Since this is the designated spot for remarks about Anderson's daytime show, TV Guide has reported that his so called friend,
Andy Cohen, is up for Regis's job.
It is a long shot, BUT, guess who was subbing for Regis just TODAY???
Yes, it was Andy himself sitting right next to Kelly.
Personally I found Andy not quite suitabble for the opening, but then again, I'm not Regis.
And it supposedly is the biggest "get spot," in town....a real cushy job.
Perhaps AC should have pushed a little harder on Disney. He knows how to be persuasive when he wants something and Kelly was eager to have him and the audience was already established.

I would have loved to see AC replace Regis Philbin, but it's worth pointing out that he would not have been afforded the EP position--that, presumably, will stay with Michael Gelman--and he'd have less control overall. This way, AC can do an entire hour on one story, or even take the show on the road if he wants.

I recognize that it's a massive risk, but I understand why he took it. Time will tell, but I'm pulling for him.

Exactly which show would he take on the road that would be interesting enough and then there's the liability aspect??
Spending and hour on the HWOBH is a waste of time for him as well as his viewers.
According to Bravo's estimates it is the lowest rated housewives show with less than 2 million to start.
He would have been much better off taking Regis's position and having a sub whenever there was breaking news.
Now it is his baby, win or LOSE.

Anderson seems like a man not afraid to fail if it is something he wants to do. I for one hope he is happy. I don't know about the ratings but I have enjoyed his show very much. So far 360 has not suffered either.
