Craig Ferguson, the British comedian, actor, director, and practically everything else you can think of, will be launching a new SiriusXM show on February 27th.
The new show will be known as “The Craig Ferguson Show” and will be a live two-hour format-free show airing weekdays from 6-8 pm EST. According to Variety, the show will include long-form interviews, guests, viewer call-ins, Ferguson’s opinions, stories, and comedy sketches.
Ferguson used to host the Late Late Show on CBS and wants his new free-format show on SiriusXM to be whatever he wants. An example of that, as the Variety story points out, is that the show will bring on guests that interest Ferguson solely and not guests coming on simply to promote their newest venture. To help launch and run the show, Ferguson is bringing two producers from the Late Late Show with him.
The Late Late Show ended its 10-year run back in December of 2014.
“I like the idea of trying to do it a little different and a little strange,” Ferguson told Variety.
The show will be run out of a Los Angeles radio studio inside Ferguson’s house. However, the show will be broadcast on the road as well, including from New York in March.
