Craig Ferguson, an ex-The Late Late Show host, has been so much missed since his departure, including stand-up comedy touring and living to tell it. Naturally, when James Corden revealed that his own career would begin in 2023, Twitter was awash with suggestions that Ferguson return.
People enjoy the Cordens Carpool Karaoke segment, but they enjoyed seeing Craigy Ferg and listening to his thick Scottish brogue while he strolled towards the sunset. Could Ferguson, in response to his predecessor''s passing, say he may address both of these requests, one more subtle than the other.
First, let''s look back on what Ferguson said (in 2021) to CBS reviving the show with him in it. At the time, he was very blunt: OK. As long as Im not in it.

With this one important addition, Corden offered his congrats (and praise): Retirement is fantastic. See you at the bingo. In other words, Fergusons has resigned, and he wants to stay that way.
Congratulations to @JKCorden on a wonderful run. Excellent job! Retirement is fantastic. See you at the bingo. Well done, dear friend. Xx

The legion of loyal Craigy Ferg fans will not be detourned, but it''s possible:
What am I hearing here is they can bring Craig Ferguson back?

After Craig Ferguson''s resignation, I remained a fan of #LateLateShow. It''s a long shot, but perhaps @CraigyFerg might return. pic.twitter.com/SKLPOgb4Q1

Possibly, we may as well expect a compromise.

While they transition to a new permanent host, Craig Ferguson should guest host.) https://t.co/vUKPEBbuRQ

Great to be adored! And perhaps better to be adored and keep ones distance. Good luck, ya, Craig Ferguson.
