Craig Ferguson Introduces the New 'Early Show' Team, Complete With Awkward Pauses (VIDEO)

Craig Ferguson Introduces the New 'Early Show' Team, Complete With Awkward Pauses Well, tomorrow is another day. Unless you're the hosts of 'The Early Show,' that is. Two weeks ago, CBS fired every single member of the perennially-last-place morning talk show. 'Early Show' hosts Harry Smith and Maggie Rodriguez are out. CBS even fired weatherman Dave Price. (Which seems a little unfair to us. What did the weatherman do wrong? Did he miss predicting a tsunami or something?)

In place of the former team, CBS brought in an entirely new crew. Shockingly, they are a bunch of good-looking young people -- the guys wear suits, the women wear short skirts. (Unexpected!) But who are these young kids? On 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), Craig Ferguson tried to figure it all out.

They are: Erica Hill, co-anchor; Marysol Castro, weather anchor; Jeff Glor, news-reader; and Chris Ragge, co-anchor. Nifty! Next, Craig tries to puzzle out how this actually changes anything for the show. "So what new stuff is gonna be happening?" he asks. "Are you gonna have new weather?"

Yes
, says Marysol. "Somewhere, it's be gonna sunny; and somewhere, it's gonna be ... not sunny." Fantastic. Please, say no more.

No, really -- please say no more. After Craig establishes that the weather will indeed change every day, things run into an unexpected cul-de-sac. "Are you gonna have awkward pauses on your show?" he asks. "Always!" Erica replies.

"Like ... ... ... ... this?" Craig asks, as an awkward pause suddenly fills up the room.

It's waaaaaaaay past time to replace that idiot, Harry Smith. I got soooooo sick of constantly hearing him interrupting his guests and his never ending "uh huh" during those same interviews.
But CBS made a mistake by inserting Hill with the others. She's already starting to "pork-out" and will be the laggard of the replacement team.
