James Corden is sticking with “The Late Late Show” for a few more years. CBS announced a new agreement with Corden on Monday afternoon, and he will continue his hosting duties through August 2022 on the network. Corden received the most Emmy Award nominations of any individual performer this year, and he originally took over as host of CBS’ late night talk and variety series on March 23, 2015.
“James Corden has burned his way to the top of American television with a daring, energetic and inventive broadcast that stands out in the late night space,” said David Nevins, Chief Creative Officer for the CBS Corporation. “He is a host and performer whose considerable talents shine on every stage, and he has created a cutting-edge comedy factory with shows that have resonated across multiple platforms. James and his shows are a great source of pride to CBS, and it’s exciting to extend our relationship well into the future.”
As we mentioned earlier, 2019 has been a fantastic year for the Late Night host. Corden picked up seven Emmy nominations for his work on The Late Late Show, the “Carpool Karaoke” primetime specials, the “Carpool Karaoke” series for Apple, and The World’s Best. Corden’s latest hit was Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live From Liverpool, which has been streamed nearly 150M times across Facebook and YouTube. If you missed it, the The “Carpool Karaoke” McCartney special repeats tonight, August 19th on CBS.
A few of Corden’s greatest bits are “Carpool Karaoke,” “Crosswalk the Musical,” “Drop the Mic” and “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts.” Since the launch of The Late Late Show, Corden has been nominated 22 times and has received seven Emmys. The show is produced by CBS Television Studios and airs weeknights on CBS. Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe are the executive producers.
