LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Craig Ferguson, who earned his pilot's license last week, says he loves aviation because it's the complete opposite of show business.

The host of CBS' "Late Late Show" says that getting ahead in entertainment means claiming to be able to do anything that's asked. In aviation, Ferguson says, a person has to tell the truth or risk death.

He likes to keep much of his life involved in more "rational areas" than entertainment, Ferguson told reporters Monday at a meeting of the Television Critics Association.

Asked to assess guests he's had on his show, Ferguson says his favorite was Betty White. His least favorite? An actor he declined to name.
