Maude and Designing Women to Join Logo; Craig Ferguson to Leave Late Late Show

Maude Designing Women

So then there was Maude. The sitcom will indeed be joining the schedule after it airs its Mother's Day marathon on Sunday, May 11. As of now, it will air in a block format with no set time, just like Logo's other sitcoms as part of their "Sitcom Therapy" line-up. Maude is scheduled to air Tuesday, May 13 from 12pm-4:30pm. Other airtimes after that are to be announced. We also mentioned Designing Women was coming to Logo but then they decided to delay the launch. Now it's on again...as of now. The '80s sitcom will premiere Saturday, May 17 with a marathon from 2pm-12am. Delta Burke, Dixie Carter, Annie Potts, and Jean Smart star in this legendary sitcom about a small interior design firm in Atlanta. Things could as always change, but we will let you know if that happens. For now, get ready for Maude and Designing Women on Logo! Stay tuned for any other updates.


Craig Ferguson

First Letterman, now Ferguson. Craig Ferguson announced that he has decided to step down as host of The Late Late Show in December 2014. Ferguson broke the news yesterday afternoon to his studio audience during the taping of the show, which broadcasts weeknights at 12:37-1:37 AM, ET/PT. Said Ferguson, "CBS and I are not getting divorced, we are 'consciously uncoupling,' but we will still spend holidays together and share custody of the fake horse and robot skeleton, both of whom we love very much." Ferguson has several projects in the works, including hosting Celebrity Name Game, a syndicated game show beginning fall 2014, as well as developing television projects via his Green Mountain West production company.

Since its debut in 2005, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson has won critical acclaim for its unpredictable style and its host's versatility and charm. The Scottish-born actor, writer, director and producer brought a unique approach to late night television, earning the show a Peabody Award in 2009, and an Emmy Award nomination for himself in 2006. The program's signatures include an extended, unscripted monologue and guest interviews noted for their free-wheeling nature. A new host will be named at a later date. Letterman will be replaced by Stephen Colbert, so perhaps another younger skewing host will replace Ferguson. Stay with us.
