'Millionaire' host gets 2,222nd star on walk

Who wants to be a millionaire with his name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? That would be Regis Philbin.

The daytime co-host of "Live with Regis and Kelly" and former star of the ABC's evening game show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" received the 2,222nd star on the Hollywood Boulevard sidewalk.

Disney chairman Michael Eisner, talk show host Larry King and comic Don Rickles were among the celebrities who gathered Thursday to praise Philbin for his 40 years of broadcast experience.

"I guess they've loosened up the rules lately to include people like me, but I'm grateful for it and it's a big thrill," the 71-year-old Philbin said.
