Ferguson Out, Handler In?

 

“Well, this was inevitable. Craig Ferguson will leave Late Late Show when his contract with CBS expires at the end of this year. Ferguson, who succeeded Craig Kilborn on Late Late Show in 2005, announced to his studio audience, “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.”

The Scottish comedian was one of many names considered by the news media to inherit Late Show when David Letterman announced his upcoming retirement earlier this month. CBS ended up picking Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert to take over the 11:30 slot at an undetermined date in 2015.”*

Are you sad to see Ferguson go? Who should replace him? What does this mean for the future of late night TV? Executive Producer of ‘Dr. Drew On Call’ on HLN Burt Dubrow joins us on Pop Trigger to break it down.
