Late Late Show Highlights
Last night was the premiere of The Late Late Show with James Corden. Overall I thought it was a good first episode. James did a nice job, and I think he’s going to be a fine host once he gets into a grove. The set will take some getting used to; it has a bar for goodness’ sake, and there are lamps in the audience section, among other things. LLS made some formatting choices that I’m not crazy about, specifically around the guest segments, but we’ll see if those stick around or I just get used to them.
Here’s the link to the episode on the CBS website. If you have the time I suggest watching it. It’s always interesting to see the first show of anything, if for no other reason than to revisit it years later and see how it’s changed. If you don’t have time for the whole thing, then here is most of it in clips. I highly recommend “James Corden’s Golden Ticket,” “Every Tom Hanks Movie in 8 Minutes” and “James Corden’s Late Night Ballad.” They were very entertaining.
Again, good show. I give it:
