Craig Kilborn Signs Off 'Late Late Show'

It's curtains for Craig gers.

Craig Kilborn (search) will sign off of "The Late Late Show" (search) after five years in the host seat at the end of tonight's episode.

Joining him will be a handful of his favorite guests over the years, including Vince Vaughn, Will Ferrell, Marlee Matlin, Martin Mull, Adam West and live via satellite from Las Vegas, Wayne Newton.

Kilborn is also planning to include highlights from the past five seasons and pre-taped farewell messages from other guests.

The late night host all but quit the show about two weeks ago when, during what have been described as "very amicable" contract negotiations, he asked for a boat-load of cash from CBS. When the network refused, he resigned.

"The Late Late Show" will air repeats for the next two weeks or so and then line up a bullpen of guest-hosts until a permanent host is found.

"The Late Late Show" producers have said they will approach a short list of potential candidates before making a final decision.

Among the names being bandied about as possible Kilborn replacements are Amy Sedaris (search) ("Strangers with Candy") and comedian Jeffrey Ross.

But producers have stressed that any gossip about who they might be talking to about the job is just rumor.
