While some late-night hosts mined the downfall of Leslie Moonves for comedy material, James Corden, host of CBS’s “Late Late Show,” dealt with the situation in a serious manner on Monday’s show.
Deadline reports that Corden followed up his monologue with a brief statement containing no jokes. Corden sat at his desk, looked into the camera and said:
“A late-night host’s job is to come out and make jokes about the news, but sometimes that news isn’t very funny. It’s been a very difficult day here at CBS, but that pales in comparison to how difficult it must be for the many women who are coming forward. They are being listened to, and they are being heard. And it’s only by listening to these stories that we as a society can make sure the corporate culture that has been exposed in this last year or so may never be allowed to return.”
