Jerry Seinfeld is the new Regis … at least for a few days. Regis Philbin departs from his hosting gig on Live! on Nov. 18, and Seinfeld will join co-host Kelly Ripa from Nov. 21 to Nov. 23, the Christian Science Monitor reports. Seinfeld, the first scheduled guest host, will interview Jason Segel, Kim Cattrall, Howie Mandel, Jamie Oliver, and—perhaps the most exciting of all—Miss Piggy. (More Jerry Seinfeld stories.)
