[9.50 - French Time] Curious experience for The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS yesterday, with host Craig Ferguson breaking his format for a very special guest.

No cold open, no puppets (we have discussed of the puppets here), no intro song, no monologue and no "audience machine" with members of his "Robot skeleton army" (as Ferguson calls his followers on Twitter). Instead, Craig Ferguson on the Charlie Rose territory in a taped interview of one of the most illustrious British citizens: comedian, actor, presenter and Renaissance man Stephen Fry.

Maybe The Tonight Show on NBC could do a one-on-one with Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien. And Jimmy Kimmel could lend Guillermo, the security guard of his ABC show, for the event.
