"Join or Die with Craig Ferguson" will feature the Scottish-born comedian Ferguson debating provocative and timely topics, in his unorthodox and iconoclastic manner, with a panel of guests which will include celebrities and history experts, as well as the American public through social media. Topics will range from: what was the biggest presidential campaign flop; who was the greatest founding father; or which invention was history's greatest game changer. In addition to the debate on the show, Join or Die also will produce extensive digital pieces.

It actually manages to be thought-provoking once or twice per half-hour episode as it assaults its chosen subjects with wisecracks and skewed logic.The New York Times Full Review
Ferguson's new History panel comedy comes across as frustratingly unambitious and under-developed.The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
As Ferguson demonstrated during his late-night stint, he’s very good at being off the cuff in a vaguely naughty, impish sort of way. But Join or Die (on which the host doubles as a producer) doesn’t unleash that gift quite so much as fail to provide it with a coherent framework or structure. As a result, the episodes labor even to fill a half-hour.Variety Full Review
