What's your reaction to the Regis Philbin announcement?

We may be witnessing the end of an era. Tuesday morning, Regis Philbin announced that this would be his last year as co-host of "Live with Regis and Kelly," the talk show he's helmed for 28 years.

How do you feel about the news?

Regis will be missed for his sense of humor and his general likability. I'm glad he's leaving on his own accord, so he can enjoy his retirement (though I'm sure he won't completely vanish from television). I think of the tragic way Harry Kalas left us nearly two years ago, and I wouldn't want that to happen to anyone else.

Regis is good and everything, but Kelly really makes that show (at least I find her much more entertaining these days)...with all of the illness and surgery that Regis has had over the past year or so, there have been many substitutes and the show goes on just as well, as Kelly carries the show. I would be more upset if Kelly were leaving quite honestly (sorry Rege). I actually think that Seth Meyers from SNL was a good host recently and could be groomed to get even better (he seemed a little nervous - but I think he would get over that in time. Anyway, Regis - I hope you enjoy your retirement!

Hopefully he won't go back to a singing career. Better yet, he should move to South Bend and try to coach the ND football team. Past time for his departure. An ego the size of Texas.
