U2 may have canceled its weeklong residency on The Tonight Show after Bono injured his arm in a bike accident, but Metallica is still riding (the lightning) onto The Late Late Show as this week’s musical guest. To watch host Craig Ferguson give a devil-horned welcome to frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich—and to see Hetfield pay his respects to Secretariat (who’s clearly one of The Four Horsemen)—simply bang your head on the player below.

In a symbolic acknowledgment of cross-network camaraderie, Jay Leno will be the last guest on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
Metallica has roamed as far away as Antarctica, and now it will venture into the deep caverns of late-night TV. The band has signed up as the musical guest on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson for a full week (Nov. 17 to Nov. 21) in the hour when the Sandman beckons (12:37 a.m. to 1:37 a.m.).

Craig Ferguson’s retirement might not last long. The exiting CBS late-night host is close to booking a new talk-show gig—only this time in syndication.
The pending deal is for a daily half-hour series that would air in the 7 p.m. hour on Tribune Broadcasting stations, sources confirm. If finalized, the show is expected to launch next year. It’s an unusual time of the day to launch a talk show, yet perhaps that’s part of the draw—less competition than in the afternoon and late-night hours.
Ferguson is stepping down from CBS’ Late Late Show in December after a decade in the 12:35 a.m. slot. Variety first broke the news and has more behind-the-scenes detail on the pending deal.
Outgoing Late Show host David Letterman took a moment during his Tuesday night show to address Craig Ferguson’s announcement Monday that he would be stepping down as host of CBS’ The Late Late Show in December when his contract expires.
Letterman said:”Did you hear this last night? Craig Ferguson announced that he will be leaving his show, The Late Late Show, which comes on right after this show, at the end of the year, which is too bad. He’s been on that program, the star of the show, since 2005 and he’s going on to do other things, I guess a new show that is in the works for him. But his show was unlike any other late night show, and I’m telling you, to be unique in the world of television — virtually impossible. So congratulations to Craig on a great run and we all wish him well.”
Letterman was likely referring to Ferguson’s new gig as host of the syndicated game show Celebrity Name Game this fall.
