'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson' finale recap: Keep bangin' on

Craig Ferguson doesn’t have a band. That’s been a long-running joke of The Late Late Show—he didn’t have a lot of things that most late-night talk shows have. It’s why, among other things, his sidekick is a talking robot skeleton. But on Friday night, Ferguson began his final show with the biggest band of all: A montage of nearly 50 celebrities, all former guests on his show—from Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu to Quentin Tarantino and Kristen Bell—sang and danced to “Bang Your Drum” by Glasgow group Dead Man Fall.

Watch Craig Ferguson greet Metallica's James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich on 'Late Late Show'


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.

Metallica to rock 'Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson' for one week

Metallica has roamed as far away as Antarctica, and now it will venture into the deep caverns of late-night TV.

Craig Ferguson close to landing new talk show

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.

David Letterman addresses Craig Ferguson exit: 'His show was unlike any other'

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.

Craig Ferguson to leave 'Late Late Show'

More changes in CBS’ late-night lineup: Less than two weeks after it was announced that Stephen Colbert would replace David Letterman on The Late Show, Craig Ferguson will now leave The Late Late Show, the CBS talker he’s hosted for 10 years.

Ferguson told his studio audience Monday that he will step down in December. (Watch his announcement below.) Ferguson’s contract, like Colbert’s with Comedy Central, expires in 2015.

He had this to say in a statement: “CBS and I are not getting divorced, we are ‘consciously uncoupling,’ but we will still spend holidays together and share custody of the fake horse and robot skeleton, both of whom we love very much.” READ FULL STORY
