Regis Philbin has joined NBC’s Today as a contributor during the 10a hour, hosted by his former Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee partner for 15 years, Kathie Lee Gifford. “I wish we had him every day, but he’s busy,” said Gifford, who was joined by her Today co-host Hoda Kotb and Philbin for the announcement on Thursday. Philbin said he’ll appear once a month.


Giuliana Rancic is exiting E! News August 10 after ten years, but will continue as co-host on the net’s Fashion Police and Live From the Red Carpet, as well as exec produce the new show Rich in Faith for Oxygen and “take my wine and clothing lines to the next level,” said Rancic.

New! Media Minute: The 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup final scored huge ratings, but not everyone’s a fan. “The record audience for the Women’s World Cup Final came primarily from the English Language television,” Brad Adgate, SVP, research at Horizon Media, points out to Cynopsis.“Of the 26.7 million that watched the finale, 95 percent came from Fox. Compare this to Men’s World Cup Final last year which averaged 26.5 million viewers, when only 65 percent came from ABC.”The takeaway for advertisers hoping to reach Hispanics? “Women’s soccer is not as popular with Hispanics and in Latin America as Men’s soccer is.”

Showtime’s Twin Peaks reboot, originally slated to premiere in 2016, won’t arrive until 2017, revealed Mark Frost, co-creator with David Lynch. “The challenge for us is to try and come back and raise the bar above what we did the last time,” explained Lynch during an interview at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. “We’re coming back with season three of Twin Peaks after a 25-year absence. We’ve finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime sometime in 2017.”

NBC 4 New York is broadcasting live coverage of the U.S. Women’s World Cup Championship ticker tape parade in Manhattan starting today at 11a. Mayor Bill De Blasio will be on hand with keys to the city.
