Stephen Colbert took over as host, executive producer and writer of THE LATE SHOW on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015. The comedy-variety-talk show is broadcast five nights a week from the Ed Sullivan theater in New York.
Irish comedian Graham Norton hosts his very own chat show which includes him chatting to A-list celebrities, the very famous red chair game, live music and lots of jokes and fun from Graham and the celebrities there self.
Making a satire out of the entire Late Night Show concept Scotsman Craig Ferguson hosts his show with a robot skeleton and a "horse" as his sidekicks. The show features the stereotypical parts of a Late Show, but all in their own, raw way.

Each week night, The Late Late Show with James Corden throws a late-night after-party with a mix of celebrity guests, edgy musical acts, games and sketches. Corden differentiates his show by offering viewers a peek behind the scenes into the green room, bringing all of his guests out at once and lending his musical and acting talents to various sketches. Additionally, bandleader Reggie Watts and the house band provide original, improvised music throughout the show. Since Corden took the reigns as host in March 2015, he has quickly become known for generating buzzworthy viral videos such as Carpool Karaoke.
Not commonly known is that the Carpool Karaoke sketch that became a huge hit on his late show did not actually originate there. Corden attributes the inspiration for this to singer George Michael who on an episode of the UK's "Comic Relief" (2011) joined Corden for an in-car singalong of a medley of Wham! hits like "Baby, I'm You Man". For the debut of Carpool Karaoke on Corden's American Late Late Show, singer Mariah Carey was the first guest to agree to the experience (March 2015). See more »
Don't understand the negative reviews. Show is Great.
The poor reviews of this show must be from folks who watched one segment and made up their mind or have never even watched the show. James Corden is arguably the most talented man in late night and if you watched his show regularly, you would easily agree. So what if he's British. His carpool karaoke segments are frequently hilarious. The comedy segments are smart, well written and just plain funny. The skits he convinces the celebrities to take part in are just classic. His duet with Alanis Morissette with updated lyrics to "Ironic" was a great example. So entertaining and so funny. Same thing with Ellie Goulding, a duet with 8 different musical styles of her song "Love Me Like You Do" in 4 minutes. Lots of fun. Subscribe to his YouTube Channel and give him a chance before you prematurely write him off. He's a true talent and I love his show. In fact, I think he puts the other mainstream cookie cutter late night hosts to shame.
