[ # ] Jay Leno plans on taking over The Late Late Show in 3 months!
March 24th, 2015 under James Corden, Jay Leno, Tom Hanks


Yesterday was the debut of The Late Late Show with James Corden and CBS called in a lot of favors to make sure his opening bit was filled with big named celebrities. The bit explained how he got the job and it was Willy Wonka-esque as in people who were rumored for the position searched for the Golden Ticket. When Chelsea Handler accidentally dropped her chocolate bar, Corden found it and got the Golden Ticket aka job. The Wonka of the segment was Jay Leno and he helped to prep the CBS late night host for his job. When the former Tonight Show host was done with the training, he declared, “In three months, this show will be mine.” It’s not like Leno hasn’t done it before… But I don’t think he would really go for it? Or would he???
Another fun thing the show did last night on CBS at 12:35a was they had guest, Tom Hanks, reenact a lot of his movies with Corden in just under 7 minutes. The only negative is it included a lot of his newer movies, and I forgot how horrible they were. I actually blocked Road to Perdition out of my mind until they brought it up. I also wish they would’ve included two of his most popular TV show appearances, Bosom Buddies and Family Ties. Who didn’t down some Vanilla Extract as kid after they saw him on Family Ties?
When it comes to The Late Late Show with James Corden, it reminded me a lot of Jimmy Kimmel Live’s Oscar specials. Even Kimmel can only do those one night year, so it will be interesting to see how Corden does next week when the thrill of his debut week is over. What did you think of his first show?
