Chelsea Handler is the only female late night talk show host, yet the comedian says that once her contract ends she will not be returning to E! and continuing her show. The contract does not end for another eight months, so fans of Handler can still watch her on weeknights.

The Hollywood Reporter writes: Chelsea Handler plans to leave the E! channel when her contract expires at the end of the year, bringing a close to her Chelsea Lately talk show after eight years, according to her manager, Irving Azoff. Handler has long been vocal about her dissatisfaction with the network though such complaints could be perceived as part of a negotiation. In this case, Azoff tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Chelsea intends to leave when her contract expires. She hired me to figure out her life after E! We have at least seven suitors and many ideas.” He adds that plans for Handler could include a radio presence and a possible nightly or weekly late-night show on another network or digital service."

What do you say Sodaheads? Is this sad news or are you thinking, "good riddance"? Is she making a good decision, or is this a bad move for her career?

    She more than likely tried to demand more money, and they said so long. I never cared much for her show anyway.

    She's seemed over it anyway the couple of times I've watched. Hard to enjoy a show when the host doesn't look like they want to be there.

    Way to many talk shows. Glad Letterman is leaving. Get rid of Conan.

    Only saw one episode, and didn't watch it all. Another that thinks rude and tasteless are comedy. I wouldn't have even known she was gone without SodaHead.

    She'll be moving to a major network where she'll have a bigger audience and make a lot more money. Good for her!

    one of the few honest people in E whose words made sense and were not sycophancy to the 'lead drone mindset' of political protocol which seems to have long poisoned 'hollywood'.

    Definitely sad; one of the things I find to be attractive about her is her intelligent way of telling the truth.

    Although I've heard that some think that "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all!" still applies even in this day and age of anybody with political or financial power thinking nothing of lying to the American people...and so think Chelsea is "rude".

    lollllll....

    Not really good riddance. But not sad either. She is a very good looking woman with an attitude that I could not be around even to watch her show.

    Her books are funny, she is a decent writer. Her show, however, is just kinda blah. Once in a while there is a good zinger, but most of it was just unfunny stabs at people she doesn't like. Women that are good comedians are awesome, women that just harp on others and make stupid hateful commentary for shock value just look ridiculous.

    She's never really done anything for me, tho in all fairness I haven't seen her show in years. Her humour just seems to consist of being a jerk, which I don't find comedic.

    It's better than almost every other show on E!, except for 'The Soup.'

    I'd be sadder if it were Joel McHale leaving, but since it's Chelsea, eh. Her round tables with other comedians (namely Ross Matthews) were the best part. Everything else was so-so, at best.
