Will Chelsea Handler Replace Craig Ferguson? Get To The Bottom Of CBS' Plans HERE!

Chelsea Handler didn't help to stifle speculation that she could replace Craig Ferguson yesterday!

But is the network really ready to give Craig the boot? Well, as much as they protest, CBS still hasn't extended the Late Late Show host's contract through next year!

And according to an inside source, even if they don't straight up let him go, CBS could be opting to make Craig an offer he CAN refuse! The source says:

"He's not exactly in the driver’s seat when it comes down to negotiating."

But whatever their plans are regarding the 12:30 spot, the Eye is staying shut tight for now. And it isn't ready to wink along with Chelsea either! In a statement, CBS said:

"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 [division.]"

Well, as much as we're hoping for a female voice on network late night, it sounds like it won't be Chelsea- at least not right now…

    I enjoy Chelsea's show but she can get away with more being on E
    but if she moves to CBS she will have to a lot tamer and that won't work

    Well if they let Craig go it will be the last of the CBS shows that I am presently watching! Craig is the most creative and talented of ALL the late night people and Chelsea is a one note wonder who can't improve anyone's ratings.

    Craig Ferguson's hilarious late late show is the ONLY show on cbs that we faithfully
    record to watch at a reasonable time. Craig is absolutely right when they say "This
    is not like any other late night show". Craig's show —IS FUNNY—we laugh through the
    entire show.
