James Corden Will Indeed Be Replacing Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show

(via Entertainment Weekly)

A few months ago, there was a rumor that leaked that one James Corden from the UK would be replacing Craig Ferguson as host of The Late Late Show at CBS. There was only one unnamed source and neither CBS, Ferguson, or Corden would confirm the rumor, so we continued to wait for the official word on CBS’ choice.

Well, as of today, CBS has confirmed that Corden will succeed Ferguson as another host from across the pond of The Late Late Show starting some time after Ferguson leaves in December and heads for his syndicated 7PM show through Tribute Media.

So, 2015’s CBS late night line-up will be The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show with James Corden, which will be probably the most intriguing move in late night in the last few years.
