Philbin returns to talk show with new hip

Regis Philbin isn't showing any effects from his hip-replacement surgery five weeks ago. Philbin returned to "Live With Regis and Kelly" by doing a couple of quick dance steps while the audience gave him a standing ovation.

He walked on stage pushing a makeshift walker on wheels and wearing a black bathrobe. Then he picked up the walker and threw it away and ripped off the bathrobe to reveal a suit.

Philbin says he's doing fine except for a blood clot in his right calf. He's taking blood thinners for that.
