UPDATE: Still No Ferguson "Doctor Who" Musical Number Posted On the Net -- But at Least There's This...
November 19, 2010  | By David Bianculli
 

Several days after the last-second scrubbing of Craig Ferguson's much-rehearsed, much-anticipated musical opening to his Doctor Who special edition of CBS's The Late Late Show, it still hasn't shown up on the Internet. That's a disappointment, because I'd really like to hear the lyrics Ferguson wrote for the occasion -- as well as see his crazy little troupe run through its number. TV WORTH WATCHING would be HAPPY to post the original number, by the way, if there's any way we could obtain it...

Meanwhile, something HAS posted on the net -- Ferguson's full explanation of WHY the number was cut. I described it in my previous post, but nothing can match the hilarious vitriol of the man himself. Click above and enjoy...

Maybe he could be convinced to at least post the lyrics, even if it's without the song?

I sure would love to see that musical number, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that it shows up on the internet one of these days. Thanks for keeping an eye out for it and posting it if it ever shows up. I still think Craig Ferguson is the best of the late night hosts, and his is the only show I watch--usually after DVRing it--every single day. And I know this is really stupid, but every time Secretariat comes out, it makes me laugh out loud. Simple pleasures for simple minds, I guess.

When he was talking to Jeff Goldblum the other night it actually seemed like Ferguson wanted to quit. He does like to go by his whim and his desire to quit did seem more genuine then usual. Hopefully this Doctor Who thing has not pushed him over the edge.
