Highlights of Joy Behar's last show on 'The View' -- VIDEO

After 16 seasons, Joy Behar bid farewell to The View today. The hour-long goodbye episode, taped Thursday, was billed as “This Was Your Life on The View” and was hosted by comic Mario Cantone (Sex and the City). In addition to showing taped messages from stars and choice clips — including Behar buckling Tom Cruise onto the couch, her declining fashion advice from RuPaul, her walking away from Bill O’Reilly, and her getting a foot massage from Matthew McConaughey – producers lined up a slew of surprise in-studio guests.

First up was Regis Philbin, who told the story of how Behar really got on Barbara Walters’ radar. As Behar killed at Milton Berle’s 89th birthday party in 1997, Walters leaned over to Philbin and asked who she was. Former View cohost Meredith Vieira was next, and she described the “faint smell of peppermint and gin” on Behar’s breath when they kissed on the show. Cue the montage of Behar kissing female guests. Then Vieira kissing Behar. Behar kissing Walters. Walters kissing Vieira. Philbin kissing Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd. And Goldberg and Shepherd kissing Behar.

Style: "BBS_BONES_MASTER_CURVE"The Fox Sports Media Group officially announced at its upfront presentation today that it’s launching a new national sports network called Fox Sports 1.

Regis Philbin to host Fox Sports cable show -- UPDATE

He’s baaack!

Television legend Regis Philbin has been without a regular TV gig since leaving Live! With Regis and Kelly in 2011. But this summer, Reeg will return to the airwaves with a series on Fox Sports 1 — a new channel that will replace the Fox-owned Speed channel on cable.

Philbin’s new show — and Fox Sports 1′s very existence — won’t officially be announced until this afternoon. [Update: It's official!] Still, the advent of both is one of showbusiness’s worst-kept secrets; after some prodding from Barbara Walters, Philbin spilled the beans about his upcoming project on The View yesterday. “Yes, I think I will be doing another show,” the host said vaguely before giving a few specifics: “Fox is starting a sports channel. Everybody is starting a sports channel now, you know? Nothing but 24 hours of sports … Regis is going to have a show on that.” READ FULL STORY

Who will fill Regis Philbin’s seat on ABC’s Live! with Regis & Kelly?

Here are 10 names making the industry rounds as potential pairings for Kelly Ripa. Some of these celebrities been previously reported and others are new. At least a couple, we’re told, are non-starters. ABC, unfortunately, has no comment. Here’s what we think:

Ryan Seacrest: You can’t have a major talk show vacancy without his name coming up. He could clearly handle the job. The trick (as is the case with several names below) is working around his existing deals.

Jeff Probst: The Survivor host is a superb interviewer, he has co-hosted the show in the past, and his contract is up this year.

Mario Lopez: Another former Live! co-host. We’re told he’s potentially a popular contender, but that his deal with Extra may hold things up.

Chris Harrison: The Bachelor host is already in the ABC family. If he can handle crazed bachelorettes, surely he can work with sweet Kelly, right? READ FULL STORY
