EXCLUSIVECBS honcho Les Moonves is normally a straight shooter, but he carefully danced around the rumors he's picked a new host of "The Late Late Show."
Moonves and his wife, Julie Chen, were leaving Madeo Tuesday night when our photog grilled him over reports 35-year-old British actor James Corden would be taking the reigns once Craig Ferguson leaves. Reading between the lines the rumors sound .... tru-ish
And our photog asked ... what's the deal with foreigners having a lock on the 12:30 AM timeslot?
Moonves also has a strong opinion about the cast of "The Big Bang Theory" getting a huge raise.
