‘Name Game’ On Buzzr
If you didn’t have a chance to see Celebrity Name Game hosted by two-time Emmy winner Craig Ferguson, you’re in luck! Episodes from all three seasons will soon appear on the game show-focused TV channel Buzzr. As reported by Broadcasting & Cable, Broadway World and others, episodes are now being broadcast at 8pm and 11pm ET/PT on Fridays. Buzzr is owned by Freemantle Media, the company the co-produced the show when it aired in syndication on local television stations around the country from 2014-2017. The show is anchoring a new prime-time block of Friday game shows on the channel, including the 2007-2008 version of Sale of The Century and Family Feud episodes from 2002-2006 hosted by Richard Karn.

Where can you find Buzzr? It is a digital television channel, currently available in 62 (out of 212) markets around the country. Check your local listings or Buzzr’s own guide for the channel in your area. It is also available on channel 245 on Dish Network in those markets that carry the over-the-air channel. And for those of you kids on the Googly-web and the FaceTubes, we’re told that Buzzr also streams on Twitch, a subscription-based service primarily aimed at the online gaming community, and on Amazon Video for subscribers.

Interview Archive
Have you missed some of the interviews Craig Ferguson has done on his SiriusXM radio show, or just wanted to go back and hear some favorites again? Subscribers now can, using the SiriusXM app under the tab labeled Craig Ferguson’s Interviews. All of his interviews from the past year are there, indexed for your listening pleasure, which will give you plenty to do during the holiday season.

Corden Thriving Late At Night
Many Americans were uncertain what might happen when James Corden became the new host of The Late Late Show in 2015, taking over for Craig. Relatively unknown in the US, Corden was an established presence in the UK, writing successful television shows, flourishing as host of a popular panel show and a Tony Award-winning actor in London’s West End and on Broadway. Now, he has settled into the role of talk show host, and has been finding new ways to succeed in his own way. The website Fast Company recently profiled him, and even BuzzFeed got on the bandwagon.

Craig Chats With Kevin
We’ve often said that the interview Craig did for actor/comedian/podcast host Kevin Pollak a few years ago was one of the best he’s ever done. Earlier this year, Craig returned for another conversation with Kevin, and it turned out to be another great show. If you haven’t had a chance to see it, set aside an hour and enjoy.

More Radio
If tuning in and listening to Craig Ferguson on his weekday radio show just isn’t enough for his legions of roboskellies and hobos, there is now a new radio show on Saturdays that will recap some of the best moments of the week from The Craig Ferguson Show. The Talking Shed will feature host Steve Varley, producer Dan Spaventa, plus Joseph Bolter and Tomas Zakopal. You can hear it on SiriusXM’s Faction Talk 103 Saturdays at 11am ED / 8am PT and on demand. Upcoming guests on Craig’s SiriusXM radio show over the next couple of weeks include Rory O’Malley, Brian Henson, Michael Rappaport, Roddy Hart, Alli Breen and Joe DeRosa.

Great Minds Think Alike
A comedian who heard Craig’s new stand up special thought she heard him tell a joke that she wrote, about of all things, pubic hair shaped like the mustache of a well-known historical figure. She complained about it on Twitter, but later realized that variations of the joke have been around for years. She then backtracked and apologized, as reported by the website Chortle.co.uk. It’s a funny world out there, and coincidences can happen.

Thinking As A Couple
When launching their YouTube show Couple Thinkers this fall, Craig and his wife Megan took part in a Q & A session in Stockholm.
