....but I have to say I admire the guy. If I can ever manage to stay up late enough to actually watch his show, he might have a new viewer. Did I just stick up for Britney Spears????? Craig Ferguson Refuses To Do Spears Jokes, Talk Show Host Who Battled Alcoholism Takes Heat Off Of "Vulnerable" Pop Star
(CBS/AP) Craig Ferguson decided not to poke fun at Britney Spears, at least for now. Ferguson, host of "The Late Late Show" on CBS, told viewers Monday that after seeing photos of the bald female pop star, he reconsidered making jokes at the expense of the "vulnerable.""Tonight, no Britney Spears jokes. Here's why: The kind of weekend she had, she was checking in and out of rehab, shaving her head, getting tattoos. That's what she was doing this weekend," he said on his show. "This Sunday I was 15 years sober. I didn't do it for anyone else but myself. I did it because it was an act of conscience. I'm amazed that not poking fun of somebody has become a news story." "For me, comedy should have a certain amount of joy in it," Ferguson said. "It should be about attacking the powerful — the politicians, the Trumps, the blowhards — going after them. We shouldn't be attacking the vulnerable."
UPDATE: Here's the link to Ferguson's monologue. Food for thought. Not to mention.... oh dear .... Laurie loves her a Scottish accent. :-x

I can't believe it just dawned on me. Isn't that the guy from the old Drew Carey show?<br /> <br /> I don't watch much TV, do I?
We watch that show every night. He's my favorite late-nighter :)
