We’re definitely thankful it’s Friday, but there’s a downside. After ten years of hosting the ‘The Late Late Show,’ Craig Ferguson will officially step down. Luckily he has a ton of A-listers who are helping him sign off. You’ve got to see this list!
Keep your tissues out. Just one night after Stephen Colbert had a star-studded final show of The Colbert Report, we have to say goodbye to Craig Ferguson on CBS’ The Late Late Show. Luckily, he’s secured the stars too — you’ll never believe whose joining him on stage!
Craig Ferguson’s ‘Late Late Show’ Finale
“CBS and I are not getting divorced, we are consciously uncoupling,” Craig, 52, said in April when announcing that he was leaving. Replacing him will be James Corden, who will begin on March 9. Until then, guest hosts will take the desk including Drew Carey, Will Arnett, Wayne Brady, Jim Gaffigan, and Sean Hayes.
Meanwhile, Craig will continue Celebrity Name Game, a weekday syndicated game show.
Craig’s final show, which will air on CBS on Friday at 12:35pm ET, will feature quite a few A-listers. Here’s the list, released by the network:
Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick (plus their dog Lily), Kristen Bell, Pierce Brosnan, Steve Carell, Don Cheadle, Kristen Chenoweth, Marion Cotillard, Tenacious D, Jeff Daniels, Ted Danson, Kat Dennings, Julia Louis-Dreyfus & Tony Hale, Carl Edwards, Cedric the Entertainer, Jon Hamm, Sean Hayes, Samuel L. Jackson, Rashida Jones, Toby Keith, Jimmy Kimmel, Mila Kunis, Lisa Kudrow, Jane Lynch, Justin Long, James Marsden, Matthew McConaughey, Mary McCormack, Joel McHale, Tim Meadows, Metallica, Kunal Nayyar, Geoff Peterson, Regis Philbin, Ray Romano, Bob Saget, William Shatner, Michael Sheen, Quentin Tarantino, Josh Robert Thompson, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Henry Winkler, Shailene Woodley, Weird Al Yankovic, Larry King, Angela Kinsey, Betty White, Thomas Lennon and more.
Yes, that said “and more,” even though we can’t really think of many more!
