NEW YORK (CBSDFW.COM) – Craig Ferguson has announced that he will step down as host of THE LATE LATE SHOW in December.
Breaking the news to his studio audience during a taping of the show, Fergson said, “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.”
Since its debut in 2005, THE LATE LATE SHOW with CRAIG FERGUSON has won critical acclaim. The Scottish-born actor, writer, director and producer brought a unique approach to late night television, earning the show a Peabody Award in 2009, and an Emmy Award nomination for himself in 2006.
Ferguson has also received critical praise for his more serious commentaries, notably on the passing of his father, the Boston Marathon bombing, obtaining his U.S. citizenship and dealing with his own addictions after Britney Spears’ infamous meltdown in 2007.
Ferguson has several projects in the works, including hosting “Celebrity Name Game,” a syndicated game show beginning fall 2014. He is also developing television projects via his Green Mountain West production company.
