Craig Ferguson Is Creating a Bizarre Successor to ‘The Late Late Show’ on YouTube

We haven’t heard much from former “Late Late Show” host Craig Ferguson since his final show aired on December 18, but he and Geoff Peterson are back—although fans may not recognize them.

Ferguson currently on tour with Josh Robert Thompson, who has voiced the lovable robot skeleton for the past few years, and they’ve heard the pleas from fans who want the show back. Even if those fans are, as Ferguson and Thompson mused, just “six cat ladies in Des Moines,” the duo bringing the show to YouTube—and it’s as strange as ever.

Without the set, the lights, the sidekick pieces, or the audience, Ferguson and Thompson have to make their own laughs and their own guests. Sure, we always knew that Secretariat was actually two people in a pantomime horse costume, but seeing two people galloping around is still a little disconcerting.

Now that they’re no longer employed by CBS, Ferguson and Thompson have to find other ways to pay the bills. Touring across the country helps, but when it comes to getting that cash or even entertaining themselves, they start to get…creative.

    Erhm, I don’t think Craig needs to be finding ways to pay the bills (he received something like $10million when he was passed over for Dave’s job). I think he just loves what he does.

      so true. but that’s what this kind of media does, making stuff up 😀

      It would be funny if he could make an actual ‘any time you feel like watching a show that is like a late night show – show’ work on You Tube. If Netflix got him a show I would probably get Netflix agin.
