During James Corden's long time as host, "The Late Late Show" onCBS could not afford 'The Late Late Show With James Corden'. Cordon, a British comedian whose "Carpool Karaoke" skits made him a huge star, left "The Late Late Show" last week after eight years as the show host.
According to the Los Angeles Magazine, the show "netted less than $45 million" compared to the $60 million to $65 million it cost to make each year. The sources also said that Corden would have "faced a multimillion-dollar pay cut or painful staff reductions or both" if the show had kept him as its star.

James Corden Bids Farewell to 'The Late Late Show'

The last episode of "The Late Late Show" played on April 27 after 28 years. The show may have been canceled because it wasn't making as much money as it used to. Corden was in charge of the show's final episode last Thursday, which was full of famous people. Actor Tom Cruise was there, and the last episode of "Carpool Karaoke" was with singer Adele. Will Ferrell and Harry Styles were the last guests? CBS is ending production of "The Late Late Show" after almost 30 years.
The last show of "The Late Late Show with James Corden" aired on April 27. 1.43 million people watched it, which is a lot. At 10 p.m., a special edition of the popular Carpool Karaoke segment was shown on "The Late Late Show," which brought in 3.65 million people. Compared to their last primetime special, which played in May 2019 and was watched by 2.77 million people, that number was a big jump.
Brian Stelter of Los Angeles Magazine was told by sources that the late-night show, which James Corden has been hosting since 2015, costs between $60 million and $65 million to make every year but only makes less than $45 million.
Corden said he would stop being a show in April 2022, but at the time, it wasn't clear if the Late Late Show would still be on the air. The story also said that CBS executives had tried hard to keep him on and had offered him several contract extensions that he turned down. Corden told the outlet at the time:
My bosses here at CBS have been incredibly supportive and extraordinarily patient with me while I made this decision.- James Corden
We wish he could stay longer, but we are very proud that he made CBS his home in America and that this partnership will continue for one more season on 'The Late Late Show.- CBS CEO George Cheeks
Since Corden has been in charge, the show has been nominated for 12 Emmys and won the Outstanding Interactive Program award in 2019. Some of the most popular parts of the show were "Carpool Karaoke" and "Spill Your Guts," in which famous people had to tell the truth or try new foods.
When it started in 1995, "The Late Late Show" was very different from the show that Corden now hosts. When Tom Snyder was in charge, the show was more serious, but when Snyder left in 1999 and Craig Kilborn took over, the show became funnier. In 2015, Craig Ferguson took over from Kilborn, and in 2015, Corden took over from Ferguson.
