    I’m looking forward to this! The grooming for Craig’s eventual slide into the 11:35 time slot begins! ;-) (I love Dave, but I think he’s getting ready to retire.)

  • Brad

    I’m curious to see how this goes. It should prove if Ferguson is that mainstream, 11:30 guy like Fallon proved with his Super Bowl special last year.

  • Fed

    Craig is a beast. Best late night host for sure and all of his guests adore him unlike some other late night shos.

  • Pauline

    Craig is the only late night show we watch. He make watching fun. The other hosts should be watching him to see how to interveiw his guests. He makes it looks so easy and effortless.

  • Justin

    Anything with Craig and Neil Patrick Harris is a win to me.

    Where has the link to this story gone from the news pages? The only way I could come back to this was to search through the history in my browser.

  • William Haney

    Great news. I am sure his robot skeleton sidekick and “Secretariat” will be part of the show too. This should be a different twist. I do wonder if things like this, a new studio for him last year,and renewal is a grooming tool for him to take over for Letterman whenever Dave calls it a career. If so, I just hope CBS learns from the errors that NBC did with Jay/Conan.
