TV legend, Regis Philbin will be appearing on your television screens once again tonight in a guest spot on ABC’s ‘Single Parents.’

Ever since Regis’s daughter, J.J. co-created and executive produced the series, “Single Parents,” she has been trying to figure out how she was going to get her father on the show, she told ET exclusively.

In a rare sit-down interview with the father-daughter duo, they dish on the guest role. “She’s tough, but she’s good,” the 88 year old former talk show host said of his daughter JJ.

One of the ‘Single Parents’ stars spoke about seeing his producer with her legend father. “Honestly, it’s a little bit emotional just seeing J.J. with her dad. They love each other so much and their whole relationship is tight in showbiz,” Killam said.
