As host of The Late Late Show, Craig Ferguson spent much of his 10-year tenure dragging the talk show format into increasingly bizarre territory. So when he hosted his final episode on Friday, it was only fitting that Ferguson would cap it off with an homage to some of the most inexplicable twists in television history.
Not 24 hours after David Letterman delivered a jittery Top 10 devoted to jihadist death threats did Craig Ferguson, host of the lead-out show he produces, The Late Late Show, receive a "threatening" letter containing white powder. Two staffers at CBS Television City who came into contact with the substance were held in isolation, but were released after a hazardous materials team screened it and found it to be benign. Both the FBI and LAPD are currently investigating the letter, saying only that it originated in Europe.
The lovable Jeffrey Tambor appeared on the Late Late Show last night and immediately noticed that he was wearing the same jacket as the clip from his show he'd brought along. The pair then discussed clothing sizes, shoe sizes, and—why not?—the size of their members.

Last night, the landscape of late night television was changed forever when Sid, a rabbit puppet voiced by Craig Ferguson, met Big T, a human puppet voiced by Trace Adkins, and sparks flew. Love knows no bounds!
