CBS Pushes James Corden’s Debut On ‘Late Late Show’ To March 23

CBS said Friday that it would delay James Corden’s debut on its “Late Late Show” by two weeks: His tenure on the wee-hours program will start March 23 instead of March 9.

The later date gives the show’s team more time to prepare and allows CBS to use its broadcast of the NCAA “March Madness” basketball tournament to promote Corden’s debut.

Corden and a new team of producers are expected to open their offices in Los Angeles on January 5 to prepare for the program. Rob Crabbe, a supervising producer at NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” has joined the staff as an executive producer and writer. Mike Gibbons, the co-creator of “Tosh.0” on Comedy Central, will serve as co-executive producer and writer. Sheila Rogers, a supervising producer and talent coordinator on CBS’ “Late Show With David Letterman,” will be a supervising producer. Josie Cliff, who has managed British singer Robbie Williams, was named a producer. Musician and comedian Reggie Watts will be the bandleader for the new program.

The team joins executive producer Ben Winston, who was named to the role in November. CBS said Nick Bernstein would oversee the program as its new vice president of latenight programming, West Coast.
