Craig Ferguson’s The Late Late Show Will Have Rotating Guest Hosts Until James Corden Takes Over

21 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’m still trying to puzzle out why Craig Ferguson’s Late Late Show went to relatively unknown actor James Corden, someone Ferguson himself hadn’t even heard of. But until we see Corden in action in the chair and on stage, I suppose we should withhold judgement until we see whatever it is CBS saw in him. Corden doesn’t take over until March 2015, but Ferguson is leaving before that. But rather than take the show off the air completely, CBS has just announced that The Late Late Show will feature a series of rotating guest hosts who will take over things until Corden officially is in place. There’s no word on who exactly might take over in one of these guest roles, but whoever it is, it will likely either be a just-for-laughs host to try and draw in an audience (Neil Patrick Harris, anyone?) or perhaps someone who is seriously… »

James Corden’s Late Late Show to Debut in March

23 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The new James Corden–hosted version of CBS’s The Late Late Show has a premiere date: The U.K. actor will make his debut as Craig Ferguson’s replacement on March 9, the Eye network just announced. With Ferguson stepping down December 19, Vulture hears CBS will fill most of the three-month gap between his exit and Corden’s debut by having rotating guest-hosts on The Late Late Show. Meanwhile, Corden and CBS have also decided to outsource the job of Late Late Show executive producer to another Brit, hiring Ben Winston, an exec producer of hit music competition show The X Factor, to oversee Corden’s new chatfest. Winston and Corden have worked together before on the Brit Awards and on sketches for charity telethon Red Nose Day. Oh, and Winston directed Corden in the One Direction video for “Best Song Ever.”   »

CBS’ new late-night landscape comes partially into view March 9, when the network will launch a revised “Late Late Show” with new host James Corden that will tape in Los Angeles and be supervised by British producer Ben Winston.

Corden succeeds Craig Ferguson, who has hosted the late night series for the past 10 years, taking the reins from host Craig Kilborn. Ferguson is expected to sign off on December 19, 2014.

Best of Late Night TV: Emma Stone's 'Box of Lies,' Pros and Cons of 'The Walking Dead' (Video)

15 October 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Emma Stone -- always a great talk show guest -- was on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night, and he made her play the classic game, "Box of Lies." Emma said she loves to lip sync, but she's a terrible liar. The audience screamed what number to pick for the first box. Their game was pretty darn short; they should've extended it. Jimmy also showed off some of Emma's old performance photos. The otter photo is really odd, but it's from her very first play. She also talked about her very first musical.

"The Tonight Show" also shared a video on the "Pros and Cons of Watching The Walking Dead. »

Britain's Got Talent Star Has His Story Told in One Chance

7 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Underdog achievement stories, from Breaking Away to Rudy and Kung Fu Panda, are practically defined by the multitude of voices telling the hero that he's not good enough. Such was the real-life case of Paul Potts, the Welsh opera singer with a blue-collar background who blew away the judges of Britain's Got Talent in 2007. In David Frankel's One Chance, Paul is played by James Corden, the comic charmer who portrayed Craig Owens in two funny Doctor Who episodes, now set to take over Craig Ferguson's late-night spot on CBS. The film shoehorns Potts's life story into a familiar underdog template, populating the world with near-mythological threshold guardians who exist to assure the hero that he isn't good enough, including his dad, his teachers, »

Film Review: ‘The Hero of Color City’

2 October 2014 3:57 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cheerfully exhorting imagination, creativity and bravery in children while demonstrating none of those virtues itself, “The Hero of Color City” proves to be a dispiritingly colorless feature-length babysitter. A tale of talking crayons embarking on an adventure of self-actualization in their native land of Color City, the cheaply animated pic plays as if someone pitched the idea “‘Toy Story’ … with crayons!” and decided no further development was needed. Embracing a day-and-date release strategy rarely utilized for kidpics, Magnolia Pictures clearly hopes to cash in on parents too tired or distracted to fully research their home-entertainment options. Nevertheless, returns should be minimal and word of mouth nonexistent.

Lacking any of the visual sophistication customary in contemporary bigscreen toons, “The Hero of Color City” more closely resembles the by-the-numbers smallscreen product churned out overseas to fill time on countless tyke-oriented cable channels. The youngest members of the film’s target audience aren »

Latenight Ratings: NBC’s Fallon, Meyers Easy Winners for Q3; ABC’s Kimmel, ‘Nightline’ Up

25 September 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Tonight Show Starrring Jimmy Fallon” continues to generate strong year-over-year ratings gains for NBC, teaming with “Late Night with Seth Meyers” as the net dominated latenight in the third quarter.

Meanwhile, ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “Nightline” were both on the rise, but young-adult auds turned away from CBS’ lame-duck latenight duo of “Late Show With David Letterman” and “Late, Late Show With Craig Ferguson.”

According to Nielsen estimates for the period of June 30-Sept. 21, NBC’s “Tonight Show” ruled the 11:35 p.m. hour with an average nightly audience of 3.93 million viewers, including 1.49 million adults 18-49. It was up vs. the Jay Leno-hosted “Tonight” of a year ago by 41% in the demo and 13% in overall audience.

ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” ran second in both categories, rising 2% in adults 18-49 (to 727,000) and 11% in total viewers (to 2.34 million). This is the most-watched Q3 ever for Kimmel, whose »
