When Craig Ferguson wanted to take his "Late Late Show" on the road, (so the story goes, anyway) CBS told him he could only bring one other person with him, and it couldn't be shot on a set.
So Ferguson made lemons out of lemonade and went to Paris, France, with his all-time favorite guest, "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" actress Kristen Bell, as well as robotic sidekick "Geoff Peterson."
The result of the trip overseas has been airing all this week. So far, we've seen Ferguson and Bell tour the Eiffel Tower, eat with French action star Jean Reno, and walk the streets of Paris with comedian Eddie Izzard.
"We don't have a studio, we don't have any lighting, but that never stopped us in America and it's not going to stop us here!" Ferguson said while shooting there back in June.
Not only is it a first for a late-night American show to be shot in "The City of Light," but "Le Late Late Show avec Craig Ferguson" has been easily the most memorable (and at times, bizarre) on-location talk show since Conan O'Brien visited Finland five years ago.
It all leads up to Friday night's grand finale, where Ferguson performs at the famous "Moulin Rouge."
Check out a highlight from Monday night's show below, where Ferguson and Bell spy his horse "Secretariat" roaming the streets of Paris.
