James Corden's The Wrong Mans to return for Christmas special

19 August 2014 2:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Wrong Mans is to return for a Christmas special later this year.

Co-stars and writers James Corden and Mathew Baynton will reunite for two one-hour specials on BBC Two.

"We're doing one-hour specials for BBC Two that I think will play at Christmas," Corden told Radio Times.

"It was hard working out whether we do a whole new story, or try and pick up where we left off. I think we've found an outcome that we're all happy with."

Dawn French will also return as Corden's mother, while Olivier Award-winning actor Bertie Carvel will appear in a guest role.

"Last year we wrote a character for Dawn French. She's coming back this time, and we've also got Bertie Carvel. He's one of the best actors in the country, so it's brilliant he's agreed to be part of it," Corden added.

The Wrong Mans is centred around council workers Phil and Sam, »

Craig Ferguson in Talks for New Talk Show

15 August 2014 6:52 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

At the end of July, Craig Ferguson told Larry King that he would be willing to do another talk show, but “not right away”. Today, just three and a half months after announcing that he would walk away from his job as the host of CBS’ The Late Late Show after nearly a decade before the end of this year, Craig Ferguson is reportedly in talks to host a new show that will be filmed on his current set. A show that may have a similar tone to the one that he is leaving behind.

Craig Ferguson Closing in on Syndicated Talk Show for Tribune Media

15 August 2014 3:48 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Craig Ferguson is close to locking in his post-”Late, Late Show” gig. Ferguson, who announced earlier this year that he would be stepping down from the CBS late-night show, is closing in on a deal to host a syndicated talk show for Tribune Media, an individual familiar with the situation told TheWrap on Friday. See video: Craig Ferguson Replacement James Corden: Watch His Tony-Winning Performance and Acceptance Speech The show, which would be premiere later in 2015, would air on Tribune Broadcasting stations, a group that includes New York's Wpix, Chicago's Wgn and Los Angeles’ Ktla.

Craig Ferguson close to landing new talk show

15 August 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Craig Ferguson’s retirement might not last long. The exiting CBS late-night host is close to booking a new talk-show gig—only this time in syndication.

The pending deal is for a daily half-hour series that would air in the 7 p.m. hour on Tribune Broadcasting stations, sources confirm. If finalized, the show is expected to launch next year. It’s an unusual time of the day to launch a talk show, yet perhaps that’s part of the draw—less competition than in the afternoon and late-night hours.

Craig Ferguson is eyeing his next TV gig — one that’ll get him to bed at a more reasonable hour.

The Scottish-born comic, who is stepping down at the host of CBS’ The Late Late Show in December 2014, is in final talks to launch a daily, syndicated 7pm talk show that will air on all Tribune Media stations, according to Variety.

Craig Ferguson in Final Negotiations With Tribune for 7 p.m. Syndicated Talkshow (Exclusive)

15 August 2014 1:47 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Craig Ferguson is in final negotiations with Tribune Media to host a daily syndicated half-hour talkshow that would air in the 7 p.m. hour across Tribune Broadcasting’s 42 stations.

The show is targeted to bow in fall 2015. It’s expected that Michael Naidus, exec producer of CBS’ “The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson,” will be on board as showrunner of the show, which will blend comedy and talkshow elements. The intent is to rev up the hour leading into primetime with the Ferguson yakker paired at 7:30 p.m. with a prime sitcom rerun, a la “Two and a Half Men” or “The Big Bang Theory.”

Reps for Tribune Media and Ferguson declined to comment.

Tribune is in talks with distributors to handle national distribution of the show beyond its stations, which reach some 42% of U.S. TV households and cover key top markets including New York (Wpix), L. »

Craig Ferguson Nears Deal for New Talk Show

15 August 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Craig Ferguson did not wait long to line up his next gig. The latest of many swift late-night transitions for 2014 finds the exiting The Late Late Show host nearing a pact for a new syndicated series. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Ferguson is finalizing a deal to host a new talker for Tribune-owned stations. Somewhat surprisingly, the new show will not be part of late night, likely airing at 7:30 p.m. That will alleviate a lot of similar competition for Ferguson, though the earlier start time is relatively untested waters for the format. It will also

Robin Williams: A Man of a Million Voices

13 August 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Yesterday we ran a story on some of Robin Williams’ most under appreciated performances. But as the remembrances keep rolling in and as new, gruesome details about his suicide become apparent, it became clear that Williams didn’t just have depth in his filmography; he was an actor and performer who displayed worlds of expression and moved so many in remarkable and distinct ways.

Rather than ask our staff to rattle off more of their favorites, we asked them to recall Williams’ personality and the legacy his work left on their lives. We’re looking at each side of his many faces as a comedian, a movie star, a voice actor and a true character, offering our final goodbye to a man who gave us so much.

Say what you will about Robin Williams’ quiet, dramatic abilities or his subtle grace notes of acting, but Williams at »

Seth Meyers Weighs in on New Late Night Competition James Corden

12 August 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | Mediaite - TV | See recent Mediaite - TV news »

Seth Meyers has been handily beating his current late night competition Craig Ferguson in the ratings since he debuted on NBC in the 12:35 p.m. slot earlier this year. But come 2015, he will have a new CBS host to contend with. And while that network has not yet confirmed the rumors, it appears that it will be British comedian James Corden. »

Seth Meyers on ‘Late Late Show’ Replacement James Corden: ‘He's Such a Wildly Talented Person’

12 August 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Seth Meyers has a lot to celebrate this month: He's hosting the 66th Emmy Awards and he'll celebrate six months behind NBC's “Late Night” desk. Since taking over from Jimmy Fallon in February, the former “Saturday Night Live” head writer has been regularly beating his competition on ABC and CBS, which will actually see a transition from Craig Ferguson to James Corden in 2015, as TheWrap first reported. Meyers actually knows his upcoming competition “fairly well” — the two both have shows on Hulu: “The Awesomes” for Meyers and “The Wrong Mans” for Corden.

Just minutes after news broke of Robin Williams’ tragic passing, the veteran actor’s former co-stars and admirers came forth with their memories of the late comedian, either via Twitter or statements.

Robin Williams was found dead in California today (Aug. 11) at the age 63. Friends, entertainers, the rest of Hollywood and beyond have take to Twitter to celebrate the comedian's life, to grieve, and to react to his unexpected death. Steven Spielberg's public statement: “Robin was a lightning storm of comic genius and our laughter was the thunder that sustained him. He was a pal and I can’t believe he’s gone.” Garry Marshall's public statement: “Robin was hands-down a comedy genius and one of the most talented performers I have ever worked with in television or film. To lose him so young at the age of 63 is just a tragedy. I will forever be in awe of his timing, his talent and his pure and golden creativity… He was my friend and it is rare that you ever have a friend that is also a genius.” Bob Iger, »

4 Million Reasons James Corden Makes Sense for ‘The Late Late Show’

6 August 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If CBS wanted a white man from the United Kingdom hosting its “Late Late Show,” it could have just stuck with Craig Ferguson. But CBS wants more than just another white man from the United Kingdom. CBS’ selection of James Corden reflects the new realities of late night, in which a viral video in the morning may be worth as much as strong ratings. Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel are competing for a young, online audience not with the old tricks of the trade — monologues, interviews, skits — but with goofy segments that are ready-made for viral consumption.

Let’s Get to Know James Corden, New Host of ‘The Late Late Show’

6 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This will always be the year that David Letterman announced his retirement, paving the way for a million voices to cry out for a female replacement, the eventual instatement of Stephen Colbert as his successor and Chelsea Handler‘s attempt to make a Netflix talk show work. In the middle of all the keruffle, Craig Ferguson announced his own retirement from his own late night show, putting The Late Late Show into its own (albeit less splashy) flux. It was never quite clear what would become of Ferguson’s after-Letterman slot. Would CBS jettison the talk show format? Would they hire a woman? Would they just use it as a depository for old Letterman reruns? We just didn’t know! Well, now we do – The Late Late Show is going to live on, with a new host that, let’s be honest, most Americans have probably never heard of. And, guess »
