Joel McHale: My Picture With CBS Boss Does NOT Mean I’m Taking Late Late Show

Truth rating: 2

Joel McHale says not to read too much into a recent photo he took with CBS boss Les Moonves, which sparked speculation that he could be taking over “The Late Late Show” from Craig Ferguson.

Earlier this week, Julie Chen tweeted a picture of herself, Moonves and McHale, captioning it, “Me and my hubby hanging with the hilarious @joelmchale” (see right).

With McHale’s “Community” canceled and Ferguson leaving his show, rumors have emerged that McHale could inherit the late-night slot.

But while speaking to TMZ on Friday, the comedian made it clear that the picture with Moonves should not be interpreted as any kind of news.
