After 9 years and 11 months, Craig Ferguson signs off from The Late Late Show for the final time tonight at 12:35a on CBS. He is going out in a style that is fitting for the host who is unlike all the others. Several of his guests took part in a song and drum number to open the show and he ends it in a way that will have you missing him on your TVs after midnight.
So thank you to Craig, Geoff Petersen (who is going to be stored according to his creator Grant Imahara) and Secretariat for all the laughs. You will be missed.
Days after James Corden appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Seth Meyers, the future host of The Late Late Show finally appeared on the CBS show he is taking over on March 23rd. Craig Ferguson grilled him to see if he is ready for his new job, and all he could do was laugh because that is what the exiting host does to people. And that is why we are going to miss him.
You know what I found interesting about seeing these two men together, even though Craig is from Scotland, I understood him better than I did Corden who is from England. I thought it was easier to understand the English over the Scottish, but maybe not always.
Kat Dennings was on The Late Late Show on Friday and she talked about filming with a $500,000 Lamborghini on 2 Broke Girls. So Craig Ferguson said that he pictured her driving a Hybrid and she told him she drives a SUV. She explained that she got the gas guzzler to take her cat to the vet. And that is when the departing CBS late night host took the opportunity to ask if her, “Is your pussy sick all the time?”
And that is why we are going to miss him because he the quickest when it comes to double entendres. Late night will be a lot less risque without him and that is not a good thing…:(
Jeff Daniels told Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show that the day before he was going in for a wardrobe fitting for Dumb and Dumber, his agents told him that they would get him out of the role. The Newsroom star said he really wanted to do the role because he wanted to work with Jim Carrey. So eventually they gave in to him and said OK.
Then the CBS late night host asked him where are those agents now? Harry Dunne admitted that they are no longer with us, and one of them met their fate by “suspect means.”
So the morale of this story is that if your client is Jeff Daniels, let him do whatever movie he wants. Even if you haven’t heard of anything that is dumb or dumber than that film.
Jimmy Kimmel was a guest on The Late Late Show yesterday and the ABC late night host finally got it out of the CBS late night host why he is leaving the show. Basically, Craig Ferguson has had enough and felt it was time to move on. Something Kimmel couldn’t understand at first; but then he remembered when he was doing The Man Show and wasn’t excited to see naked ladies at the Playboy Mansion and realized it was time to move on. On that note, Kimmel also talked about his penis being his prized possession. And on that note, Jimmy tried to buy Craig’s prized possessions, Geoff Petersen and Secretariat, but Ferguson said they are coming with him. Although, if the Robot sidekick had his way, he would switch late night shows. I am going to miss him, maybe Craig can lend him out when Guillermo is on vacation?
Another thing Kimmel interrogated Ferguson about, is why does he rip up the index cards at the start of each interview? Basically, he doesn’t know why.
All in all, it was a great chat between two awesome late night hosts.
