Regis Philbin says he's landed "the greatest temp job in the world."

He announced today that he's taking Dick Clark's place hosting ABC's "New Year's Rockin' Eve 2005."

Clark is recovering from a stroke. A spokesman says Clark is "getting better every day."

In a statement, Clark says his doctors advised him not to host the New Year's Eve party. He's hosted the event for 32 years.

Ashlee Simpson hosts the West Coast part of the show. Performers
include Big and Rich; Ciara; Earth, Wind and Fire; Good Charlotte and Billy Idol.
