    The "Louie" eps where he was being prepped by Garry Marshall to replace Leno, shadowed by Seinfeld, were uproarious.

    Never happen.

    Ferguson was the worst thing about The Drew Carey Show; in every scene he was in it was like all the air was let out of the baloon. He killed the funny every time.

    Someone hasn't watched Craigyferg do his thing on his own show. His character on Drew Carey was about as far from his actual personality as you can get.

    That someone is not me. And my opinion is he's just as unfunny there. Take the amount of funny in Tom Snyder (original host of that time slot), which admittedly is not all that much, and subtract the amount of funny in Craig Kilborn (next host in that time slot) and you still have a lot more funny.

    Right. We don't even know when or whether Dave is even thinking about leaving. And unlike NBC, CBS does not telegraph when folks are being pushed out <cough> Leno <cough> Ann Curry <cough> Leno again.

    Since I posted I've been trying to think of someone less funny than Ferguson. Josh Gad comes to mind, but really..........................I'll let you know if I ever think of anyone.
