Entertainment Weekly’s Ken Tucker, long a fan of the Late Late Show, includes the program in his list of the best shows of 2010, saying for Craig, “…silliness is a form of wit…”  We couldn’t agree more, Ken.

Randy Kagan, Craig’s opening act for the past four years, has started a new website:  RandyKagan.com which includes video clips and a new blog.

Could Jaques “Arthur” Essbag, host of the French late night show Ce Soir Avec Arthur, be profiting from his “homage” to the Late Late Show?  He’s not hurting for money, having just bought a seven million dollar condo in New York City, says the New York Post.

Thanks to the RSA’s @ScottishConan for spotting this:  Craig has added a new date to his 2011 live stand up comedy tour, at the Winstar Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma along the Texas border.  The show will be on Saturday, February 5th.  He is also in Denver for four shows March 16-18.  We’ll continue to update you on new tour dates as they are announced.

Futurama Volume 5, which features Craig as a guest voice, is now available on DVD, reports Fancast.com.

CNN Entertainment mentions Craig’s tribute to Doctor Who as evidence of the show’s popularity.

Geoff Petersen appreciated Craig’s effort at giving him a gift Wednesday night, even if he can’t get them until Christmas:  Thanks, @CraigyFerg for giving me the gift that keeps on giving. Balls. // But a little awkward if he doesn’t give ’em back. “Say, um, Mr F, got a date tonight. Can I borrow my balls?”

Thursday on the show, Craig welcomes comedienne Kathy Griffin and singer/songwriter Ruth Gerson.  Craig tweeted:  Watch @kathygriffin on me tonight. Then on my show.
