Who here loves numbers?! We know you do!!
We could tell you how amazing James Corden was in his debut as the new host of CBS‘ The Late Late Show, but we’d rather toss numbers around!
His debut show scored a metered market 1.4/5! That’s up 27% from the same night last year, which was a shameful 1.1/4.
Corden even ended up beating out Seth Meyers, who had a 1.2/4!
Though he couldn’t beat previous host Craig Ferguson‘s debut numbers from January 3, 2005 which came in at 1.6/6!
Ferguson must be rolling in his grave… with laughter! His hilarious, Scottish laughter. Because he had a higher debut but also because he’s not dead. LOLz!
Basically, producers at CBS did everything they could to make sure people knew who Corden was, so they’d be more likely to tune in!
We guess all their advertising paid off, because Corden beat Seth Meyers! Congrats, Corden! Sorry, Seth — we still love you!
