Ray Romano is going golfing with his wife's gynecologist, but he's doing it for a strategic reason. As he explained it on CBS's “The Late Late Show,” it's always worth the time to make friends with doctors once you're in your 50s or beyond. But Craig Ferguson wasn't so sure about the value in Romano befriending a gynecologist, and he was't alone. When she heard about his scheme, Romano's wife told him, “He can't help you.” See photos: 11 TV Shows Canceled by Controversy – From ‘Honey Boo Boo’ to ‘Politically Incorrect’ But Romano wasn't buying it. “After the first few inches, »

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

23 October 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | 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… »

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.

CBS is likely to use guest hosts on its “Late Late Show” until Corden takes over the chair next spring, according to a person familiar with the matter.
