2005: CBS Launches 'Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'
January 3, 2013  | By Christy Slewinski  | 1 comments
 
On this day in 2005, actor/comedian Craig Ferguson — best known as office boss Nigel Wick on The Drew Carey Show — took the helm of the CBS late-night series, The Late Late Show

Produced by David Letterman's Worldwide Pants Incorporated, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson mixes the traditional late-night monologue, guest interviews and musical guests with audience interaction, pre-taped bits, puppetry and theme weeks. The show also has a robot skeleton sidekick, Geoff Peterson, and features frequent appearances by a dancing horse, Secretariat. Ferguson also dies impersonations of well-known individuals, including Prince Charles, Sean Connery, Queen Elizabeth II and Michael Caine.

Ferguson is the show's third host, following Craig Kilborn and David Letterman.

David Letterman never hosted The Late Late Show; he used to host Late Night, now hosted by Jimmy Fallon. The first host of The Late Late Show was Tom Snyder.
