Craig Ferguson will step down as host of The Late Late Show on December 19, 2014, with James Corden taking over on March 9, 2015. Rather than go on a multi-month break, CBS has tapped a number of guest hosts to fill in, including Judd Apatow, Drew Carey, and…John Mayer???
Drew Carey will bookend the block of special editions when he guest hosts the first week, Monday, Jan. 5 – Friday, Jan. 9, and the final week, Monday, March 2 – Friday, March 6. Other guest hosts will include Judd Apatow, Will Arnett, Wayne Brady, Jim Gaffigan, Billy Gardell, Sean Hayes, Thomas Lennon, John Mayer, and Kunal Nayyar. (Via)
Apparently every woman alive wasn’t available (the ladies from The Talk will “broadcast original after-dark editions from their own set” for a week, but that’s not really the same thing). Unlike Sean Hayes. CBS synergy is the worst synergy.
