Another late-night host bid adieu Friday night as Craig Ferguson ended his run as the host of The Late Late Show. Much like the show itself, Ferguson's final hour was quirky and low-key.
"If they had done more of that, I probably wouldn't have quit," he said after he received a rousing applause from the in-studio audience and thanked the fans for their ...
The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson
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.

Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien, Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers. What do all these names have in common? They're all currently, or are going to be, late-night talk show hosts.
And they're all white guys.
In a column for Buzzfeed, comedian W. Kamau Bell rails against "the whiteness of late night," and comments upon the opportunities for change that have been passed up, in recent months especially.
A few days after the passing of Joan Rivers, the only women to ever host a late-night show on broadcast TV, CBS announced that Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show successor would be yet another white man (and one most Americans hadn't even heard of), James Corden.
Though Kathy Griffin was disappointed in the decision, the comedian says she was far from surprised, especially since she claims that CBS told her they wouldn't even consider women for the gig.
It's official: James Corden will take over hosting duties for The Late Late Show in 2015.
Late-night hosts and guests honored Joan Rivers Thursday, each paying tribute to the pioneering comedian in their own way.
Well, that didn't take long.
Craig Ferguson, the outgoing host of The Late Late Show, is in final talks with Tribune Media for a new syndicated talk show, Variety reports.
