The Latest Retirement

Someone else in L.A. is out of a job--and we're not talking about Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who has been "banned for life" from the NBA after making racist comments to his 20-something girlfriend who conveniently leaked them to the media.

Instead, we refer to Craig Ferguson, the host of CBS's Late, Late Show since 2005.  During the taping of Monday's show, Mr. Ferguson announced that he will leave the program at the end of this year. 

Ferguson's departure comes only a few weeks after David Letterman unveiled similar plans, announcing his retirement after 30+ years as a late night host for NBC and CBS. 

"CBS and I are not getting divorced, we are consciously uncoupling," Ferguson said. "But we will still spend holidays together and share custody of the fake horse and robot skeleton, both of whom we love very much."

He told the audience it was his decision to leave, adding, "CBS has been fine with me."
