Craig Ferguson Will Host Shark Week Starting August 1

     June 15, 2010


With Conan off on his live tour (and eventually TBS), Craig Ferguson may have become the undisputed premier funnyman of broadcast late night television — at least in my heart.   Discovery appears to agree, as the network has hired The Late Late Show emcee — who recently moonlighted as Gobber in How to Train Your Dragon — to host the ever popular Shark Week, which kicks off on August 1st this year.

Hit the jump to see the monologue of last night’s Late Late Show in which Ferguson lets Bryan the shark announce the news.
