CBS Exec Says New Craig Ferguson Replacement Might Not Be a Talk Show

By

It’s been three months since Craig Ferguson announced he’s leaving CBS’s The Late Late Show in December, and the network has yet to say who his replacement will be. CBS entertainment chief  Nina Tassler, in a Q&A with TV critics today said that the network’s new 12:35am program might not even be a talk show. Here’s what she had to say:

“There’s certainly a knee-jerk reaction to go for a more traditional, behind-the-desk interview format, but who knows? This is an opportunity us look at all kinds of hosts — not only from the comic world, but maybe the political world. Right now, we’re doing our homework and having a lot of meetings and talking. We want to make the right decision.”
