CBS Late Late Show has become the latest in a growing number of late-night shows that have been forced to halt production due to a confirmed COVID case on the set of the show. In the case of Late afternoon, the diagnosis went straight to the top, with host James Corden announcing on social media that he had tested positive.
“I just tested positive for covid 19 “. Corden wrote on Instagram mail. “I am fully vaccinated, boosted, and because of this I am lucky to say that I feel completely fine.” The host went on to say that the show would be taking a few days off.
News of The Late Late Show pausing comes shortly after a similar situation on NBC, where Seth Meyers announced that Late at night I’d be taking a similar break on Tuesday after he tested positive himself. (Meyers also noted that he felt good, giving a similar thanks to vaccines and boosters, though we can’t help but think that there must be some kind of link science should look for between being a late-night talk show host and having a good time. of it with the disease.)
All this does not go much after Jimmy Fallon announced his own diagnosis, which occurred shortly after Tonight’s show He went on vacation. (Fallon reported “mild symptoms,” so perhaps the secret to complete immunity is being a late host late at night, rather than just taking the first shift each night).we wonder if the nightly hosts had some kind of secret party over the holidays together, breathing their lung gases into each other like some kind of proper white male ritual.
Anyway: James Corden is fine, but you’ll have to wait a few days for your next installment of “Rich TV man throws his mouse at people who are just trying to get to work”, more is worth it.
