Late Late Show Highlights

The pre-opening credit segment from last night’s Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson was terrific:

Here were my favorite monologue jokes:

Did you watch the 60 Minutes last night? President Obama was describing watching the Navy Seals as they entered bin Laden’s compound. He admitted he was very nervous. And it didn’t help that every two second Joe Bidden kept saying, “Are we there yet? Are we there yet?”

Also, it is a great day for Sir Paul McCartney. He’s getting married again. Congratulations Sir Paul. The two plan on having an intimate ceremony, which is a nice way of saying that Ringo’s not invited.

Allergy season in LA is very very bad this year. How bad is it? It’s so bad the Lakers did nothing but choke.

You know who I blame for this allergy stuff? Pollen. That’s right pollen; I’m calling you out bitch. Pollen is a fine power that plants use to fertilize other plants. Throughout the 1980’s I also used a fine power. Talcum power. I use to chaff easily while I was high on cocaine.

There was no desk segment, which means there was no tweetmail. Bummer.

Jeff Goldblum was the first couch guest. He’s an actor. I’m sure he’s working on something, but neither Craig nor Jeff mentioned anything. The interview was ok. Jeff was very mellow and, honestly, slightly odd. Maybe he’s just like that normally. Regardless, he seemed kinda out of place on the Late Late show to me. I think the fact that they really didn’t have anything concrete to focus their conversation on just left them both wandering without much purpose. If anyone can still pull of an entertaining interview under those circumstances, it’s Craig, but this time it didn’t happen for me.

Sarah Chalke was the second couch guest. She is on the show Mad Love. The interview was decent, but a little boring. There were some funny bits, mostly provided by Craig, but the chemistry between them just wasn’t very exciting.

The closing segment was pretty much non-existent.

Fine show. I give it:

– Woody
