  • First ever airing here on CBS on duh.

  • We had so many big plans for tonight for the show we were gonna give to you, Um, for obvious reasons, we call give you that show right now.

  • So we thought what we would play tonight is our first ever episode of the late late Show on episode, which, if I think back to it, I'm filled with nerves and excitement on a feeling of when that curtain opened in our walked out for the first time, I didn't know if I was gonna fool flat on my face or if this was all gonna be okay.

  • And I never thought that day that would be here today talking to you.

  • Five years on.

  • And that first episode is also important to us because it makes me think of Tom Hanks, who was our first ever guest on the show.

  • This is the strangest, strangest time.

  • And all we've ever wanted to do on our show is bring you some some light in the dark in the corner of your room every night.
