LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – It’s Guest Host Week on “Piers Morgan Tonight” next week, and Regis Philbin kicks off the festivities on Tuesday with an hour-long sit-down with David Letterman.
“Piers” executive producer Jonathan Wald tweeted the news of Philbin’s first “Piers Morgan Tonight” guest-hosting gig.
“You guys: Regis Philbin returns to TV for one night, filling in for @piersmorgan Tuesday. His guest, David Letterman. Must see next week.”
Philbin, who left his co-hosting spot on ABC with Kelly Ripa last November, has yet to make a regular return to TV, though he has guest-hosted “The View” and made guest appearances on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “Celebrity Apprentice,” “The Talk,” “Today” and, of course, “The Late Show with David Letterman.”
Letterman was a guest during Philbin’s last week of “Live With Regis and Kelly” last year, when he congratulated the 80-year-old Philbin with a kiss on the lips.
