CBS late-late night host Craig Ferguson discusses the looming threat of Jimmy Fallon on tonight's edition of "Conversations with Michael Eisner" on CNBC. In the interview, Ferguson says that he's "mostly not worried" about Fallon, who will be taking over for Conan O'Brien on March 2.
"I'll do what I do and see what happens," Ferguson told Eisner. "That's all I can do."
Of Fallon, Ferguson said, "He's a funny guy, he's personable, he's likable, and I think he'll do OK. I think he'll do alright. Am I worried about it? Nah. TV needs people who can talk on camera, so I'll have a job."
"Do I believe that you're not worried about it? I don't totally believe that 100 percent," Eisner responded.
"I don't know if I totally believe that 100 percent! But I mostly am not worried about it," Ferguson said. "In my best moments, I don't worry about it at all. And I think at 4:00 in the morning sometimes, maybe it frightens me.
"Oh no, his cuteness and personability will destroy me!" Ferguson said, simulating a nightmare.
The full interview — along with Eisner's conversations with Stan Lee and Penny Marshall — aired Tuesday at 9PM on CNBC. The show re-airs Sunday, February 22 at 10PM PT on CNBC.

In December, Eisner announced that he would end production of the show in order to focus full-time on his company, Tornante. Tonight's interviews were "in the can" prior to that announcement.
