'The Late Late Show'
Craig Ferguson is on a roll. Recent episodes of his talk show have seen the comedian interview his robot sidekick, Geoff Peterson, and give another interview in pajamas (could a puppet production number be far behind?) And he'll be doing stand-up in Seattle on Sunday at the Moore Theatre (for an interview with Ferguson, go to www.seattletimes.com/entertainment or see Sunday's NWArts & Life section). It's definitely a "Great Day for America!" Tonight's scheduled guests are Drew Carey, "True Blood's" Rutina Wesley and the musical group the Electric Barbarellas. 12:37 a.m. late Friday/early Saturday on CBS (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
