Ferguson Why Conan Bombed On Tonight

Craig Ferguson apparently thinks he has figured out why Conan O'Brien failed to succeed as Jay Leno's successor on The Tonight Show. "Look at the terrible thing that happened to Conan when Conan tried to do what Jay Leno does," Ferguson told Reuters on Monday. "Conan shouldn't do that. He doesn't do what Jay Leno does. Jay Leno does what Jay Leno does. And then when [Conan] started doing what Conan does, it was too late." As for himself, he insists he has no ambition to replace David Letterman when and if Letterman steps down. (Ferguson's late-night show is produced by Letterman's Worldwide Pants.) "The thing is, Dave's doing a great job and he does what he does. I don't do what David Letterman does," Ferguson said.

The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson is, IMHO, the absolute best show on TV today. I saw his live stand up show (sold out) and wouldn't even leave my seat to go out for a smoke! It was awesome. Highly recommend anyone else to take advantage if they have the opportunity.
