Today, broadcasting legend Regis Philbin announced that he will retire from Live! With Regis and Kelly sometime later this year. Very sad for both fans of the show and those responsible for compiling clips for The Soup alike, but on to the new! Who will complain about diarrhea and mispronounce celebrities' names next to Kelly Ripa on Live! after Reege goes? Barring those who already have or are getting morning shows (which, sadly, excludes the best choice, Anderson Cooper), or people obligated to be out of NYC for significant portions of the year (which, even sadly-er, means no William Shatner or NPH), here are our bids:

The weirdest thing about The Marriage Ref is that I knew a lot of people who were unironically excited for it. People who are very invested in television, who usually have great taste in not only TV but comedy as well, looked at those promos and were like "that looks funny." So weird. That must be the Jerry Seinfeld nostalgia that NBC is counting on at work there, because if you take the fact that Seinfeld was a good show out of the equation The Marriage Ref is pretty undeniably terrible.
