Stephen Colbert took over as host, executive producer and writer of THE LATE SHOW on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015. The comedy-variety-talk show is broadcast five nights a week from the Ed Sullivan theater in New York.
Following Craig Ferguson's departure, James Corden became host of The Late Late Show, with its celebrity interviews, music and sketches, as well as new features. And of course, it's all hosted by Tony Award winner James Corden.
When Conan O'Brien announced (on January 13, 2010) that he wouldn't continue to host the show if it would be pushed back to another time slot to air, he rather abruptly ended his stint as host of "The Tonight Show". The last episode of The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (2009) aired on January 22nd, 2010. O'Brien remained under contract with NBC until September 1, 2010. See more »
I think Jay Leno's Tonight Show was considerably better. Conan does a decent job on the show, but somehow Leno's style worked better, and Conan's style worked more on his Late Night program. While they can be funny at times, Conan's jokes and routines (with the possible exception of in the year 2000, which I believe has now been renamed in the year 3000) aren't as funny or as clever. Admittedly, it can work sometimes, and his interviewing style is passable, but I prefer Leno and can't wait for Jay's new talk show to debut in the fall. My final verdict:passable. Just barely. His off-beat wit is Conan's saving grace.
