According to reports, the exiting host of CBS's The Late Late Show may not be going too far. Craig Ferguson is in talks to do a syndicated talk show for the Tribune stations that will not only be very similar to his existing show, but will even film in the same studio. But the show will not be part of the late night circus as it would be slated to run at 7:00 pm, a time slot with no real competition for that type of show.
Ferguson is already lined up to host the new game show Celebrity Name Game that will debut before his tenure on the Late Late show ends in December.
It's not known if Ferguson's robotic sidekick Geoff Peterson or Secretariat the pantomime horse will be part of the new talk show.
