TVGuide.com said Seinfeld will star opposite permanent co-host Kelly Ripa on three episodes, starting Nov. 21. Philbin is to leave the show Nov. 18.
"Jerry is a great friend of ours, and a friend of Kelly's, and it doesn't hurt that he's an entertainment icon," TVGuide.com quoted executive producer Michael Gelman as saying Tuesday. "It's a great way to kick off the new beginning of our show."
A permanent replacement for Philbin has not yet been announced.
