CBS Taps ‘The Talk’ and Guest Hosts To Fill ‘Late Late Show’

Craig Ferguson steps down as host of “The Late Late Show” on CBS on Friday, December 19. James Corden starts his run as master of the show’s ceremonies on March 9. To keep thing spinning in the interim, the network said it would enlist the aid of several celebrity guest-hosts and even give its daytime chatfest “The Talk” a run in the long-running program’s wee-hours slot.

Comedian Drew Carey will hold forth on “The Late Late Show” the week of January 5th – the first after Ferguson’s departure – and then return for another run the week of March 2, just before Corden takes the reins. Other guest hosts will include filmmaker Judd Apatow, actor Will Arnett, comedian Wayne Brady, comedian Jim Gaffigan, comedian Billy Gardell, actor Sean Hayes, comedian Thomas Lennon, musician John Mayer and actor Kunal Nayyar.

CBS’ “The Talk”  will broadcast what the network called “original after-dark editions” from its own set for five days starting Monday, January 12.

CBS said guests and other scheduling information would be revealed at a later date.
