David Letterman is retiring from Late Show with David Letterman next year but he won’t be the first CBS late night host out of the door. Craig Ferguson, the host of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, has announced his plan to depart the program this December.
The move isn’t completely unexpected with Ferguson being passed over as host of Letterman’s show and also picking up a new job as host of a new syndicated game show.
