chelsea handler debuts to ok ratings

Sorry Chelsea, but it was all about ABC last night!

Last night, Chelsea Handler's new NBC comedy Are You There, Chelsea? premiered with a 2.3/6 rating in adults 18-49, and a total of 6.4 million viewers.

In more impressive news, ABC's The Middle landed a 3.0/9 rating and 9.5 million total viewers. Suburgatory also did well for ABC, bringing in a 2.9/8 rating and 8.9 million viewers.

Modern Family also did REALLY well with a 5.1/13 rating, and 12.3 million total viewers!

Sounds like it's going to be tough for Chelsea to compete with these other Wednesday night shows, but who knows? Maybe more people will tune in next week!

What do U think? Is Chelsea Handler's new show going to be all right???

    i'm sure people think she's funny, but i'm not one of them. show was unfunny but sometimes they need some time. seinfeld wasn't so good at first. laura pre looks pretty though.

    Surprise, surprise, Perez is bashing Chelsea Handler. Don't be jealous she's successful for doing what you think you're good at…



  3. 3

    How did your show do Mario. Oh! that's right.

    She sucks, that is why she is doing bad. Remember she only has a show because she used to date the CEO of E. She is a loud mouthed, rude liberal. Not funny at all.

    Chelsea's Aborted Baby #1 "Mommy, don't kill me; it's my body too"

    Chelsea's Aborted Baby #2 " Give it a rest #1; you wouldn't want that evil bitch for your mother"

    I really liked the script (there are some really funny lines) and the characters are great (chelsea's virginal, cat-befriending roommate is wonderful) but the acting came across weird. It seemed forced and amateurish. Like they were always barely stopping themselves from looking into the camera and weren't always sure how to play a scene.

    HORRIBLE, so forced…Chelsea is not an "actress".

    I don't find her funny or entertaining at all. I just find her annoying.

    Re: My Cheating Huband is Under the Patio – I don't blame the " cheating " husband. You are evil, huh? What a sick line of thinking, if one can call that thinking. Creep!

    I thought it was funny but I think they made a huge mistake in the casting for the character Chelsea. Laura Prepon is not what I imagine Chelsea in her younger years. Not that i don't like her as as actress, but I think she will be the reason the show gets cancelled. Chelsea's books are off the wall funny, laura Prepon, not so much and kinda dull.

    I don't find Chelsea to be very funny. She's good at being mean, but since when does mean equal funny? Perez is a perfect example of that! Granted, some of the comedians on Chelsea Lately are funny, but she herself, hardly is. I remember when she hosted the VMA's; she had me begging for Russell Brand!

    I didn't see the premiere of her show on NBC, but I did catch one of the two billion commercials they showed promoting it. While, I still didn't think the show looked funny, it did look cute. However, I am confused as to why they are giving the "sister", played by Chelsea, all the "funny" punchlines, when Laura Prepon is suppose to be "Chelsea", yet she seemed like she was more of the supporting character.

    Re: My Cheating Huband is Under the Patio – That is sick! While I am no fan of Chelsea, I applaud her for being smart enough to realize that motherhood was not for her. There are far too many women who have babies just because they can!

    I would have watched, but forgot to schedule it on my DVR.
