CBS’ Late-Night Show Finally Gets the Ax After Almost 30 Years, Replacement Announced

Published on

The three-decade history of “The Late Late Show” on CBS will come to an end after the network chose not to replace current presenter James Corden.

Deadline reported on Tuesday that the network had canceled the program in its entirety due to the host’s intention to leave in the summer.

Tom Snyder, former presenter of the NBC late-night program “Tomorrow,” presented the show when it premiered in January 1995.

The initial host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Craig Kilborn, took over in 1999 and spent five years behind the CBS desk.

Scottish comedian Craig Ferguson hosted the show from 2004 until Corden seized the reigns in 2015.

According to Deadline, the show will likely be replaced with a reincarnation of the old Comedy Central panel show “@midnight” created by Stephen Colbert.

The network terminated the Chris Hardwick-hosted program in 2017 after four years on the air.

Hardwick is not likely to return as host if “@midnight” replaces “The Late Late Show” in the future.

Last year, Corden declared that the current season will be his final.

The British comedy actor stated that leaving was not an easy decision, but it was the best one for his family.

Last month, he told daytime television star Drew Barrymore, “I mean, I’ll never work in a better environment than the one I work in now,”

More on this story via The Western Journal:

“Nothing about leaving the show was to do with not enjoying it,” Corden said. “I love it, but the truth is it became a very easy decision because I always knew it was an adventure and I never, ever considered it to be the final destination.”

His final “Late Late Show” will air later this year. CONTINUE READING…
