UPDATED DVR Alert: Craig appears on Lopez Tonight MONDAY NIGHT November 15 (early Tuesday morning if you prefer) at midnight ET/PT on TBS after Conan. Check local listings for the time “in your region”. Craig had originally been scheduled to appear on Tuesday night the 16th but was moved up. His assistant, Rebecca Tucker confirmed it via Twitter: Tune in tonight to see Craig on Lopez Tonight! TBS at midnight! And the change is echoed on the show’s website. That means Craig will be “live” on two shows at once? Ah, the magic of television.
Meanwhile, more fresh episodes are coming our way this week and lots of segments are beging taped at CBS Television City. The Late Late Show crew may be working a couple of Fridays in the next few weeks as the holidays approach, to stockpile as many fresh segments as possible. We’ll probably see a mixture of new episodes and some encore performances over the next seven weeks as Craig and company take time off to be with family during the holiday season.
The website sodahead.com is doing a poll about which late night talk show host should quit, giving choices of Leno, Letterman, Daly and O’Brien. As the RSA’s @HMSFox noticed, Craig is not on their list of choices, and that a number of the comments about Craig are positive. Feel free to add your two cents to their comments. We also noticed that Craig is not a choice in George Lopez’s poll for which late night host has the best hair.
Did Dancing With The Stars judge and 1 vs. 100 host Carrie Ann Inaba enjoy being on the Late Late Show on Friday?: Thanks #craigyferg 4 REALLY fun interview.Had wonderful time on yr show.Secretariat is my favorite next2 awkward pose 🙂
Several members of our RSA family will be in Nashville this weekend for Craig’s pair of live stand up appearances Saturday night, which will be recorded for a DVD and possible cable television special. If you want to be on the #CraigInNashville seating chart(s), tweet @HMSFox, and if you want to be on the head-count list for Nashville tweetups, tweet @NancyInTampa or @Colleen_Byrne. Also, if you’re in Nashville you may have a chance to meet the RSA’s @tzankoff and his creation, @FergyBot4000. It should be a fun weekend in Music City, USA. If you can’t make it to Nashville, Craig has one more 2010 live appearance scheduled for December 3rd in Indio, California. Note: RSA ticket flogger extraordinaire @bgrhubarb tells us the first Nashville show is sold out and there are only a handful of tickets remaining for the second. Book early to avoid disappointment!
Tonight on the Late Late Show, Craig laughs along with comedian Dennis Miller and actress Bianca Kajlich, who tweeted: ps- catch me tonight on the Late Late show with the equally delicious @craigyferg On Tuesday, it’s a Doctor Who-themed show, featuring actor Matt Smith and special guest, the @Nerdist Chris Hardwick and as Craig himself tweeted, a Dalek! The show opening, monologue and more will be part of the fun. Actor Jeff Goldblum is also scheduled to be on the show. As Geoff Petersen put it: Whomania grips [email protected] Dare I say, woo-Who?
Update: Co-host of the daytime show The Doctors Lisa Masterson has been confirmed for Wednesday night. We’ll let you know when Elizabeth Banks will return.
We’ve also been peeking ahead at the future guest list. There are some very nice names including singer/actress Julie Andrews, actor Michael Sheen, author Salman Rushdie, the always entertaining Kristen Bell, journalist Richard Wolffe, actress Carrie Fisher, actress Jane Fonda and masterful talk show host Dick Cavett… we can’t wait for that show. We’ll keep you posted as the actual appearance dates are nailed down.
