James Corden is the fourth host for CBS’s Late Late Show as he joined in on March 25th, 2015, succeeding the former host Craig Ferguson. The beloved late-night show became popular because of its carpool karaoke segments with various popular musicians. The show soon becomes immensely popular and made James Corden one of the most popular talk show hosts of the recent past. Even before the show, James Cordon was a popular personality known to the audiences, the Late Late show just gave him a much larger recognition, and now a recent interview suggests he might be planning to put an off switch on the late-night talk show.
James Corden recently sat on an interview and addressed if he desires to continue the late-night talk show and why he feels that home is calling. So here we are, breaking down everything James Corden had to say about the future of The Late Late Show With James Corden.
James Corden’s Views On The Future Of The Late Late Show And His Past Year
James Corden sat with The Sun and talked about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and addressed how it has made him feel homesick more than ever. The Late Late Show host addressed that he has a couple of years to go with the contract, and ending his show will be considered more like a family decision for him than a professional one.
James Corden went on to talk about the people he misses very much and how it makes him feel homesick. The Late Late Show host further stated how he feels like he and his wife, instead of having three children, have three grandchildren who he has taken away from the people. James Corden shared how the pandemic is one of the reasons that has given this thought a strong feeling and made him feel it’s time to return home.
James Corden has talked about returning home a lot during his previous interviews. In one interview from 2018, Corden stated that no one is going to “live forever,” he feels like he is a long way from home, from his wife, children, and cares and misses them deeply and wishes to grow old with them.
If we are honest, James Corden had a few hits and misses of his own during the coronavirus pandemic when he was criticized for his portrayal of a gay man in Netflix’s “The Prom.” Critics and fans dubbed the performance as bland and disgusting. Comedian Eric Andre talked about the mean behavior of another talk show host Ellen DeGeneres by also slamming James Corden in the October of 2020, and this was just two months after he was rumored to be replacing Ellen DeGeneres.
In September, One Direction fumed over The Late Late Show Executive for unseen footage of the carpool karaoke session with the boy band from 2015, which was posted only to be deleted afterward. Also, Carpool Karaoke, which is considered the most popular segment out of The Late Late show, was met with a shock when fans discovered that James Corden doesn’t actually drive throughout the segment via a bystander who spotted the host and Justin Bieber earlier this year roaming on the streets of LA inside a Range Rover.
Apart from all of this, James Corden in 2007 accepted that the success of his breakout show BBC’s Garvin and Stacey went to his head, and he had become this brat because of his sudden rise to fame. He admitted taking therapy and told The New Yorker that it was intoxicating and also believed he was a better person than this.
After evaluating all of these incidents, we can’t blame but admit that even Corden needs to take a break from the show business and go back to his family for a while to thrive in the family’s nature and comeback once again sooner or later.
