jerry Springer.[10] In regards to filling Philbin's spot, Springer noted that "no one fills in for Regis. He's the best there ever was at this so you pay homage to him."[11] Bobby Badfingers was the first person to advance to the second round. ...

The latter book is a response to the success of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and deals with more antics about the show and his life.


As a singer, Philbin can best be described as a crooner in the style of his favorite singers: Dean Martin, Perry Como, and Frank Sinatra. He tested the musical waters with his 1968 pop vocal release, It's Time For Regis! After receiving poor reviews, Philbin was reluctant to record another studio album, but he occasionally sang on Live, usually duetting with another person. After 36 years, he recorded When You're Smiling (2004), a more mature-sounding pop standards album. The Regis Philbin Christmas Album was released September 2005 according to Amazon.com but was made widely available that November in time for the holiday season. This album features several duets, with close friend Donald Trump ("Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"), Steve Tyrell ("Marshmallow World"), and wife Joy ("Baby It's Cold Outside" and "Winter Wonderland").

Paul Harris Interview Transcripts: Regis Philbin (1160 words)
Regis has always had a morning show, but I had a morning show, too, of course, and Regis would be on with me. Every few months he'd pop on and I'd help him promote stuff that he was doing on the Live With Regis and Kathie Lee show.
Philbin: That crazy Letterman, he wanted me to be on his show tonight, and then this morning, or rather earlier this afternoon, they postponed the sketch for another night.
Philbin: I've always thought that that was a special place and I wanted to keep it that way, which is why we really don't talk at all before the show starts.
Regis Philbin - Biography - AOL Music (422 words)
It was on that show that Philbin lived one of his dreams, performing "Pennies from Heaven" as a duet with Crosby.
Philbin went on to host daytime talk shows and game shows that were successful, but it was his 1985 teaming with Kathie Lee Gifford that put his career over the top.
Philbin had been making singing appearances in Atlantic City, Las Vegas, and Connecticut for most of the '90s, occasionally broke into song on his daytime show, and had his debut reissued on CD in 1994, but there were no new releases for his -- now huge -- fan base.
