Craig Ferguson will bid farewell to late-night TV next month when he steps down as host of The Late Late Show on Friday, Dec. 19. The good news is that he'll be able to get plenty of advice about what to do next from his final guest.

Longtime Tonight Show host Jay Leno will be Ferguson's final guest, CBS announced Thursday. He'll also be only guest to appear on Ferguson's final show.

Prior to that, Ferguson's farewell week will kick off on Monday, Dec. 15 with two guests, Jon Hamm and Ferguson's longtime pal Tim Meadows, who holds the record for most appearances on The Late Late Show at 41 (!).

Larry King, who can also dole out some career advice, and Angela Kinsey, will appear on Tuesday, Dec. 16, followed by two more of Ferguson's favorite visitors, Betty White and Thomas Lennon, on Wednesday, Dec. 17. The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons is the only talent booked for Thursday, Dec. 18.

Ferguson will be replaced by a different white guy from across the pond, Into the Woods' James Corden, in March of 2015.

The Late Late Show airs weeknights at 12:35/11:35c on CBS. What do you think of Ferguson's final lineup?
