Chelsea Handler Is Leaving E! In Nine Months! What Will Happen To Chelsea Lately?!

Chelsea Handler will part ways with E!

Don’t worry, folks! The show must, and WILL go on!

Chelsea Handler’s manager Irving Azoff has announced that the talk show host plans to leave E! in nine months when her contract is up, after being with the network for eight years.

On Howard Stern's show earlier this month, the 39-year-old jokester said that the network was “a sad, sad place to live.” She went on to explain:

“They don’t know what they’re doing. They have no ideas. It’s a failure.”

That’s pretty harsh!

As for where Chelsea Lately will end up, that’s in the air. However, one source explained that Miz Handler’s recent comments against her network could end up hurting her chances.

Another source said that Chelsea may not be able to find anyone else to pay her $9 million a year either!

BUT Azoff says the evidence is to the contrary. According to The Hollywood Reporter:

“[Azoff’s] numbers show that Chelsea Lately consistently has built on its lead-in and that this year, her show is averaging a 67 percent increase in viewers over that lead-in, the largest build in the show’s eight-year run. His data also shows her audience is more female than the competitors on any network and younger, with the exception of Conan O’Brien on TBS (though the data for NBC's Tonight Show predates Jimmy Fallon's stint as host).”

That sounds promising! And Azoff added that there are “at least seven suitors” looking to house the show.

In addition to CL, Chelsea is promoting her New York Times best-seller Uganda be Kidding Me and is shooting her first stand-up special in October.

In terms of what kind of show Miz Handler would want, well, she’s said a Netflix forum would be her favorite.

Thoughts???

    So glad she's going. Hope no one else makes the mistake of hiring her–but I guess that's a vain hope as some people like filth.

    Start working at home with Google! Just work for few hours and have more time with friends and family. I earn up to $500 per week. It's a great work at home opportunity. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. Linked here

    TBS seems like it'd be a perfect fit for her. Or maybe Hulu or Netflix. They're looking to expand their property, and Chelsea Handler would be allowed to do whatever she pleased. It's a win-win.

    Im not the biggest fan of her but shes right on about E being a stupid network now. Their biggest bait are the Kardashians, doesnt say much.

    why do i have a feeling they may grab a kardashian to replace her show? they keep having them host it when she's gone promoting her book… sad to see her go

    Oh no :( we need more Chelsea! Kathy Griffin or Whitney Cummings would be perfect to host the show

    Re: anne – If that is truly your hope and desire, then I think you might be disappointed because she will absolutely land a show somewhere. She isnt quiting a $9m a year job just to become unemployed. People might be sick of her, but she's sick of E! and that is that.

    At 9 million a year, turns out she is one of the highest earners on TV per viewers when they break it down
    I remember watching her years ago, loved her, loved her books, but than she seemed to lose it, I think it was drugs & booze, she became sloppy

    Remember Brett Butler ?

    It must be hard for her to be on a show that most of the idiots she makes fun of are on the same network!! E stands for excrement not entertainment. She might have to step it up a notch for another network since E is so crappy. She's better off! I hope she takes her crew with her.

    Re: jackie – i know! but the concept wasn't good.

    I dunno what to say. I've never thought she was very entertaining or funny anyhow.

    I'm surprising myself, by suggesting Kloe Kardassian, but she did a Great Job subbing for Chelsea a few weeks ago. Really great job!

    I love and adore this woman if she isnt happy there more power to her to leave.I just hope she finds another network i can watch this kick ass woman!

    I think she would be a good fit for FOX. Like a late night kind of show.

    I have been hoping she would leave TV since she revealed she is a racists. trans phobic ,mean girl and is a hot mess. She lacks any real talent outside mean girl humor and she is too old to play. She even helped get that atrocious "pretty wild' show on but she pretended to talk smack and make money off those parasites . Good Riddance!

    Oh no a woman being outspoken? Looks like there will be repercussions. Lame ass sexism. She is probably right. If the lady can write books without E she will most definitely be OK without E. She should have her own netflix series no one watches nasty cable anymore anyways.

    She's outgrown the show. It's time she move on to better things. Go Chelsey! 'Girl'

    I am a big fan of "Tracey Lately!" lol. I will watch her show on whatever channel is brave enough to pick it up. She is funny. She makes me laugh at the end of my day. If people can't handle her particular sense of humor, there is probably a remote nearby!!

    oh nooooooooo!!!…chelsea lately is the only watchable show on E! together with the soup…the rest is garbage!!!! hope they'll come to an agreement

    oh ninja pleassseeee-E! obviously isn't renewing her contract so she is getting help from Anustain's PR camp-so they spin it-she is leaving and who is the lucky network that will win her over?? splash it all over fish for offers-act to good-hopefully no one falls for that crappp and finally we are rid of that foul alcoholic skankk-the more like they try to spin this as opportunity the more obvious it is that she is desperate

    She's an ungrateful asshole. I use to be a big fan, even read her first 3 books, but after she bashed my aunt and uncle who she went to HS with on her show, bashes our state, is nasty to the fans who come up to her & now biting the hand that feeds her. Let me also say this, what late night host has EVER gone away on many lavish week long vacations and has a bunch of random people host your own show–Letterman? Fallon? Kimmel? None.

    A TIRED OLD Whore without an original thought. And, please, she is not "quitting" — her contract is not being renewed because they don't want her. Boring and predictable. Her interview "skills" are truly lacking, and if she can not make some kind of sex reference, she is lost.

    I enjoy her show not for her but for the panel who I feel are very funny. Don't like her bashing certain people on the panel. Not funny. And the poor guys she dresses up in drag — definitely not funny. I'm sure she's very funny at stand-up, but not suited for talk show.

    I just saw her come on,and I don't watch or like her anymore.I used to think she was very funny,but she got so into swearing,shock-jock,insulting,and she relied on that.She got NOT FUNNY ANY MORE.She is not clever or witty,and her frenzied insistance of all gay-marriage in every state,was so extreme,I got sick of her.She turned into a know-it-all,tacky,not clever, bad imitation of Joan Rivers.And I like Joan Rivers,she handles BLUE JOKES very well,so they are funny.Handler does not.It sounds like Handler is on coke,or meth,she is out of her mind.The woman is NO LONGER FUNNY,just tackky,yakking a mile a minute–a big symptom of coke or meth.She just is not good at her job.Forget her.I think she has problems,seriously.

    Re: Buzz – Yes,she is too big for her britches,insulting everyone,trashing everyone,she must be an alcoholic,its clear she is flying on SOMETHING.That is a seriously,over-entitled,smart-alec b—,and just comes off a snob,let her leave tv.(she just nastied Cloris Leachman, and the audience said"OOOHHH!" and was offended. so was I. ) She has something WRONG with her.SPOILED BRAT!! AND NOT FUNNY.

    Re: Dawnstar – ONLY PROBLEM WITH HER NEW SHOW WHERE SHE GOES, IS, THEY BETTER HAVE THE REHAB CLINIC PICKED OUT FOR HER TO BLACK OUT IN. THEY'LL NEED IT.EITHER FOR PILLS,DOPE,COKE,HEROIN, METH OR ALCOHOL. SHE'S NOT FUNNY ANYMORE. I USED TO LIKE HER,NOT NOW.I THINK E IS STILL BETTER-CLASS THAN HANDLER, NOW, AND EVEN A KARDASHIAN (WHOM I DON'T CARE FOR) WOULD BE A STEP UP IN CLASS..I PREDICT, HANDLER EITHER OVER-DOSES SOME DAY,OR ALCOHOL,AUTO-ACCIDENT, FINALLY KILLS HER. SHE IS ON A FAST PATH TO REHAB, NONENTITY, OR SUDDEN DEATH. MY PREDICTIONS ARE OFTEN TRUE.
