James Corden leaving The Late, Late, Show
Just when we’ve gotten so used to seeing episodes of Carpool Karaoke, and other creative segments on the show, it looks like it’s time to bid farewell.
James Corden the host of “The Late Late Show” has recently announced that he is set to step down from his duties as host of the show.
Corden got emotional while speaking about his decision in his monologue on Thursday night.
“I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way. I always want to love making it. And I really think in a year from now, that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there.”
Corden’s show was home to popular segments such as “Crosswalk the Musical” and “Carpool Karaoke,” which helped the show generate more than a billion YouTube views by having musical guests that would drive and increase viewership as well as prompt talk about the program in spite of its late time slot.
Some of the highlights of the show include a March 2016, episode of Carpool Karaoke primetime special starring Jennifer Lopez, which earned an Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Special. Four months later, Corden filmed an installment of the series with former first lady Michelle Obama at the White House.
James Corden is set to vacate his seat in 2023, bringing to a close what will at that point be an eight-season run.
