An Unexpected Entity
So, this is interesting: Last Friday The Hollywood Reporter published a story claiming that Craig Ferguson is close on a deal to host a new syndicated talk show next year. From the article:
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Ferguson is finalizing a deal to host a new talker for Tribune-owned stations. Somewhat surprisingly, the new show will not be part of late night, likely airing at 7:30 p.m. That will alleviate a lot of similar competition for Ferguson, though the earlier start time is relatively untested waters for the format.
