After James introduces the night's guest, including Cat Power, the gang dives into some of the more iconic single-named musicians, which leads to writer Louis Waymouth recalling the time he got stuck in a conversation with Kanye West and The Edge. And when James shares we will be in repeats next week, CBS Senior Vice President of Late Night Programming (West Coast) Nick Bernstein catches some heat about our summer vacation.

Each week night, THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN throws the ultimate late night after party with a mix of celebrity guests, edgy musical acts, games and sketches. Corden differentiates his show by offering viewers a peek behind-the-scenes into the green room, bringing all of his guests out at once and lending his musical and acting talents to various sketches. Additionally, bandleader Reggie Watts and the house band provide original, improvised music throughout the show. Since Corden took the reigns as host in March 2015, he has quickly become known for generating buzzworthy viral videos, such as Carpool Karaoke."

    Okay, I just got a bit drunk watching this, and I think that maybe I only "liked" the show (before the news music), and although I still enjoy it, the lack of news music tonight is actually pulling me into a physically tormenting depression....

      I miss Steve’s jingle, but honestly, he might be happy by the idea that he doesn’t have to think up something new and amazing each and every day.

    The people need the news music. It is the only reason we swim for 5-20 minutes through this cesspool of inanity. A single note does not provide our needs.

      You know what I love about this show? Reggie unapologetically eating his salad most nights. I hope you never lose that part with your audience back. He's a manly man eating salad not just while working, but while you're taping a public show. I love the hutzpah that takes and I think it's sets a healthy example for nutrition, for masculinity, and for the workplace. Remember the bad old days when salads and quiche were supposed to not be for 'manly men'? What a stupid idea that was.

    James makes fun of congress for having a lot of breaks, then less than a minute later announces that he's on another vacation next week. I was recently watching a clip of Norm Macdonald roasting a heckler in his audience who was a teacher, and he said that she shares the same vacation schedule as a child. It just occurred to me, so does James and his staff.

    Dear James, do not want to be nasty to your co-workers but truth is that the funny guy is you, all this attempt to include rest of staff into joke routine simply does not work. Please reconsider your format as I used to much enjoy your show but not anymore. Sorry staff, do your thing make good music and support James from the background.

    Why are they off for a whole week? Will miss it. Not too happy about the knocking on the door to introduce the guests. It is old and tired and seems forced to be funny or clever. I vote you drop it. I would rather you used the time it takes up to let Reggie and the band perform at the end of the show, which is usually better than the musical act. Ha! As if I have any business giving my two cents. But I am sincere.

    James seems to have a new light in his eye with the audience back. And I just like everyone else love that the crew is still a part of the convologue, love Steve's continued news intros, love Susan's too-chill attitude, love the whole show. Ok tho that story about Kanye West (and the way Louis pronounces Kanye) and The Edge was everything I needed in my life. Let the dick hang loooowwwwwwwwwwwwwww I can not evennnnnnn 😂

      @Jun Wong I feel the same. I feel like, more often then not, James's joke sound like they were coming from the insecure high school mean girl who says asshole things and then is like hahaha jk guys. I love it when Nick fights back because he always makes people laugh and lands the hit. I do feel like he holds back though because he doesn't want to James to get butthurt. Although I'd love to see Nick be ruthless after everything he has put up with. Maybe James can dish it but can't take it.
