Craig Ferguson

  1. Facebook Page “I F-ing Love Science” Is Getting A TV Series, With Craig Ferguson Producing

    she blinded me with science

    Here at The Mary Sue, we fucking love science. We love smart ladies doing cool things, too. Therefore, we take it as rather exciting news that the enormously popular I Fucking Love Science Facebook page is evolving into a brand spanking new TV show. The series has been greenlit by the Science Channel, and CBS’ Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson will be taking the helm as executive producer. Elise Andrew, the one-woman team behind the Facebook page, is coming aboard as consulting producer.

  2. Your Daily Dose of Doctor Who, Scottish Accents, and Wonderful, Wonderful Hair [VIDEO]

    Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Stuff

    Watch Karen Gillan be adorable and Scottish with the similarly adorable and Scottish Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show. Laugh! As they discuss the perils of a Scotsman moving to Los Angeles. Marvel! As Karen sings in Gaelic and has trouble putting a party hat on. Look on in amazement! As a poor, poor coconut meets its untimely demise. It's hard for me to pick my favorite part of this seven minutes, one second of pure Scottish wonderment and fabulous hair. But I think Gillan and Ferguson gently making fun of Matt Smith near the beginning might have to top the list.

  3. New Brave Images Show Merida’s Swordplay Skills

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    We've been witnessing Princess Merida's skill with a bow for a while (and even seen a real-life redhead doing the same) but now we know she's a very well-rounded lady. Disney-Pixar released two new stills from Brave that show she's also quite good at swordfighting. Hit the jump for the other new shot.

  4. Alex Kingston and Craig Ferguson Talk The Doctor Who Movie and Neil Gaiman

    It Goes Ding When There's Stuff

    Everybody knows that Craig Ferguson is the biggest nerd on Late Night television (sorry, Jimmy, but you know it's true), so it should come as no surprise that when he had Alex Kingston on last night to talk about the recently released Like Crazy, the do absolutely no such thing and just start talking about steampunk, Neil Gaiman, and how Matt Smith smells. Enjoy. Previously in Craig Ferguson

  6. Pixar’s Brave And Their Bear-Hunting Anti-Princess

    Pretty Pretty Princess

    Princesses in animated features are usually occupied with royal duties and finding Prince Charming. Not that there's anything wrong with that but it's a breath of fresh air to hear Pixar will soon be giving us a princess who's more interested in her bow and arrow skills in the wilderness than her hair. Brave co-director Mark Andrews has opened up about the new tale, the first Pixar film with a female heroine as its star, which is sure to become an instant classic with little ones (and adults) everywhere.

  8. Amanda Palmer, Neil Gaiman, Craig Ferguson, and Rocky Horror. Also The Muppets and the WWE

    i'll just leave this here

    I couldn't decide which to post. So I asked the internet. This only added to the confusion. So I'm posting both, and you'll just have to deal with it. Above, you'll find a clip from Craig Ferguson's Halloween show, where Amanda Palmer, Moby, Stephin Merritt, and yes Neil Gaiman perform Science Fiction Double Feature, a.k.a., the lips song from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Below, you'll find an appearance by Fozzie and Gonzo on WWE Raw, where terrible things happen and Gonzo cancels his appointment with his chiropractor.

  9. Craig Ferguson Teaches Elmo the Word “Experiment” [Video]

    Ask a Muppet

    In a highly academic lesson, Craig Ferguson teaches Elmo about what an experiment is. This particular experiment involves chickens lifting a comedian and transporting him somewhere. And that means next week's word is "irony"! They will not be calling Alanis Morrissette to explain it. (That was a 1990s joke.) (via Sesame Street on YouTube)

  10. 20 Reasons to Be Excited About Brave (As If You Weren’t Already)

    Bear Time

    Two weeks ago, the first official teaser for Pixar’s Brave premiered with the release of Cars 2, giving Cars 2 a reason to exist. At the time I was too busy performing in a show, reviewing shows, holding down a job and keeping my cat happy to be properly excited. This week, though, I have had enough of a break to appreciate how excited I am. And I am excited. Stupidly excited. Obnoxiously excited. I am more excited for this movie than I am for all the Christmasses to come. I am more excited for this movie than I am for my brother’s upcoming wedding (sorry, Josh). I am more excited for this movie than I am for Captain America, the drunken laugh-fest that will be Breaking Dawn, and any and all movies featuring Alan Rickman. I am in fact so excited that it is actually making me angry. Why do I have to wait another year for this movie? I want it now. I will Veruca Salt all over this place until I get my very own Brave!

    and let it be known

    It watched this video again this morning, to try and make some "highlights" to entice you to watch it, but there are just too many.

    Bear Time

    More and more official art from the newest Pixar movie Brave is coming out (in case you missed the teaser poster, that is here), and now, we're finally getting a good close look at four of the main characters.

  13. Andy Samberg Is Hosting Shark Week

    Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

    Geek heartthrob/my "TV boyfriend" Andy Samberg has signed on as the host of Discovery Channel's 24th Annual Shark Week. He is also being named as the first-ever Chief Shark Officer (CSO), which means he's like a boss. A boss of sharks. Sharks with whom he might swim. According to the incredibly excited press release:
    As CSO, Samberg will host the network’s 24th annual SHARK WEEK celebration, cable’s longest running programming event and the official mark of summer. He will film on-air wraps for the weeklong event, host a SHARK WEEK special and may even take the plunge and dive with the apex predators ... Said Samberg: “I’m overjoyed about being appointed CSO. Everyone loves Shark Week. It’s the Bill Cosby of week-long television blocks dedicated to sea animals.”

  14. Lost “Doctor Who” Open from Craig Ferguson

    Thanks to the YouTube, a lost moment of brilliance has been recaptured from oblivion–the lost “Doctor Who” dance number pulled from Craig Ferguson’s Late Late Show two weeks ago. Ferguson had planned to open the show with a huge puppet-laden, go-go booted dancer-filled musical number set to the famous Doctor Who music, complete with lyrics explaining the show to confused Americans–only to have the skit cut by producers. >>>Find out why at Mediaite.

  15. Craig Ferguson and his Robot Skeleton: United at Last

    On last night's Late Late Show, Craig Ferguson fans finally got the payoff they've long been waiting for in the form of Geoff Peterson, the robot sidekick that Mythbuster Grant Imahara agreed to build Ferguson if he could amass more than 100,000 Twitter followers. (It happened very, very quickly.)

    Geoff Peterson's robotic powers include laughing at any joke Ferguson tells at the push of a button, shooting off catchphrases, and, well, being a robot skeleton.

    As jocular a pursuit as robot skeleton-building might seem, Imahara took the challenge of building Geoff Peterson quite seriously:

  16. Steven Wright on Craig Ferguson: Twitter, Llamas, David Caruso

    Steven Wright is the kind of cult comedian whose cult is particularly strong among the geeky crowd: Like Norm Macdonald or Mitch Hedberg (RIP), Wright's routine is all about logic, structure, and (extremely deadpan) delivery rather than gross-out jokes or 'attitude.'

    He was in fine form on last night's Late Late Show with his friend Craig Ferguson, in whom he seemed to bring out the best: They riffed on Ferguson's robot-winning Twitter obsession (Wright: "Do you have to know everyone that you're twittering with?" Ferguson: "No. It's like sex in the 1970s."), llamas (Wright: "I used to know two llamas in the early '70s. They're very arrogant. They think they're cool because they don't talk"), and internet favorite David Caruso.

    It's telling that when Wright simply said of Caruso, "he's a good actor," he got a big round of shocked laughter. They should send Wright to (puts sunglasses on) the funny farm.

  17. Mythbuster Grant Imahara will Build Craig Ferguson a “Robot Sidekick,” for 100,000 Twitter Followers [Update]

    Late night host Craig Ferguson is a huge Mythbusters geek: since he joined Twitter last month, a good number of his tweets have been about how terrific Mythbusters is and how he maybe watches too much of the show. Now, Mythbuster Grant Imahara has thrown down the gauntlet: if he gets 100,000 Twitter followers, he will build Craig Ferguson a robot sidekick.

  18. Craig Ferguson Goes Audience-Free For A Night, Wins Wide Acclaim

    Craig Ferguson of CBS' Late Late Show isn't shy about experimenting with the late-night format, with his pre-monologue monologues (which often include puppets), and lack of a band. The show he did last night, however, was a radical departure even for him. Inspired by Tom Snyder, the first Late Late Show host, Ferguson did a show with no audience, instead talking to friend/Hugh Laurie co-conspirator Stephen Fry for the full hour. Ferguson said having such an interesting guest was "protection" for him (another possible description: "smart"), but even so, Ferguson performed as well as could be expected working in a format with which he was unfamiliar, and further staked his place as one of television's most versatile talents.
