Awesome: The Late Late Show
Craig Ferguson isn't all about fun and games, you know.
  • February 20, 2007: This monologue where Craig talks about his discomfort at making jokes about the personal problems of celebrities like Britney Spears, and goes on to share his own history of substance abuse and near-suicide.
  • September 10, 2008: "If you don't vote, you're a moron!"
  • 2009: Winning a Peabody Award for the interview with Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
  • July 21, 2009: Craig figures out why everything sucks.
  • September 15, 2010: Geoff Peterson takes on Don Rickles...and wins. (Also an MOA for Geoff's programmer, who predicted exactly what word Rickles would call the skeleton and set a specific retort for it.)
  • February 28, 2011: Craig proclaims he won't be mocking Charlie Sheen ever again, having felt discomfort at all the late-night jokes.
  • July 14, 2011: Craig devoted his whole show to promoting Winnie-the-Pooh. It could be seen as an ego trip to some but his enthusiasm for the film and how proud he was of it certainly shined through that night.
  • October 31, 2011: The cold-open rendition of "There's A Light", accompanied by zombies, go-go dancers, and Sid.
  • The War Horse starring Secretariat. Our favorite pantomime horse dual wielding machine guns and blasting away with a rocket launcher? Yes please.
  • The opening number from the first day of the Scotland shows. He's actually singing it.
  • July 20, 2012: Following the "Dark Knight Rises" tragedy in Aurora, Colorado earlier that day, Craig and the show decided to pull that night's monologue out of respect for the victims. Instead, of a usual opening, Craig opened that night's show by addressing the tragedy.
