Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson at CBS Studios in Hollywood. The last time I was here was when Craig Kilborn was the host of the Late Late Show. Lei is a big fan of Craig Ferguson which is why she got us tickets.
Although it is Tuesday they were taping Friday night's show. Since the studio is so small they started by shooting the musical guest, county singer Justin Moore. After rearranging the set they ran through the whole show from the start with various regular segments and an interview with actor James Woods. The Woods interview went long so they had to bump the other scheduled guest, actress Kathryn Hahn, but they still taped her segment with us which will air next Tuesday night. I don't watch Craig's show but he seems to play more to the cameras than the studio audience. We were also encouraged by staff to laugh at everything, which I found a bit annoying as most other shows will play off of a joke succeeding or failing. It was an interesting taping to attend though- certainly a bit different from the other late night shows I've seen.
