Obviously Ferguson not getting the nod to replace Letterman has left people to speculate that CBS might not want him around anymore, but according to Vulture that is not the case.
“There are no discussions with Chelsea Handler regarding the network’s 12:30 late night broadcast. Her meeting with CBS yesterday was a general meeting with our syndication [division.],” a CBS spokesman told Vulture.
The Vulture story points out that celebrities and their agents set up meetings with networks all the time, and that much of the time nothing ever happens.
