Does anyone else think he's one of the best things to happen to TV in the last 10 years? I don't usually watch TV, barring him, Dirty Jobs, and Mythbusters.

Aside from actually being funny (which already puts him ahead of the curve), I get a sense that his shows are real. And he is a damn cool person too, his autobiography is something else. :shock:

Grant Imihara from Mythbusters agreed to build Craig a robot skeleton sidekick if Craig could get him 100,000 followers on Twitter. In less than a week he did and now Grant is building the robot, named Geoff Peterson:

One day he just decided to do a show without an audience, and without the pandering late-night-tv-show format, so he had Stephen Fry on and just had an intelligent converstation:

And an example of his "real-ness":

I think Ferguson's a riot.

I don't watch much TV though, so I rarely see his show.

He's very funny and quick witted. Russell Brand was on his show and they were a riot.

I saw his comedy skit live in orlando a few weeks ago. He was great. He was a little different than tv (his show is great too), but hilarious nonetheless.

I love the show, he is whacked. Is he doing the voice over for that new movie 'How to train your Dragon'? The training coach sounds like him in the commercials.

YouTube - Craig Ferguson as Bing Hitler

If you read his book you'll know why! haha
He used to be a raving alcohol who was also suicidal. He started doing cocaine because it gave him the boost he needed to be able to drink more. :wow:

There's one really chilling story about how he went outside a club to smoke and there was a pimp there, and Craig started harassing the pimp for no reason and the pimp pulls out a gun and points it right in his face, but Craig keeps mouthing off... And I wont spoil the ending, but it involved a couple of guys from the IRA. :shock:

Yeah he's in that movie.

Craig is the best for sure. I can't stand jimmy fallon's awkward self and other late night shows are usually quite boring. Craig always has a good show - i don't watch it for the guests as you would other shows, I watch it for him.

Let's hope he either stays at his time slot, or takes over letterman's show one day but is not forced to change his format because of it.

I thought he was great on The Drew Carey Show, but the Late Late Show just isn't the same without Craig Kilbourn.

Ferguson is really funny. He'd be a game-changer in the 11:30 PM slot IMO. Leno, Conan, and Dave - their bast days are long gone.

I think he is the funniest guy on TV---

When he had Sammy Hagar in the hot seat and was trying to get Sammy to out DLR as being "Very Happy" it was one of the funnier things I had seen in a while--

I think Craig is fantastic. I too agree that he's very real and honest for a famous personality.

Love him. He's just naturally funny. (I think that is the UK/Scotland's gift to Earth, funny storytellers). I think it's great how he just seems to do what feel right on the show. Like last night, he didn't have a monologue. He just said something to the effect of 'hey, tonight we have Robin Williams and (some philosopher) and it would be a crime for me to waste time with my silly jokes. We'll be right back with Robin Williams.'

:slash: Slash will be on Fergy's show tomorrow night :slash:

I think the world might implode by the sheer awesomeness of both of them together.
