Craig Ferguson Show ‘Join Or Die’

For those that know and those that don't know, you need to know
so watch the Craig Ferguson Show 'Join Or Die!'

~~~~~History has heard the cry and has signed on for 16 episodes of the 
new series “Join or Die With Craig Ferguson.”

The half-hour program follows the “Late Late Show” alum as he debates 
provocative and timely topics in his unorthodox and iconoclastic manner, 
of course with a panel of guests that will include celebrities and historians. 
Viewers will also be allowed to join the conversation through social media. 
Topics will range from the biggest presidential campaign flop and who was the 
greatest founding father to which invention was history’s 
greatest game changer.

“I’m a huge fan of History and what they do,” said Ferguson.
“I’m delighted to be on their schedule and promise that we will have a lot
of fun but we will also stick to the truth.”

While this might sound like perfect fodder for late-night TV ala Comedy 
Central’s “The Nightly Show” or “@midnight,” an airdate and timeslot 
have yet to be determined. (*Note, Series Premiere Thu Feb 18 at 11/10c)

The show’s title is of significance to Ferguson. While it’s more famously known 
as Benjamin Franklin’s 1754 rallying cry to the divided colonists, it’s also 
the tattoo that the Scottish TV host chose to imprint on his forearm after he 
became an American citizen.

“Craig is incredibly knowledgeable, but also has a fun way of getting people
engaged in history,” said Paul Cabana, History’s executive vice president 
and head of programming. “It’s clear this is his passion project and we’re 
looking forward to having him join the network.”

“Join or Die with Craig Ferguson” is produced for History by Comedy 
Dynamics and Green Mountain West, in association with Lionsgate TV. 
Ferguson, Phil Cottone, Brian Volk-Weiss and Jim Biederman serve as 
executive producers. Tim Healy and Matt Ginsburg are executive 
producers for History.
