8th Annual Living Legends of Aviation Awards Ceremony - Arrivals

 

Following in David Letterman’s footsteps, Craig Ferguson is stepping down from his CBS show, “The Late Late Show” in December after 10 years. Just two weeks ago David Letterman revealed he was also stepping down from late night in 2015…his successor Steven Colbert was named soon after.

Ferguson surprised his audience with the new during Monday’s show. “I’ve been doing this show for 10 years. That’s enough.” So what did Ferguson say he will do next, “I’m thinking carpentry. I haven’t made up my mind yet.”

Nina Tassler, CBS entertainment chairman released a statement, “During his 10 years as host, Craig has elevated CBS to new creative and competitive heights at 12:30. He infused the broadcast with tremendous energy, unique comedy, insightful interviews and some of the most heartfelt monologues seen on television.”

But don’t worry about Ferguson he already has work lined up with a new game show,  “Celebrity Name Game,” slated for the fall. Its going to be a brand new late night for CBS come 2015!
