regis philbin new girl fod 'New Girl' gets a new roommate for Season 2   Regis PhilbinWatch out Schmidt: your days in the loft are numbered — that is, if Regis Philbin has any say in the matter. The beloved TV personality has developed an obsession with FOX’s “New Girl” since his retirement from daytime TV, but there’s one person he is not on board with: star Max Greenfield.

Of course, it’s all for a new Funny or Die video written by Philbin’s daughter, J.J., who also happens to be a writer on “New Girl.” No word on whether real-life Reege has a vendetta against Greenfield or not, but FoD Reege wants Schmidt to take a bus ride off a cliff (a la “Veronica Mars” Season 2) to get him off the show as quickly as possible.

That’d leave a vacancy in the loft, and Regis has a great idea as to who should move in. We’ll give you a hint: rhymes with “Freegis Rilbin.” (It’s Regis Philbin.)

How do you think Reege would get along with the roomies?
