Craig Ferguson doesn’t plan to be in the game show business for more than a decade.
“If you know anything about me, and recent news will confirm it, I don’t want to do anything for 30 years,” he joked with reporters in a teleconference Wednesday to promote his new gig as host of the syndicated CELEBRITY NAME GAME.
“A 10-year run in late night is long enough for me, and 10 years of doing this — if we should be so lucky as to last — is fine. I don’t want to do it forever.”
Reporters were banned from asking any questions about Ferguson’s departure from THE LATE, LATE SHOW on CBS, his newly -named successor James Corden, and frankly anything else that most readers might be interested in.
Ferguson said he hopes CNG — where celebrities help contestants identify famous names based on improvised clues — can set itself apart from other quiz programs by ultimately becoming “a comedy show in which a game is played and money is won.”
Celebrities scheduled to appear on the show include Cox, Arquette, Mario Lopez, Joely Fisher and Ana Gasteyer.
CELEBRITY NAME GAME airs in syndication beginning Monday, September 22.
