The buzz surrounding last night’s Late Late Show was about Holly Hunter and what appeared to be an engagement ring. People Magazine reports on the ring she wore on the show and Craig’s attempts to get her to explain why she was wearing it, which she reluctantly did in her unique way.

Today’s Las Vegas Review-Journal talks briefly about Craig’s appearances tonight and tomorrow at the Venetian Hotel and Casino. We’ve heard that some RSA members are planning to attend one or both of the shows this weekend. We enjoy seeing your pictures and hearing your stories. Please send them our way.

Earlier in the week, Craig’s assistant Rebecca Tucker tweeted about her plans for the weekend: Slightly embarrassed that I’m so excited about taking a gondola ride this weekend in fake Venice (aka the Venetian in Vegas) And Randy Kagan is getting ready as well: Vegas has water conservation toilets and the Mrage Fountain.

Craig’s lone tweet of the past 24 hours compared his lunch to a substance not endorsed by the CBS corporation or its sponsors: Sat down after unusually large lunch to read a book & nodded out as if I’d taken a powerful narcotic. Ah pasta, you’re like tasty heroin. And speaking of Craig’s tweets, our fearless leader has topped 200 thousand Twitter followers. Friday Fact: Craig Ferguson ranks 651st on Twitter with 201,009 followers; greater than the population of Shreveport, Louisiana.

For your Friday pleasure on the Late Late Show, Craig talks with “grand” actor Ben Kingsley and listens to the music of Court Yard Hounds. Columnist/author Dave Barry, who was bumped late last week, has yet to be rescheduled. The band Vampire Weekend was originally listed for last night and Sarah McLachlan for tonight but there is no word on if or when they might be rescheduled.
