* OldShame: James loves to {{invoked|Trope}} this by bringing up an embarrassing early project/experience of one of his guests and showing a clip or picture (much like Graham Norton, whose show's format is very similar to James'). The reaction of the guest usually elicits an OhCrap moment.

** When the show was simulcast on CBS Radio, "colortinis" was replaced by "simultinis".

* ReTool: This version of the show shakes up the format somewhat by having multiple guests come out and be interviewed together for the duration of the show (a common mechanic of British talk shows), rather than having them come out one at a time and sometimes having the first guest leave (the U.S. standard). Also, the seating arrangement is flipped with James sitting to the left of the screen rather than the right like every other host does. James also pulls his chair right next to the couch rather than interviewing from behind his desk.

* TroubledProduction: [[invoked]] "I smell a good time, ''you'' smell a good time: it's time for Celebrity Noses!" It is purportedly some type of game, but [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZ1f3amS4y1cTOLBfsuKTIoNKbw3C2GWD it promptly goes wrong in various ways]] (such as Reggie having issues getting the theme music right, the intro graphic glitching, James losing the cards, Reggie insisting the segment be broadcast online via Periscope even though it's going to be on TV eventually, "human error" causing intros for other segments to come up instead, and then the backdrop spontaneously catching on fire), then they run out of time and can't even do the segment. The Christmas edition went as far as doing a SmashToBlack after James was repeatedly told by the producer ([[CreatorCameo specifically, Ben Winston, the actual co-executive producer]]) that they were out of time.
** Of course, something eventually going wrong is the point of the sketch, because an actual segment devoted to looking at celebrities' noses is a terrible idea, since one can just go on the Internet, and look at them themselves. But, [[TheUnreveal it is still not completely clear]] [[{{Calvinball}} what Celebrity Noses is actually supposed to involve]].

* RailEnthusiast: The whole joke in the ''Film/FiftyShadesOfGrey'' parody with Creator/JamieDornan is that James's deep secret is his enthusiasm for model trains rather than BDSM.

* PleaseSubscribeToOurChannel: On the June 8, 2016 episode, Corden discusses the policy that CBS must buy any fictitious domain name mentioned on his show so it doesn't get squatted by someone else. In this case, it happened to be [[http://yourmommassagesme.com/ YourMomMassagesMe.com]]. However, with James acknowledging how hilarious it sounded, the producers seized the opportunity by making it a real site where you can upload a picture of yourself and your mom in a photo of a stick figure massaging another. His discussion of it then turned into a ticket plug (suggesting that you should take your mom to a taping, and could possibly be massaged there). Then it turned into a plug for his Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, and then an OverlyLongGag in which Corden listed off every single social networking service or app he is supposedly on.

** Also, one of the writers will play a fictional expert in some field (from science to even gift-wrapping) with the name of a European soccer player (especially those who played in the EnglishPremierLeague) to do a segment towards the end of the show. Unfortunately, Reggie and the band don't stop playing, causing there to be no time left for the segment. This usually results in the "expert" taking their anger out on James, to the point that they storm out of the studio, or James has to call for security.

The current host for the program is English actor-comedian James Corden (who you might remember from ''Series/GavinAndStacey'', ''Series/TheWrongMans'', and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E11TheLodger two]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E12ClosingTime episodes]] of ''Series/DoctorWho''). He is accompanied by musician Reggie Watts and a respective band. From time to time, Corden's family also drops in on the show for some added hijinks.
