Critic Consensus: Based on Chelsea Handler's bestselling autobiography, Are you there, Chelsea? tries hard, but never matches the book's caustic wit.

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (18)

The characters, including Chelsea's prissy sister (played by Handler herself), start out too one-note to qualify as must-see.

Handler is an acquired taste, but there's no particular taste that has to be acquired for this largely generic chickcom.

If it had the slightest aspiration even to have an aspiration beyond stringing wisecracks on a loop of pure attitude, it would disappear.

This whole show pretty much sucks if not power-slurps.

The whole affair is less cuttingly comic than Handler actually is.

It's a cartoon, funny when used judiciously and quickly wearisome when overdone.

Everything about Are You There, Chelsea? comes from the broad stroke book of comedy writing.

None of this was clever. And worse, none of it was especially funny.

Once the initial awkwardness of the first few minutes of the pilot subsided, I actually really enjoyed Chelsea.

If we're lucky, before long when we look for Chelsea on the schedule (though why would we?), it simply won't be there
