OK, Michelle, I like this idea of Chelsea Handler replacing David Letterman too, but I’m not sure it adds up. First off, I love her – but I think America isn’t totally on board. She’s rude, trash talking and funny as hell but that spells late night, not 11:30. I think the powers that be would LOVE to get Jon Stewart (I assume they’ve been trying for YEARS) but who really DOES make sense to me is Stephen Colbert. He has the right vibe to make the leap. Plus, I think half of America is still confused by his faux right-wing personae anyway, which would work in his favor. So, Ms. Visage, wanna bet? We’re probably both wrong, and they’ll offer it to Ellen.
