    This is the new funny... but, it's been done so many times before it is redundant to me... it is new to millennials, so there you go.

    James Corden, have some respect!! I bet you don't even now what Hallelujah means! By the way, you are not funny, not tonight, not last night and not last year, not ever.
    For your information.
    God be praised (uttered in worship or as an expression of rejoicing).
    an utterance of the word ‘hallelujah’ as an expression of worship or rejoicing.

    And stupid crap like this is why I don't watch Late Night anymore. Everyone of the shows is just plain stupid. Letterman was bad, but he would rate as a gifted genius compared to the shows today!

    • Jaycee C

      Couldn't agree more. This james guy is NOT funny, not even one little bit. Can't stand him. I haven't watched his show in months, saw it about 3 and each time I couldn't see what the audience thought was so funny.
      He's not even American yet thinks he has the right to criticize the President, I don't care who the president is but it seems on every opening of his show, he first walks out pigeon toed, suit too tight and them starts making fun of Trump, what a boring little man he is.
      Not to mention the shows final act, some group or one person singing, he's such a fake, all over the singers acting or should say pretending that they are the best he's ever heard.
      Did I say I can stand him? lol.

    Thats what these tonight shows should be about and that's entertainment and leave it at that . keep your [political opinions and bias to your self. That way you can keep all of your audience instead of dividing them in two.

    • Jaycee C
      Jaycee C 2 days ago

      Exactly, I bet his viewers and audience numbers went right down after he decided to talk politics at the beginning of each show. What an idiot, just like the sheep he is, Hollywood don't like Trump, or most of them don't, so he tries to be like them. Fastest way too lose fans is to give your opinion on politics.

    Hi James!!!!!!!! I just wanna say I love your show very much and I wish you all the best, but plz plz plz return
    to Jesus Christ!!!!!!! Well typical Christian I am (trying to turn someone back to Jesus) but truly if you open your heart, you will truly met Jesus Christ!!!!!!! Really, it's hard because God isn't there physically so we lose faith and have our doubts but really if you read the Bible everyday and ask for guidance God will lead the way.... and truly amazing miracles will happen!!!!!!! Like literally just half a year ago I was thinking of giving up Christianity but seriously I decided that I would ask for God's help and now half a year later, I really have met Jesus multiple times and how I look at this world has completely changed!!!!! Really there is soooo much spiritual warfare going on this very moment so plz turn back to Jesus and truly I just pray that you will be able to met Him!!!!!

    .........criticize me all u want guys..... cause like this random religious stranger is blabbing on about some religious content but.....yeah that's all I have to say and whoever reads this comment I hope that you will get the chance to met Jesus Christ as well!!!!!!!
