by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 17th 2011 3:00AM
'Craig Ferguson: Does This Need to Be Said?'Every once in a while, comedians just need to cut loose in the only format that really lets them do it still: The stage. 'Craig Ferguson: Does This Need to Be Said?' (Sat., 10PM ET on Comedy Central) allowed 'The Late Late Show' host to do just that.

One of the topics he talked about was the awkward situation David Letterman put him in by having a sex scandal.

"Now the job is make fun of the people who are caught in the sex scandal, but in this case it was my boss," he explained. "Now I have to do the joke, but I'd quite like to keep the f****** job!"

This week, several of our favorite TV clips were infused with political undertones. Betty White prepared to run for the presidency on the double entendre ticket, while Bill O'Reilly wouldn't high five Letterman after admitting he was wrong about the Iraq War. Hank Williams Jr. went on 'The View' to try to explain himself after getting sacked from 'Monday Night Football,' but all that came out was jibberish.

LL Cool J dropped some knowledge in a BET Awards acceptance speech, in what proved to be the high-point of the week for Blackberry. And thankfully, Simon Cowell dumbed it all down by marveling at Wendy Williams' boobs.

James Spader and Craig FergusonNew star of 'The Office' James Spader dropped by 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS) and was offered a strange choice by host Craig Ferguson.

Ferguson said Spader could end their chat with one of the following: "a mouth organ, awkward pause or go for the big cash prize." After mulling it over for a while Spader opted for the awkward pause -- "I'm good at those."

Then Ferguson upped the ante. "We could add in a subtext if you'd like," he said before announcing that the subtext is: "I find you wickedly attractive and I'm trying to sneak a look at your genitals."

Cue really awkward pause with a large helping of creepy subtext.

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.

Craig Ferguson Explains the Physics of Having Big Feet on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Aug 1st 2011 5:45PM
Craig Ferguson and Sharon Osbourne on 'The Talk'Don't blame Craig Ferguson. It's not his fault that physics works the way it does, or that he got an easy set-up from Sharon Osbourne on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). Ferguson was on the show talking about his recent trip to Paris for 'The Late, Late Show,' which included a stop at the Moulin Rouge, where Ferguson donned some ugly workout gear to groove with the dancers.

Julie Chen asked if Richard Simmons knew Ferguson stole his look. "I was trying to look as unattractive as possible in a room full of attractive women and it seems to have paid off," said Ferguson. That's when Osbourne noted Ferguson's big feet, highlighted in the clip by his white shoes and black socks. "I have got big feet," he said. "It's because I've got other big things in my body. It's all proportion, Sharon. It's just proportion. If I didn't have big feet, I'd tip over."

Craig Ferguson on 'Today'On his recent trip to Paris, Craig Ferguson visited with top shoe designer Christian Louboutin, and learned a thing or two about women and shoes. Friday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), Ferguson shared what he learned with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. He also talked about a possible CBS game show and the newly thin version of his old friend Drew Carey.

"He said that when women wear red on the heels of their shoes or the souls of their shoes, it makes them think of wanton sexuality," said Ferguson of Louboutin. "He said it's like sexy underwear. It's like you know it's there even if nobody else does. It's like mmm hmmm. Like the way I'm thinking about my underwear now." That made Gifford curious as to Ferguson's underwear, but he would not provide details. "You don't have to see it," he said, "I just have to know."

Andy Samberg, Shark WeekAndy Samberg has a lot of weight on his shoulders as Shark Week 2011's Chief Shark Officer. But, just how did the 'Saturday Night Live' funnyman get this "jawesome" gig?

"I think I'm Chief Shark Officer for obvious reasons," Samberg said. "I love sharks, I'm a really bad swimmer, Justin Timberlake passed. What else? Mainly the third one."

In the exclusive video interview below, Samberg, while soaking wet and standing in the ocean, details his experiences as Chief Shark Officer.

"The worst thing about being Chief Shark Officer is that I had to go to the Bahamas! It doesn't smell like whiz or homeless people anywhere here," he joked. "I'm just so homesick. It's going to be so sucky when I have to go back."

Rose Byrne & Craig Ferguson, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'We kind of think Craig Ferguson was just waiting for an invitation on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). He was sitting on the couch while Jay Leno was talking to Rose Byrne about her experience working on 'Bridesmaids.'

When Byrne started talking about how Kristen Wiig took the ladies out for a night of bonding, that wound up at a male strip club, Leno started really probing her for details.

"Oh, don't act like you've never been there," Ferguson said to him.

Lewis Black Puts Craig Ferguson In His Place on 'The Late Late Show' (VIDEO)

Lewis Black, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Craig Ferguson likes to sit back and laugh at the foibles of his guests on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:35AM ET on CBS). He's been more than open about his own dark past with drugs and alcohol, so he's coming from a place of commiseration with many of their struggles.

But Ferguson has more than just his past to consider, as pointed out beautifully by Lewis Black. Ferguson was ribbing him about still touring in a bus like the Partridge Family, when Black took the joke a step further and indicated he travels with a fetal pig as well.

Ferguson gave him a startled look, and Black went off. "Don't give me a look like I'm nuts," he shouted. "You're talking to a robot. You're drinking out of a snake glass."

Matthew McConaughey Got Mad at Trace Adkins for Mispronouncing His Name in a Song (VIDEO)

Trace Adkins, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Country singer Trace Adkins was on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS) to let Craig Ferguson know about something very important. Well, admittedly it isn't the reason he went on 'The Late Late Show,' but does anyone ever really get to the reason they're on Ferguson's show? It's more about non-sequiturs and just having a good time.

But things got serious when Ferguson mentioned Matthew McConaughey and stumbled over the pronunciation of it.

"Pronounce his name correctly," Adkins warned. "He gets mad if you don't."

Craig Ferguson Isn't Buying Aaron Eckhart's Story of a Rattlesnake Coiling on His Foot (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 8th 2011 4:13AM
Aaron Eckhart, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'You'd think Craig Ferguson would be a bit more excited about a rattlesnake story, considering his rattlesnake mug and snake tattoo. Alas, as Aaron Eckhart learned on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), the comic can be a bit cynical at times.

He took that cynicism to new heights with Eckhart's story. Let's review the story.

"I was doing a movie in New Mexico. I was running up a slope or something. I bent down to get some breath, and there was a rattlesnake coiling on my foot."

Sounds reasonable, right? There are rattlesnakes in New Mexico. He could have easily disturbed one by running up on it. But that was enough for Ferguson to start calling shenanigans.

Neil Patrick Harris, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Craig Ferguson was trying to be polite throughout Neil Patrick Harris's theatrical tale on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), but you could tell his interest was waning. Harris was talking about the opportunity he got to see the musical version of 'Beauty and the Beast' before it had even premiered.

"A woman was there smoking a cigarette outside and she said, 'Hey, you want to come in and watch the dress rehearsal?'" Harris said.

"That happens to me outside sex clubs," Ferguson replied, bringing it back into his area of interest. But all he needed to do was be patient, because there was a punchline coming.
