First Guests to Visit Ferguson’s New Digs Include Kristen Bell, Sutton Foster, Seth Green, Larry King, Lisa Kudrow and Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Los Angeles, August 24 – On Monday, August 27, THE LATE LATE SHOW with CRAIG FERGUSON will air new episodes from the show’s new stage – Stage 56 at CBS Television City. Both the set and audience section will be significantly larger and include a new entrance, new furniture, a stable for THE LATE LATE SHOW’s pantomime horse “Secretariat,” and a few surprises!


THE LATE LATE SHOW with CRAIG FERGUSON will kick off the week on the new stage with actress Kristen Bell, Tony Award winner Sutton Foster, actor Seth Green, legendary television host Larry King, actress Lisa Kudrow and actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, among others.


Ferguson provided a little insight on the new stage during his last monologue from Stage 58, which aired Wednesday, August 8: “One thing that’s exciting, we’re gonna have a bigger audience. It won’t really make a difference; it’ll just be more people not laughing. But the new studio’s gonna be super high-tech. We’ll have these new fancy gadgets they have at all the TV shows now. They’re called ‘lights.’”


THE LATE LATE SHOW with CRAIG FERGUSON regularly airs weeknights (12:37-1:37 AM, ET/PT) following broadcasts of the “Late Show with David Letterman” on CBS. THE LATE LATE SHOW is executive produced by Peter Lassally and is a 2009 Peabody Award recipient.

    @The Mullers: When Craig signed his new contract with CBS, the new studio was announded in the same news release as was a band was going to be part of the deal. However, recent reports, like the one above, may have forgotten to mention the band. HEADS SHOULD ROLL! ;-)

    I’m excited! Ferguson has been tanking for the last 2 months

  • Eroll Muller

    @Ralph Hahn Craig Ferguson will have a house band in the new studio. I don’t know if he’ll have it next week or in 2013, but it will happen because he’s been complaining about it for 8 years and that included last night when he opened it up in the new studio. As for who does he want for a house band director or a house band, you’re going to have to email him on his show tonight.

  • Elie Muller

    @Ralph Hahn CBS has lied to Craig Ferguson because they told him that the new studio came in with the house band, but he hasn’t gotten it yet for the Late Late Show. As a matter of fact, I think that you should email him on the show tonight and tell him that he needs a house band right now. If he doesn’t get one now, then he’ll never get to replace David Letterman at 11:30PM in 3 years! That makes no sense at all!
