James Corden grapples with how to tackle politics on The Late Late Show
“We never ever avoid politics. Not once,” The Late Late Show host stresses in an interview with The Daily Beast. But Corden acknowledges that he follows "Stephen (Colbert)’s show, which I think it’s safe to say is a very political show," adding: “We talk about it every night on our show. But we also feel like what we don’t want to do is make the same show as everybody else.” Corden doesn't want to be known for being political, especially as a foreigner, but he isn't a Trump fan. “It’s important to remember however disenfranchised you might feel or however disconnected you might feel from each other, the truth is that the majority of this country didn’t vote for Donald Trump to be our president,” he says. “The majority of this country wants greater restrictions on guns. The majority of this country does want America to be a place of hope and joy and love. I really do believe that is the majority of people. I think you’ve always got to remember that. However much your Twitter feed might tell you differently, if you look around there are little patches of miracles happening everywhere.”

James Corden was battling allergies and nearly interrupted the royal wedding
Corden explained his "resting royal wedding face" on The Late Late Show. "The worst part of the ceremony for me was there was flowers everywhere, the most beautiful flowers you’ve ever seen," says Corden, who is a friend of Prince Harry's. "And I get quite bad allergies if I’m in such close proximity to flowers, so for a lot of the ceremony, I just needed to sneeze. Right at the point when the archbishop was saying, ‘If anyone knows of any reason…’ and I was like, ‘Please don’t sneeze. Please don’t sneeze.’" ALSO: Today edged out Good Morning America for the most royal wedding viewers.

Royal Wedding was a tremendous TV experience: "How long has it been since we’ve watched live TV that was this giddy, this besotted?"
"Did we even realize how much we needed this: the predawn escape to Fairy Tale Land, the sneaking out of bed to let indifferent spouses snooze?" says Hank Stuever of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding that was shown live on a number of networks. He adds: "Usually it’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders scowling at us, followed by pundits scowling some more, with TV anchors whose heads shake permanently back and forth in exasperated surrender. Even the awards shows lately have been fraught with careful messaging. But on Saturday, from network to network, coverage of the royal marriage of Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle was technically flawless, surprisingly thoughtful, happily effervescent and unabashedly over the top. The combined force of it briefly created a safe space for dreamers and optimists, whether a viewer opted for the pure dosage of the BBC feed (on PBS and BBC America), or for something more pedestrian."
