Regis Gets "Life"

regis.jpg"This is Your Life" may actually be my nightmare. UPI says that ABC is planning to revive the 1940s game show, and they are giving it to Regis Philbin.

Now I have no problem with Reege, but didn't he and ABC already beat one game show into the ground? "My network needs me! I'm there," Philbin said in a statement. "'This Is Your Life' was always one of my favorite shows."

Of course it was. I'm expecting to see a crossover between "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." Surprise walk-ons from long-lost loves and relatives equals lots of crying. In other words, cash and prizes for ABC.

And if it takes off, no doubt there will be celebrity versions and multiple timeslots.

"This is Your Life" will premiere sometime in ABC's 2006 primetime schedule. No date has been announced. -- Rachel Cericola
