Joel McHale, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Joel McHale couldn't catch a break on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). McHale may be the king of snark over on 'The Soup,' but he's working off a script over there. Craig Ferguson works off the cuff, and sometimes it just comes at you too fast to react.

Ferguson slammed McHale's broadcast network NBC, and even interrupts McHale's story about his experience at Wimbledon to dig into him some more. McHale said of Wimbledon, "I didn't realize what happens there."

At that point, Ferguson very slowly explained, "One hits the ball over the net and somebody hits the ball back. It's not the most complicated sport in the world."

Jessica Lange, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'After admiring Craig Ferguson's tattoo, 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS) host got Jessica Lange to admit that she did have a tattoo. While she wouldn't say exactly where it was, she used hand gestures to indicate that it's down around back.

Joking around, Ferguson said that he obviously didn't know exactly where it was, to which Lange responded coyly, "You don't know. You forgot I'm sure."

With a smile and a wink, she appeared to have him a bit flummoxed, if only momentarily, and that's no small accomplishment on this show.

"I'm straight and I wasn't looking," Craig Ferguson agreed. He then asked Kressley why he isn't dancing with a man, considering he's a gay man and that's what he'd do in his personal life.

Kressley said it was something he'd teased about before finding out who he was paired with, and genuinely considered as something he might want to do. That is, until he tried to lift up Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Rashida Jones, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Usually when you're watching a talk show interview, it feels like something designed either for our entertainment, or to plug a project. On rare occasions, though, it becomes a chat so intimate, you almost feel like a voyeur listening in. That's what happened with Rashida Jones on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS).

She and Craig Ferguson started talking about 'Project Runway,' which is clearly a show they both love and follow very closely. They started breaking down the challenge from last week -- too many beards -- and then started getting into it about how cool judge Michael Kors is.

Mary Lynn Rajskub, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'When Mary Lynn Rajskub came onto the set for her appearance on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), she was looking fabulous. Craig Ferguson certainly appreciated her new look, but asked her what happened.

When she was evasive as to why she was so sexy tonight, he asked if it was CBS's doing.

"CBS told me I need to be hot as hell and a basket of b****iness," she said with a straight face. She went on to describe the network trying to force her to show her chest before she came out.

It looked like the audience was about to boo the network, so she had to quickly tell them she was joking. Even if they had, Ferguson was quick to point out that it hadn't worked.

Jonah Hill, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Jonah Hill loves pranks, or maybe he's just an easy target. He recently talked about Brad Pitt pranking his golf cart on the set of 'Moneyball,' but that was nothing compared to what another friend did. Hill told the tale on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), and while he was laughing, Craig Ferguson was horrified.

This friend misled him about how snorkels work, telling him he could go as deep into the ocean as he wanted. "I went all the way to the bottom of the ocean, and when I couldn't breathe anymore, I took in a huge breath of water and came up and was choking," Hill laughed.

Ferguson, though, wondered if this was really a friend at all. The two turned it into a bit, with Hill talking about other pranks she did on him to try and kill him like poisoning his food and cutting the brake lines on his car. You know, the kinds of things friends do all the time to one another.

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.

Harry Connick Jr., 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'It's an awkward position to be put in when another man tells you his wife has a crush on you. Craig Ferguson certainly seemed uncomfortable on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS) when he found out that this was the case with Mrs. Harry Connick Jr.

After Connick told him about the crush, Ferguson asked, "Are you gonna hit me or something, man?"

He thought Connick was looking more threatening than usual, insisting it must mean Connick has been bulking up by working out. But Connick had another way to look more intimidating.

"I bought some smaller suits," he joked. Now that's a clever way for a smaller guy to look suddenly a lot tougher.

Keith Olbermann, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Keith Olbermann was on a prediction streak, though he certainly made an unlikely one for 'Dancing With the Stars' on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:30AM ET on CBS). Now, he didn't come out and say that he thinks she'll win, but he did predict that Nancy Grace will do well.

As for the upcoming presidential election, while Olbermann sees the Republicans ultimately rallying behind Texas governor Rick Perry for their candidate, he sees Barack Obama repeating.

"Unless there's a sudden draft Keith movement," Olbermann said. Certainly more unlikely candidates have found themselves joining the election discussion as candidates. But if he ran with Geoff, as he suggested, which would you rather as our president and which for veep?

Danny DeVito Shows Off His New Look on 'The Late Late Show' (VIDEO)

Danny DeVito, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Ever since he became famous on 'Taxi' more than 30 years ago, Danny DeVito has pretty much looked the same. But now he's sporting a brand new look, which he showed off on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:30AM ET on CBS).

"I just cut it all off and made it blonde," he explained. "There was a 'Vanity Fair' years ago with Marilyn Monroe on it, and I said to the hairdresser, 'Give me that!'"

Of course, with DeVito's horseshoe-pattern baldness, it's a far cry from Marilyn Monroe's flowing locks, but that isn't to say the blonde isn't noticeable. What was funnier was how excited he was about his new look. He even bought new glasses to match his lighter shade. Clearly, blondes do have more fun!

But when pressed for them, she simply made some up, though it didn't seem to bother Craig Ferguson one bit. This lead to Graham realizing she would be a terrible stripper, as she lacks the "weird guts" they must have.
