The move gives WABC time to plan a highly-rated sendoff show.

Regis Philbin will retire from his daytime talk show in November.

The delay will give WABC time to plan a goodbye show, which could spell higher ratings, according to Crain's New York Business.

He had originally planned to step down from Live! With Regis and Kelly in August after 28 years.

Philbin announced his retirement last month.
