Craig's show is the best on TV by far.

Are you a naturally born jerk or did you have to work at it?

Ferguson is the best late night host, but never got the credit he should have.

James is a brilliant actor. From Doctor Who to the Tony Awards he's great in practically everything he does. He's a fantastic choice for the show.
I also not so secretly hope that he keeps Geoff on the show. Best co-host since Ed McMahon.

99% of the potential viewers don't know him.
Fantastic choice? No way in hell!

When Johnny Carson retired, I gave David Letterman and Jay Leno a chance, but decided that neither was my cup of tea. Craig Ferguson was the first late night host I had genuinely enjoyed in years. So I will give James Corden a shot, but I'm not optimistic.

Brits just quite haven't made it on our TV venues : Ferguson, Piers, David Frost, Churchill aptly summed it up: " Americans and British are one people separated only by a common language."

Craig is Scottish and while that may be all the same to you it is offensive to a Scot.
