Regis Philbin to Host Daily 'Rush Hour' on Fox Sports 1
Fox Sports 1 announced on Tuesday that Regis Philbin will host a daily show called "Rush Hour" when the all-sports national cable network officially launches on August 17.
Philbin's show will be in New York City, and Philbin, along "with a panel of sports professionals, celebrity guests, and die-hard fans," will discuss the day's sports news.
Fox Sports 1 dubbed the show as "unpredictable."
The show will air from 5:00-6:00 PM ET and will directly challenge ESPN's "Around The Horn" and "Pardon The Interruption."
By mixing in celebrities and everyday fans, the show will try to live up to Fox Sports 1's vow to be the anti-establishment alternative to ESPN.
