Corden was announced as the show’s new host on September 8, 2014, succeeding Craig Ferguson. Originally scheduled to premiere on March 9, 2015, CBS later pushed back the Premiere to March 23, 2015, so the NCAA basketball tournament could be used to promote Corden’s debut.
In July 2019, CBS announced that Corden’s contract to run the show had been extended until August 2023.
Corden said he was “thrilled and honored” and found it “hugely exciting….to host such a prestigious show. CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler said in a statement that Corden is a warm, charming and original performer whose” diverse range of creative instincts and performance talent” make him a “rare entertainment force.” Tassler cited Corden’s work in such media like theatre, film, and television, and called him “loved and respected” in all of them. The show continues to be produced at CBS Television City in Los Angeles.
The show also uses an interview format similar to that of the British talk show The Graham Norton Show, in which all of the night’s guests appear on stage simultaneously. Guests do not walk on stage from the wings but emerge from the back of the studio and walk through the audience rows. As is more typical British talk shows, the host sits to the left of the guests, a reversal of the traditional American layout. Corden also does not sit behind a desk, unlike other late-night hosts, but in a swivel chair.
