Chelsea Handler Show Slips In Ratings

Is ANYONE watching TV on Wednesdays anymore?!?

Network ratings have been SLIPPING to the lowest they’ve been all season for quite a number of shows!

Sitcoms like Whitney, ABC’s The Middle and Suburgatory as well as Criminal Minds and even Modern Family were all down considerably in the ratings this week!

Then there’s Chelsea Handler's Are You There, Chelsea? which not just slipped, but PLUNGED 33 percent while losing 20 percent of its total audience.

Wow!!!

That is so not good. What is going on here??

Do U watch Chelsea's show?? Thoughts?

    I've watched it, and found that it has already run its course. Same types of scenarios and jokes over and over again.

    Where I live, the weather's been gorgeous for this time of year. I know my friends and I aren't home often in the evenings anymore, because we're out enjoying the mild weather. Perhaps above average temps in a lot of the midwest (and other areas of the country) has something to do with not as many people being home at night watching tv. Of course, I've never watched any of the shows listed, so I could be wrong.

    Chelsea Handler is a pretty woman. She would be even better looking if she toned down the brassy blond. But she is not funny at all. Not even remotely. How the hell she got a TV show as a comedienne is one huge perplexing mystery. I really think it may have started as some kind of bizarre joke and for whatever reason it just stayed on the air. Maybe people watched it because they kept on thinking it was supposed to be funny? They were waiting for a funny part?

    You are funnier than her Perez. Her late night show is reliant on the other comedians to survive. I never laugh at her jokes. It is really bad when most of your jokes are just about sex and drugs. I have done neither and can poop out jokes like that. Why did they make that pretty girl play her in the other show?

    I watch her show every Wednesday night and think its hilarious! Not sure why nobody else finds her humor funny. Some of the inside jokes on that show, mostly about sex, crack up my whole household! Thank you for giving me a reason to turn my TV on, on Wednesdays!

    Chelsea's Aborted Fetuses "Mommy, why did you abort us? We were Alive…."

    I am a huge Chelsea Handler fan, and own and have read all her books a thousand times. I tuned into are you there chelsea? for the first episode to check it out just to show support to Ms. Handler and I was very much disappointed. First of all, The storylines are way funnier in the books. Second, the casting choices are HORRIBLE. Not one of those actors are cut out for a comedy. I know Laura Prepon was in a comedy show a few years back, and she was NEVER funny. She has no idea how to deliver lines and does not have a clue on how to portray Chelsea's amazing comedic timing. I'll stick to After Lately and Chelsea Lately

    You guys are all crazy!!! Whitney is HALARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chelsea she is funny the show is alittle of the same every week but still good. The only thing I wish is that she was doing the main role.

    I watched the first episode of Are You There Chelsea and was NOT impressed, but stuck with it because I like Chelsea Handler. And you know what? I'm glad I did. It has some really funny moments, and I hope it will get picked up for a second season so it can find its legs and run. Think back to how Friends changed in season 2. Hopefully this will get a chance. Admittedly, one or two episodes have been below par, but on the whole it's a good, decent show. It's even better when Sloane makes an appearance. She's such a bitch you can't help but love her!

    It's pathetic.

    Good. The only good show in the listing is Modern Family and not even that episode was all that great.

    I have a prediction about what's ultimately going to happen to Chelsea's career, long-term. She's on her way to "Brett Butler"-ville. Her friendship with BFF, Jennifer Anniston, will end badly because of crassness, alcoholism, and big mouth. Shortly thereafter, Reese Witherspoon will follow suit because her "people" will advise her that having Chelsea as a BFF is not a good look for her image. Besides, Reese is a good mom and new wife. She's not going to have time to hang out with Chelsea getting drunk and making the cover of rags for all the wrong reasons. If Chelsea was funny, I'd say there was hope for her. But, I'm sorry. . .SHE'S NOT FUNNY!!! The concept of her show is good, but she's the weak link. Her vocabulary is limited. She's not smart-funny. She's crude-not-so-funny. I think that someone on her staff will one day either sue her. She's so insulting to them, especially Joe Choi (I think that's his name). Whenever he's on the panel, I cringe because she goes after him every time and doesn't let up. And, it's not funny stuff. It's always about him being gay (he's not). You can look at his face and tell that it bothers him. You can tell that he doesn't like her, but she's his boss. Her alcoholism will be her downfall. That rich guy that she's dating will never marry her. He's good looking and rich. What does he want with a 40 year old alcoholic who doesn't want to have children?

    The show is awful. Not as bad as Whitney but still awful. I do watch The Chelsea Handler show but like someone else said, its only funny because of the other comedians. I usually flip the channel when the panel is over.

    Chelsea,

    Time to get back down on your knees.

    Signed,
    The President of NBC Programming

    Hey, it worked at E! Start sucking, Chelsea.

    Re: Mozitas – I agree. It's not funny like the books and it's kinda boring. I love Chelsea and I think she's hilarious but I don't like the show.

    Of course people are around on Wednesdays. We're not beamed up aboard some spaceship on those nights (to my knowledge anyway). We're all avoiding these horrible, monotonous, generally unappealing and UNfunny shows. That's all. As for Chelsea Handler? She's a one-note performer. And that note is sour. Her own program is a b*tch mess of unfunny, repetitiveness. And the sitcoms she's attached to just aren't clever and even worse - they're just not humorous. Why do vanity celebs think that everyone should be watching simply because they're on television or worked some contract to be on tv shows? Their egos are always bigger than their ratings if anyone notices.

    Chelsea Handler is the most overrated comedian in Hollywood. Have never laughed even once to what she has to say.

    I dont care enough about the other shows to comment but I will about Chelsea's new show. I was tuning it because I was excited about there being a sitcom with the same humor from her books..yet the only character that makes the same jokes/witty snarky comments is Chelsea herself playing Sloane. I dont understand why they dont let or have "chelsea" (Laura) making those jokes or comments. The one thing I liked about her in the books is that she had a dry sense a humor and thought and said and did things we all wish we had the balls to say or do..yet they make her character into some "funny" ( insert literal finger quotations ) lovable character instead of the sarcastic b*itch I was looking forward to seeing. If they can get the characters right (the dad should be an A**hole not some dumb drunk) ( Dumb Dumb should be socially clueless and prude as they have her but not so HAPPY all the time ) etc..hopefully it does get renewed for a 2nd season but they really need to fix the casting choices and how they have laura playing chelsea..

    Good, that makes sense since she's so obnoxious.



  21. 21

    I love how she likes to befriend good girl images to diffuse how vulgar and nasty she is.



  22. 22

    She's just not funny
    and her talk show has become so political, no longer relevent



  23. 23

    SHe is a foulmouth unfunny tramp. She slept her way into a show . A friend had tickets to see her and I had never even heard of her but we went. I stay about 10 minutes. Her so called humor is what you call filth. Every word out of her mouth is Fk CT and the rest of her gutter talk SHe cuts down children and people she don't know and never will because anyone with any morals wouldnt be caught dead with this pos. I was shocked when I saw Reese and ANniston hanging with her and all respect I had for them went out the window . She and Joan Rivers and JOand Rivers kid all belong in the same place the gutter.



  29. 29

    Everytime I'm watching E! and her show comes on after what I'm watching is over I rush for the remote. I can't stand her or her show .The last thing I want to do is give the show ratings. Reese Witherspoon is my favorite actress, but why the hell does she hang out with such trash?

    Personally, when I first saw Chelsea's show in college I thought she was obnoxious. The girls who liked her were obnoxious girls themselves so I figured, figures they would like that. I thought it was far from classy, not my style or humor. Then it became so popular, I was like okay maybe I should just lighten up. Someone joking about what an alcoholic they are, etc is apparently having some appeal. I think people are just coming to their senses. I wasn't sure why she was ever popular to begin with. The girl I knew in college who liked her also liked your blog. I thought the same thing about your blog in all honesty. Then you got popular and I was like OK, I should just lighten up. Reading celeb dirt(guilty pleasure for most) with your tasteless drawings on them has some appeal obviously…still haven't come to my senses on reading what you have to say.
