And it was the fifth highest rated telecast in the network’s history!

Seems Chelsea couldn't even ruin it!

  1. 1

    i watched it only cause of Chelsea



  2. 2

    perez you always have to add in that passive aggressive statement. its like, you take a great thing..11 mill viewers WOW!!..i guess chelsea can't even ruin it..you try doing what she did.



  3. 3

    Then why do I keep hearing that it sucked?



  4. 4

    ruin it? bitch, she made it! that and the feud between swift and west.



  5. 5

    I bet it was all those Justin Beiber fans.



  6. 6

    i love chelsea!



  7. 7

    What the fuck were people tuning in for? That may have been worse than last years VMAs.



  8. 8

    She looks like she would be a bartender in some redneck joint. Maybe date the bouncer and the owner and maybe the beer salesman………she looks kinda rugged and worn.



  9. 9

    Eben though I thought she wasn't as funny last night, she is the reason I actually watched it live.



  10. 10

    One of the reasons for me watching was b/c of Chelsea lol.



  11. 11

    Last nights show was atrocious but it certainly wasn't Chelsea's fault dumbass. She was just nervous, wait till she goes after you tonight fat boy.



  12. 12

    whats the matter? chelsea didnt kiss your ass so now you have to bash her?
    fuck you perez, and your sister too.



  13. 13

    Oh Stfu Perez!
    Like anyone would ever tune in to watch your fat ass try and host anything or anyone would EVER ask you to actually host an important show like the VMA's.
    Stop being such a little bitch with Chelsea just cause she went off on you & you totally deserved it.
    She's more successful than you'll ever be.



  14. 14

    Proof? Not buying it. Made up just like the KarTRASHians so called ratings.



  15. 15

    vma sucked last night. bring back russell brand!



  16. 16

    Honestly i hated Chelsea as the VMAs host ! she sucked big time + her jokes never made me laugh ! she takes her " jokes" to another level and not in a good way ! somebody should slap that bitches face ! :)



  17. 17

    Surprising. It was very boring this year…

  18. lynna says – reply to this


    18

    i can't wait until someone fucking hits you in the face AGAIN. she was great. youre fucking saggy.



  19. 19

    But Chelsea, who's usually wonderful, tanked big time.



  20. 20

    most viewers ?? i doubt. cause everybody is saying terrible critics about vmas. they say its the worst vma ever



  21. 21

    I think a lot of people watched it BECAUSE of Chelsea. That's why I watched the show, and many people I know watched it because she was hosting. Top her fans off with all the tweens that watched for Bieber and all the people who wanted to see Gaga's stupid costumes and you have a lot of people tuning in. Pretty sure Chelsea didn't ruin it, as she drew a lot of viewers in which allowed MTV to brag about the ratings.



  22. 22

    If that is true then tweens probably tuned in for the Kanye/Taylor drama or the Bieber geek. This however, is not good news for Handler since she just proved to a larger audience that she is just a crude vulgar whore whose humor would be more welcome at a strip club or truck stop! It is unbelievable the Crap that E! is pushing off as talent these days,the kardashians, Handler……



  23. 23

    I WATCHED IT ONLY BECAUSE OF CHELSE AND FLORENCE AND THE MACHINES AND GA AG TO SEE WIN NOT HER STUPID LOOK >>



  24. 24

    Um because of GaGa, hello!



  25. 25

    Dude I think Chelsea was great. You are a hipocrate and some times you're disgusting. You go to her show and put a nice face but here you trash everyone. She was great for being her fist. Hater you are.



  26. 26

    This host sucked big time! Embarrassing is the word.



  27. 27

    People watched to see/hear whatever media nonsense songs Kanye and Taylor were being hyped to have planned for one another. Chelsea Handler was horrific as a host. But she's been acting weird ever since breaking up with the head of E!



  28. 28

    Well, Chelsea was just scripted, unfortunately. If she could say whatever, I guarantee it would be 10 000 times better. I just watched because of her… she should start here own " Chelsea Award"!!! that would be great!



  29. 29

    FUCK OFF FAT ASS!! THE ONLY REASON PEEPS WATCHED WAS BECUZ OF SWIFT AND WEST AND WTF THEY WERE GONNA DO. WATCH NEXT YR… THE VIEWERS PLUMMET BACK TO 50,000 CUZ NO ONE WANTS TO WATCH LADY CACA, THE COKE SNORTING TRANNY DYKE BITCH!! TRUTH!!!



  30. 30

    I don't think she ruined it. I think she was stronger in skits that involved other people (the Lindsay thing in the beginning or even the Jersey Shore thing), though. Filling in the space between with random jokes didn't go so well. She just seemed a little awkward (though I feel the same about her own show, she's strongest in the beginning when she has the other comedians on and they can bounce things off each other)



  31. 31

    Chelsea's the only reason I watched. Every other award went to Em or GAGa and the only two good performances were usher and florence and the machine.



  32. 32

    I only watched it because of Chelsea, otherwise I would have watched something else. I also didn't pay attention to anyone who won or performed.



  33. 33

    Re: yumba1 – UMADBRO. Fail= your life.



  34. 34

    FUUUUCCCCKKKKK YYOOOOOOUUUUUU PEEEERREEZZZZZZZZ

    AS IF CHELSEA HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT THESE WERE THE HIGHEST RATED VMA'S SINCE 2002.

    THIS IS THE FIRST TIME SINCE GOD KNOWS WHEN, THAT I ACTUALLY TUNED IN FOR THE VMA'S AND WATCHED IT IN FULL >>>>> AND IT WAS BECAUSE OF THAT HOT MESS BITCH CHELSEA HANDLER

    SHE IS AMAZING. YOU SUCK. END OF STORY.

    GO CHELSEA! ………….A TIP' OF THE COLSOPUS TO YOU!!!!! BEST VMA'S SINCE MADONNA KISSED BRITNEY

    SORRY FOR ALL TE CAPS, IM A LITTLE DRUNK AS I TYPE THIS.

    FOLLOW ME ON TWWWWIIITTTEEERRRRR BIIIITTCCHHEES >>> @MattyDB



  35. 35

    the vmas complelty sucked this year! best live performace was deff. usher and then eminem and rihanna also eminem wasnt even there to get his awards! vmas dissapointed me and all my friends this year



  36. 36

    chelsea was the only one that was good and funny, fuck off perez, dont talk about chelsea. FUCK U FAT SCUMBAG



  37. 37

    Re: SwedishSweetheart – embarassing is when u wear a dress out of meat and then sing ur shitty lyrics during ur acceptance speech as if anybody cares. i guess u were just born a stupid delusional bitch,.



  38. 38

    I only watched the VMA last night because of her. You're just a little bitter because MTV didn't ask you to host. I can imagine it now.. Perez and his chubby ass following GAGA around like a lapdog. Chelsea was amazing, nervous but rocked. :)



  39. 39

    fuck chelsea fuck beiber it was all about eminem



  40. 40

    think about it last vmas Christina opened up and it tanked, usually u put the best first to attract views duh



  41. 41

    Perez I tuned in only because of Chelsea this year. I am a huge Gaga fan and didn't even watch it live last year. You try going from a little studio room to a HUGE stadium set up like that. Hell look at Russell Brands 1st and 2nd VMA hosting gig. If you ask me it was far worse. Yeah Chelsea had some bumps but who cares, overall she did good.



  42. 42

    Uh Perez Chelsea has let you be on her show how many times and yet here you are talking shit about her. Ugh disgusting



  43. 43

    It was the Taylor/Kanye hype, not Handler. Chelsea Handler was THE worst host ever. I DVR'd the show so I could skip over her low class shtick disguised as comedy.



  44. 44

    I haven't looked on this website in sooo long, but had to go ahead and create a username and comment because this is exactly why I stopped visiting your site:

    Chelsea Handler is hilarious, and the MTV execs realize this + her impressive fan base. The REASON they had those numbers, has A LOT to do with the fact she was hosting. You come off as bitter and jealous. Your 15 minutes of fame is over and you're back to being just another internet celebrity blogger.

    I was your biggest fan, but you proved yourself to be just another wannabe fame whore, and show nothing but JEALOUSLY towards those who continue to succeed past your own celebrity.

    Best of luck, and good riddance.



  45. 45

    All I've been hearing is how horrendous and predictable it was. As usual. Good thing I skipped it and spared 2 hours of my time doing something more productive. :)



  46. 46

    Awww…I love Chelsea! She gives tired Moms something to laugh about every night! And I love you, Perez! - Heidi Ferrer www.girltomom.com



  47. 47

    I love Chelsea, but I'll admit she was pretty bad as host.



  48. 48

    HAHA I just read what her response to Perez was. That's why I love her.



  49. 49

    Re: rbdbnn – Christina didn't open the last VMAs, Janet Jackson and the Michael Jackson tribute did. Are you sure you're not thinking of the MTV Movie Awards?



  50. 50

    Re: sarawhat! – absolutely



  51. 51

    That's because the Jersey Shore cast was there, ha!



  52. 52

    Re: Jayinizer – ooooohhh thats a good diss!!



  53. 53

    I watched because of Chelsea. But, I must say this…. the vma's did suck this year not because of chelsea it's because they only handed out like ten awards the rest was live preformances. Last time I checked VMA's were ment for rewards



  54. 54

    people watched the vma's because the taylor v kayne issue…if they weren't there i would have changed the channel and caught the rest on replay.



  55. 55

    Re: yumba1 Yup as always, the woman gets called the whore but guys with crude jokes are funny.



  56. 56

    it was awesome!! chelsea was highlarious



  57. 57

    Re: samiikinsss – Ummm Ushers Performance was not the best… this is why a lot of you people annoy me. Florence can actually fucking sing and she should be the one praised today. I did enjoy eminem and kanye, but come one.

    And people bash Gaga because people in this country hate talent honestly, bitch can sing better than any other female popstar(britney can't sing worth shit and honestly Madonna isn't amazing live either). Yes lets trash people who have made it to Julliard and started playing the piano at 4. I don't give a shit if you like her music, she is part of the very few talented pop artists.

    Oh, I am sorry, I forgot all this country cares about is auto-tuned shit and lip-synchers.



  58. 58

    Chelsea did fine with what she had to work with.



  59. 59

    Just because it's had high ratings does not mean the show was good. It just means people wanted to watch to see if it was going to be good. The show sucked. Chelsey is taking credit for the high ratings but she totally sucked. I typically like her but she was horrible last night. It certainly was not because of her that the ratings were high.



  60. 60

    Chelsea Handler was the only reason why the 12 people crammed into my dorm room to watch it. She was hilarious! The rest of the show tanked…

  61. Xenu says – reply to this


    61

    Reason for the ratings was people were wanting to see Taylor vs Kayne 2.0. Otherwise this SHOW was EPIC BORING from a network that pretty much is barely about music anymore.



  62. 62

    yea because of the hyped of taylor vs kanye shit
    but in reality that only means a lot of people wasted valuable life they will never be able to get back
    worst show in years they need to bring back real performers and more music acts
    to many lame jokes and predictable award winners
    i just was not impress this year



  63. 63

    If this years VMAS has the best ratings in 8 years, then it's a FACT that everything that aired last night worked. and that includes Chelsea Handler.



  64. 64

    It was boring… Nothing controversial happend… I wanted another kanye moment

  65. Hun says – reply to this


    65

    I didn't think much of the awards show. I think it had a lost to do with Jersey Shore being on right before, including Justin Bieber and Eminem



  66. 66

    She should spend her on a TRAINER, not on burgers and pies. She is fat and flabby. Or…she should wear clothes that cover the fatness and flabbiness. Really.



  67. 67

    whats wrong with you perez most of the people who watched did because of chelsea you fucking asswhole!



  68. 68

    perez your're so full of shit u say chelsea ruined but i love her and u ruined her show when u went on it ur such a piece of shit and chelsea is the best drunk bitch on late night!



  69. 69

    I only watched BECAUSE OF CHELSEA you no-talent tool.



  70. 70

    Hard to believe since the show sucked! The performances were lame (except Usher) and Chelsea just didn't cut it. Come to think of it, even the presenters scripts and deliveries were boring. IMO, the last good VMA was '06.



  71. 71

    Thanks to MTV hyping Eminem!



  72. 72

    really. chelsea was the only cool thing about the vma's besides mau5 and kanye.



  73. 73

    i didn't watch them… but if i had, i would have ONLY watched them because of chelsea



  74. 74

    I thought she did bad!



  75. 75

    i thought she was pretty good - there's been funnier but she wasn't horrible like mario portrays…….



  76. 76

    How come I haven't heard anything about Robyn's performance? Where is a video? Aren't you a fan Perez? WTF!!!



  77. 77

    That many? WOW, what a shocker! I think the problem for Chealsea, those 11,4 millions people will know now, how sucked she truly is!



  78. 78

    The only reason I watch was because of Chelsea…
    You are just jealous because you had to sit at home… boooo hoooo



  79. 79

    The show sucked and Chelsea was not as funny as I thought she would've been.



  80. 80

    NO



  81. 81

    The ONLY reason I watched it was because Chelsea Handler was hosting it. Other than that it was so ridiculous. A bunch of people trying their hardest to be super cool. We ended up laughing at them all night long.



  82. 82

    Chelsea was the only good part about that shitfest.
