As Regis Philbin is in the process from retiring from Live with Regis & Kelly the show is seeking replacements. On the short list are Hank Williams Jr., Bruno Tonioli, and Charlie Sheen. Sheen is being seen by producers as a good way to bring in viewers from the “younger, heavy drinking, big time partying” demographic.
I’m not sure what Kelly Ripa thinks of all of this but if Sheen is her future co-host, she is in for something completely different than the former Who Wants to be a Millionaire? host.
