Late Late Show Highlights

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

Here were my favorite monologue jokes:

It’s a great day for America everybody. It is, but not a great day for one American, New York Congressman Anthony Weiner. Kinda writes itself, doesn’t it? I call him Tony Weiner, not to be confused with Nathan Lane, who’s a Tony winner.

It seems like Weiner is in a bit of hot water. Congressman Weiner’s Twitter account was hacked, allegedly, and someone texted a picture of his junior senator to a college girl. Now, this is good news for me, cause now I can go on the CBS computer and Google “weiner photos” at work and not get fired.

I can’t believe though that the media is making such a big deal over this little thing. Anyway, the congressman thinks the hackers are targeting him because of his last name. Which is very bad news for congressman Harry Vagina.

The desk segment was tweetmail. I wasn’t very entertaining, so we’re going to skip the clip.

David Beckham was the first couch guest. He is a famous athlete who currently plays for the Los Angeles Galaxy. The interview was pretty good. Craig asked David some simple questions that sparked decent conversations, and mixed them up with some harmless ribbing that David handled with a good attitude. Here’s the interview:

Shohreh Aghdashloo was the second couch guest. She is an Iranian American actress. The interview was great. Shohreh’s beauty, charisma and playfulness were exciting to watch. Craig’s infatuation with her was understandable and very funny. Here’s the interview:

The closing segment brought the show full-circle:

Fine show. I give it:
