Brit James Corden has made his debut as host of The Late Late Show in the US, replacing Craig Ferguson.
According to early reviews, he has gone over well.
“He comes without almost any snark,” noted the Hollywood Reporter. “Corden doesn’t put a layer of cool between him and the viewer (or his guests) – he’s as affable and sincere as Fallon, with just a little less goofiness. It’s a welcome trait.”
“CBS deserves credit for taking a flyer on a promising if unorthodox choice,” Variety reported, who viewed the premiere as being “slightly uneven with moments of inspired lunacy and some clear areas for the newbie host to work on”.
The New York Daily News found Corden as “from the school that feels it’s better to close the day with a good glass of wine than tequila shots”.
A number of readers have been asked when TEN will launch the show but the network spokesperson told TV Tonight no date has yet been confirmed.
