When will Craig Ferguson be fired?

It is not a question of if but when.


Nobody appears on his show.

I say he gets canned before August.



CBS the geezer network is out of touch with the young demographic like they always have been.

From what i've seen of Craig, I think he's pretty good.

Nothing i'd stop watching Conan for, but good nonetheless.

I haven't seen the show, but he can't be any worse than Kilborn was, and he lasted a while.

I'm straight, and I won't watch Craig Fergayson because his show is gay.

He is bad. But at least he doesn't try to be more than he is, [cough]Kilborn[/cough].

I wouldn't count on them getting rid of him soon. I don't like him, but every talk show host sucks for the first year.

I think that's about right. That'll give CBS a chance to put together a real show they can promote with their fall lineup.

Ferguson was set up as a lame duck from the start.

I agree. The time slot's too late for me, so I don't watch much of either of them, though.

I really like Craig's theme song.

Not gay, so I don't watch him. But I mean, that time slot leaves it that all you have to do is be better than an infermercial and world wide pants wants to keep a late late show in production, so it will stay on the air with Craig.

No, seriously - who is he? And why do you have to be gay to watch him? Is it a show where they just have dudes making out with each other? Is it instructional videos on how to have gay sex? I can't imagine what kind of network programming would require a sexual preference check.

Ferguson is considerably better than Conan was at this point in his career. He's also a better interviewer now.

As he was reportedly given a 5 year contract, he is unlikely to be fired in August.

I've never been a big fan of Conan, the first 2-3 years were painful. He is just above that now at tolerable. I can't believe he inherited the Tonight Show.

Conan is great but soo self loathing at times. I often wonder what kind of childhood he had. But Conan is far superior than Leno and Letterman currently are. Giving Leno the Tonight Show over Letterman was one of the biggest mistakes they ever made. At least Conan has some originality.

He's better than Leno, Letterman, and everyone else in late night shows combined.

Not a bad one. His dad is a doctor and his mom is a lawyer, from what I've read. He had alot of siblings, but it's not like he grew up in the slums or something.

I've watched a few episodes with him as host, and I must say... something about him really puts me off. There's just something creepy about him. Like he was about to murder someone in his dressing room, and before he was able to do it someone called for him to go do the show. So he's trying to put on a 'fun' face, but the whole time all he can think about its getting back to his dressing room and murdering that person. I know this sounds bizarre, but it's the only way I can describe it.

I think with the CSI franchise and Without A Trace CBS is well beyond their "geezer network" image by now. I think those days are long gone.
