CBS will once again broadcast Boston’s 4th of July celebration, hosted by Craig Ferguson. For the first time, the show will be in high definition and the final 20 minutes of music and fireworks will be commercial free. The show will be live in the east and central time zones (10pm ET/9pm CT) and delayed in the west.

Back in 2008, the Scotsman newspaper profiled Craig, noting his growing popularity in America.

Also in 2008, Craig made one of his appearances on Late Night with David Letterman, just a short while after becoming an American citizen.
