"Live" host Regis Philbin signed off for good on Friday after roughly 16,500 hours on air. The tribute show featured a fond farewell from co-host Kelly Ripa and special goodbyes from old friends like former co-host Kathie Lee Gifford and Tony Danza. His wife and occasional co-host, Joy, joined him on stage, while his daughters watched from the audience. As a bonus, the Broadway cast of "Rent" gave him a proper sendoff with a rendition of "Seasons of Love," rewritten just for him.
