Jewish Funny Woman Chelsea Handler Eyed as Letterman Replacement

Jewish Funny Woman Chelsea Handler Eyed as Letterman Replacement

Chelsea Handler is reportedly in talks with CBS to secure a late-night talk show, according a source from the E! network, where the Jewish actress and comedian hosts a talk show, and also from the entertainment website TheWrap.

TheWrap reported on Saturday, April 5, that CBS had contacted Handler to discuss the possibility of hosting a syndicated show. The talks developed as a result of Handler announcing this week that she will leave E! when her contract for the late night show "Chelsea Lately" expires at the end of this year. TheWrap also reported that "Handler has told CBS that she isn't interested in that option. As a result, CBS then expressed interest in considering Handler for Craig Ferguson's 12:30 a.m. slot."

But her plans have reportedly changed. She will be meeting with CBS Corp.'s chairman and CEO Les Moonves in the coming weeks to continue discussing becoming a part of CBS's late-night lineup, the E! source told TheWrap. But, as a result of Letterman announcing his upcoming retirement last week, Handler has set her site set on his "Late Show" time slot instead of Ferguson's.

TheWrap reports that whichever time slot Handler winds up with she would be, historically speaking, the first woman to host a late-night broadcast show since Cynthia Garrett hosted NBC's “Later” from 2000-2001.

While CBS declined comment to the Jewish Voice. But TheWrap reported on the upcoming negotiations, saying the possibility with CBS is just one of the many projects that Handler has been considering. It had been previously reported that she was eying a weekly radio show on Sirius XM with a taped version of the show to be offered on Netflix, with which she is currently in talks with as well, according to the individual. (Netflix told TheWrap that Handler had not been in talks with the company about a show.)

It has also been reported that Handler has been approached by other networks, including HalN, FX, and Jeff Zucker for CNN.

But the E! Source still reported to TheWrap that "the Letterman spot has changed things for her. It is now No. 1 on her list."

If nothing else, theCBS-Handler talks indicate that a replacement for Craig Ferguson at 12:30 a.m was being considered. The “Late, Late Show” host reportedly has the right of first refusal for Letterman's spot, although CBS may not want to give it to him.
