Are You There, Chelsea?

Critics Consensus

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

Critic Reviews for Are You There, Chelsea? Season 1

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.

Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

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

Jan 11, 2012 | Full Review…

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

Jan 11, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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

Jan 11, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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

Jan 11, 2012 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

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

Jan 11, 2012 | Full Review…

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

Jan 11, 2012 | Full Review…

The show is gleefully rude in keeping with Ms. Handler's personal style, but 8:30 p.m. seems way too early for explicit sex jokes

Jan 11, 2012 | Full Review…

"Chelsea" doesn't do anything to make the TV version of Chelsea interesting, likable or winning.
