"Chelsea Lately" can be referred to as a successor or replacement of the "The Chelsea Handler Show". The show is based nearly around the same premise, where comedian Chelsea Handler spoofs celebrities, TV, movies, news, while dishing out her personal views on current events, while letting the public participate by phone, e-mail, or by text message. Just like "The Chelsea Handler Show", each episode of "Chelsea Lately" is an half-hour long. The show airs every weeknight on the "E!" network.
