Sad news for Ferguson fans: his new talk show is not happening.
Variety is reporting that Tribune Broadcasting has ended its attempt at creating a nightly talk show for the host. The half-hour show was going to be designed to air during the early evening starting fall 2015. However, Tribune wasn't able to secure broadcasters and affiliates in important markets. Tribune renewed Ferguson's gameshow “Celebrity Name Game” for a second season earlier this week. Ferguson ended his 10-year run as host of CBS’ “The Late Late Show” in December.
