Plot Synopsis

Each weeknight at 12:37am ET/PT late night on CBS, Craig Ferguson opens the show with a monologue and then interviews celebrities, acts in comedy segments and sketches, and presents musical performances and rising stand-up comedians throughout the 60-minute program. Ferguson has received critical praise for his more serious commentaries, notably on the passing of his father, the Boston Marathon bombing, obtaining his U.S. citizenship and dealing with his own addictions after Britney Spears' infamous meltdown in 2007.
As previously announced, host Craig Ferguson will step down as host of THE LATE LATE SHOW on Friday, December 19, 2014, and new host James Corden will take the reigns on Monday, March 23, 2015. In the interim, CBS will broadcast special editions of THE LATE LATE SHOW featuring rotating guest hosts and a special late night version of THE TALK from Monday, January 5 through Friday, March 6, 2015 (12:37-1:37am ET/PT). Drew Carey will bookend the block of special editions when he guest hosts the first week (Monday, January 5 - Friday, January 9, 2015) and the final week (Monday, March 2 - Friday, March 6, 2015). Other guest hosts will include Judd Apatow, Will Arnett, Wayne Brady, Jim Gaffigan, Billy Gardell, Sean Hayes, Thomas Lennon, John Mayer and Kunal Nayyar. During the second week (Monday, January 12 - Friday, January 16, 2015 at 12:37-1:37am ET/PT), CBS Daytime's THE TALK will broadcast original after-dark editions from their own set for THE LATE LATE SHOW time period.
Late night Friday (December 19) / early morning Saturday (December 20) at 12:37am ET/PT, CBS premiered the series finale of THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON, with comedian Jay Leno as Craig's final guest. And don't miss Craig's monologue!
