HELL FOR KELL BUT CORDEN'S AMERICAN DREAM.
HOLLYWOOD is tough place to crack for any outsider, just ask Piers Morgan and Simon Cowell.
Whether it be a chat show, reality TV or a sitcom, critics in the States act as judge, jury and executioner.
Last week, Kelly Brook's American dream turned in to a very real nightmare when her US debut was lampooned on its launch.
The show, called One Big Happy, was labelled "one big waste of time" by one writer while another, Rob Owen, blasted: "Obvious, dumb and mostly unfunny, One Big Happy is an embarrassment for all involved. One Big Happy won't have a with show happy ending. For all involved, it will be best if it just fails quickly and then quietly disappears."
Anyone with a heart couldn't help feel for Kelly.
On the other hand, James Corden's new The Late, Late Chat Show has won over an army of new fans.
With A-listers Tom Hanks and Mila Kunis as his first guests, he introduced the US to a different form of chat shows where the stars remain on the sofa together, with considerable success.
Not only did he reveal a genuine scoop in discovering Kunis was married to Ashton Kutcher, he had the audience in stitches.
Only time will tell if he will be a success but after watching the first show, he managed to silence the critics and ensure fans were left with the desire to watch him again and again.
