    James Corden will make his debut as host of iconic US chat show The Late Late Show tonight – amid nervousness at channel CBS that American audiences may fail to ‘get’ the British comedian.

    After 10 weeks of rehearsals and training – in which producers have reportedly been desperately trying to stop Corden using British slang phrases that the U.S. does not use – the opening show will air tonight with guests Mila Kunis and Tom Hanks.

    As well as fears over how Corden is received by his US audience, there have also been reports than American celebrities have been put off by his decision to adopt a Graham Norton-style chat show in which guests appear together on the same sofa instead of one after the other.

    I heard about 15 seconds of it this morning on the radio where he was talking to Mila Kunis and I wanted to shove a screwdriver thru my ear.

    Haven't watched any late evening talk shows in over a decade and a half (except for the very occasional brief pause while channel surfing). I don't see this guy making me change that.

    Tame jokes and bits, and chock-a-block full of commercials -- I'll pass.

    It's such a big risk to have all these various shitheads sit on the same couch. Like they're fucking untouchables who dare not stray from the script.

    Given that it's all but impossible to find a late night host these days who isn't a shithead, I don't see myself getting too wrapped up over the British part.

    Letterman makes a lot of money for CBS. It's life or death for Les Moonbeams.

    James Corden is a very funny comedian and actor. Check out this British comedy series "The Wrong Mans" to get an idea of why CBS is taking a chance on him :bounce:
