Per a press release from CBS, Jay Leno will be the final guest on Craig Ferguson's "Late Late Show" on Friday, Dec. 19. It was previously announced that Ferguson would step down from the show in December, with comedian James Corden named his successor as host. Corden, who recently starred in John Carney's "Begin Again," will take the reins in March, with a series of guest hosts filling in until then. That is, unless Leno just gets behind the desk and declares it his show now.
