James Corden’s Primetime Special Cold Open Trailer Pokes Fun At CBS Brass

James Corden

CBS released opening video of tonight’s The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special 2019 as star James Corden is crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s on a new contract to continue as host/EP of the late-night show.

Corden’s current contract, set to expire at the end of next season, is the original one the Brit signed in 2014, back when he was a relative unknown in this country – and before those Emmy Awards, and before Carpool Karaoke got spun off as a digital franchise in its own right, etc.

Hence, maybe, the cheeky lyrics in tonight’s opening number, inspired by Lizzo hit “Juice”:

-Trying to make a show that’s just as good as SWAT.

-Cool-ass stunts and major stars this show’s gonna cost a ton.

CBS said to keep the budget low, but instead we spent that dough, on a very special show.

-Gonna make a fool of the network CEO,

Super worth it though for our very special show.

The 10 PM special will feature a new Carpool Karaoke segment with Celine Dion, as well as Corden’s fave moments from the past year of Late Late Show.

(Meanwhile, CBS announced earlier this year suspend its search for a new CEO to replace Les Moonves, and keep acting CEO Joseph Ianniello in the role through year’s end.)
