CLASSIC SIGN OFF
December 20, 2014  | By Eric Gould  | 1 comment
 
Craig Ferguson’s Late Late Show signed off on Friday (Dec 19) after ten years on the air, closing out a memorable week as Ferguson and robot sidekick Geoff Peterson (Josh Robert Thompson) sent the show off with some great sketches and final guests before James Corden takes over in March. Ferguson started his final show with a production number and a band (ironic, since the show never had one), talked with fellow ex-late night host Jay Leno, and closed with his own homage to classic television finales: in a dream, he learned the identity of the actor inside the “Secretariat” dancing horse get-up, which led him to find out the whole thing was yet another dream, and another inside of a snow globe…with the whole thing coming to an abrupt end. Ferguson’s brand of absurdist, anti-talk-show was always a delight and will be missed. –Eric Gould

I guess Bianculli's next exhibit of TV momentos will have to include another snowglobe.
Either the robot or the horse goes to the Smithsonian,next to Archie Bucker's chair & MisterRogers' sweater,after Craig's next foray into talk shows.He intimated that he owns the rights to the skeleton;don't know about the horse.
Here's hoping the next show fares better than Craig's quiz show. Groucho it ain't.
