Rosie O’Donnell and Craig Ferguson Are ‘Addicted to Love’

Much to his credit, we didn't really hear much from Craig Ferguson during the month of January. Unlike, say, Jimmy Kimmel, he didn't feel as though he needed to insert himself into the whole Late Shifting conversation as a means of driving up interest in an otherwise marginal program; instead, he just went about his normal, everyday routine of cranking out absurdly hilarious (and tragically underrated) bits with the sort of consistency to which his late-night competition can only aspire. Take, for instance, his off-the-wall cold open from last night's show, a number in which Rosie O'Donnell (someone, BTW, whose presence on television we often find ourselves missing) mimes Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love" while Ferguson shimmies in drag next to her. And, as you might expect, his puppets get into the act, too.
