When you're starting a network to challenge the behemoth known as the Worldwide Leader, clearly there is only one man to call on: Regis Philbin. Fox announced yesterday that the 81-year-old TV veteran will host a daily show starting in August for the new Fox Sports 1. Obviously this seems like an unorthodox hire, but I can't say I'm not intrigued. There are a lot of horrible sports shows on the air right now and sports cable networks with horrendous ratings, so I give Fox kudos for trying something different. Having said all that, I can still enjoy some of the snickering about the Philbin hire, such as this amusing piece on "leaked" segments for Regis' new show.
