Seth Meyers says 'no, no, no' to replacing Regis Philbin

Posted on

Seth Meyers has something he wants to clear up. Though the Saturday Night Live star has been spending time in the Live with Kelly! co-host seat, he claims he’s not interested in replacing Regis Philbin full time.

“No, no, no, no, no,” Meyers told the Sun Sentinel in South Florida, denying media speculation he was a top contender for the gig. “I know [Regis’ replacement] is a very important thing down there. But, right now, what I would say to you: I’m really in love with the job I have. I’m very excited to be going back [to SNL] for the election season, which is always fun.”

“No” five times is adamant enough for us. Live! co-host Kelly Ripa has been joined by a rotating roster of famous faces, including Joel McHale, Anderson Cooper, Michael Bublé, and Neil Patrick Harris, among others.
