Regis Philbin has been tapped by Fox to ring in 2006 as host of New Year's Eve Live, a direct competitor to ABC's long-running and Dick Clark-fronted New Year's Rockin' Eve. "I'm very happy to be asked to welcome in the new year on TV," says Philbin. "It's a one-of-a-kind show" — if you don't count ABC's long-running and Dick Clark-fronted New Year's Rockin' Eve.
