Newt Gingrich wants a ‘Regis and Kathie Lee’ style show with wife Callista

Newt Gingrich wants a ‘Regis and Kathie Lee’ style show with wife Callista The Daily CallerThe Daily Caller – 4 hrs ago

For 17 years, and 12 on a national basis, Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford hosted a morning talk show with a broad spectrum of topics that ultimately became a ratings hit throughout the 1990s and into the year 2000.

And that’s exactly what former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich would like to reproduce with his wife Callista now that he no longer has a TV home with the Fox News Channel after leaving last year to run for president.

In an editorial meeting with The Daily Caller on Friday, Gingrich revealed these plans.

“Callista and I are exploring doing a daily show but doing one that is probably closer to Regis and Kathie Lee than it is to Bill O’Reilly,” Gingrich said. “I don’t know that I want to spend the next five years of my life doing an hour a night on attacking Barack Obama, or attacking the next president if it’s Romney because he wasn’t conservative enough this morning when he had coffee — except he wouldn’t have coffee.”

Gingrich explained they are still in the exploration phase in determining whether or not it would be a type of show that would draw an audience.

“We have very broad interests,” he said. “We have lots of things we like doing. We’re trying to explore whether or not there’s an interesting enough show you can get an audience, because if you can’t get an audience, you can’t do shows.”

I don’t think I could stand watching her hair for longer than a minute or so.

It creeps me out.

Newt, just because you find her fascinating (in bed) doesn’t mean the rest of us want to hear her.

Or you, for that matter.

Sorry Newt.
Time to pack it in. Callista is an permanent anchor. It is what it is.

Two things the American people will not accept for generations... co-presidents ...
and plotical dynasties, a la Bush or Clinton or Kennedy

That whole experience has left a dirty political taste with the American electorate.

You want a comedy team on TV?
Try Saturday Night Live; or the Comedy Channel.

Well Newt... if you convert back to your fdr loving, “The era of Reagan is over” inner progressive, hollyweird is just going to love you to death.

He is most interesting as a lecturer.

I think might make a decent political commentator on radio. Perhaps they could both host a radio show, if she has something to say.

But I honestly can’t see him doing tv. It’s a totally different style of showmanship.

He should stick to radio. Neither one of them has a face for TV.

Gee...back during the primaries, I and just about every other Santorum supporter here were repeatedly told Rick was only in it to raise his profile in order to cash in on it later...

All the things you cared about when you were running for president aren't suddenly fixed the day Romney takes office.

This is a generational battle to set America right. There is still plenty to fight for. You've proved in your exile years that you can have influence working the podiums. Thats where you belong. If Fox will have you, great. If they won't, do a Palin and just fight.

well, somebody had to say it. thanks cap’n.

actually, i find her harder to look at than him.

Newt is a very engaging speaker and is incredibly
knowledgable. He had my vote in the primary.

I voted for Newt in my primary and I find him knowledgeable and interesting.
But a chat show with his helmet haired third wife?
Ah no.

I don’t think I could stand watching her hair for longer than a minute or so.

I always thought that was a helmet made of some kind of miracle fiber fabricated to resemble hair.

It would be worth watching for a few minutes because frankly I am curious if her face or her hair moves......

A great author, I’ve read several of his books. As a talk show host with his wife, forgive me but I have these visions of Jim and Tammy Faye that just won’t go away.
