Rob Lowe

There's No Replacing Regis!

Our photog asked Rob Lowe straight up yesterday at LAX -- would he be interested in taking over Regis Philbin's chair next to Kelly Ripa -- and he certainly didn't give us a straight answer. 

As TMZ first reported, ABC loved the chemistry between Rob and Kelly during his two-day guest hosting stint this week and have already approached the "Parks and Recreation" star to gauge his interest in coming aboard full-time.

So far, we're told, he's been noncommittal.

I love Josh Grobin as a co-host - but don't seem him doing it long term.

They need to hurry up and find someone because nobody is tuning in for Kelly by herself.She's nice but you can only take so much.

It seems Rob Lowe is regretful that he walked out on his successful gig on "West Wing." He also turned down the role on "Grey's Anatomy" that went to Patrick Dempsey.
Now, later in life, he's looking for a gig on a network show that will lead to syndication. For all Charlie Sheen's troubles, he made good decisions and showed a real a***en for the business end of acting. Rob Lowe? Not so much.

Neil Patrick Harris was her best co host after grandpa left with all his whining. The show won't last and that's not a surprise
