Craig Ferguson Has a New Talk Show Gig Lined Up

craigfergusonLate Late Show host Craig Ferguson might be leaving late night this December, but that doesn't mean he'll be leaving the talk show circuit too. Variety reports that the CBS host is currently in final negotiations to host a daily syndicated half-hour talk show to air on Tribune stations at 7:00pm, with a premiere date slated for sometime in fall 2015. Late Late Show executive producer Michael Naidus is also expected to serve as showrunner, and according to THR, the new talk show will tape in the same studio Ferguson uses for Late Late Show and "be quite similar to his current series — with occasional guest interviews." This makes Ferguson's second post-Late Late Show hosting gig; he also hosts a game show called Celebrity Name Game.
