(LOS ANGELES) — Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson is reportedly in talks with Tribune Media to do a syndicated half-hour comedy/talk show.
According to Deadline.com, the show would tentatively start in fall 2016 and would be shot in Los Angeles.
Ferguson plans to take his robot skeleton sidekick, Geoff Peterson, with him — in addition to his longtime showrunner Michael Naidus. His new show would air across Tribune’s 42-station network, likely in a 7:30 p.m. slot.
The comedian is set to end his hosting duties on CBS’ Late Late Show in December. British actor-comedian James Corden is reportedly being considered as his replacement.
Ferguson will also host a syndicated game show, Celebrity Name Game, this fall.
