Update: Friday night’s “Next Week’s Guests” tease included actor Hugh Laurie, who we assume will fill the “to be announced” spot on Wednesday, March 2nd.  We’ll update you when his appearance is confirmed.

The RSA’s @EmmaWuPeel wondered on Twitter Friday when we’ll get to see Craig Ferguson in his gold outfit.  She’s guessed Oscar spoof… Friday would have been the night for that.  And as we reported in our most recent post, the Doctor Who convention segment with the @Nerdist Chris Hardwick is scheduled for Monday night.  There’s no word yet on when Craig and Sid selling lemonade will appear but it’s been a busy few weeks for comedy sketches on the show!

Craig re-tweeted an observation by a fan:  “@MaxieDaisy: @CraigyFerg ‘s Scottish 30’s gangster looks like Spongebob Squarepants doing karate.” Hah! Just the effect I was going for.

The voice of Geoff Petersen, Josh Robert Thompson tweeted:  At CBS, recording new dialogue for my boney alter-ego maniac @GeoffTheRobot

The RSA’s @awkWRDpaws and @scsmith42 had their tweets ready on Thursday’s show.  Remember you can send your questions to @CraigyFerg and he just might read yours!

In the early days of our page, we used to throw in a Friday Fact.  It’s been a while but here’s a new one:  If you laid out Craig Ferguson’s 536,226 followers end to end, they would reach almost from CBS Television City in Los Angeles to Salt Lake City, Utah.  Did anyone bring a bottle of water?  A little thirsty, here.

Friday on the Late Late Show, Craig talks with actress Malin Åkerman who was bumped from Tuesday’s show and the host of The Amazing Race Phil Keoghan.  Phil is a native of Christchurch, New Zealand, which suffered a devastating earthquake this week.  LLS Producer Micahel Naidus tweeted:   Tonight, Phil Keoghan talks about the disaster in his hometown of Christchurch…. you can help at http://www.redcross.org.nz
