1. well, while it was good to see KO, that was rather disappointing...

then again, I don't find CF particularly funny so there is that....

Sadly, the longer KO is vanquished from any kind of ongoing tv presence, the less likely I think we will ever see him return...

9. I know it's a matter of taste, and I'm not casting aspersions, but

I think Craig Ferguson is LOL funny. I wish I could watch him every night, but he's on, here, between 12:30 and 1:30 am, and most of the time I have to get up very early (like 5 am), and I can't stay up that late.

Yeah, some of what he does is silliness, but his interactions with his gay robot skelton, Geoffrey Peterson, are pretty creative, and of all the impersonations he does, his takeoff of Larry King is spot on, as far as the body language, wearing a shirt a couple of sizes too large and licking his lips like Larry does.

I think he's really talented, and he pulled himself out of a life of drugs and alcohol. I give him credit for that.

11. Sure.. I don't dislike Ferguson, but just haven't seen him very frequently-- too late for me

and last night just didn't seem like CF was on the "top of his game".

2. I tuned in to see what KO was up to

He went across country to appear on a Late Night show.

Surely there would be an announcement that he had a new gig. Did I miss it?

4. KO likes to work. Am sure he is looking into options he can live with.

6. Current didn't even pay for a decent set for him...

Here's the set for "The Young Turks"



Here's what they gave Keith towards the end:



It was just him at a desk with a black background. It looked like a hostage video. He said his "studio" was in a trailer.

Keep in mind that they claimed he would be put in charge of their entire news division,...if they could ever afford to have one.

8. I'm scratching my head

What was the point of his appearance? He's been out of the loop for a while, then flies across the country to dance around with a horse.

16. Am sure there was a reason besides the show. Perhaps he is working on his options.

14. It certainly started a discussion....

We even had one message auto-removed.

That's usually a good sign.

13. I expected more from the interview as well.

Nothing really happened. Now, Craig Ferguson with Billy Connelly-that's another story. Those two Scots are precious when they get together.
