NEW YORK — CBS has set March 9 for the debut of James Corden as host of “The Late Late Show.”

Corden is replacing Craig Ferguson, who after a decade in the host chair exits on Dec. 18. The show will continue to originate from Los Angeles.

Corden, a 36-year-old British star, won a Tony Award in 2012 for his role in the play “One Man, Two Guvnors” and appeared in the recent film “Begin Again” with Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo. He hosts a sports-oriented game show in Britain, and also acts in and writes the BBC series “The Wrong Mans.”

His arrival is part of CBS’s late-night overhaul, which also next year will see David Letterman depart the “Late Show” (which airs an hour earlier), to be replaced by Stephen Colbert. —AP
