The Gaffigan 5

The great Craig Ferguson stepped down from the Late Late Show throne on December 19th, 2014. Craig earned the highest ratings for the show and won the 2009 Peabody Award. He explained that he set out to do the show for ten years, and that’s what he did.

Since Ferguson left the show it has been announced that James Corden will take over as the next official host in late march of this year. But until then, a series of guest hosts are filling in which includes big names such as Judd Apatow, Jim Gaffiigan, Regis Philbin, and Will Arnett.

Last night was the last of three nights hosted by Jim Gaffigan (Jan. 19th – Jan. 21st). The first folks you see on the first night was not Gaffigan or his wife, it was all five of his kids (three boys, two girls) for quite the number and introduction. It’s the Gaffigan 5!:

Jim was the host but his kids were featured quite a bit. Here’s his following monologue with his son giving him an honest assessment:


Here they are getting Jim prepared to do the show:

And finally they made pizza with Wolfgang Puck!


I’m wondering if any of these kids will enter show business? Well they got a good start and what seems to be a good couple of parents, only time will tell.
