The History Boys is one of the worst films I have ever seen, and this gurning scumbag is very much part of its vile parade.

Saw him on the edition of Buzzcocks which replaced the scheduled Russell Brand one. Didn't make much of an impression on me one way or the other.

Then there was a feature on him in Guardian Weekend in which he seemed a pretty repulsive sort of fellow.

On balance he doesn't annoy me a trillionth as much as Michael fucking McIntyre.

I found his flirting with Germaine Greer on Buzzcocks quite funny. Gavin and Stacey is watchable but a bit too gentle for my tastes.

i recognised his voice pretty much straight away. it did seem stupid to give it to Gervais who has done fuck all this year and his video speech was tired - but G&S was obv going to win an award anyway. the awards show was crap tho, probably poorer for lack of Ross - Deayton, a few early gags aside, fluffed lines and banter a few times and they ran so late they cut to the credits during his final message. also Carrot was really unfunny for someone winning a contribution/achievement award.

like this (slight stress on "this")...
I'm about as useful as a bag of spanners (downwards inflection)...

this show is pretty awful, isn't it? it's obvious that CBS got exactly what they wanted -- a show aping Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show. only lacking Fallon's modestly redeeming qualities of earnestness and awkwardness. the result feels not just dumb but cynical.

corden has no evident rapport with reggie watts, an interesting and talented guy whose role on this show could be assumed by just about anyone (indeed, the best thing about the show is its theme tune). the band giggles on cue when corden makes one of his mirthless quips, but it's evidently forced.

the group discussion seldom pays dividents, since usually the conversation descends to the level of the lowest common denominator (which is often corden himself; witness his embarrassing refusal to talk to michael douglas about anything other than "basic instinct").

i was getting tired of craig ferguson's schtick by the end--and even complained that he was a smart guy who was deliberately playing that down--but boy do i miss him.

on the other hand, i get to sleep earlier these days.

he quipped with heat (amateurist), Friday, 1 May 2015 04:56 (four years ago) Permalink

It's less Jimmy Fallon and more like a dumbed down version of Graham Norton (if that's even possible) for US network late night. I've only watched it 3 or 4 times so far, but he seems to know a lot of really famous people, or really famous people are comfortable around him at least. It's weird.

Maybe when they cancel him, Scott Thompson will finally get looked at for a hosting gig.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 1 May 2015 06:24 (four years ago) Permalink

how are his ratings? even if he isn't doing well, I suspect CBS will probably keep him on for a few years.

one strange thing about the show is that somebody (corden? his producers? CBS?) seems to have decided that they should act as though the show has been around for a while. there's little reflexive acknowledgment that the show is new, segments are unfamiliar, etc. the confidence that reviewers noted seems to add to the show's feeling of slick indifference.

the biggest problem, though, is just corden's witlessness.

he quipped with heat (amateurist), Friday, 1 May 2015 06:46 (four years ago) Permalink

i guess it's just too bad that soon the only laid-back genuine talk show on network late night may be seth fucking meyers. he's a total talentless nonentity--i've yet to meet anyone who has expressed even the slightest bit of enthusiasm for his show. it's soporific. but all the other shows seem to be more "variety show" than "talk show."

he quipped with heat (amateurist), Friday, 1 May 2015 06:48 (four years ago) Permalink

I'm still fond of Fallon, though I appreciated the less formalized Late Night more than I do his Tonight Show. Everything about Seth Meyers' show is awful, though, from the monologue to the band to the scripted bits. Even the set sucks (still, even after a redesign). Come September, Stephen Colbert will be the oldest host with an 11:37 show, but even he seems like more of a gamesman than modern day Letterman. He should be a decent interviewer now that he no longer has to do it in character, though.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 1 May 2015 07:07 (four years ago) Permalink

corden was pretty much loathed over in the uk by everyone except mainstream tv execs (could anyone say they were a fan of this guy?) so here's hoping america completely destroys him. 'mirthless' and lowest common denominator sums him up perfectly, just a dumb hateful guy who doesn't even pay lip service to 'smart'.

Dom Joly answering his huge phone very loudly, versus Corden being a Lesbian Vampire Killer.

Robbie Williams (yes, other punchable cnut, I know) also reclaimed "come and have a go if you think you're hard enough" for Millennium.

And Fat Les (yes, punchable cnuts, I know) to thread.

Seven years after this post, and 20 years after the release, I think it worth noting for the record that ailsa was thinking of one of Lily Allen's dad's pre-Fat-Les contributions, alongside Joe Strummer, to Black Grape's football single "England's Irie."
