Regis Philbin

Michael Strahan's

The Black Me

Michael Strahan is doing a helluva job as the new Regis Philbin ... this according to the old Regis Philbin.

The TV legend was leaving Madeo in West Hollywood last night when we asked what he thought of the 6'5", 275 pound NFL stud who took over his spot next to Kelly Ripa back in September.

"I like him," Regis said ... "I think they're pretty good [together]."

Philbin ain't the only one who feels that way -- ratings for "Live with Kelly and Michael" have been booming ever since MS joined the show.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

He's right, he is the black Reeg, except Regis is a snazzier dresser and has better teeth.

I give the show another year, if. The new guy is not a pro like Regis, and Kelly is unbecoming as "the boss".

actually, i loved the good old days...when it was regeeeee and kathy leeeee...they constantly said something inappropriate and then would back peddle...never knew what would come out of their mouths...
and with kathy lee, you either loved watching her or loved hating her...it was hysterical either way...
the show is just tooooo boring now and so predictable...
as far as the big guy, don't like the dude...there is just something about him that just doesn't come across as genuine...and i hear he is not as nice as he thinks he is...ask how nice he was with his ex and taking care of his twins...

I had the chance to meet Michael Strahan back in January. Great guy with a level head, raised by quality parents. Too bad he's the exception and not the rule. Great man.
