Regis Philbin To Guest Host 'Piers Morgan Tonight' On CNN Tuesday May 29

Regis Philbin fans can rejoice. The former host of "Live!" will be back on TV next week, filling in for Piers Morgan on CNN.

Philbin will kick off a week of guest hosts on "Piers Morgan Tonight" next Tuesday. He will be sitting down with David Letterman. Executive producer Jonathan Wald tweeted the news on Tuesday, noting that Letterman rarely gives interviews.

Philbin bid farewell to "Live!" after nearly three decades in November. At the time, he had contemplated developing a primetime project.
