Chelsea Lately to End in August

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The end of Chelsea Lately is nigh.

Both E! and Chelsea Handler confirmed yesterday that the talk show will wrap up its seven-year run with an hour-long live special at 11/10c on August 26.

"We are very proud of Chelsea Lately's long-running success and the unique space that the series carved out in late-night television," E! President Suzanne Kolb said in a statement.  

"Chelsea brought a distinct voice to late night with her acerbic wit and fearless commentary and we look forward to providing fans with a memorable send-off that lives up to that tradition."

"Most of all, we are grateful to the Chelsea Lately team for making this show so special for seven years."

Handler, known for her open views on sex and casual interview style, added:

"I myself am more surprised than anyone that I was able to hold down a job for seven years, and it was a fantastic seven years."

"I will always look back at my time on E! as most people look back at their time in college. I'm glad I went."

Many believe Handler is headed to CBS to take over for a departing Craig Ferguson.

Many others believe there's no way that network would go near such a controversial figure.

Either way... we'll miss Khloe Kardashian serving as Chelsea Lately guest host.
