Craig Ferguson on Million Dollar Password

If you missed Craig Ferguson's appearance on last night's "Million Dollar Password," the full episode is available at It's worth watching, if only for the priceless moment when Craig is given the word "Scotland," and comes up with the clues "Country" and "Fabulous"!

The Florida Sun-Sentinel's Tom Jicha reports, "'Tonight Show' heir Conan O'Brien... was beaten head-to-head recently by Craig Ferguson. The margin was so slight that it's inconsequential, except for the fact that O'Brien will soon be taking on David Letterman, who has vastly superior name recognition, habit viewing and incumbency in the 11:35 p.m. hour going for him... [M]aybe the real rising star in late night is Ferguson, a genuinely unique talent. If Ferguson isn't Letterman's successor-in-waiting, CBS isn't any smarter than the knuckleheads at NBC who took the Tonight Show from Leno." (Here's the CBS press release about Craig's "upward trajectory" in the ratings.)

    Yea, Ferguson was great.
    It made the show worth while, even for the whole hour.

    Craig gets a whole-hearted "around the world and back snap" for his efforts!
