'The Late Late Show with James Corden' is to be brought to the UK and Ireland for the first following a new agreement between Sky and CBS for the exclusive rights to the hit U.S. series. 

From the 19 July, all Sky TV and NOW TV entertainment pass customers can enjoy full episodes of the destination weeknight chat show with host James Corden on demand, one day after its broadcast in the U.S.

In addition, Sky 1 will exclusively broadcast 'The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special on the 19 July featuring Corden's favourite moments from his first year in late night, and highlights from his Carpool Karaoke segments with Adele, Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey.

'The Late Late Show' throws the ultimate late night after party with a mix of celebrity guests from the world of film, TV, music and sports, as well as musical acts, games and sketches. Corden differentiates his show by offering viewers a peek behind-the-scenes into the green room, bringing all of his guests out at once and lending his musical and acting talents to various sketches. Additionally, bandleader Reggie Watts and the house band provide original, improvised music throughout the show.
