Source: Craig Ferguson to launch new talk show

FRAZIER MOORE AP Television Writer Published:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Craig Ferguson is close to a deal to launch an early-evening talk show starting in fall 2015.

The outgoing host of CBS' "The Late Late Show" would introduce his half-hour syndicated series on stations in a slot just before prime time.

Ferguson is expected to bring along his robot skeleton "sidekick," Geoff, as well as executive producer Michael Naidus.

Ferguson, who has held a late-night berth on CBS for a decade, will step down in December.
