Staff WriterCBS has chosen an absolutely amazing performer to replace the irreplaceable Craig Ferguson, and it comes in the form of another eccentric performer from across the pond - the unbelievably talented James Corden. James Corden, who isn't really a household name yet, is set to become the next host of CBS' The Late Late Show next year. Corden has found remarkable fame in his home country of Britain, starring on stage, cinema and television. He won a Tony Award in 2012, and recently found his worldwide breakthrough when he was cast in the leading role of The Baker in the upcoming big-budget Disney adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods. Corden is an amazing choice for the show, as it is clear CBS was thinking right out of the box with this one - much like Corden, Ferguson was a very obscure, almost entirely unknown choice for the show, but his critics soon regretted their preliminary judgements, as Ferguson brought a goofy, surreal charm to late night talk shows and changed the format of what has been a staple of television since its inception. Corden will starting hosting after Craig Ferguson departs the CBS show next year, along with David Letterman who has announced his retirement and will be succeeded by Stephen Colbert. This rapid shift in hosts of a previously very comfortable late night block is very risky on CBS' part, as it can succeed wonderfully or fail miserably. However, I am putting my money on the former, as a combination of America's king of satire being paired up with the charming and funny Corden can only have brilliant results.
