Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson has made a name for himself by poking fun at celebs making tabloid-esque headlines. However, the British-born comic is choosing his words wisely when discussing the sex blackmail scandal surrounding David Letterman. As the host of the CBS Late Late Show, Craig follows Letterman’s Late Show. Dave also Craig’s boss, since his production company produces the Late Late Show.

Ferguson pointed out his awkward position in Monday’s preshow monologue, asking the audience to “put yourself in my position.”

“The person you work for, the person you admire and respect, is caught in an embarrassing situation. And your job is to be funny about that, whilst trying to keep your own job..So this is my last show,” he joked.
