Craig Ferguson will sign off of “The Late, Late Show” for the last time on Friday, ending a 10-year run hosting the CBS show.

Ferguson’s leave-taking has been overshadowed by Stephen Colbert moving in to replace David Letterman. But the “kinetic Scottish cutup” still has a loyal following of fans who are going to miss his late-night presence, The Associated Press said.

Ferguson announced in April he would leave the show, telling viewers, “CBS and I are not getting divorced, we are consciously uncoupling,” a riff on the terminology used by Gwyneth Paltrow when she and husband Chris Martin split.

"The Late Late Show" dropped in ratings, particularly up against Seth Meyers on "Late Night."

Ferguson will be replaced in March by James Corden, a British comedian and actor.



Celebrities have been pre-mourning Ferguson’s departure, as have fans.







NPR reported on Colbert and Ferguson leaving their shows, and pointed out that both were rule breakers in the late-night world.

“Ferguson built a show that often played like an impish inside joke, poking fun at the ubiquitous talk show sidekick by having a robot skeleton sidekick built and naming it Geoff Peterson,” NPR wrote.
