That Chelsea Handler, she’s a sneaky one. While initially it was speculated that the “Chelsea Lately” host may jump to CBS to take over for David Letterman on “The Late Show,” that’s not going to happen as Stephen Colbert got the job.
That doesn’t make “The Late Late Show” off limits, though. With “Chelsea Lately” ending its run after Handler’s contract comes to a close, the host is stirring things up with a new Instagram photo. In it, she poses with her dog and a pamphlet featuring the CBS logo. “Business meeting,” she writes. “Chunk has been acting like this since I started my tour.”
Les Moonves, CEO of the CBS Corporation, has already said “12:30 is up in the air,” and that a woman in the late night lineup would be “great.” Is Craig Ferguson on his way out? His contract expires in June, and he’s been following Letterman on air since 2005.
