James Corden is taking The Late, Late Night Show by storm with his hilarious bits performed with celebrities. The U.K. comedian is not very well known in the U.S., so he was expecting a “terrible onslaught” of negative criticism. However, the comedian’s quippy shorts and hilarious sketches have made the show a breakout hit. So far, the video shorts have featured the perfect dose of celebrities, hilarity, and relevance to pop culture.
The shorts and sketches are finding continued online success via YouTube and social platforms. The most popular video posted by the show features James Corden with Tom Hanks acting out the entirety of Tom’s filmography. The video has reached over 11 million views and drove 5,331 subscriptions to The Late Late Show with James Corden YouTube channel. That means the video is averaging a new subscription for every 2,114 unique views.
The second most popular video featured on The Late, Late Show’s YouTube channel is titled, “Mariah Carey Carpool Karaoke.” The video is just as the title describes, with James taking a leisurely drive with super star Mariah Carey. This video reached over 4.4 million views and earned the YouTube channel 1,922 new subscriptions. That is an average of one new subscription for every 2,306 views.
