Besides having a bit of a love affair with the Series/MythBusters (Grant Imahara built him a robot skeleton sidekick), Craig was the 2010 host of ''Shark Week'' for the DiscoveryChannel. [[OneOfUs He's also a bit of a]] ''Series/DoctorWho'' fan, and a toy TARDIS has been prominently displayed on his show's desk for several years. Fittingly enough he is also a lifelong friend and former bandmate of Creator/PeterCapaldi. He shares great chemistry with Creator/KristenBell, to the point where she made so many appearances on his show that she openly lobbied to become co-host, although this never came to be. He also hosted the Boston Pops' Fourth of July show from 2009 to 2012, and on AprilFoolsDay 2014 he swapped places with his friend and former costar Drew Carey to host ''Series/ThePriceIsRight''. He ended his tenure as ''Late Late Show'' host on December 19th, 2015.
