Metallica will be adding a hefty dose of metal to the late-night TV lineup next month.  They've booked a week-long stint on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" starting Monday, November 17th.  They'll kick things off by sitting down for an interview with the Scottish comedian, and then they plan to perform a song on the CBS show every night that week. 

Drummer Lars Ulrich tells Rolling Stone they couldn't think of a better way to celebrate Ferguson's "awesome tenure" on "The Late Late Show" than coming by to "shake the rafters." 

Craig announced earlier this year that he'll be stepping down from the CBS gig after ten years.  His final show will air in December, and British comedian James Corden is set to take over in March. 

Ulrich says Metallica is hanging out at "The Late Late Show" purely at Ferguson's personal request.  And while he says they really have nothing to sell or promote, he notes that the visit does coincide with the release of the tenth anniversary edition of Some Kind of Monster. The updated version of Metallica's 2004 documentary is due out November 24th.
