During the week of May 14, 2012, Duncan appeared as a guest on the late night talk show The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson when the show was taping for a week in Scotland . Duncan was one of the show's most frequent guests, appearing a total of 18 times, and, the day after Duncan's death in September, Ferguson began his show with a tribute to him. In January 2013 during The Late Late Show ' s winter break, reruns of the Scotland episodes were broadcast with a tribute to Duncan at the beginning of each of the five episodes, featuring Duncan on a pink background and the text "In memory of our friend Michael Clarke Duncan."
Promoting this show is a funny thing. There’s an expression on the set: You can’t push a string. The MMA audience and the audience that is going to find this show, they can’t be forced into finding it. They have to kind of find it on their own. I know that a lot of people will be skeptical about this, but I think they’re going to be rewarded with the diligence was taken every single day, every single scene, and all the pre-production to make this show truthful to the fighters that spend their lives dedicated to this sport. But this is not a network procedural, this is not a half-hour comedy, and people will have to find this show organically. It will be rewarding whether you like fighting or you don’t.
