James Corden announced last night that he’s leaving “The Late Late Show”.  But not for another year.

On the show last night he said, quote, “When I started this journey, it was always going to be just that.  It was going to be a journey, an adventure.  I never saw it as my final destination, you know?

“And I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way.  I always want to love making it.  And I really think in a year from now that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there.”

He added, quote, “We still have a year to go and we are all determined to make this the best year we have ever had making this show.  We are going to go out with a bang.  There is going to be Carpools, and Crosswalks, and sketches and other surprises.”

He also called it the hardest decision he’s ever had to make.
