NEW YORK, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Regis Philbin's former "Live!" co-host Kathie Lee Gifford and his longtime friend Donald Trump will visit the U.S. chat show before Philbin leaves this month.

"As Regis Philbin prepares to depart his long-running talk show on Nov. 18, 2011, the staff of 'Live! with Regis and Kelly' has put together a spectacular send-off, with favorite guests, musical tributes and an hourlong final show commemorating Philbin's nearly three decades on 'Live!,'" ABC said in a news release Tuesday. "Leading up to the big finale, daily themed pieces will showcase Philbin's top moments, classic memories many viewers will remember, and the most entertaining highlights from the past 28 seasons of "Live!'"

Don Rickles and Jimmy Fallon are set to appear Monday. Trump will drop by Tuesday, David Letterman Wednesday and Gifford Thursday.

Each day of Philbin's last week there will be a special musical tribute featuring singers such as Tony Bennett, Bret Michaels and Josh Groban.

Jerry Seinfeld is to star opposite permanent co-host Kelly Ripa on three episodes starting Nov. 21.

A permanent replacement for Philbin, 80, has not yet been announced.
