OMG, is anyone watching Chelsea Lately's new sitcom? It's hilarious! It looks like Ms. Lately's got another hit on her hands.
Are you there, grammar queens?
I am his Chelsea, I am her Chelsea, but I am not their Chelsea.
...it's me, Nola.
Why don't the publicists even try to hide themselves?
Another one whose fame I can't understand. I remember watching her first show on E! around 2007 and it was a fun way to pass the time, but how did she become this mega celebrity? I put her in the same category as Andy Cohen, Ellen, Matt Lauer, and Piers Morgan in that TV executives love them, a lot of people like to watch them, but they bore me to tears with the same schtick.
While OP's typo is admittedly hilarious, it doesn't change the fact that the show's title is awkward. It stems from Chelsea's book "Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea," so changing the title to fit "network standards" makes it seem like Chelsea is talking to herself or something (and obliterates the Judy Blume in-joke behind the book title).
She can get wearying but her show can be a perfect 22 minutes depending upon her panel and her guest. It's up there with The Soup and Fashion Police for instant gratification.
Anyone else pick up on OP's thinking her name is Chelsea Lately?
How can we be watching this when it hasn't even aired yet, not even on the East Coast? Bizarre.
I thought it was hilarious! The perfect solution to get over the Wednesday hump. And it's a great fit for Whitney. Two smart women, two smart comedies. Wednesdays have never looked hotter! What more could you ask for?
another publicist weighs in
You're funny, r10.
I've always been attracted to Chelsea. Haven't seen the show, but I'm sure it's good.
Um, OP was clearly parodying a publicist post. Those of you who think it's real don't know how to read or have any concept of irony, do you?
I don't know if the title was changed because of network standards or just because the original title was so insanely long, but both are awful names for a TV show.
I think Chelsea Lately is sometimes amusing, but my first exposure to her was in those E! 101 specials and she was completely unfunny in every single one of her appearances. The only reason E! was determined to make her happen was because she was fucking the network president.
She must be lying about her age, right? Either that or she is the most haggard-looking 36-year-old I've ever seen.

Seriously? Wow. Time for remedial grammar class.
The new NBC president is Bob Greenblatt who is gay and is probably the reason why we have new shows like Smash(musical),gay favs Chelsea,Whitney and the the campy Munsters remake directed by Bryan Singer.
Her name is Chelsea Handler! Not Chelsea Lately!
In my opinion, every new show which features female leads tries to be the new Ab Fab but doesn't have the wit, especially the self-deprecating humor toward the lead characters.
Why do the broadcast networks still insist on copying Friends almost two decades later? They just can't seem to move on from the "young urban singles" formula even though everyone else has. I guess all of the innovative free thinkers are pitching their shows to cable these days.
Just gave this thing a shot. If you've been wondering why NBC is trailing Fox in the ratings, you now have an answer.
That Whitney chick is officially the worst actress to ever have her own show. She makes Chelsea handler look like Streep.
Is she funny in this one?
The star of this show, Laura Prepon, is a Scientologist.
Truly an awful debut. Very disappointing.

I used to know that, but at some point I completely forgot.
I love how smart R11 thinks she is.

Well R14, that's an interesting view except that the E! network has twice renewed her contract since they broke up - years ago - the 1st time to the tune of 10 M and the 2nd time, just a few months ago, for even more, I'm sure.
Face it ya li'l green-eyed monster, she's an asset to the E! network because she delivers the numbers in a key demographic. Get over it.
That Mother Jones review - which is critical of the entire trend of new sitcoms featuring young women as the central character - is pretty rich coming from a MAN.
I'm no one's Chelsea.

Wow, a Chelsea Handler fan. Now that's pathetic.

If the OP is an example of parody or irony, we might as well just get rid of the W&W feature. Illiterate and moronic is now considered witty?
Am I whose Chelsea?
I'm my own fuckin' Chelsea, thank you!
I get Chelsea Lately and Chelsea Handler mixed up all the time.
They do look similar.
WHITNEY is horrible.
Everyone I know who has seen it has nothing good to say about it.
R35 is the fucking worst. And oldest.
The new show was preempted here because of a basketball game but that Whitney show is unwatchable. That girl is fucking annoying and now that she has a show I hate her parents for not drowning her at birth.
