Regis Philbin is coming out of retirement since leaving his longtime hosting gig and will now host a Fox Sports 1 talk show. The show is called Crowd Goes Wild and will feature ‘interviews with guests and panel debates with NFL star Trevor Pryce, pro tennis player Michael Kosta, Wall Street Journal sports columnist Jason Gay and Sky Sports’ anchor Georgie Thompson.’
Executive producer Michael Davies says, “We’re not a sports news show; we’re a sports entertainment show. The standard for us: We’re not trying to set the agenda of what America [is] talking about on a daily basis. We’re frankly trying to be funny a lot of the time.”
Sounds like it’s right up Regis’ alley, plus Michael Davies has worked with Regis Philbin on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire in the past. Crowd Goes Wild will premiere on Monday, Aug. 19th.
