Chelsea Handler in Talks for CBS's LATE LATE SHOW? Comic Teases on Instagram
Chelsea Handler turned to Instagram yesterday to tease an image of herself and her dog Chunk, thumbing through a pile of papers featuring the iconic CBS 'eye' logo. "Business meeting," captioned the comic. "Chunk has been acting like this since I started my tour."
Last week, CBS announced that Stephen Colbert would be taking over the reins for Late Show host David Letterman sometime in 2015. Since that time, speculation has began to grow as to whether Craig Ferguson will remain at his post on The Late Late Show, which follows Letterman.
In July 2007, Handler began starring on her own half-hour, late-night comedy series on E! titled Chelsea Lately. The show has proved to be a hit by averaging more than a half-million viewers since its premiere and having clips on Youtube with more than one million views.
After Lately is a mockumentary in which the various cast members, writers, crew, and even "hangers-on" of Chelsea Lately are shown bickering over trivial matters and competing for air time on the show. The show began airing on E! in 2011. Guest stars include: Reese Witherspoon (in seasons one and two), Jennifer Aniston, Jay Leno, Tori Spelling, Jenny McCarthy,Sharon Osbourne, Dave Grohl, Johnny Knoxville, and Jane Fonda.
