Craig Ferguson says on his final 'Late Late Show': 'I wanted to make this clear, I'm not retiring'

Why 'The Colbert Report’s' finale was a cop-out

Craig Ferguson says on his final “Late Late Show”: "I wanted to make this clear, I'm not retiring”
Read spoilers from tonight’s “Late Late Show” finale, in which Ferguson alludes to reports that he’ll be back with a new early evening syndicated talk show featuring his “Late Late” sidekicks.


Why “The Colbert Report’s” finale was a cop-out
The celeb-filled finale, says Megan Garber, "was the star-gazing stuff that is so extremely typical of most late-night television: Look at all those celebrities! On one stage! Singing! You could read all that as Colbert bidding a fond farewell to irony as he leaves Comedy Central for the warm embrace of network TV. But it's hard not to note how starkly it contrasts with the thousands of episodes of ‘Colbert' that preceded it.” PLUS: Of course “Colbert” wasn’t going to die.


Revamped “Mythbusters” has "a new look, a new vibe, and it’s become more educational again”
Exec producer Dan Tapster and Adam Savage discuss the changes to the Discovery Channel series now that Grant Imahara, Kari Byron and Tory Belleci are gone. And Savage confirms that he and Jamie Hyneman — "we’re not friends.”

Colbert sent his TV character off into TV eternity with a finale that was "both a sweet ending and a perfect summation of the show’s spirit,” says James Poniewozik, who adds: "The finale nodded to the massive creation that Colbert wrought over nine years, and — as he flew off with Santa, a unicorn Abraham Lincoln, and Alex Trebek — promised something different to come.” PLUS: Watch the final 10 minutes of “The Colbert Report,” Keith Olbermann offers behind-the-scenes pics, here’s a list of the celebrity cameos, celebs tried to stay out of James Franco’s line of fire, and how the closing credits song reminded Colbert of the tragedy that killed his father and two brothers.

RIP 'Stephen Colbert,' 1997-2014

Colbert is easily comparable to Mark Twain

RIP “Stephen Colbert," 1997-2014
"The American political scene has lost one of its towering characters with the untimely demise of Stephen Colbert,” Rolling Stone says in its obituary for the character that departs tonight. "He was 50. Feared by many, hated by some, watched by all, Colbert leaves an uncertain legacy for the media he revolutionized and the culture he altered. Without him on TV four nights a week, there is a truth-shaped hole in our national political discourse.”


Colbert is easily comparable to Mark Twain
"What compares to 'The Colbert Report' in the history of American entertainment and humor,” says Hank Stuever, "in which the material and the society that it lampooned were so intertwined? The work of Mark Twain easily comes to mind (another case of a talented writer and cultural commentator inhabiting a fully realized persona at just the right moment), and, to a lesser degree, so does the work of Will Rogers. Both men are inextricably identified with the kind of America they  lived in and the kind of technology it invented — from telegraph wires and a burgeoning print media industry to the eventual wonders of radio and film.” PLUS: “Truthiness” was one of the best “Colbert” moments, Colbert paying tribute to his mom was another great moment, we’re losing one of TV’s greatest characters, he was the most inspired political activist of the 21st century, “Cheating Death With Dr. Stephen Colbert, D.F.A.” was one of late-night’s funniest bits, analyzing Colbert’s introductory phrases, watch the ultimate “Colbert” supercut, Colbert’s most genius moments, 11 times the fake Colbert did something real, Colbert was late-night’s most passionate book nerd, remembering Colbert’s most awkward interviews, Colbert’s genius was apparent in the 1st episode, Colbert’s 10-best “Better Know a District” segments, Colbert’s best musical moments, here's ranking every “Colbert” bit, recalling Colbert’s real-life controversies, 13 Colbert cameos you might have missed, why “Colbert’s” interviews are irreplaceable, and relive the 10 most iconic moments from each year.


4 Colbert “enemies” bid him farewell
Suey Park, Google, Jimmy Fallon and “Crappy” Canton, Georgia Mayor Gene Hobgood react to Colbert’s departure. Says Google: “We respect Stephen and his show very much. It’s always hard to know the true measure of a man—and we’ve certainly had our differences—but we can say without an inch of a doubt, he’s reached new heights in comedy.” PLUS: Colbert’s 12 biggest adversaries.

Kiefer Sutherland thinks he's done with “24"
In an interview with the UK’s Telegraph, Sutherland was asked if he had moved on from the Jack Bauer role: “Me, I don’t see going back to it,” he says. "We had set out to do 12 episodes to end the show and deal with some of the past history of the show. It was also an irresistible opportunity to go shoot in England. So for all of those reasons it made sense to do that last season.”
