Well, that didn’t take long.
Slated to premiere in the fall of 2015, the program will air weeknights at 7pm across Tribune stations as part of a lead-in to primetime. Reruns of popular sitcoms like The Big Bang Theory would then follow at 7:30pm.
Ferguson announced his departure from The Late Late Show in April, not long after CBS announced that Stephen Colbert would be replacing David Letterman as the host of Late Show, "CBS and I are not getting divorced, we are 'consciously uncoupling,'" Ferguson said at the time. "We will still spend holidays together and share custody of the fake horse and robot skeleton, both of whom we love very much."
Ferguson officially signs off from The Late Late Show in December. Although CBS hasn't officially revealed his successor, reports are circulating that British comedian and Tony-winner James Corden will take the job.
What do you think? Is Ferguson a good fit to usher in primetime?
