Yeah, having seen this guy's show... he should fuck off.

Everything about his Late Late Show is pretty appealing except for him.

Ah, young and innocent days.

two weeks pass...

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.

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 (five years ago) link

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 (five years ago) link

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 (five years ago) link

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 (five years ago) link

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'.

Read an article recently that said that CBS was considering swapping his timeslot with Colbert's

This is the worst of all possible worlds

"So me and my wife moved into this area, and literally, I've never felt anything like it, this arm went on here and just pushed me out the way. And I looked at him, and he didn't even glance at me and he just moved back into his area. Maybe he's just a bit f***ing rude."

Stewart Lee on James Corden moving to the US:
"Britain's loss is America's loss also."

Don't be so reductive Stewart, when Corden can't stop laughing - America mostly laughs with him.

Maybe interesting to compare James Corden and Dom Joly

Has James Corden fucked off yet? Because he really should.

Wichita prepares for totality (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Thursday, 21 September 2017 05:45 (two years ago) link

I meant something about the way the two men, both on the large side, and both sort of having the largeness as part of their schtick; how they use their largeness in different ways, the kind of comedy they do with it? Dom Joly answering his huge phone very loudly, versus Corden being a Lesbian Vampire Killer.

Never changed username before (cardamon), Thursday, 21 September 2017 21:11 (two years ago) link

would those be vampire killers who happen to be lesbians or people who kill vampire lesbians or lesbian vampires who are also killers

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."

I was agnostic on Corden until the one-two punch of the Spicer pic and the Peter Rabbit trailer. Now he can fuck off.

Hey, more grist for the mill.


“Late Night” host Corden cornered Jeff Bezos, and was heard asking the Amazon founder’s wife, MacKenzie, “So you are the brains in the relationship, then?” Corden later told us of his conversation with billionaire Bezos, “You wouldn’t believe it, but we have a lot in common.”

I don't care about the royal wedding but there are relatives downstairs watching it on TV in the living room. I walked through there earlier and caught a few seconds. There was some guy solemnly playing cello. Then the camera cut to James Corden.
