It's a not so great day for America, everybody.

Today, it was announced that Craig Ferguson would be leaving The Late Late Show sometime in December. To be honest, I’m sort of happy this is happening, and here’s why.
Back in the summer of 2011, that’s when I first started my love of David Letterman. I was looking back at his old Late Night things, and was really getting into Late Show, even though it was no where near as funny as his old stuff. But then, after the show was over, one night I decided to stay on CBS to see what the show was like. Instantly, I was hooked. It just felt different from everything else on TV, especially with Craig’s gay talking skeleton robot Geoff, which back when he only said about 5 different things was hilarious. The moments when Secretariat would come in and everyone in the studio went crazy were amazing, and it honestly had me laughing out loud, which I don’t do all that often with TV shows now-a-days. Craig just seemed to have fun doing the show. That and the fact that Craig would constantly talk about how crappy his studio was, with the leaks and power outages, all around, it was wonderful.
Then, something happened around the time Craig got his new studio. Geoff now speaks in full sentences, which is just not as funny, and it just seems now Craig isn’t having all that much fun with the show. I don’t know if it’s just me, but he just seems to be there because he has to. Now that CBS decided to not move him up to 11:35, to me, it feels right that he wants to retire. Nine years is a long time, and he’s done some genuinely great episodes of the show. Thanks for all the laughs, Craig.
Television is sure going to suck a lot more after December. Really, the only late night shows to watch, in my opinion, are Jimmy Kimmel and Conan. I’m really kind of worried about Colbert taking over. Oh well, at least there’s the internet.
