Chelsea Lately: E! Series Ending on August 25th

Chelsea Lately TV show endingAs expected, it’s the end of the road for Chelsea Handler’s late-night series Chelsea Lately. E! has decided to end the show after seven seasons. The hour series finale will air on August 25th.

Leading up to the finale, E! will air a month-long farewell that will spotlight the show’s seven-year run.

Handler has been vocal about her unhappiness on E! recently and the show’s ratings have slid more than 30% in the past year.

E! president Suzanne Kolb said, “We are very proud of Chelsea Lately’s long-running success and the unique space that the series carved out in late night television… Chelsea brought a distinct voice to late night with her acerbic wit and fearless commentary and we look forward to providing fans with a memorable send-off that lives up to that tradition.”

Handler’s contract expires at the end of 2014. She said, “I myself am more surprised than anyone that I was able to hold down a job for seven years, and it was a fantastic seven years. I will always look back at my time on E! as most people look back at their time in college. I’m glad I went.”

What do you think? Are you sorry that Chelsea Lately is ending? Would you watch handler on another talk show?

She can not talk to guests in any interesting fashion most of the time.
Her jokes and MOST of her round table guests I do find very funny. I was happy to see so many of them appear on other comedy series, so their exposure on Chelsea’s show did help them along.

Started watching this year and though she has a wit to her, she also hits every trend favored by liberal Hollywood. After several months of listening to her and her minions preach about the virtues of liberalism, the show became boring.
