Craig Ferguson (and his show) goes home to Scotland

After last year's week of shows from Paris, you just knew Craig Ferguson wouldn't stop there.

"The Late Late Show," the only late night talk show to travel abroad (for multiple shows, anyway) will visit Ferguson's homeland of Scotland starting the week of May 14.

The last trip included appearances by Kristen Bell, Eddie Izzard and Jean Reno, and even more stars will pop up this time.

Mila Kunis, Michael Clarke Duncan and Rashida Jones of "Parks and Recreation" will accompany Ferguson as he rediscovers his roots.

Ferguson reportedly told Jones, "This whole trip to Scotland, I can’t tell you how lovely it is – how great the people are, how beautiful the towns are. I’m shocked – my memory is completely wrong."

Check out a music video preview of the "Late Late Show's" week in Scotland. From the look of things, fans of Geoff the robot and Secretariat the horse won't be disappointed.

    My fiance dreams of going to Scotland. Neither of us have ever been to Europe before but we are going to start saving a little each month to make his dream come true some day. The pictures I've seen from there are gorgeous!

    Hope he stays there. I can't understand him anyway. Fallon is way better, for Late, Late TV.

    "Mila Kunis, Michael Clarke Duncan and Rashida Jones of "Parks and Recreation" will accompany Ferguson as he rediscovers his roots."

    Actually, that third companion of Craig's is the adorable Ariel Tweto from "Flying Wild Alaska".

    Given your harsh tone and insults, you're likely fat and ugly! Take it's not like he's lining your pockets with green......defend your mother that way but not a stranger. Get off the sofa every now and seem to know way too much about his show!

    We have enough foreigners taking American jobs....this one should just stay in Scotland and have Piers Morgan return too. What a shame that we could not find another American to follow the iconic Larry King!

      Perhaps you are unaware that Craig Ferguson is a naturalized American citizen now and not a 'foreigner taking American jobs'.

      Moron. Ferguson is one of the funniest people on TV, and you don't even need cable or satellite to watch in many areas. Do you really think one foreigner is going to bring America to its knees with one job? I'd be more worried about it being run by idiots like you and the idiots you likely vote for. Besides, Ferguson's show employrs plenty of Americans.
