    You may laugh, but you'll hate yourself afterward.

    If the writers relax their death grip on that formula and Handler stops choking the proceedings, Are You There, Chelsea? might be worth another look.

    A watered-down drink of a sitcom.

    The most puzzling thing about Are You There, Chelsea? is who exactly thought it was a good idea. Because it's not.

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

    Vulgarity and lack of taste aren't the issues here as much as a deadening single-mindedness.

    A little too raw, especially in this hour.

    I thought this new sitcom was very funny. i enjoyed the crass humor, Laura Prepon and new comer Lauren Lapkus. It is refreshing to see such diverse characters who all embrace one another. Expand

    I love this show, I watched both this and whitney . You have to have a sense of hmor and knowing chelsea and her comedy well what do you expect. Plus its a half hour show im sure you can find something else to watch for 30 mins and let us who enjoy the show have it to watch . Expand

    I absolutely love this show. Laura Prepon is hilarious in this part. I would be super upset if this show gets cancelled. I don't get it, when Charlie Sheen plays a womanizing, alcoholic he gets paid a mil an episode, and he's a real life drug addict. But when there is a character that is a promiscuous woman who drinks a lot, people are suddenly not interested. They only had half a season to be watched. They should be given at least another 10-12 episodes to establish a bigger following that I know is out there. Good luck cast and crew I'm rooting for you. Expand

    "Chelsea" is extremely entertaining and hilarious when it needs to be. If you give it a chance, it may just grow on you. Sure, it's one of the less sophisticated comedies, but that's honesty alright. Sometimes that's all you need to laugh. Expand

    Like "I Hate My Teenage Daughter", this show has mostly its funny moments, but then has some unfunny moments, which can be a problem. I really think they miscast Handler as her sister, which isn't really that funny of a character. But I must say, I love Dee Dee, she always keeps me laughing. All in all, its a funny show, but not "Modern Family" funny. Expand

    This show is not outright bad, its just 'meh' in every way. The characters are average and the jokes are mostly crap but its still vaguely likable.

    This is by far the absolute worst show I have ever seen, and I watched both episodes of The Hasselhoffs. If anything, this show demonstrates Handler's ability to exploit her brainwashed masses of drunken slutty girls. Take away the laugh track and this show is nothing but awkward setups with no actual punch line. If NBC doesn't cancel this show soon, I'm gonna Elvis my T.V. Expand
