With all the phoniness and bickering and backstabbing between the late night TV hosts, here’s a bit of late night talk we don’t get enough of. Craig Ferguson uses a pledge to make no more Britney Spears jokes to move onto a deeply personal story of how he realised he himself had an alcohol problem. This is plain awesome and refreshingly honest, yet funny at the same time. How come he isn’t moved up to the 10 o’clock spot and everybody else goes back to playing with their LEGO?
BTW, the video is from two years back, so it’s not a direct response to this “late night war” going on outside (no man is safe from*), but that just means Craig is ahead of his time.
