REGIS Philbin is worried he’ll remembered as a showbiz flop.
The TV legend is upset that his cable sports talk show, Crowd Goes Wild, tanked.
“Regis desperately wanted another hit, but the ratings for his new show are in the toilet,” a source said.
“And the stress is taking a terrible toll. The poor guy looks awful. Regis is miserable and cranky on the set and he’s lost the twinkle in his eye.
“Regis was determined to hit the showbiz heights one more time. He also wanted to distinguish himself from what he feels are a pack of wet-behind-the-ears sports broadcasters. But Crowd Goes Wild sucks. As they say in Hollywood, it doesn’t have legs.
“But everyone close to him knows that’s probably not going to happen. The question is, how do you get through to a legend that it’s time to step down?”
