The late night talk show will say good-bye after 28 years.
February 8, 2023
It is being reported that The Late Late Show will be coming to an end after its current host, James Corden, leaves the show later this year. Corden, who has hosted the late night series since 2015, announced his departure last April.
On the air since 1995, The Late Late Show has also been hosted by Tom Snyder, Craig Kilborn, and Craig Ferguson over the past 28 years. But with Corden leaving, it appears that CBS will be filling the time slot with a different type of show.
Word is that the network will air a new version of '@midnight' at 12:30am. To be executive produced by Stephen Colbert, the show will be a reboot of the improv comedy panel game show that aired on Comedy Central between 2013 and 2017.

It was only watchable depending on the guests. It's strange, because Corden is a better actor than he is a host. It's not like he doesn't have talent.

My 5 year old thinks Corden is funny, that's about it. Ferguson was by far the best and should have gotten The Late Show after Letterman. Colbert is too political and divisive. A one trick pony that isn't funny.

It's disappointing to see this show end after 28 yrs. Refering to Ferguson, he was the equivalent of late night as Norm Macdonald was to weekend update...
Very edgy and didn't really care much!!!
Corden wasn't my favorite but is funny. I hope Reggie gets another gig on tv!!! Didn't like the double guest format. Too many times one celeb I liked and one I didn't (sometimes skipped the parts I didn't care about). It was cool when two actors from the same show or movie were on the same night! Well another time slot I can delete from the auto record list!!

@ChrisW - ferguson's were the ones I saw. The only ones that kept me on the channel when surfing. They were just plain fun. He provided an hour of fun and cool interviews.
@Kerry - Absolute NO on Chelsea. Sure the host Hardwick was snarky, but it was pop-culture, nerd snarky. Chelsea will slip into mean spirited hate-snark. She won't be able to control it as a game show hostess. She will b-and-moan one day and start telling us about pot-trips, ahuyasca, where she wants to be naked.... but more importantly....@midnight is about popculture and celebrating it. Chelsea would slip up and be mean and tear down the format. First people they should interview for the @midnight reboot is patton oswalt, brian poshen, and wil wheaton for substitute teacher days.

Corden has been unwatchable since Covid-19. I will miss Reggie Watts. I was hoping that Chelsea Handler would take over as host. I would stay up to watch her. As a big fan of @midnight, I will stay up for that one too. Chelsea as host maybe?

The panel format works . . . Corden did not. @midnight replacing the show makes sense as CBS is Colbert country now.
I was a big fan of the Craig's.

Fantastic News! This was long overdue. Bye Bye!

Never watched Cordan, not even clips, not a fan of that guy. I'm just here to say woooooooo POINTS! For an @midnight reboot by Colbert! Was super bummed when CC canceled it the first time round, but they kinda dodged a bullet since the drama that quickly ensued with whatshisface made everything he was associated with icky for a good while. We loved the format of @midnight though, and it got a handful of comics a lot of earned attention during its run. Hoping for the best here.

Probably the first cancellation of many where late night shows are concerned. I will be surprised if, in five years, even the Tonight Show has survived. People tuned in to laugh at funny jokes and see the host poke fun at the White House (no matter who was sitting in the Oval). Hosts are too scared to go against Hollywood now, even though Hollywood is the biggest joke there is to make make fun of.
