Tim Meadows and Craig Ferguson discuss football on 'The Late Late Show'In one of his more famous routines, George Carlin compared football to baseball. Thursday night on 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson' (weeknights, 12:35AM on CBS), Ferguson and Tim Meadows compared football and football, or rather, American football and what we call soccer here in the New World.

Ferguson started the show by having Sid, his white rabbit puppet, talk about how he was looking forward to the new football season, especially his favorite team, the Detroit Lions. "This season," he said, "this is the season for us, the Detroit Lions," before laughing and disappearing from the camera view.

Unfortunately, Meadows' team happens to be the Lions, which Ferguson mentioned with mock surprise. Ferguson doesn't actually know much about American football, and started to get confused when Meadows brought up the Lions' quarterback. "In European football, he'd be the, what?" said Meadows. Ferguson said the center forward. "See, I'm bored already," joked Meadows.

At first I thought Ferguson was funny. Then after watching a few times it was just the same thing over and over. Why does Letterman keep him on the air? His ratings suck. Most people watch Fallon.
