Joel McHale Finally Addresses 'Late Late Show' Rumors, The Infamous Twitter Picture

No "Soup" host for you, CBS.

In May, Joel McHale retweeted a photo of himself, CBS head Les Moonves and Julie Chen, and then everyone lost it. The Internet assumed this confirmed McHale would replace Craig Ferguson on "The Late Late Show," though CBS adamantly denied the rumors. Now, McHale is finally coming clean about the picture, and his answer seems pretty definitive.

"It was fucking picture!" McHale told Conan O'Brien.

Yep. Pretty definitive.
