How many women could've ably taken over for departing host Craig Ferguson on CBS's "The Late Late Show"? A lot, according to our count. But as Kathy Griffin alleges, the network never even considered a female host for the job before bringing on British comedian James Corden as Ferguson's replacement. "I was interested in the Ferguson spot long before it was announced because I had a feeling things might shift," Griffin told The Associated Press. "My joke phrase is, 'I can start Monday.'" Except Griffin quickly realized that becoming the first female host of a late-night show on a major network since Joan Rivers' brief run on Fox wouldn't be quite so easy. "They're not considering females at this time," she quotes one executive as saying. Griffin's alleged retort: "You realize that's illegal to say in a business meeting?" "I walk into the (meeting) room thinking, 'I'll give it a shot, »

A few days after the passing of Joan Rivers, the only women to ever host a late-night show on broadcast TV, CBS announced that Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show successor would be yet another white man (and one most Americans hadn't even heard of), James Corden.
Though Kathy Griffin was disappointed in the decision, the comedian says she was far from surprised, especially since she claims that CBS told her they wouldn't even consider women for the gig.

CBS's confirmation earlier this week that it had hired James Corden to replace Craig Ferguson at the “Late Late Show” has comedienne Kathy Griffin fuming. Apparently, she had expressed an interest in the position. “I was interested in the Ferguson spot long before it was announced because I had a feeling things might shift,” Griffin told the AP. “My joke phrase is, ‘I can start Monday.'” Also read: Remembering Joan Rivers: Kathy Griffin, Kelly Osbourne Among Stars Attending New York Funeral In response, she said one unnamed executive told her, “They're not considering females at this time.” Something »

Well, that was anti-climactic.
After a week of waiting for Big Brother‘s highly anticipated Rewind twist to be revealed to the houseguests, Wednesday’s live broadcast featured a whole lot of filler content, yet no real results.
That’s right: No one was evicted, no one was crowned Head of Household (yet) and no one could understand most of what Caleb was saying throughout the hour. But there are still some highlights to discuss, so let’s have at it.

As he rolls to the end of his time as a late night talk show host, Craig Ferguson is starting his tenure as a game show host on Celebrity Name Game – but Jeopardy’s Alex Trebek can be assured the Scottish star won’t be looking to break his record as longest running host in history. “If you know anything about me, and recent news will confirm it, I don’t want to do anything for 30 years,” Ferguson said Wednesday during a telephone press conference. “A ten year run in late night is long enough for me and ten years

Craig Ferguson announced he'd be leaving The Late Late Show back in April, but we hadn't heard much about who'll be replacing him - until this week.

While you may be wondering who the heck this guy is, we're here to fill you in - and tell you that you may have been introduced to him in these recent Into the Woods pictures! Here's what else you need to know about the star and where you may have seen him before. Source: Getty He's one of the stars of Into the Woods.

CBS is tapping the work of Stephen King for programming inspiration again. The network's adaptation of King's novel “Under the Dome” was a welcome summer hit for CBS last year, and it has given a put-pilot order to another King adaptation, this time from Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “Brothers & Sisters”) and Seth Grahame-Smith (“The Hard Times of Rj Berger”). Also read: CBS Confirms James Corden as Craig Ferguson's ‘Late Late Show’ Replacement The one-hour drama project, “The Things They Left Behind,” is based on King's short story and follows an unlikely pair of investigators carrying out the unfinished business of the dead. »

Sure, Craig Ferguson is happy for British comic James Corden, who has officially been tapped as his The Late Late Show successor when he retires at the end of the year. "He's very, very good," Ferguson said on Monday's show, before placing Corden's portrait on the mantel in his set. But later in the show, he commiserated with former Dallas Cowboy Michael Irving, who said he was sort of glad the last time the Cowboys won the Super Bowl was when he was on the team. His reasoning? You want the people to miss the days when you were a part of it.

James Corden has been confirmed as the new host of 'The Late Late Show'. The 'Gavin and Stacey' star is believed to have signed a $5 million-a-year contract to replace Craig Ferguson on the late night Us talk show at the beginning of 2015. The 36-year-old comedian will replace the 52-year-old star following his 10-year stint on the popular CBS programme and described it has an ''honour'' to be taking over the show.

Following the announcement of Craig Ferguson’s departure from The Late Late Show on CBS, a hosting job he has held since 2005, CBS announced today that British comedian and actor James Corden will replace Ferguson.
Like Ferguson, Corden has made a name for himself as a popular performer in the UK, both as an actor on stage and in film and as a TV personality. He won a BAFTA for his work on the British sitcom Gavin & Stacey, and he later won a Tony for Best Actor in the play One Man, Two Guvnors, which premiered in the National Theater in West End London and moved to Broadway in 2011.
American audiences are more likely to recognize Corden as the guitar-playing roommate to Keira Knightley in John Carney’s Begin Again, and he’s also taken up the role of The Baker in Rob Marshall’s eagerly anticipated film adaptation of Into the Woods. »

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said on Monday that his administration is “not going to sit back” when it comes to convincing CBS to keep production of “Late Late Show” in the city.
Although state lawmakers recently approved a bill that more than triples the size of TV and film tax credits, talk shows like “Late Late Show” are not eligible. But Los Angeles could try to devise some other package of incentives.
New York did just that when CBS announced that Stephen Colbert would succeed David Letterman as host of “Late Show.” Instead of a package of production credits, the show received a $15 million package of incentives geared to high tech job creation and the renovation of the Ed Sullivan Theater, »

James Corden is your new Late Late Show host. The Into the Woods actor will take over hosting duties from Craig Ferguson on the CBS late night series. Ferguson, who has been hosting the series since 2005, announced his exit in April 2014, just days after it was announced that Stephen Colbert would take over The Late Show when David Letterman retires. At the time of his announcement, Ferguson stressed it wasn't a Conan O'Brien-Jay Leno or Letterman-Leno situation that previously transpired as late night shows changed hands. "I'll be stepping down at the end of this year in December," Ferguson said. "Then I'll go and do something else, probably. I'm thinking carpentry, but I haven't »
