She isn't. Or at least I was under the impression that her show is scheduled to be taken off E! for that very reason.

Personally I'd rather listen to someone drag their nails across a blackboard for 30 min's than watch another episode of Chelsea Lately .

Not to sound all "change is bad", but with all the new late night hosts the only one I'm even half interested in is Colbert, who will likely be at least 25% less funny and interesting than he is on his current show.

Is she funny irl? I only know her from Archer. I mean I've seen her, she's very pretty but I don't watch those morning/afternoon yak shows. If it doesn't interfere with her Archer duties, yeah, give it to her. She has to be better than that Chandler beast.

Didn't mean to thread jack, let me get back on topic. Um, Chelsea Handler sucks hard. At least that's what all the TV execs who ran a train on her before she signed her contract said.

"Everything is an option" is Hollywood speak for "I'm desperate for the job, but playing coy, but really I'll blow everyone from the washroom attendant on up for a chance at it!"

Skip the dicking around and put Sarah Silverman on network TV.  You've already been bleeping Craig for ages.

It sounds like I'm of the same opinion of a lot of you here.  I can't stand her.  I thought she was funny at first, but the hostility and aggressiveness makes her seem like an asshole.  Oh yeah, and acting like an asshole in real life also makes her seem like an asshole.

Whose Line barely counts as a full-time show.  From everything I've heard they tape all the episodes in a short period.  And why does it seem like you're assuming she couldn't leave one or both if she got a better gig?

Didn't Tyler also host The Soup for awhile, which would be pretty similar to a late night show type of "stand up" monologue type of thing.

Yeah, Tyler does a lot of low-profile things but a network talk show would be huge for her.  Not to mention that she's hilarious and has a very charming and likable demeanor.  She's light years beyond Chelsea Handler, who always seemed to be as bored of her show as I was.
 
2014-04-29 12:05:52 PM  
As far as Chelsea's ratings:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chelsea_Lately#Ratings

They are down, but, 500k viewers is probably still pretty decent for a network like E!'s cable profile.

For similar cable comparison...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conan_(TV_series)#Ratings

Conan in 2013 was 800k, and TBS is a much higher profile cable network than E!

"Archer" probably wouldn't present too much of a problem, it's only 13 half hour (22 minutes, really) episodes a year.  Also, voice work usually doesn't take that much time.  When Lucky Yates (Dr. Krieger) was on Alton Brown's podcast he said he only works 15 minutes every couple weeks when he's working on the show.  And they record their parts individually, so it probably wouldn't be an issue for them to schedule around whatever else she was doing.

And as other people have said upthread, "Whose Line" isn't exactly a huge time commitment either.  When Drew Carey was hosting he was the star/executive producer of his own sitcom at the same time.

Julie Chen is the main host on the show and she's married to network head Les Moonves. Sarah Gilbert is also one of the show's producers.

I don't see them standing in her way.

2014-04-29 01:34:54 PM  

mjohnson71: Could she get out of the contracts? Who owns The View, Whose Line... and Archer?


It's "The Talk" rather than The View that she's on, and CBS owns it. If CBS wants her on the Late Late Show, they can easily do it.

Not to mention CBS could probably easily buy her out of the Whose Line contract if they needed to, and they might not be bothered by her doing one or two more seasons of Archer (I doubt there's any more than that), especially since it's not a terribly large time commitment.

Her or NPH would be probably the best choices amongst those thrown out there. Please god not Chelsea Handler. Her interviews are awful. She only manages to be funny on her show by having 3 or 4 other comedians around with her.

My GF and I saw her doing standup on Apr 19 in Boston and yes she is very funny. She also did a meet and greet after the show even though she was feeling sick signed her book took a picture and would not spoil who Lana's baby daddy was. :)

/it was a week before the season finale she just said you'll find out soon

Ferguson related question: Craig often does switcheroo comparison jokes with a format similar to this one:

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

My question is: is there a name for that type of joke?

Ever since Arsenio came back, I realize we kind of went through a time warp with him. It's like nothing has changed in his world view. He talks about subjects as though it's still 1990. He is really bolstering that old white man club thing with his schtick.

Has there been anyone in this thread who has admitted to being a Chelsea fan? Pretty sure everyone who has mentioned her as said something about her individually, not directed at people who actually like her. Saying we don't like Chelsea Handler and you yelling at people for liking something you don't like are 2 different things.
