chelsea handler late late show no gi Chelsea Handler not hosting 'The Late Late Show', CBS says

Chelsea Handler may end up doing something with CBS after “Chelsea Lately” ends, but hosting “The Late Late Show” isn’t in the cards.
After Handler posted a photo on Instagram with her holding papers featuring the CBS logo, talk that she might take over the late night show currently hosted by Craig Ferguson began to stir. In a statement though, the network puts that thought to rest..
CBS tells THR, “There are no discussions with Chelsea Handler regarding the network’s 12:30 late night broadcast. Her meeting with CBS yesterday was a general meeting with our syndication group.”
Handler’s manager, Irving Azoff, tells The Wrap that the CBS logo’s presence in the photo was unintentional: “It was not a conscious attempt to say the meeting was with CBS,” Azoff says, adding that while he thought Handler should “hear all options,” her comedy is probably not the best fit with a broadcast network.

That news comes on the heels of CBS Corporation CEO Les Moonves saying “12:30 is up in the air” and that a woman in late night “would be great.” Ferguson’s contract with the network expires in June.
