CBS has taken the wraps off its plans for “The Late Late Show” during the months between when Craig Ferguson steps down and new host James Corden steps up.
“CBS will broadcast special editions of ‘The Late Late Show’ featuring rotating guest hosts and a special late-night version of ‘The Talk,’ Monday, Jan. 5-Friday, March 6, 2015 (12:37-1:37 AM, ET/PT),” the network said in a press release sent out today.
The list of guest hosts released by CBS — all of whom are men — consists of Judd Apatow, Will Arnett, Wayne Brady, Drew Carey, Jim Gaffigan, Billy Gardell, Sean Hayes, Thomas Lennon, John Mayer and Kunal Nayyar.
Ferguson is making his exit Dec. 19, with British actor Corden set to take over March 9.
