Regis Philbin Gets Hollywood Star
Thu Apr 10, 6:34 PM ET

LOS ANGELES - Who wants to be a millionaire with his name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? That would be Regis Philbin .

The daytime co-host of "Live with Regis and Kelly" and former star of the ABC's evening game show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" received the 2,222nd star on the Hollywood Boulevard sidewalk.

Disney chairman Michael Eisner, talk show host Larry King and comic Don Rickles (news) were among the celebrities who gathered Thursday to praise Philbin for his 40 years of broadcast experience.

The New York-born TV personality joins the likes of recent honorees such as Steven Spielberg (news), Nicole Kidman (news) and Morgan Freeman (news) on the sidewalk.

"I guess they've loosened up the rules lately to include people like me, but I'm grateful for it and it's a big thrill. But I don't consider myself to be in their league," Philbin said.

"Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," only two years ago the biggest sensation in television, was left off the schedule in 2002. Its frequent scheduling and dramatic drop in ratings was blamed last year for triggering the ABC network's decline.

I remember when Reeg was the Ed McMahon-type announcer for Joey Bishop on that old TV talk show!
