My DVR has been programmed to record "Live with Regis and Kelly" at 9:00 am on WABC every weekday morning for over a year (and it has done so) but today's last show with Regis Philbin was not recorded and this show has been removed from next week's recording schedule. All other TV shows that were programmed to record today (some before and some after this show were recorded). I can understand that the DVR would drop "Live with Regis and Kelly" from the schedule next week because the show name will be changed to "Live with Kelly" (even though it is on at the same time and channel) but why did it fail to record today's last show with Regis? Needless to say, I am very disappointed.

We had exactly the same problem. It's been recording for years and the last episode did not. We did go to liveregisandkelly.com and was able to see the gist, but do not know why it didn't recode. And yes, this was very disappointing.

I thought I was the only one and I did something wrong! Cannot understand why it did not record. Now we have missed it and there is no on demand option. How will we be able to view? Since it seems to be a technical error on Verizon's part, they should some how be able to put it on demand or replay it.

Live didn't record for me either. I'm heartbroken. I've been recording this show for over a year and for it to not record today is ludicrous. I plan to call and complain tomorrow morning. Maybe if we all call they'll put it on Demand for us to enjoy.

In reply to jackmcgann who wrote "There was probably a minor difference in the title or description, so it did not see it as a member of the series. Also the times might have been slightly different.":
The title ("Live with Regis and Kelly") and the time (9:00 AM to 10:00 AM) were identical to all previous shows. The description for each episode is always different.

The same thing happened to me and I was outraged. I'm lucky in that my mother recorded it on trusty VHS so I will be able to see the episode at her house.
And I found out that actually, the name WAS different. It was not billed as Live! With Regis and Kelly.... it was biled as Regis' Farewell Celebration (or something to that effect.
And everyone make sure you go in to your DVR for next week and search "Live! With Kelly" because that is what the show will be called and the DVR is not smart enough to make the connection.
I have been watching the show on and off for my whole life (literally... my mother started watching it when I was born in '83 so it has always been there) and I was seriously heartbroken and furious that one of the most common technologies in the world right now wasn't able to pick up the slight difference in title. Maybe we should all try calling and they will make it available for us.....
