NBC and Mark Burnett are adding daytime king Regis Philbin’s star power to Thursday’s three-hour finale of “The Apprentice.”

Mr. Philbin, a longtime pal of Donald “You’re Fired” Trump, will be aboard as a co-host during the live portion that includes an “Apprentice” reunion at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York. “I personally invited him to join me in hosting the ‘Apprentice’ three-hour finale,” Mr. Trump said. “It will be great to incorporate his expertise at hosting live events, and I know we are also going to have fun together.”
