After what has seemed like an endless hiatus, Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson is back tonight (or early in the morning) with new shows in their brand-spanking-new studio. I’m really excited.
You know who’s not excited?
Craig likes to joke that the CBS brass don’t know he’s on the air. That he can get away with the nonsense that he does because they simply don’t have a clue that there is a show on after David Letterman. It’s funny schtick.
I’m starting to believe him.
Tonight’s new Late Late Show is going to be broadcast from his shiny new studio — a studio that was part of Craig’s two-year contract renewal. One might assume this cost CBS a little bit of pocket change. So you’d think they might want to promote the event.
But to date, I have seen nary a promo on TV. Nothing in print. Even CBS.com doesn’t mention it, not even on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson page.
Come to think of it — I did get a tweet yesterday.
But I think it was from someone like me, anxious for the shows to begin.
