[ # ] James Corden will have a lot more time to make movie musicals

If you thought that James Corden was in every movie musical that has come out in the last decade, then I have some bad news for you. He is going to have a lot of extra time to star in as many as he can starting a year from now. That is because he is leaving The Late Late Show next Spring.

“It’s been it’s a really hard decision to leave because I’m so immensely proud of the show. I’m thrilled to be extending [for a year],” Corden told Deadline. “I always thought I’d do it for five years and then leave and then I stayed on. I’ve really been thinking about it for a long time, thinking whether there might be one more adventure.”

It will be interesting to see if CBS will replace him or do something else with the hour. They might even opt for it to be paid programming or repeats.

Personally, I think they will give that hour back to the affiliates unless talk shows have a renaissance in the next year. So many got canceled this year because of the cost of the pandemic and lower ratings. So I really wouldn’t be surprised if they opt to cut their losses with this hour of broadcast.

I hope they continue to do a talk show because they are becoming a dying breed. But I would not be surprised if they don’t.

I just think they are not going to want to invest in promoting someone new as the host of The Late Late Show. It is going to cost a lot of money, and it is going to take a long to get it back. Unless they go with a big name, but would that person want to do a talk show at 12:35a every weeknight? Time will tell.

Will you miss Corden, or are you like buh-bye?
