Promos For Are You There Vodka? It's Me Chelsea

| Filed under: TV NewsSad SadChelsea Handler

We didn't include an exclamation mark after the title, because after seeing this promo, we are not excited for this at all. Which is really depressing because this is one of the shows we had high hopes for. We expected better, Chelsea!

Not only does it seem like Laura Prepon is completely miscast, but there seems to be a plethora of really bad one-liners, ginger-oriented jokes, and lame insults. All set to a laugh track to remind us that hey, this is supposed to be funny! Laugh… now! And now, because the cat's name is Ass-Face! They called it an entertainment center, guys!

Maybe with the feedback they're most likely going to get from this promo they'll start from scratch and try to save themselves — but we really, really have little hope at this point.

If you are interested, though, there are three more snippets after the jump.

Whomp, whomp!

Are U still excited for this??

Sigh.

    Well, at least you aren't the same asshole you used to be…



  2. 2

    Oh my God, that is the worst POS I have ever had the misfortune of watching. Chelsea Handler is awful and watching a terrible actress portray her is even worse. I may have to stab my brain to remove the painful memory.



  3. 3

    I liked it!!!



  4. 4

    So excited! However am disappointed in laugh track…so 90s



  5. 5

    They seriously need to re-shoot the pilot!! And re cast chelsea!



  6. 6

    Love Chelsea but the writing could be better. Hire the writers from Will and Grace, that show had the best comedy writers of the last ten years. Chelsea are you listening? P.s Prepon is miscast and so is Chelsea. Please fix before air. I really want this to be a hit.



  7. 7

    chelsea handler was actually the only funny part. the funny thing about chelsea is her timing and just the way she talks, which did not translate AT ALL. this sucks



  8. 8

    This looks awful. Plain and simple.



  9. 9

    I;m sorry… Laura Prepon is really not that great of an actress. That 70's Show is one of my all time favorites, and some of her lines — and her alone of all the main cast — were so bad I cringed. This could be good, it just needs to not be so corny, and someone that can actually pull off Chelsea's mannerisms smoothly.



  10. 10

    It actually looks funny! Too bad I don't watch TV.



  11. 11

    I used to love Chelsea. She was fresh and funny. Now she is just a badly aging alcoholic who is brutallly nasty. Sorry Chelsea, but Don Rickles did it sooooo much better than you ever could.



  12. 12

    At first I thought they were turning it into a movie. Then by watching it I thought maybe it was going to be a sitcom, judging by the shiteous laugh track. Now, post-viewing… it just looks like a really shitty SNL skit that goes on for three minutes too long even as a promo. It isn't necessarily the acting, it's the writing team. What is funny on paper isn't necessarily funny on screen just because you write it the same way. The characters are one dimensional, completely unlikeable and the dialogue is stilted. This is BAD. I love Chelsea Handler, watch Chelsea Lately and After Lately, and have all her books… unless this is retooled from the ground up, I wouldn't even admit to knowing it's on the air.



  13. 13

    Unfortunately, you're completely right about Laura Prepon being miscast. Chelsea is funny because the way she says things, and that REALLY did not translate. Probably not going to watch unless they recast the lead.



  14. 14

    I hope she's a better actress now than she was on That 70s Show. She was definitely was the worst on the show.



  15. 15

    Sooo funnnnny!
    Also, I like the sites new layout Perez! However, I can't figure out why it goes so slow and freezes….honestly don't get it..I visit about 10 gossip sites daily and this is the only one acting up..Anyhow, better luck tomorro…..I hope I hope :-)



  16. 16

    i have to admit when her roommate was doing what cats do.. i laughed verrrrry hard.



  17. 17

    I think it looks hilarious! I do think they could have done better than Laura Prepon - but man, I LOVED this book. I listened to it as an audiobook - and Chelsea narrated it herself. It was simply AMAZING.



  18. 18

    lmfao, I feel like if it doesn't have to do with Gaga, your not interested … or you critize the hell out of it.



  19. 19

    I actually think this looks pretty funny! Chelsea fans will like it, because its all the humor with like from Chelsea. The red head essay is my favorite in the book. It's hilarious. I also love that Chelsea is playing her "bitchy" sister. I'll set my DVR :)



  20. 20

    chelsea handler was the best part. she should play herself.



  21. 21

    Wrong again, Perez…this looks great.



  22. 22

    this looks…AWFUL!



  23. 23

    Re: lafave – I do like Chelsea and her books, but the actress cast as her is just awful. All of her timing is off, and she doesn't deliver her one liners as well. A lot of what is funny about Chelsea Handler is how she says things,



  24. 24

    Wow this looks pretty craptacular. Laura cannot act for shit and she's so ditzy and flakey where Chelsea is so sarcastic and makes fun of flakey girls lol. I could have actually seen this maybe work if it was a webisode like In the Motherhood, where it was shorter skits. But as a dragged out sitcom, I dunno….



  25. 25

    I don't get why Americans need laughing tracks, do you have to be told when to laugh~?



  26. 26

    I'm with ya on this one, Perezito. This one is DOA.



  27. 27

    Wow. I like Chelsea, but I can see now why she was never successful as an actress– she was terrible in those clips! And Jo Koy (who I also like) was horrible too.



  28. 28

    Well if you havent read the book asshole, then you obviously do not understand that many of the stuff shown was from the book. Perez, stop criticizing things that arent Gaga. Yes, I believe they miscast Chelsea but the stories are from the book. I wish they translated better like people have said because Chelsea has a certain way of delivering lines.



  29. 29

    what's the problem??? that was so funny! and laura prepon was great. don't know why you got all cranky about this perez…



  30. 30

    All I have to say is WHAT A MESS!!! Chelsea is so funny as herself not somebody playing her and then to top it off she is playing her sister. WTF??? This is going to fail BIG TIME!!!



  31. 31

    that looks just plain awful.



  32. 32

    I agree, Laura Prepon was soooooo not the right person to cast.



  33. 33

    Smart move not casting Chelsea Handler (I do LOVE her but I think it would have been a bad move) A show like this needs a fresh aspect and it does. I did like the video the only thing I think should have been changed is the name Chelsea, I just feel it wouldn't be all about Chelsea Handler that way.



  34. 34

    Re: Big Gurl – Me too.



  35. 35

    I think it looks good. I will def be checking it out. I always give shows a few episodes before I say they suck. I am looking forward to it.



  36. 36

    I so hate to say this but I do have to agree with Perez on this one. Laura is the wrong person for this part. Bad casting. I liked the girl in the apt that got scratched by the cat and that was it. The rest of them aren't cast right either. Need new writers and get that phoney laughing out of there. Now that I saw this if it comes on "as is" I will not be giving it a chance. Once you have seen this there is no point to watching it again.



  37. 37

    I never comment but this deserved one….THIS IS HORRIBLE …it had a few funny parts but Laura Prepon is a shitty Chelsea , way to dry and monotone ..i love Chelsea and have all her books but this is pretty crappy ….find a new actress for the part!



  38. 38

    definately not a fan of the ginger jokes - esp. since its obviously died red! Miscast and laugh track is AWFUL!



  39. 39

    HEY!!! I really liked it! I like laura playing her!!! perfect casting!!! The writing is good! U have to give it a damn chance! The whole circus tent with one pole! I mean CMON!! thats hysterical! If u ever dated a red head its true!@ HAHA no offense. I cant wait! Chelsea is a very funny woman! Either u like her or hate her. I dont think theres an in between .. kinda like howard stern… love him or hate him.



  40. 40

    That looks terrible. Anything that needs a laugh track is lame. But no doubt it will find an audience - probably the same people who watch 2 1/2 men. Gag.



  41. 41

    I thought this was good. I don't watch TV but I would watch this. It's a lil funny here n there. I love that weird girl. Bahahahaha!! She went to go get her joke book!!! Hahahaha. Idiot!



  42. 42

    That … was … painful.



  43. 43

    OMG This looks HORRIBLE. Laugh-tracks are the WORST! - And so was the writing and acting in this. I suddenly don't like Chelsea Handler as much. Cancel this heap of poop ASAP!



  44. 44

    I loved Laura Prepon but didn't love Chelsea. She's not supposed to be playing herself yet she is. That stupid dark wig can't do all the work.



  45. 45

    whoa, talk about AWFUL. i actually really like chelsea, too, but this is so stupid and offensive and idiotic i can't even imagine it on tv - it's just BAD.

  46. IVIV says – reply to this


    46

    this is a perfect reflection of Chelsea…someone telling unfunny jokes accompanied by a laugh track that reminds you you're supposed to laugh, & makes you think everyone else is laughing. If you watch Chelsea & don't force yourself to laugh just because the track is, you'll realize how extremely unfunny she is.



  47. 47

    i absolutley LLOVE chelsea!!! but holyyy shit did this look craptastic! im sorry but Chelsea should play Chelsea! not Laura, im not fimiliar with her work but she is noo chelsea and not that funny. sorry but if chelsea is gonna play her sister than she should might as well play herself



  48. 48

    Oh my God, this looks HORRIBLE…And I LOVE Chelsea, Laura, and the book. I don't even know how they did this.



  49. 49

    Damn!! I was really excited about this!! I love the book and Chelsea wasn't that bad. Laura Prepon needs to be FIRED!! Why must they kill all of my love for tv comedy with crap like that?!?! It has to be better than Perfect Couples though!!



  50. 50

    I think I would like it better if there wasn't a laughing track. Also, yeah I agree that Laura just isn't delivering the lines in a "Chelsea" kind of manner.



  51. 51

    I actually like laura prepon as chelsea, I think that may be the best casting choice on the pilot.
    Chelsea as sloane = bad choice
    Joe Choi, choy? (Whatever, the asian dude with the veneers)= bad choice
    etc. etc.
    Recast it with better actors, take out the lameness of it, make it appear more real and less "comedy".
    all of the one liners and what not, are not necessary. It seems like it's trying so hard to be funny, when really the implicit comedic factor of the stories is what is funny about the book and about chelsea's humor. So get rid of the lame, play up the stories.
