Craig Ferguson Steps Down
Cedar Rapids, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) - Another late night host is leaving the desk.
Last night, Craig Ferguson announced that he will be leaving The Late Late Show.
Of course, he recited the monologue addressing his departure with humor - even saying that he might decide to take up carpentry.
He also denied allegations that he was leaving because he was not offered David Letterman's job.
LL Cool J was the first guest Ferguson had on the show after his announcement and he got a few good laughs in with Ferguson at the announcement.
The chairman of CBS Entertainment said in a statement that it was Fergusons choice to leave but that the network respects it and looks forward to the next 8 months of broadcasting.
Ferguson has hosted the show since 2005.
