TV Review: ‘Join or Die With Craig Ferguson’

17 February 2016 7:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Craig Ferguson appears to miss his late-night talk platform, and for the sake of his newest venture, he had better hope some viewers do too. Because other than the few minutes the host spends doing standup to open the half-hour, there’s precious little to recommend “Join or Die With Craig Ferguson,” a History series so loose as to feel not just under-produced, but virtually un-produced. Consisting of Ferguson and a trio of guests batting around the most arbitrary of topics, it might be the cheapest-looking program of its kind since “Square Off.” And that’s saying something.

“Join or Die” (a title derived from a Benjamin Franklin cartoon) is predicated on a simple if half-baked premise: Ferguson comes out and introduces that week’s subject, a la “Biggest Political Blunder” or “Worst Medical Advice,” tells a few jokes, and then brings out a trio of guests to discuss it. »
