It’s just about time to say goodbye to one of my favorite late night hosts, James Corden.
After almost three decades of The Late Late Show, CBS has decided to scrap the entire thing.
The Late Late Show burst onto the scene way back in 1995, and has since gone through four different hosts — the latest of which being James Corden.
I’m going to be honest, I didn’t even watch the show until James took the helm. He pretty much made the show what it is today.
I mean, Carpool Karaoke has become a household phenomenon, AMRITE?!?
So, who are they getting to fill the shoes of such a slam-dunk of a host?
Who Is Replacing James Corden?
Well, the answer is pretty much no one.
CBS is reportedly going in an entire different direction with their late-night lineup.
According to Deadline, CBS is bringing a Comedy Central reboot to The Late Late Show time slot.
Comedy Central diehards might remember a little show that ran from 2013-2017 called @midnight.
It was a panel-like game show where three guests were pitted against each other in a series of improv games.
Apparently, Stephen Colbert is going to exec produce the reboot of @midnight that is going to take over The Late Late Show time slot.
This would mean Colbert is involved in another hour of television, as his show — The Late Show — currently comes on directly before The Late Late Show.
Now, it’s not clear at the moment exactly what the new @midnight is going to entail, but Chris Hardwick — the original host of the show — is not expected to make a return for the reboot.
I guess, if we have to say goodbye to James Corden, it might be fun to see an entirely new show in the time slot.
