The Late Late Show is about to go through some major changes.
When Craig Ferguson steps down as host of the CBS late night talk show (his final show is scheduled to air Dec. 19), a whole roster of celebs are going to step in as guest hosts until Into the Woods and Begin Again star James Corden takes over hosting duties full-time beginning March 19, 2015.
CBS announced the list of celebrity guest hosts today, and kicking off the nine weeks of new hosts is none other than Drew Carey!
The Price Is Right host will start and end the nine weeks by hosting Jan. 5-9 and March 2-6.
So who else is taking the reins of The Late Late Show in between Carey's weeks?
Director Judd Apatow, singer John Mayer, Will Arnett, The Big Bang Theory's Kunal Nayyar, Whose Line Is It Anyway's Wayne Brady, Jim Gaffigan, Billy Gardell, Sean Hayes and Thomas Lennon will all have a turn in the host seat. CBS will announce their hosting dates soon.
Lamenting the lack of ladies names on that roster of guest hosts?
Here's some exciting news: CBS will air a special late-night edition of The Talk with Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood for the week of Jan. 12-16. While it's not a permanent late-night lady host, it's better than nothing, right?
