Emmitt Smith -- The Next Regis?

"Dancing with the Stars" champ Emmitt Smith is a hot commodity in entertainment these days.

Well-placed industry sources tell TMZ that Smith has had discussions with at least one major studio about hosting his own talk show.

Smith's "likability" may have catapulted him to the top of the heap on "Dancing." Some TV execs apparently think it will translate into daytime ratings.
