Craig Ferguson announced on last night’s Late Late Show that he’ll be taking his show to Paris for a week’s worth of shows. He noted that he’ll probably have to temporarily rename his program Le Late Late Show Avec Craig Ferguson.

Ferguson said he’d bring his robot skeleton sidekick Geoff Peterson, plus fave guest Kristen Bell, all “flying coach” over to France. The shows will air the first week in August, he said, “to give us time to fix things.”

Can’t wait. My personal ideal guest list: a French mime, of course; Carla Bruni; Jean-Luc Godard.
