    I just read that on NY Magazine's site.
    When did being a Broadway success lead to being gainfully employed as a late night talk show host?

    Plus - this is a fucked up way to treat Craig Ferguson.

    Ferguson is maybe the worst interviewer that ever was.
    He makes every interview all about him.

    At first glance I thought it was Andy Richter.

    He appears to be somewhat gay, and a committed power bottom...

    Who have you ever seen on his show more interesting that Craig himself?

    Is CBS under some kind of law that their 12:30 slot has to be filled by someone from the UK? This guy is from England and Ferguson is from Scotland.

    I rarely watch late night talk shows, but I did occasionally find Ferguson's show amusing. He was really the first guy to break from the traditional talk show format.

    I am so damn tired of these British assholes being shipped in to host every show in the U.S. now. How is it a country of 300+ million needs to find every host or actor/actress from the insignificant U.K., what is it? Is America now so impoverished for any kind of entertainment talent? :facepalm:

    Few times I've seen Ferguson's show, he was hilarious. Too bad it's so damn late.

    Also, the man is fucking smooth with the ladies! Watch & learn:

    I've only seen this goof once. He almost ruins a great clip. A Brit celeb quiz show has school kids reenact the Paul McCartney-Heather Mills divorce. Sean Lock does a brilliant act about "Fucking kids trying to act" and this James Corden turd tries to ruin it with his cackling. Other than him, it's 2 1/2 funny minutes:

    That's how I feel about most of the people who do Fallon's show.
    I absolutely despise Jimmy Fallon.
    I either watch Dave or Kimmel -what alternatives to Craig Ferguson do you watch?
    Always kind of liked Seth Meyers but he's right out of that same Lorne Michaels corral that gave us Fallon.

    Hell -I'd rather see Bill Hader replace Fallon.

    But who's looking for an interview?? ..You want an interview from someone, go read the 15,000 different magazine stories they've already done....

    It's hard to believe so many people still watch television. It's absolutely worthless at this point.

    They aren't real interviews. All late night talk shows follow the same formula:

    Step 1: Some quick banter between host and guest
    Step 2: The guest tells a pre-screened story or anecdote
    Step 3: Guest pitches their movie, show, or show
