Regis: Been too busy to miss show with Kelly

NORWOOD, Ohio (AP) -- Regis Philbin says he's been too busy to miss the live weekday TV show he left nearly two weeks ago, though he is already thinking about a return to television.

The 80-year-old entertainer said at a suburban Cincinnati book-signing on Wednesday that he hasn't had time to think about the old program with Kelly Ripa because of his book tour. He's on the road promoting his memoir, "How I Got This Way."

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/rNPhm3 ) that Philbin said it was time to move on from the midmorning show. But he says he's now working on a family talent program he would host in prime time. He says competing families would be judged on their fitness, knowledge, character and what they give back to the community.
