Critic Reviews for The Late Late Show With James Corden Season 1

Like Fallon, Corden is willing to play alongside a major star without overshadowing or underplaying. He was game, and it was catchy.

Corden bears an odd resemblance to a golden retriever-friendly, approachable, and desperately eager to please.

Reggie Watts needs to be Reggie Watts. We got a taste of Watts last night, but "Late Late Show" appears to be holding him back a bit.

Corden is a talent worth watching for his sheer likability, musical and comedy talent, and genuine love of culture, pop and otherwise.

Judging from his first show, which isn't always the wisest thing to do, Corden seems to be from the school that feels it's better to close the day with a good glass of wine than tequila shots.

On his very first show, James Corden demonstrated not only what he could do well, but what he planned to do differently. He's an enticing edition to what already is a dizzying season of change in late-night TV.

Corden did a terrific job of showcasing all his talents, including singing a ballad at the end of this first night. He's well on his way to being a nightly crowd-pleaser whom you may be talking about the next day.

When a late-night TV show host is so overcome with emotion during his opening monologue that he cries, it is incredibly endearing. And certainly indicative of how much late-night has changed.

James Corden's first time hosting The Late Late Show went pretty well, all things considered.

Mar 27, 2019 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

Corden came off as charming and unexpectedly earnest for a late-night host - tearing up when thanking his parents in the audience, and again looking a tad misty-eyed during a silly little "thank you" ballad with which he closed the show.

Mar 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Corden puts a gleeful new face to this established show, and his enthusiasm is infectious for those who watch.

Mar 27, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

By the time Corden sang a wry little tune thanking us for watching, he seemed as comforting as a cup of tea and a biscuit.

    Corden really grinds on you. He's like a used car salesman without the charisma and I have no idea how he's became as successful as he is

    I don't even have to know who the guests are to enjoy the episodes. James Corden could sit there alone and talk for the whole show about nothing in particular and it would still be one of the most amusing shows on TV.
