Chelsea Handler talks late-night TV future with Ellen

What’s next for Chelsea Handler on TV in 2015? After posting this photo of herself on Instagram, with her dog and paperwork bearing the CBS logo and the caption “business meeting,” Handler clarified her position Wednesday with a Tweet: “I have never had nor will have any desire to take a job someone else has already had.
