It looks like CBS is down another late-night talk show host, after Craig Ferguson announced during his taping tonight (Monday, April 28) of the Late Late Show that he won’t be renewing his contract past its expiration date this December.

In a statement from the network, Ferguson said “CBS and I are not getting divorced, we are ‘consciously uncoupling,’ but we will still spend holidays together and share custody of the fake horse and robot skeleton, both of whom we love very much.”

Nina Tassler, Chairman of CBS Entertainment spoke about his leaving, saying “During his 10 years as host, Craig has elevated CBS to new creative and competitive heights at 12:30. He infused the broadcast with tremendous energy, unique comedy, insightful interviews and some of the most heartfelt monologues seen on television. [His] versatile talents as a writer, producer, actor and comedian speak to his great days ahead. While we’ll miss Craig and can’t thank him enough for his contributions to both the show and the Network, we respect his decision to move on, and we look forward to celebrating his final broadcasts during the next eight months.”

No word has been given yet as to who might take over hosting duties, but as always keep an eye on 4YE for more information as it comes to light.
