In December 2014, Ferguson concluded his ten-year run as the host of CBS’s “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” which had set all-time viewer records and earned him a Primetime Emmy nomination during its run. Ferguson has become a huge success on the North American comedy circuit, performing to sold out theaters all over the country, including New York City’s Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall.

Ferguson can currently be seen on the nationally syndicated game show “Celebrity Name Game,” for which he was awarded the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Game Show Host. The show, from executive producers Courteney Cox and David Arquette, will return in September for its second season. On Sept. 10, 2015, Ferguson was seen in his fourth original stand-up comedy special debuting on EPIX entitled, “Craig Ferguson: Just Being Honest.” The special was filmed at New York City’s Town Hall and focuses on topics spanning from “the deeply meaningless to the profoundly meaningful.”
