30 Years of David Letterman
David Letterman marks 30 years as a late night television host on Wednesday evening, with frequent guest Howard Stern.  As the New York Times reports in Bill Carter‘s blog, the anniversary won’t have much fanfare because it appears Letterman and CBS are close to an agreement to extend the run by another two years.  Carter reports no specific new developments about Letterman’s contract, nor of any specifics of Craig Ferguson’s future at the network, however network officials have publicly expressed a desire to keep both hosts.

Haunted Hotels
Fresh from his recent tour and a sleepless night in Omaha, Craig asked Don Cheadle if he had ever stayed in a haunted hotel.  The Huffington Post reported on Cheadle’s answer.

Free Pub for a Publisher

New York City independent publisher Melville House enjoyed seeing Craig hold up one of its books in the Shakespeare & Co. bookstore in Paris on the Late Late Show.

Caveman Jam
With Ringo Starr as Tuesday’s guest on the Late Late Show, the RSA’s @HoboRobot thought it would be fun to remember Ringo’s movie Caveman. Here’s the scene when cavemen discover music:

Tonight’s Guests
Tuesday on the Late Late Show, Craig chats with the one and only Ringo Starr who will also perform on the show.  Then, will Craig take on the role of the horse once more?  Actor William Shatner rides again on Wednesday.

Program note: Local news coverage of the Republican primary in Florida could run very late on Tuesday night, which may delay broadcast of the Late Late Show “in your region.”

  • I was in the studio for the show w/Ringo…I have been a Beatle fan since day one & this is the closest I have ever been to a Beatle..It was so cool….and now I see Paul McCartney is getting his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Feb 9th so I am doing all I can to be there….& Craig was off the hook wild in the Tweets/Email segment…It was crazy !!!  And after the show I got to me Michael (The man in the shadows LOL)  He is very nice & could not believe I have been coming to the studio for shows since 2008…He has been there since Kilborne was there & then stayed on when Craig arrived…I had such a great day…

    I haven’t thought of that movie in YEARS! Thanks for a great laugh, RSA!

  • Hope you enjoyed the Caveman clip. Some trivia: the old blind guy keeping time with his hand in the fire is Jack Gifford from the old Cracker Jack commercials; Shelly Long (Cheers) plays Ringo’s g’friend; and of course Dennis Quaid (who is often on the Ellen Show carrying out pranks) The gay cavemen couple are character actors who’ve been in many 1970s movies. Ringo met his wife making this movie (she is not in this clip). Rent it some time, it’s very funny.  You’re welcome stoners. 🙂
