Letterman welcomes Philbin back

CBS talkshow host will be first guest Thursday

David Letterman and Regis Philbin will be having a heart-to-heart chat on Thursday.

After Philbin was the first guest to appear on CBS’ “Late Show” after Letterman returned from heart bypass surgery in 2000, Letterman will return the favor when he appears on “Live With Regis and Kelly.”

The Thursday broadcast will be Philbin’s first after he underwent triple-bypass surgery six weeks ago. The 75-year-old co-host has been recuperating at home since.

Kelly Ripa called Letterman’s appearance “very appropriate” when she announced it on the show Monday.
