Chelsea Vs. Conan: Who's On Top?!

| Filed under: Conan O'BrienChelsea Handler

The answer just might surprise you.

A year ago, this post would've read very differently. Conan O'Brien was on top of the world, having just come off of his The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour and was poised to make his much anticipated return to late-night on TBS. After selling out a 30-city tour and proving the strength of Team CoCo on Twitter, no one would've guessed he would lose in the ratings to another late night host, at least not on cable.

But alas, he has. He has lost his lead and he's lost it to Chelsea Handler. According to ratings reports, Chelsea Lately surpassed Conan in ratings for the first time in June, averaging 959,000 to Big C's 851,000. That's quiet a leap forward!

But will it last? Is a new era dawning? Is vodka everyone's new cup of tea over ginger???

What are U watching this summer? Are U still on Team CoCo or are you now being handled by Chelsea???

    How about, "that's QUITE a leap forward!"

    If you want to be super positive, how about working on the spelling? Or better yet, hire a copy editor, I'm available.

    Team Handler all the way :)

    Team Chelsea all the way! The roundtable is fantastic, especially when Loni Love is on there!!

    Chelsea all the way. She's annoying, aggressive, critical, self-involved, self-depricating and I frigging love her. If you don't like Chelsea her show will annoy the crap out of you, so it seams a lot of people are liking Chelsea.

    Hey and am I the only one who kinda wishes her show was a full hour, even though I know it would be such a headache for Chelsea to have to find material to fill an hour and she might even (gasp!) have to add another celeb interview and she'd hate that! :P

    I love Conan but when he moved to 10, I had to stick with Chelsea. Sorry CoCo!

    Have stopped watching Chelsea, though I love some of the roundtable, especially Loni Love and Ross Matthews. Will sometimes fast forward to see who's on the roundtable, but that's it.

    Chelsea since day 1.

    Both can be hilarious, but Conan is definitely the better show.
    Don't get me wrong, I watch Chelsea almost every night. But it's the panelists that make it funny, not her. If she didn't have a great writing staff, the show would've been over looooong ago.



  12. 12

    I think Chelsea should get on top of Conan cow girl style…



  13. 13

    Team Chelsea! Love Ross Matthews and Heather McDonald on the roundtable!



  14. 14

    Definitely Chelsea….Conan is funny but his popularity was overstated by the underground geeks.



  15. 15

    Those are Serbs watching her show and waiting for her apology while giving her better ratings.



  16. 16

    I like Chelsea WAY better than any other night time funny person! BY FAR! So does a lot of other people I have met. Don't be a hater Perez ;)



  17. 17

    Chelsea without a doubt! She is hilarious and I love her show, I've been watching it since the pilot and will keep watching it til it goes off the air.



  18. 18

    Team Chelsea all the way. I like Conan as a person,but I never found his show the least bit funny,except for If They Mated and when he would insert the talking mouths on celebs like Clinton. Chelsea is funny as hell

    Team Coco - and please hire a proofreader.

    She's not going to be doing her show for much longer, anyway, so Conan doesn't really have anything to worry about. She, herself, has said that she won't be doing it for much longer, because she hates it. She has a couple best selling books out and has constantly been touring to promote them, so it's not shocking that she would have more viewers than he does. You can't really compare the two shows, though, they're entirely different. I loved her show up until this year, all she does anymore is put down the people at the roundtable, especially Jo Koy, who is much funnier than she is. I always wonder why she's so mean to him, it seems uncalled for. She kind of seems like a miserable alcoholic now. I'd love to see Ross Matthews get his own show, I love it when he's on there.

    Conan was in reruns in the beginning of June and a lot of Conan fans are also Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert fans, so they've probably watched them and recorded Conan instead because of all the politics in the news in the last couple of weeks. Also, Chelsea's show is 30mins while Conan's 1hour.



  23. 23

    But i do love her round table xD those are comedians



  24. 24
