Why he didn't want David Letterman's job and his plans for life after late night
Originally posted 09/29/2014 09:30AM
Hosting a late night talk show was never a career goal for Craig Ferguson.
As the comedian prepares to exit The Late Late Show in December, Ferguson, 52, tells PEOPLE he held the gig a lot longer than he expected – and never held out hope that he would replace David Letterman.
"I didn't want it," said Ferguson. "I know it is very hard to get people to believe it. It was never my inclination. I never wanted to be a late night host. I did it because it was fun, entertaining and engaging."

CBS will rely on another European to keep up the laughs in late night.
British actor-comedian James Corden, 36, will take over as the new host of The Late Late Show in 2015, replacing the Scotland-born Craig Ferguson, who announced in April that he'll step down from the late-night show that he's hosted for the past 10 years.
Ferguson's final broadcast will be in December.

Joan Rivers, who died Thursday, got her start on prime-time variety and late-night talk shows in the 1960s, and is especially remembered for her appearances on The Tonight Show.
Once she was introduced on-air in 1965, Rivers routinely visited the program and later would officially fill in as host for Johnny Carson – until she was offered a rival show on Fox, triggering a lifelong freeze-out by Carson. She would not again appear on The Tonight Show for 26 years.

"I do standup comedy called 'An Evening With Jason Alexander and His Hair,'" Alexander explained to Ferguson. "The hair has billing and an agent and I had to wear it on your show."
"It cost a bloody fortune," he added.
