"Everything is an option" is Hollywood speak for "I'm desperate for the job, but playing coy, but really I'll blow everyone from the washroom attendant on up for a chance at it!"

Skip the dicking around and put Sarah Silverman on network TV.  You've already been bleeping Craig for ages.

There used to be a watershed.  You used to actually be able to swear on late night TV.

I'll be sorry to see Craig go.  He is hands down the best late night host on TV.

Mugato: Hyjamon: agreed, he answered his own question.  It is a one-trick pony.  Otherwise, we should also consider Amy Schumer for the same qualifications.

Except she's neither hot nor funny. Those are kind of deal breakers.


Hotter than Sarah Silverman.

I think I might like Handler better if she wasn't so blatantly lying about her age.  It is so obvious she is not in her 30s.  And god help her if she looks like that and isn't lying about her age....

mjohnson71: Could she get out of the contracts? Who owns The View, Whose Line... and Archer?


It's "The Talk" rather than The View that she's on, and CBS owns it. If CBS wants her on the Late Late Show, they can easily do it.

Not to mention CBS could probably easily buy her out of the Whose Line contract if they needed to, and they might not be bothered by her doing one or two more seasons of Archer (I doubt there's any more than that), especially since it's not a terribly large time commitment.

Her or NPH would be probably the best choices amongst those thrown out there. Please god not Chelsea Handler. Her interviews are awful. She only manages to be funny on her show by having 3 or 4 other comedians around with her.

She's already got two full-time shows on her plate with The Talk and Whose Line...Then add her Archer voiceover stuff.

Whose Line barely counts as a full-time show.  From everything I've heard they tape all the episodes in a short period.  And why does it seem like you're assuming she couldn't leave one or both if she got a better gig?

Could she get out of the contracts? Who owns The View, Whose Line... and Archer?


"Archer" probably wouldn't present too much of a problem, it's only 13 half hour (22 minutes, really) episodes a year.  Also, voice work usually doesn't take that much time.  When Lucky Yates (Dr. Krieger) was on Alton Brown's podcast he said he only works 15 minutes every couple weeks when he's working on the show.  And they record their parts individually, so it probably wouldn't be an issue for them to schedule around whatever else she was doing.

And as other people have said upthread, "Whose Line" isn't exactly a huge time commitment either.  When Drew Carey was hosting he was the star/executive producer of his own sitcom at the same time.

People hate Sarah Silverman around here but I think she's hot and yes, funny. We're not talking George Carlin/Richard Pryor but she's a cute chick who talks dirty. Sometimes my tastes are less than sophisticated.


Funny in small doses but she's not remotely pretty.

As far as Chelsea's ratings:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chelsea_Lately#Ratings

They are down, but, 500k viewers is probably still pretty decent for a network like E!'s cable profile.

For similar cable comparison...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conan_(TV_series)#Ratings

Conan in 2013 was 800k, and TBS is a much higher profile cable network than E!

It sounds like I'm of the same opinion of a lot of you here.  I can't stand her.  I thought she was funny at first, but the hostility and aggressiveness makes her seem like an asshole.  Oh yeah, and acting like an asshole in real life also makes her seem like an asshole.

Not to sound all "change is bad", but with all the new late night hosts the only one I'm even half interested in is Colbert, who will likely be at least 25% less funny and interesting than he is on his current show.

epyonyx: How did she become popular?


She isn't. Or at least I was under the impression that her show is scheduled to be taken off E! for that very reason.

Personally I'd rather listen to someone drag their nails across a blackboard for 30 min's than watch another episode of Chelsea Lately .
