Sara Rue was on CBS’s The Late Late Show yesterday and she told Craig Ferguson that she is afraid of teenagers. And the new mom wasn’t kidding, she is really terrified of them. She is in deep sh!t in 13 years when Talulah becomes one. What is she going to do when her daughter brings her friends over to play? What if Talulah wants to have a sleep over? She will be f*cked!
But in all fairness I think every parent is afraid of their teenage kid, as they should be. I know what a terror I was.
So when Craig Ferguson renewed his contract for The Late Late Show, he asked for a new studio because he had so many problems with it. Not only was it too small, but the roof was constantly leaking and the power went out a few times. So CBS agreed to his demand and moved him to a new stage last year. Well since he took over the new studio back in August, he already had to do the show without power back in November. And tonight he had to do it with the audience sitting on the stage because a leak from the air conditioner made their section unsafe to sit in.
So either he has no luck at CBS TV City or he is being haunted by one of the people who used to do their shows there like George Burns, Dinah Shore, Sonny Bono, Merv Griffin, Mike Douglas, Ray Combs or maybe Allen Ludden because Craig does have his wife Betty White on the show all the time?
If I were Craig, I would ask to move out of that building when his contract is up next time because he is either cursed or the studios are too old for his needs.
Robin Wright is a guest on The Late Late Show tonight at 12:37a on CBS and Craig Ferguson asked her if she is in therapy. She told him that she has been going for years, but it has been working. So he asked her if he could play her therapist and thus started to ask her questions like a psychiatrist. He asked if cutting her hair was “indicative of some emotional turmoil?”, which makes sense since she finally split with Sean Penn. Then she responded by saying, “Sexual identity crisis, I don’t know.” Then he had to know, “I see. Have you been experimenting with non-routine sexual behavior for you?” And then it gets really weird.
That’s the thing about Craig, you never know where he is going to take an interview and he definitely took this one to a whole new place.
So remember last year when Zac Efron was walking the orange carpet for The Lorax premiere and a condom fell out of his pocket? Well Craig Ferguson asked him about it on The Late Late Show tonight and we found out why he had the rubber in his pants. Basically he didn’t change his slacks from the night before and that’s why it was in there. So not only was he embarrassed that a prophylactic fell out before the premiere of the kids movie he was starring in, we also found out he didn’t get any the night beforehand.
BTW I also loved the CBS host’s reaction when he found out more details about the incident. One of the rare times that Craig not doing his research made him regret what he just asked.
Rob Lowe is a guest on The Late Late Show tonight at 12:37a and Craig Ferguson realized that he actually had seen the Youngblood star before, like way before. Back in the ’80s the CBS host was working as a doorman at a late night club in Manhattan called Save the Robots, and Lowe came to check out the club. The Brat Pack leader was so intrigued by Ferguson’s old job that he had to know more. So Lowe asked, “Who was the biggest a$$hole to ever come into Save the Robots?” Craig said he couldn’t tell him, but Lowe insisted before he realized that he was the person he so wanted to know about. And boy was Rob literally embarrassed, but I think Craig was just playing with him because I doubt a man with those eyes could ever be an a-hole!
Michelle Monaghan is a guest on The Late Late Show tonight and she told Craig Ferguson that she really did her homework for her upcoming movie Tomorrow You’re Gone.
The actress plays a porn star in the movie and the CBS host just had to know if she did any research for the role. When she told him he did, he sat straight up and I am sure that is not the only part of him that was standing straight up on him.
George Hamilton is a guest on The Late Late Show tonight and he told Craig Ferguson that recently he broke up with his girlfriend. He explained that she wanted it all, and he didn’t want something that comes with that. A joke that works perfectly when you look at his tanned face!
Trace Adkins is a guest on The Late Late Show tonight at 12:37p to talk about Celebrity Apprentice: All-Stars and the CBS late night host asked the country singer if Donald Trump’s hair is real. The Honky Tonk Badonkadonk singer said it is because he studied it. He doesn’t know where it’s from, but it is real hair. Then the Scot theorized that maybe the mogul is creating the comb over with back hair because as he said “there’s no way that head hair looks like that naturally, it has to be imported from another part of the body.” The Ferguson concluded that “maybe it’s rouge pubes.” I think he might be onto something although I could’ve lived without that image.
And I also could’ve lived without the image that came from Adkins’ response, “I straighten my pubes!” ‘Nough said!
BTW I love love love that Trace Adkins kept a straight face during this whole conversation, even the comedian couldn’t do it. If you ever get a chance to read Adkins’ autobiography A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck, you should totally do it because it is unlike any other one you have read.
Yesterday the lights went out in New Orleans during the 2nd half off the Super Bowl and everyone had their theories about what caused the outage. I thought it was the guys in Silicon Valley hacking into the system to give their team more time to figure out how to come from behind and win the game. Some other people thought that since Beyonce was done performing the game was over too. Others thought they forgot to pay their power bill. And then again maybe NBC came up with a great way to promote Revolution during the big event on CBS.
Well all of the idea were wrong because turns out it was Craig Ferguson’s fault. Turns out that the, soon-to-be-former after that boo boo, Late Late Show host charged Lucy Liu’s phone in an outlet he wasn’t supposed to do it in. Guess CBS is kind of regretting their decision to send him to the big game now. Although maybe they made the right choice because people were tuning in to see when the power would go back on and when the game would begin again thus making it the most watched Super Bowl in metered markets to date!
Or as Baltimore Ravens and Super Bowl MVP would put it, it was “f*cking awesome!” To the PTC who is upset because he dropped the F-bomb, what would you say if you won such a close Super Bowl like the Ravens did? You would say the exact same thing as he did! I have used that exact same phrasing for events that were much less f*cking awesome that yesterday’s nail biting game!
But back to Ferguson tune into to LLS tonight at 12:37a to see what other power outages he has caused since yesterday. You know his show has been done in forced darkness more than any other late night show, maybe it something about him???
