(NEW YORK) -- After 28 seasons of LIVE! With Regis and Kelly, co-host Regis Philbin will depart the long-running talk show on Nov. 18 with an hour-long tribute. His final week begins Nov. 14 and will feature classic memories and favorite guests of Philbin's.
Kicking off the celebration week will be comedians Jimmy Fallon and Don Rickles on Nov. 14, followed by Donald Trump on the 15th, David Letterman Nov. 16 and former co-host Kathie Lee Gifford on the 17th. Scheduled musical guests include Tony Bennett, Bret Michaels, Josh Groban and several others.
Following Philbin's exit, the show will be renamed LIVE! With Kelly, allowing Kelly Ripa to assume solo hosting duties until a permanent co-host is found, reports Deadline Hollywood. Ripa will be joined by guest co-host Jerry Seinfeld from Nov. 21-23.
In other Ripa news, she just signed a five-year deal with Disney-ABC Domestic Television to stay on board until at least 2017.
