I'm a fan of this show whenever I stay up late enough to watch it. Last night Ferguson spent an hour speaking with Stephen Fry, the wonderful British comedian/actor/writer/memoirist. It was just the two of them talking, no audience, no jokes. Ferguson said he wanted to try an experiment, to go back to the days of Tom Snyder. He didn't mention Dick Cavett, but this show was like Cavett's at its best.
Ferguson constantly decries his lack of education, but this is a very, very smart guy who's obviously done a lot of reading. He and Fry had a wonderful time talking about everything from recent technology--Fry is a consumer of all that's new--to their shared love of America. It was a funny, smart, highly enjoyable program, and I urge people to catch it on a rerun or online.
I was able to see most of the interview online this afternoon and really, really enjoyed it. Most of the time I enjoy Craig Ferguson and the show (usually depends on the guests). I adore Stephen Fry - there's just something about him.
