Stephen Colbert isn’t the only one saying goodbye: A look back at “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” — salon.com

In 2015, Stephen Colbert (sans conservative persona) will head to CBS to helm “The Late Show.” His departure from “The Colbert Report” is one we’ve been prominently mourning. Yet there’s another long-time comedian leaving his late-night show this week: Craig Ferguson of CBS’s the “Late Late Show.” Ferguson took the reins of “The Late Late Show” from Craig Kilborn in 2004. (Kilborn, in another episode of intense late-night chair shuffling, had preceded Jon Stewart as host of  ”The Daily Show,” before heading to CBS in 1999.)
