James Corden Late Show Has an Unexpected Replacement!

According to insiders who spoke with The Hollywood Reporter, the network plans to replace the venerable Late Late Program franchise with a new season of the humorous panel game show @midnight.

The Late Show host Stephen Colbert is on board as executive producer of the restored series, which ran for 600 episodes on Comedy Central before it was cancelled in August 2017.

The basic-cable network’s @midnight program, which debuted in October 2013, aired Mondays through Thursdays and featured three comedian guests being questioned by host Chris Hardwick about the internet.

@midnight, a Funny or Die production that won two Emmys for creative achievement in interactive media social TV experience during its inaugural run, is not anticipated to involve Hardwick directly in the current season.

In addition to The Late Show, Colbert has also produced Tooning Out the News and Hell of a Week With Charlamagne tha God, both of which are now airing on Comedy Central. In April, Corden revealed he would give up hosting the program in 2023 to go on other endeavors.

His series, noted for interviewing several guests at once and for such enduring parts as “Carpool Karaoke,” which spawned a spinoff series, has yet to get an airdate announcement for its farewell episode.

The Daily Show on Comedy Central is currently without a regular host since Trevor Noah left the show late last year, so this has been a transitional period for late night. Additionally, the seasons of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee on TBS and Desus & Mero on Showtime also ended in 2022.

In January 1995, Tom Snyder, the show’s host, debuted The Late Late Show on CBS with a strictly news-focused format. With following hosts Craig Kilborn, Craig Ferguson, and now Corden, whose version debuted in September 2014, it turned funnier.

On his show in April of last year, Corden said he had always thought of presenting the show as “an experience” that wouldn’t last his entire career. Additionally well-known for his Tony Award-winning acting career, Corden currently stars in the Amazon series Mammals. He said about The Late Late Show:

“I never saw it as my final destination, you know?”

“And I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way. I always want to love making it. And I really think in a year from now that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there.”
