The Late Late Show redesigns set for safety

The Late Late Show with James Corden has redesigned its set to enable Corden to return to the studio  after five months filming in his garage.

Deadline reports the sofa has been replaced by one chair positioned in front of a screen, presumably for Zoom chats. The audience seats have similarly been removed and things have been spaced out to allow staff and crew to more safely socially distance.

“We are so excited to be back in our new look set on Studio 56 at Television City and cannot wait to be making new shows staring Monday. There is nothing more important to us than the health and safety of our team, so seeing our crew safely back together again has been worth all the work and planning to get us to this point,” said producers Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe.


  1. Any one else see Corden’s late night show last night-can’t see it lasting as it just doesn’t work in a large studio space with no audience there-Colbert fares a lot better but still a struggle-also surprises me how poor many of the outside feeds for interviews and performances have been over the last few months-these are rich folks but with poor internet or computer stuff!

  2. These sort of shows really, really need a live studio audience in a large space-remember Colbert in an empty Ed Sullivan Theater? ‘The Horror, the Horror…’ Colbert manages his remote show reasonably well but isolation is getting to him and his hair!
