Is Regis Philbin FINALLY being replaced? It sure looks that way! Sources are saying that as of late, Saturday Night Live star Seth Meyers is the frontrunner for the position to replace Regis. He is going to be starting a one-week guest hosting gig alongside Ripa, which will most likely determine whether or not he gets the job in the fall! It has been said that if Meyers gets hired, he will probably have to step down from his head writer job at SNL, due to the fact that he will be very busy during the week, but will continue to star in the sketch show’s Weekend Update segment.
Let’s hope Meyer’s fans think he does a good job next week, because he sure has competition! Both Neil Patrick Harris and Anderson Cooper are also in the running, but they are both very busy with their own shows, and other commitments. Besides these three, who do you think would work well alongside Kelly Ripa?
