GREAT FALLS -- The new CBS "The Late, Late Show with James Corden debuted on Monday night, featuring Great Falls High School alum Reggie Watts as the bandleader and sidekick to the British-born Corden. 

Watts is a 1990 graduate of Great Falls High School and often visits his hometown. 

He is known for his creative musical talent and humor, and has been featured as a performer on other late night talk shows. 

For the past four years, he has co-starred on IFC's "Comedy Bang Bang." 

In 2013, he returned for an event at the University of Great Falls, and told KRTV, "I learned all my music here, I learned piano, I played violin, I did orchestra, I did drama...Great Falls really is a big part of who I am, and I am really proud to be from Great Falls, Montana."

Corden kicked off his inaugural show with by saying thank you to several people who helped launch the program, and he started with Watts. 

Corden said, "The first of those is the man on my right, Mr. Reggie Watts. For those of you who know Reggie, you already know you are in the presence of greatness. And for those of you who don't know him, I promise you are in for a treat. Thank you for being here Reggie. Thank you for doing this. I feel so lucky to have you here, truly." 

Watts will do double-duty as his final ten episodes on IFC's Comedy Bang Bang air in the coming weeks. 

"The Late, Late Show" airs weeknights on KRTV at 11:35 p.m. 

Corden and Watts are the successors to former host Craig Ferguson. 

Ferguson did not have a human sidekick or bandleader, instead relying on "Geoffrey Peterson," a "skeleton robot" that was voiced and operated by Josh Thompson. 

Ferguson signed off in late December; a series of guest stars hosted the program during the interim, including John Mayer, Wayne Brady, and Lauren Graham.
