I also liked the first few episodes of The Late Late show with James Corden. Thought he would bring something different to the genre. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. The more I watched, the more I hated the show. It's just unfunny in my opinion. The monologue is unfunny, the sketches are unfunny, the interviews are mostly cringe worthy.
I wanted to like this because I like Corden as a person, but it seems like he's caved into the demands of CBS to make this show as cookie cutter as possible. I wanted something new and original and was disappointed!
