Singer John Mayer, filmmaker Judd Apatow and comic Drew Carey will be among the guest hosts that will fill in on CBS’ The Late Late Show before new host James Corden takes over in March.
The network on Wednesday (Nov. 26) announced its plans for the 12:37 a.m. time slot for the winter months after current host Craig Ferguson leaves. Ferguson’s last show will be Dec. 19.
Carey will host the first week of January and the last week before Corden starts. In between, actors Will Arnett, Wayne Brady, Jim Gaffigan, Billy Gardell, Sean Hayes, Thomas Lennon and Kunal Nayyar will take turns as host. CBS will also air special late-night editions of its daytime chat show The Talk for a week in January.
