    [​IMG]CBS is down one more late-night host – Craig Ferguson just announced to his studio audience that he would not be re-upping his contract to host Late Late Show and will step down in December. “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,†Ferguson said in the announcement, which immediately triggered speculation as to who would replace him.
    Ferguson has been the show’s host since succeeding Craig Kilborn in January 2005; his contract was set to expire this summer, so it had been widely expected some decision on his CBS late-night future would be reached soon-ish. And all America recently was brought up to speed on the clause in that contract that landed him a pot of cash if the network looked elsewhere for its David Letterman replacement. That happened when CBS went with Stephen Colbert after Dave also surprised his studio audience with news he was stepping down in 2015. But Ferguson was quick to tweet his congratulations to Colbert the morning the news broke. That night, Ferguson opened his show with another shout-out to Colbert, after which he teased viewers with cracks about resigning — but only for the length of a commercial.

    Howard is sick of his fans protesting CBS for him to replace Ferguson.

    It's not going to happen, But I wish it would. It would go down faster than the Chevy Chase show.

    i'm pretty sure some of those shows tape a week's worth of episodes in 1 or 2 days. still too much for Howard

    Damn it! I like him! And the robot skeleton and fake horse. At least he was different....and that's saying something, these days.

    Howard may be many things, but he isn't stupid. He would never take a job where he knows he may fail. That's why he's in an ensemble judging panel on AGT. He can blame the others for his ratings failure.

    He's been doing that show since '05? I don't think I've seen more than 2 minutes of it, other than falling asleep with the tv on and momentarily waking up to see a minute of his heavily accented monologue.
