NEW YORK (AP) — Craig Ferguson is taking "The Late Late Show" to the City of Lights.

The host of the CBS talk show has complained in the past that his studio is too dark.

Ferguson announced on Monday's show that he'll travel from that budget-strapped Los Angeles home to tape in Paris the week of June 13-17.

He jokes that "this is the first time in the history of this show that we've been allowed outside."

Kristen Bell will be among the guests joining Ferguson for the episodes dubbed "Le Late Late Show avec Craig Ferguson."

They will be seen the week of Aug. 1. The "Late Late Show" airs weeknights at 12:37 a.m. Eastern.
