When Ted Danson was on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) a few weeks ago, he conducted his interview from bed, in pajamas, surrounded by the talkshow's group of female hosts. As it turns out, Danson's wife, actress Mary Steenburgen, wasn't watching the interview live, but she did hear about it ... right before boarding an airplane.

Steenburgen described getting a text from a friend with the message, "Oh my god, I'm laughing so hard at your husband in bed with all those women," right before she had to shut her phone down for a five-hour flight.

Ted Danson, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Ted Danson's wife was really cramping Craig Ferguson's style on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), and she wasn't even there. When Ferguson asked Danson about his penis size, as he is wont to do, Danson said, "One of the rules when I got married was I don't get to talk about my penis."

Another rule, apparently, was that he wasn't allowed to do any more nude scenes, after the one he did in the 2005 film 'The Amateurs.' And yet, his wife, Mary Steenburgen, has done tons of sex scenes.

"Steve Martin, Johnny Depp, it goes on and on," Danson lamented.

When Julie Chen announced that 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) was going to "Get in bed with Ted," she meant it literally. Danson rolled out on an oversized bed, surrounded by Sheryl Underwood, Sharon Osbourne, Sarah Gilbert and Aisha Tyler. Julie put on the silky robe that was waiting for her and joined the group, which Osbourne joked was "like the UN on here."

Sarah Gilbert asked Danson, who tries to eat a mostly vegan diet, what tempts him more: a beautiful woman or a juicy cheeseburger. He thought it over for a moment and then responded, "You're asking me if I would rather eat a cheeseburger ..." and trailed off as Julie broke in and yelled, "Don't go there, Ted! Don't even!"

Afterwards, he headed off to meet up with them, but to calm his nerves he may have smoked a little bit too much weed. He started seeing spies and people watching him everywhere, so much that he stole his daughter's boyfriend's bike and ultimately dumped his phone in a mailbox.

That's what happened when Brass terrified a kid about getting destroyed in prison on 'CSI' (Wed., 10PM ET on CBS). The kid apparently thought they had him over a barrel, even though he didn't do it, so he confessed to the murders to try and get leniency.

Case closed, until a young woman came in saying they had the wrong guy and she was the one who murdered the family. Only later, they find more evidence in another guys' truck and when they bring him in for questioning, his father shows up and says he killed the family.

Ted Danson Tells Martha Stewart He Can't Cook and Talk at the Same Time (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Mar 29th 2011 5:20PM
Ted Danson on 'The Martha Stewart Show'Sure, Ted Danson can talk and cook at the same time if a role calls for it. But today on 'The Martha Stewart Show' (weekdays, 10AM on Hallmark), he admitted that would just be a fine bit of acting. In real life, talking and cooking are too difficult for Danson to pull off simultaneously.

Danson was stirring contents in a bowl for a recipe while Stewart asked him about 'Bored to Death' and his busy schedule. Danson stopped stirring and declared it impossible to talk and cook. Stewart pointed out that Danson is an actor, and he said, "I pretend to cook" and pantomimed stirring while talking. He may use the occasional interjection while cooking at home.

From that point, Danson was just an assistant, helping Stewart finish the recipe. What else does Danson not know how to do? Can he not mix drinks like Sam? Can he not set a splint like Becker? Can he not raise a child awkwardly yet hilariously with two other men? Sorry you had to find out this way, Danson fans.

Ted Danson Shares Video for Steve Carell on 'Late Night'To reduce his carbon footprint, Jimmy Fallon decided to turn the lights down off for his interview with Ted Danson on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC). Under the beam of a flashlight, Danson shared that he and wife Mary Steenburgen made a special video honoring Steve Carell as he prepares to leave 'The Office.'

In the clip, Steenburgen wore her Dunder Mifflin bathrobe in solidarity. But when the camera panned to Danson, he was clutching his two Emmys from 'Cheers' and gaping longingly at the television. 'Cheers' clips played, accompanied by the series' famous theme song at full blast.

"Beware, Steve Carell. This could happen to you," Steenburgen noted somberly. Back in the 'Late Night' studio, Fallon decided it was time to turn the lights up to get their bearings. Danson suddenly had a guest-couch buddy: Pee-Wee Herman.
