Default Regis Philbin Retiring

The real story behind Regis’ retirement | Snark Food

Quote:
Apparently what originally looked like a TV legend retiring has now been revealed as a tornado of anger and bitterness. Regis Philbin, who announced his retirement last week, did not quit because he didn’t want to do television anymore… he quit because the network was about to reduce his paycheck. Regis normally makes a ballpark figure of $18 million a year, but ratings have been falling and Regis takes so much time off that it was felt a pay cut was in order.

Regis responded angrily to the news, and this led to him completely blindsiding everyone with the news that he was quitting, including his co-host, Kelly Ripa. Initially it was reported that Kelly said she was surprised but supportive – turns out she’s actually furious, and feels that the shock announcement was disrespectful to her and to the entire crew.

An 80yr old man who's show is falling in the ratings, who takes alot of time off wants a raise from 18Mil. Fuck you Regis!

Ride off into the sunset and enjoy the 100Mil you have in the bank and enjoy whatever time you have left. How much damn money do you need?

+1

Still, stories like this annoy me. The money these douches make is insane and at his age does he need to make more then 18Mil/yr? Especially if he as they say, takes alot of time off.

Wait, what's the source for this?

There's really no credible evidence on this story is there.

Also, I've met Regis before, hes an extremely nice person, and wish him the best. But the greed is a bit over the top.

What difference does it make how much money someone makes? It's just a piece of the pie. Apply that to athletes too. If you have some sort of ability to generate money for a corporation, you get your cut.

As Dana Carvey as Regis would say, "I'M OUTTA CONTROL!"

True enough, but since the ratings are supposedly down then it should be a smaller cut, no?

I was in the audience a few years back. He came out before the taping and greeted some of the audience. When he came toward me, I called him "Reeg". Big mistake. He waved security over and had me escorted outside and savagely raped.
