Late Late Show Highlights

The cold open from last night’s Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson was ok. This isn’t the whole segment, but seeing this clip will help you to understand Craig’s goofiness later in the show:

Here were my favorite monologue jokes:

Why is it a great day for America? Well, the Oscars is finally over. At least I think it’s over. I stopped watching a couple of hours ago, but I think it’s over now. You know, I stopped watching when they made that joke about Liza Minnelli. What?!? I will not stand for that! Liza Minnelli is my spirit animal.

From what I hear the stars really let loose at the after-parties at the Oscars. There are rumors in Hollywood right now that Angelina Jolie ate a carb.

On this day in 1845 the state of Florida was admitted into the Union. Ponce de Leon discovered Florida and called it “La Florida,” which means “land of spring break.” He discovered Florida while looking for the Fountain of Youth. Nobody knows if Ponce de Leon ever found the Fountain of Youth. But since he died in 1521, my guess is…probably not.

The comedy segment was an eclectic mix of bits that included “Tweetmail”. It was pretty crazy and reasonably entertaining, so you may want to watch it:

Meredith Vieira was the first couch guest. She will be hosting a new daytime talk show later this year. The interview was quite good. Meredith was a lot of fun. She and Craig shared multiple laughs and some amusing tidbits. They played off each other very well. Here’s the interview, which wins the award for Best Part of the Show:

Josh Radnor was the second couch guest. He is one of the stars of How I Met Your Mother. The interview was a completely wasted opportunity. Josh mentioned early on that he had just finished taping the final episode of HIMYM the previous Friday. Craig didn’t understand this until the end of the interview, however, so almost no time was spent on the milestone or the significance of the show’s nine year run. Furthermore, Craig’s attempt to get Josh to talk about what Josh planned to do next went nowhere and was uninteresting.

The closing segment was too quick to care about.

Fine show. I give it:
