James Corden is saying goodbye to “The Late Late Show” in 2023 … quite the shock since the show has been hugely popular for CBS.
James said the departure has been on his mind for a while, according to Deadline. He always thought he’d do the show for 5 years and then pass the torch to someone else, but he just kept cranking. When he pulls the plug, he’ll have hosted for nearly 9 years.
The show has actually been more successful on YouTube than on the network. His ‘Carpool Karaoke’ with Adele racked up more than 250 million views. The romp with One Direction scored 189 million views. The show’s YouTube page has more than 10 BILLION views with 27 million subscribers.
CBS honchos didn’t let James go without a fight. They were gunning for a 3-year extension on his contract, but Cordon agreed to only one year.
JC says there are things he’d like to accomplish post-exit, like writing. He also gives thanks to his crew for being some of the most talented people he’s ever met.
CBS President and CEO, George Cheeks, is singing Corden’s praises, saying he took TV by storm … and his unique segments like ‘Carpool Karaoke’ and ‘Crosswalk the Musical’ reimagined what the late-night format could bring to a modern audience.
He’s given his staff plenty of heads-up before the show comes to an end — they’ve got around 200 more episodes to knock out before their finale next year.
