Some of the most viewed network television programs each year are those which follow the Super Bowl. Maybe viewers are just too lazy to click the off button on their remote controls or are distracted by discussing the commercials they had just witnessed, but networks usually try to load up after their Super Bowl coverage concludes.
This year, 'The Late, Late Show' airs after the game ends, with a special program being recorded in New Orleans, site of this year's big game. CBS has announced who will be joining host Craig Ferguson that evening and it looks like he is going to have a stacked program.
Steve Carell, Drew Brees (quarterback for the hometown Saints), 'How I Met Your Mother's' Neil Patrick Harris, Julie Chen and Nikki Reed will be appearing with Ferguson when his program airs after the game, from approximately 11:35 p.m. to 12:37 a.m., Eastern time.
The show will broadcast from Jackson Square and will feature segments at historic New Orleans locations, such as Bourbon Street, the Treme District, St. Louis Cemetery and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome (site of the Super Bowl).
Sandwiched in between the game and the 'Late, Late Show' will be an episode of CBS' new drama, ‘Elementary.'
