How About Something Lighter?

Dave Letterman has announced he will be retiring in 2015.

Good. He's plainly been longing for retirement for about ten years now.

I asked a while ago, because it's been obsessing me: Will Craig Fergussen play in the 11:30 slot?

I have no idea why Craig Fergussen has been obsessing me, but he has. I barely watch his show, but when I do, I like it, and keep wondering why I never saw it until four months ago (after several morons recommended it).

The catchy theme (which he wrote and sings) obsesses me. As do his odd choices in second and third bananas: a gay robot skeleton named Geoff Peterson and a pantomime horse.

Because the show is almost entirely improvised, it feels different than other shows. It might be good, it might be bad. Either way, it's all pretty much made up on the spot.

Anyway, I hope CBS gives him a chance to do the show as it exists right now, and don't screw it all up by demanding it be just like every other damn show on late night, with scripted crap. The scripted jokes aren't funny anyway; at least if someone's making them up on the spot there's a sports-like interest in the jokes (in as much as one's curious to see if someone can pull something off).

With an increasingly fractured audience, there is a lot to be said for doing something that's a little bit different. No, not everyone's going to watch a foul-mouthed Scotsman make up jokes with his gay robot skeleton friend and waste network time by reading emails and tweets on the air.

But you're not going to get a large audience anyway, are you?

Rumors: People seem to think that Ferguson might be some kind of conservative. I really have no idea. I doubt it. He's Scottish/European and a performing artist.

However, I do see why people might say that.

Bonus: Is This Something?

Let me answer that for you, to save you the time: No.

To save you some more time, I'll tell you what it's called: "Combat Juggling."

But to keep you from being mislead into thinking this is interesting, I'll tell you what it really is: Jugglers trying to interfere with other jugglers juggling-pins.

Coming Soon: XXXTreme Improv.
