Regis Philbin The stars are lining up to say goodbye to Regis Philbin.

The 80-year-old entertainer is leaving 'Live! With Regis and Kelly' on Fri., Nov. 18, but not before some old friends -- including former 'Live!' co-host Kathie Lee Gifford -- return to pay tribute to the talk show host.

Gifford will appear on Thurs., Nov. 17, Philbin's second-to-last show. Additional guests include: Don Rickles (Nov. 14), Jimmy Fallon (Nov. 14), Donald Trump (Nov. 15) and David Letterman (Nov. 16).

Singers Tony Bennett, Bret Michaels and Josh Groban will also stop by for special musical performances.

On Nov. 18, Philbin's last day, the host will look back on his time with the show and share his final thoughts as he moves to new adventures. Expect tons of surprises for both Philbin and the audience.

Philbin is leaving 'Live!' after 28 years with the show. However, he's not retiring.

"I'm not calling it quits, you understand," he told radio show Mojo in the Morning. "I'm moving on. I'm not retiring. I'm not quitting. I'm moving on."

So far he hasn't announced any plans, but he was spotted filming some sort of realty pilot.

Over the last few weeks, 'Live!' has been bringing out surprise guests and airing special clip shows featuring some of Philbin's signature moments.

No replacement for Philbin has been named, but Jerry Seinfeld will fill his seat temporarily beginning Nov. 21.
