"This is premium, quality, drive-time entertainment. It's like Game of Thrones in your car without pictures. Also, given recent events on earth, I wanted to return to a daily show without the restriction of wearing pants or shaving [anywhere]," Ferguson said in a statement. "I look forward to working in an environment that has zero censorship and zero network interference. The melon-farmers at SiriusXM told me to say that."

"Craig Ferguson is a great broadcasting talent with a singular style, and we are thrilled that he is bringing his wit and talents to SiriusXM," added Scott Greenstein, president and chief content officer for SiriusXM. "Throughout his impressive, award-winning career, Craig's irreverent charm has won over millions of Americans, while proving himself a true original. Now with his daily show on SiriusXM, Craig will deliver a completely original comedy show to our national audience, a commitment from a triple-threat talent that we are very excited to launch."
