Chelsea Handler is not in the running for the 12:35 a.m. time slot, so says CBS. The current host of E! late-night talker Chelsea Lately posted an Instagram photo Monday of her with a packet of papers, one of which prominently featured the CBS logo, alluding to the fact that she was in the market for a new project at the broadcast network. "Business meeting," read the image caption. Photos: Stephen Colbert's Career in Pictures But CBS isn't offering much insight into Handler's cryptic post. After reports surfaced that Handler could be a successor to Craig Ferguson at the Late

In case her current bosses at E! haven’t gotten the message, Chelsea Handler is doing all she can to make it known that she’s on the market for a new gig. Whether everyone in the market is interested in her services is another question. Last night, Handler posted a photo of herself holding some papers carrying a giant CBS eye logo. “Business meeting,” the tag accompanying the pic read. Was this meant as a subtle way of confirming a report on the Wrap last week that Handler was “in talks” to replace Craig Ferguson as the Eye’s 12:35 a.m. host? If so, CBS isn’t playing along. “There are no discussions with Chelsea Handler regarding the network’s 12:30 late night broadcast,” a CBS spokesman told Vulture. “Her meeting with CBS yesterday was a general meeting with our syndication [division.]”Aside from that, though, it should also be noted that in Hollywood, »

Chelsea Handler is fanning the late night talk show flames, posting a photo on Instagram of her holding a pile of CBS papers ... which she termed a "business meeting."Handler appears to be the next domino that will fall in the late night shuffle. She's leaving E! and the big buzz going around is that she'll replace Craig Ferguson, who is no doubt none too happy he didn't get David Letterman's gig.We're told that as of last week, »

The day after CBS’s bombshell announcement that Stephen Colbert would replace David Letterman on Late Show, when things calmed down a bit and reason returned to her throne, industry pundits began to contemplate the deeper meaning of the shift in the late-night landscape. Practically speaking, it means Comedy Central is now one late-night show short — and CBS may be as well, if Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson, or the network, decides to call it a day now that Craig’s for sure not getting the 11:35 Pm timeslot. We’ve all been brought up to speed on the clause in Craig’s contract that landed him a pot of cash if the network settled elsewhere on its Letterman replacement. But Ferguson was quick to tweet his congratulations to Colbert the morning the news broke. That night, Ferguson opened his show with another shout out to Colbert, after which »

From director and writer Dean DeBlois and producer Bonnie Arnold, the thrilling second chapter of the epic How To Train Your Dragon trilogy brings us back to the fantastical world of Hiccup and Toothless five years after the two have successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk.
While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.
Now, Hiccup »

The internet can't handle change, but it loves any excuse to complain about it. Yesterday, after CBS averted a year of hosting duty speculation by announcing Stephen Colbert as the heir to David Letterman's Late Show throne, critical voices immediately jumped into action. Responses ranged from shock to gushing to sympathetic tips of the hat toward Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson to much-needed Colbert Report tributes to the inevitable speculation and fearful cries. CNN and Vanity Fair both worried that a network talk show will neuter the “once-removed antagonistic persona of his Comedy Central blowhard.” Deadline compared Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube numbers to his competition, wondering if he had the social media momentum to make Late Show a contender. Chicago Sun-Times echoed a reasonable sentiment: Colbert was another white man in a landscape in need of diversity. Right-wingers are equally miffed; The New York Post says “millions of »

The comedy community is busy congratulating Stephen Colbert, who has earned the coveted role of Late Show host. The news came Thursday afternoon, just one week after outgoing host David Letterman announced his plans to retire in 2015 — and just in time for other late-night hosts to send their regards during Thursday’s new episodes.
Jon Stewart offered the fondest farewell to his Comedy Central colleague, reminiscing about Colbert’s time on The Daily Show with a ridiculous old clip in which both comedians completely blow it because they’re making each other laugh so hard. But Stewart’s ensuing tribute »

EW reports that Starz has ordered The Chair, a reality series from the producer of Project Greenlight. The competition will follow two first-time directors as they direct their version of the same movie script. A team of mentors — including Zachary Quinto — will oversee the process.
Twilight alum Booboo Stewart has joined the cast of The Descendants, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That’s the Disney Channel movie about the children of villains from classic animated Disney movies. Stewart will play the son of Jafar.
After CBS announced that Stephen Colbert would take over as The Late Show host, the fun was watching the meltdowns on the right wing blogosphere. Rush Lumbaugh responded that CBS “declared war on the heartland of America” while Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro called Colbert’s faux pundit character “political blackface“.
Meanwhile, Colbert’s promotion raises new questions like what will replace The Colbert Report »

The second generation of post-Carson latenight hosts plays better together than the first.
Carson’s two immediate heirs, Jay Leno and David Letterman, were never that close. And who can blame them? NBC’s decision to hand over its latenight mainstay, “The Tonight Show,” to Leno over Letterman made a close friendship almost impossible. Now their successors are exhibiting warmer feelings for each other.
Jimmy Fallon, Jon Stewart, and, perhaps surprisingly, Craig Ferguson, are among the latenight hosts wishing Stephen Colbert well on the heels of CBS’ announcement Thursday that Colbert would take the reins of its “Late Show” when David Letterman retires in 2015.
Each has a reason to be snarky. Colbert arguably got his start on Comedy Central’s “Daily Show,” which led to a berth on “Colbert Report.” Fallon, already grappling with Jimmy Kimmel at ABC, will be a direct competitor of Colbert’s new version of “The Late Show »

Craig Ferguson is welcoming Stephen Colbert to CBS. The Late Late Show host congratulated Colbert, who was named heir to David Letterman's Late Show Thursday during a taping of his show. "First of all, before we begin tonight, may I congratulate the lovely Stephen Colbert on getting The Late Show?" Ferguson said Thursday. "Isn’t that lovely? Congratulations, Stephen! A fine addition to the CBS cavalcade of stars." Analysis: With Stephen Colbert, CBS Targets One of Late Night's Youngest Audiences Earlier, Ferguson tweeted his well wishes.

Craig Ferguson dispenses with the elephant in the room at the start of tonight’s edition of “The Late Late Show” by acknowledging Stephen Colbert’s new gig as “Late Show” host. He addresses the matter head on at the start of his cold open.
“First of all, before we begin tonight, may I congratulate the lovely Stephen Colbert on getting ‘The Late Show.’ Isn’t that lovely? Congratulations Stephen! A fine addition to the CBS cavalcade of stars,” Ferguson says, according to a transcript from CBS.
With Colbert set as David Letterman’s successor, the focus of latenight watchers turns to Ferguson’s next move. It’s not immediately clear if he hopes to stay in the 12:35 a.m. slot now that “Late Show” is set to pass to Colbert. Reps for Ferguson declined comment Thursday.
Earlier in the day, Ferguson shared a similar sentiment on Twitter:

One of the emerging forces in the animation film genre over the past few years has been Dreamworks.

A week after David Letterman announced that he'd be retiring from CBS' Late Show in 2015, CBS tapped Colbert Report Emmy winner Stephen Colbert as his successor. The announcement ended a week of speculation about who would take over for late-night's longest-running host and go head-to-head with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel. The Hollywood Reporter caught up with CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler to discuss what made Colbert the right man for the job, whether Late Show will remain in New York and what the network's plans are for Craig Ferguson, whose contract for The Late Late

CBS’ announcement today that Comedy Central rock star Stephen Colbert would replace David Letterman as host of its late-night show in 2015 caps a whirlwind week in which the network jumped from being just a little footnote in the coverage of The Battle Of The Two Jimmys to the undisputed star of the late-night drama. But don’t get out of your seats yet – the drama’s not over. CBS execs are thought to be frustrated with Craig Ferguson’s show that follows Dave’s (it is co-produced by CBS and Letterman’s Worldwide Pants, which will depart as Late Show producer when its boss retires.) Ferguson’s numbers have not broadened out as CBS had hoped, and there are rumblings that CBS isn’t done yet and we should expect another move to come. On the bright side, Ferguson will now benefit from the lucrative (reportedly in the neighborhood of »

In its seventh week, NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” still easily beat ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and CBS’ “Late Show With David Letterman” — and, impressively, showed demo gains vs. the comparable week a year ago while the other guys were down.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Tonight Show” averaged 3.829 million viewers for the week of March 31-April 4, beating out “Late Show” (2.916 million) and “Kimmel” (2.513 million). All three shows were up in these overall-audience figures, with “Tonight” rising 6%, “Late Show” up 8% and “Kimmel” up 5%.
Letterman saw a ratings surge on Thursday when he announced his retirement, and Kimmel had a strong Wednesday with President Clinton as guest. But while these nights helped close the gap between Fallon and the others, it was not nearly enough to change the latenight rankings. »
