Craig Ferguson Signs Off ‘Late Late Show’ with Jay Leno, Homage to Classic TV Finales

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A wistful Craig Ferguson wrapped a 10-year run on CBS’ “The Late Late Show” on Friday with a surprise closing segment that paid tribute to a handful of classic TV series finales.

Spoiler Alert: Stop reading if you haven’t seen Friday’s edition of “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.”

Ferguson signed off after 2,058 episodes in characteristically quirky fashion, running through many of the show’s regular comedy bits, such as bantering with sidekick Geoff the talking robot skeleton and showcasing Secretariat, the show’s “fake horse” brought to life by two people in a classic pantomime horse costume.

The guest segment featured Jay Leno in a candid, and for Ferguson fairly low-key, session of swapping stories of talkshow host gripes about lame guests, pushy publicists and the trials of aging on the job. Leno, who signed off “The Tonight Show” in February, looked like a guy who’s been semi-retired for 10 months, »

Late Late Show: Craig Ferguson Says Goodbye With Incredible Twist Ending

1 hour ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A massive musical number? Check. A casual, low-stakes chat with Jay Leno? Check. A surprise ending that will surely echo through the annals of television history? Oh my God, check.

Craig Ferguson spared no expense Friday during his final hour as the host of CBS’ Late Late Show, kicking things off with a star-studded (albeit pre-recorded) rendition of Dead Man Fall’s “Bang Your Drum.”

That was pretty much it for the evening’s big surprises, other than a phone call from “Bill Cosby,” who says he’s doing “pretty good,” in case you were wondering. The rest of the »

Craig Ferguson Wakes Up in Bed With Drew Carey on Final ‘Late Late Show’ (Video)

1 hour ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Stephen Colbert wasn’t the only late-night TV talk show host to say goodbye on Thursday night.

Craig Ferguson, the longest-tenured host of “The Late Late Show,” bid his staff and studio audience adieu at the Thursday taping, which aired on Friday night (technically Saturday morning, if you’re a stickler). TheWrap was at the taping, but one special moment was held back from both Ferguson’s final crowd and the press — until now, of course.

'Late Late Show' Finale: Craig Ferguson Gets Quirky Sendoff From Jay Leno

8 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Craig Ferguson said goodbye to The Late Late Show with a little help from guest Jay Leno and a few dozen other stars. The opening featured a star-filled video of Ferguson singing "Bang Your Drum" by Dead Man Falls, with a little help from Samuel L. JacksonJeff Daniels, Steve Carell, Quentin Tarantino, Lisa Kudrow, Marion Cotillard, Betty WhiteRegis Philbin and many more.  But what will likely be talked about was what happened when the horse Secretariat took off his mask for the first time, revealing Bob Newhart was underneath. That led to a meta moment in which Ferguson channeled the controversial series

A Goodbye to Craig Ferguson After a Decade as "The Late Late Show" Host

9 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Television late night has been the subject of a lot of talk over the past five years. There was the battle between Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien over who will host "The Tonight Show". There was the surge in popularity of Jimmy Fallon once he took over the position, creating viral video after viral video. There was the time change of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to compete with the primary late night shows. There was the announcement of the retirement of David Letterman, and the announcement of Stephen Colbert taking over the position. One talk show host, however, decided to keep a low profile and develop what has been the most entertaining (and strangest) late night talk show over the past ten years. Craig Ferguson is that man, who has helmed CBS's "The Late Late Show" since January 3, 2005 and will host his final episode tonight (December 19th) at the ripe time of 12:35 A. »

Craig Ferguson: Latenight’s Uniquely Intimate Host Signs Off, For Now

13 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A year of big transitions in latenight TV comes to a close tonight with Craig Ferguson’s sign-off on CBS’ “The Late Late Show.” The shuffle of talent and shows that will continue into next year has brought new comedic flair to the sturdy latenight talkshow format.

But even with more variations on the latenight theme to choose from, it’s hard to imagine anyone delivering a nightly broadcast quite like Ferguson’s “Late Late Show” again. The show was so personal for Ferguson, and so often performed without the safety net of jokes and sketches worked up by a large team of writers or heavily prepped celeb interviews. Tonally, he was the polar opposite of his “Late Late Show” predecessor, Craig Kilborn.

From the start on Jan. 3, 2005, Ferguson never seemed afraid to let a guest chat or prepared segment go off the rails in the pursuit of the unexpected, »

Inside the Final Episode of The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson

15 hours ago | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

A billboard currently stationed outside CBS' Television City studio in Los Angeles gives thanks to Craig Ferguson for "10 years of joyous insanity," adding, "it truly was not like any other late night show."

That's not an exaggeration. The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson was the first talk show to feature a robot sidekick — the sassy skeleton Geoff Peterson — and a galloping mascot like Secretariat (actually two guys in a horse costume). And unlike most other hosts, Ferguson likes to interview guests in a freeform fashion, notably tearing up his notes at the start of each chat.

Craig Ferguson says farewell to late night

17 hours ago | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

This week has proven bittersweet for fans of late night. Last night, Stephen Colbert ended his run on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, as he gears up to replace the retiring David Letterman sometime next year. But not getting nearly has much hype this week is Craig Ferguson ending his stint as host of CBS’ The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, which airs tonight. After nearly 10 years (Ferguson started the show on Jan. 3, 2005), Craig Ferguson announced his retirement from The Late Late Show back in April, a few weeks after Colbert was tapped by CBS to … Continue reading →

Saying Farewell to Stephen Colbert, Craig Ferguson, and David Letterman's Christmas Show

20 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

We must not be treating our late-night talk show hosts very well. To lose both Stephen Colbert (or at least the "Stephen Colbert" he plays on "The Colbert Report") and "The Late Late Show"'s Craig Ferguson is a misfortune, but to lose them both within 24 hours smacks of negligence.

There's a lot of mourning, hand-wringing, rending of garments, and gnashing of teeth to be done, what with Colbert's departure on Thursday, December 18, and Ferguson's the next night. To add insult to injury, Friday the 19th also marks David Letterman's last Christmas show, highlighted by Darlene Love belting out "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)," a tradition that dates back to 1986 on Dave's old NBC series.

It feels like the end of an era, and not just because these long-time hosts are all quitting their shows (though Letterman will still be on for another five months), but also for what »

Best of Late Night TV: Orlando Bloom Wants 'Hobbit' Porno, Amy Adams Struggles at 'Holiday Flip Cup' (Video)

18 December 2014 11:10 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Amy Adams played "Holiday Flip Cup" with Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" on Thursday, and ... she did her best. She's hosting "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, with One Direction as the musical guest, so hopefully Amy is better at hosting than playing drinking games. But her little "ack!" sound when things go wrong is pretty cute.

The amazing Nick Offerman, also a guest on "The Tonight Show," read a "shortened, more casual version" of ''Twas the Night Before Christmas." Love his Christmas sweater. Honestly.

Jimmy Kimmel - and yes he really wore that red Christmas suit - welcomed Mel Brooks, who didn't want to sit in the chair next to the desk. »

Stephen Colbert Signs Off ‘Colbert Report’ with Star-Packed Sing-Along

18 December 2014 9:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Many wondered if Stephen Colbert, after playing a bloviating conservative for 1,447 episodes of his “Colbert Report,” might finally break character and just speak as Stephen Colbert, human being, in Thursday’s final episode. He did not.

Spoiler Alert: Don’t read this if you don’t want to learn details about Stephen Colbert’s final “Colbert Report” on Comedy Central before you’ve seen it for yourself.

In fact, Colbert took things in the opposite direction. In the show’s middle segment, he defeated death and then declared himself immortal. After a commercial break, he warbled the Ross Parke and Hughie Charles tune “We’ll Meet Again” with a wide-ranging and random assortment of well-wishers -ranging from George Lucas to Katie Couric, to Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy to Arianna Huffington to Cookie Monster – then took off in a sled to Eternity with Santa Claus, Abraham Lincoln and “Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek. »

18 December 2014 7:41 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Craig Ferguson's The Late Late Show successor James Corden was thrown into the hot seat on the talk show Wednesday night, giving many viewers their first real glimpse at the British comedian.

News: Craig Ferguson Welcomes Incoming Host

"Even this is making my chest very tight!" Corden joked while facing a barrage of questions from Ferguson.

For those unfamiliar with Corden, he is a 36-year-old actor/writer/producer/singer, who is co-starring in Disney's Into the Woods, out Christmas Day.

Born in the U.K., Corden became a star on British television in 2000 when he starred in the U.K. series Fat Friends until 2005.

At the 2008 BAFTAs, Corden took home the award for Best Male Comedy Performance for his co-starring role on his own BBC Three sitcom Gavin & Stacey, and he won a Tony for his role as Francis Henshall in One Man, Two Guvnors in 2012.

Craig Ferguson Tells Why He Won't Cry on his Final Episode of Late Late Show

18 December 2014 12:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Craig Ferguson will host his final Late Late Show on Friday, wrapping up a stellar decade-long run. Ahead of the big night, People spoke to the 52-year-old Scot about why he was ready to walk away from the franchise and how he changed the late-night genre. When did you know it was time to leave late night? "I knew when I signed my contract the last time, that was it. It began to feel repetitive. I will have done more than 2,000 shows by the time I'm done. That's a lot of shows. It's time for a change. I don't know what's next, »

David Letterman’s ‘Late Show’ Farewell Starts Friday With A Simple Christmas Song

17 December 2014 11:52 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Darlene Love gets lots of offers around this time of year to belt out her well-worn Yuletide hit “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home),” made famous by its appearance on a 1963 album of holiday songs produced by the legendary Phil Spector. She has given serious consideration to just one for the last 28 years: David Letterman’s.

Next year, she will have to make new plans.

When Love (pictured above) sings her song on CBS’ “The Late Show” this Friday, she will be sounding a different kind of note.  Letterman’s annual “Holiday Show” will mark the start of the durable latenight program’s farewell. Letterman has announced he will step down after CBS broadcasts its May 20 episode, which means that this Friday’s  telecast will stand as “a real iconic moment,” said Bill Scheft, a writer who has been with Letterman since 1991, during a recent appearance on a panel at The Paley Center for Media. »

James Corden Continues To Manage Expectations In Advance Of CBS Late-Night Debut — Video

17 December 2014 8:12 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Into The Woods  star James Corden continues to make the late-night TV rounds, visiting NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers last night to plug the movie, but also to warm up the daypart for his CBS late-night debut on March 23. He’s replacing Craig Ferguson, who’s bowing out this week.

“The fact that you do it and all these great people who I love and I admire so much – you and Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman and Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel – to me to even think I would occupy even some seat in that is almost too much for my tiny brain to take,” Corden told Meyers.

Best of Late Night TV: Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon Return to Summer Camp; Anna Kendrick Gets Sex Toy (Video)

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Justin & Jimmy - together again! Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon shared another sketch as kids at summer camp at Camp Winnipesaukee. This time it's 1997 and they sing "Jumper" from Third Eye Blind. They sang "Only Wanna Be With You" and "Africa" in previous camp videos. Best friends forever!

Justin wasn't even a guest on "The Tonight Show" on Tuesday. Instead, Nicki Minaj and Christoph Waltz were on the show. Nicki compared yearbook photos with Jimmy, and admitted - before she was a rapper - she used to be a bad office manager and she was a rude waitress in New York.

9 Best Quotes About Motherhood by New, A-List Moms

16 December 2014 3:15 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

There was a baby boom in Hollywood this year, and those babies' mothers had a lot to say. ETonline breaks down the greatest new mother quotes of 2014!

1. Eva Mendes on vomit and the struggles of being a baby:

"I've learned that it's way harder to be a baby. Everything is a struggle for her. For instance, I haven't thrown up since the '90s and she's thrown up twice since we started this interview. Motherhood is cake compared to what it's like to be a baby." – The Violet Files 

Mendes welcomed baby Esmerelda with Ryan Gosling on Sept. 12.

2. Olivia Wilde on the selflessness of motherhood:

"The amazing thing about becoming a parent is that you will never again be your own first priority. The gift of motherhood is the selflessness that it introduces you to, and I think that's really freeing... I think it allows you to put yourself in other people's shoes...the empathy »
