CBS is considering hiring a woman for “The Late Late Show” as the TV network weighs a complete remodeling of its programming for night owls.
CBS, moving quickly to fill a looming hole in its entertainment lineup, named Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert as David Letterman’s late-night replacement.
CBS, which today named Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman, is also considering a new host for “The Late Late Show.”
David Letterman, the late-night star of CBS Corp.’s television network, agreed to host his program through 2014, setting the stage to break Johnny Carson’s record of 30 years.
Comedian Chelsea Handler, whose “Chelsea Lately” late-night program is ending this year, will host a new talk show for Netflix Inc. under an agreement that also includes five specials.
David Letterman’s retirement from CBS next year may open the door for a woman to take over one of TV’s iconic late-night talk shows for the first time.
"He is incredibly committed, driven."
