3. "Live With Regis and Kelly": Regis Philbin's Final Episode
The name Regis Philbin is synonymous with daytime television. For twenty-eight years, he brightened up people's mornings, chatting with first his original co-host Kathy Lee Gifford and then Kelly Ripa, the woman who has shared the stage with him for the past decade. On Friday, November 18th the 80 year old said goodbye in a star-studded hour that featured appearances by Katie Couric and Alan Alda as well as a video farewell from Justin Timberlake. New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg gave Philbin a key to the city. Philbin vowed not to cry, but Ripa shed enough tears for the both of them. (Photo by Neilson Barnard/Getty Images)
