Lewis Black, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'After a threatening letter arrived at the studio for 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS) with white powder in it, which was ultimately declared harmless, the show went on and Lewis Black came on as Craig Ferguson's guest.

"It's always really a joy to drive up for a big night on television and see cops everywhere," Black said of the state in the studio when he arrived. When Ferguson asked if he'd ever gotten any threats like that, Black insisted, "I have no affect on the world, so they don't care. They don't even notice me."

It sounded like Black would love the validation of a threatening letter with some mysterious white powder in it, though we're certainly not endorsing anyone sending him anything. As for the powder, it turned out to just be corn starch, so maybe Ferguson simply had an angry fan who liked to cook.

"I thought maybe they sent you a recipe and went, Hey, and here's a little corn starch to start with," Black said.
