Chelsea Lately

http://youtu.be/-GhvDGA6WGs

Piers Morgan and Chelsea Handler have carried on like an old married couple on an episode of the latter’s E! talkshow this week.

Before Handler had even sat down, she asked Morgan what he was looking at, to which he replied: “You’ve either had plastic surgery or a makeover because you look really hot today.”

“Oh, you’re so annoying,” Handler retorted. “You’re so obnoxious. You wonder why everyone hates you. I specifically covered up so you couldn’t look at me and undress me with your molester eyes.” Continue reading »

Long after CHELSEA LATELY has been shot, the audience has left and the studio is dark, new series AFTER LATELY keeps the cameras rolling as it delves into the ridiculous world of the people who make up this hit talk show.

Airing Sundays at 11 p.m. ET beginning March 6 on E!, the tongue-in-cheek 30-minute mocku-series, also starring Chelsea’s side-kick Chuy Bravo, draws upon the entirely absurd – yet absolutely real – stories encompassing the world of Chelsea (visit eonline.ca to confirm local listings). 

Also, joining E!’s Sunday night lineup this March are new series WHAT’S EATING YOU (March 13 at 8 p.m. ET), which brings viewers into the often misunderstood and frightening world of eating disorders, followed by back-to-back episodes of PRETTY WILD (March 20 at 9 p.m. ET and 9:30 p.m. ET) which delves into the world of the sexy Neiers sisters.

 

AFTER LATELY airs Sundays at 11 p.m. ET on E!

AFTER LATELY

Premieres Sunday, March 6 at 11 p.m. ET

Throughout television history, there have been shows about workplaces and shows that take viewers behind-the-scenes of hilarious, fictional television shows. However, there has never been a series showcasing the actual staff of a real, ongoing late night comedy series…until now. Getting the popular late night series CHELSEA LATELY on the air five nights a week takes a phalanx of comedians. From writing jokes to booking celebrities to developing sketch ideas, the staff is hard at work nearly 24/7.

While producing a nightly show is tough, it’s keeping on Handler’s good side and avoiding her notorious practical jokes and unsolicited meddling into their personal lives that proves to be even tougher. With Handler as the boss, this office is anything but all work and no play and the staff of CHELSEA LATELY will do whatever it takes to keep pace with Handler.

The cast of characters includes: her trusty sidekick Chuy Bravo; the slutty and sarcastic Sarah Colonna; the red-headed and uber-abused Brad Wollack; playboy comedian Chris Franjola; the will-do-anything-to-be-famous Heather McDonald; the awkwardly Awkward Jeff Wild; the malnourished hipster Johnny Kansas; the bagel-loving Steve Marmalstein; and Chelsea’s older live-in brother, Roy.

In addition to the regular cast, AFTER LATELY storylines will utilize a handful of Handler’s big-time celebrity friends, other popular roundtable mainstays and additional staff members… whether they like or not.

In the premiere episode “The List,” chaos and backstabbing ensue when the cast fight to secure a seat on Handler’s private plane to Cabo for the weekend. Friends turn into foes, groveling hits a biblical proportion and backdoor side deals are all in the works to land one of the last two coveted seats. All the while Handler basks in the glory of the deplorable lengths these people will sink to in the name of a free trip to Mexico. Additionally, several members of the staff reveal their true colors when a co-worker brings her child to work.

 

WHAT’S EATING YOU

Premieres Sunday, March 13 at 8 p.m. ET

E! brings viewers into the often misunderstood and frightening world of eating disorders with the new hour-long, six-part series WHAT’S EATING YOU. The show chronicles the extreme challenges of women and men whose lives are at risk as they battle not only their distorted body images, but also self-created, life-threatening food rituals and compulsions. As participants share their true stories of food, fear and obsession, WHAT’S EATING YOU reveals the severity of eating compulsions on levels never before seen on television.

In the series premiere “Adrienne & Danni,” Adrienne attempts to overcome her years of body dysmorphia induced anorexia after her career is put in jeopardy due to her startling appearance. Also, Danni tries to suppress her bulimic tendencies which have already cost her family over $100,000 and could ultimately cost her, her life.

 

PRETTY WILD

Premieres Sunday, March 20 at 9 p.m. ET and 9:30 p.m. ET

Get an unfiltered look at Hollywood through sisters Tess, Alexis and Gabby, whose jaw-dropping looks and unstructured upbringing make them magnets for Tinseltown’s temptations. Emerging as Hollywood’s newest socialites, the sexy sisters are ready to take Los Angeles by storm.

In the series premiere “The Arrest,” Tess and Alexis land a huge modeling gig but a knock on their door early one morning will change the life of one sister forever. Back-to-back episodes continue with “The Hearing,” where Alexis faces charges of allegedly committing a burglary targeting celebrity homes. Meanwhile, Tess is ecstatic when she is invited on a date with a pop superstar and Gabby’s world is rocked when Andrea announces that the whole family is making a big move.

E! launched in Canada yesterday with a shout out from the Queen of late-night comedy Chelsea Handler during the Canadian premiere of her talk series CHELSEA LATELY, airing Monday – Friday at 11 p.m. ET on E!.

Chelsea addressed Canadian viewers along with her sidekick Chuy who celebrated the occasion decked out in Canadian hockey gear.

Chelsea: “Why are you dressed like a hockey player?” Chuy: “Because E! is back on in Canada!” Chelsea: “And where is Canada Chuy?” Chuy: “The other side of Mexico.” Chelsea: “To celebrate E! being back on in Canada I’m coming to Toronto to perform at Massey Hall on Saturday, Dec. 11.”

Chelsea also tweeted about the E! launch in Canada: @chelseahandler: E! Is back on in canada and armenia starting tonight. I pay homage to both. What….a world.

In tonight’s episode of CHELSEA LATELY at 11 p.m. ET on E!, Flo Rida chats with Chelsea about his new album Only 1 Flo and hopefully some explanation for the state of Florida. Comedian Jo Koy, comedian Sarah Colonna and comedian Mo Mandel also appear.

CTV and Comcast International Media Group (CIMG) have partnered to bring E! Entertainment Television back to Canadian audiences.

Today, the companies announced a multi-platform program supply and trademark licence arrangement that will debut a new Canadian E! channel, formerly Star!, beginning November 29.

Dedicated exclusively to informing Canadian viewers on all aspects of the entertainment industry, E! will immediately be available in more than 6.2 million Canadian households.

One of the world’s most popular entertainment brands, E! is the #1 primary source on American television for celebrity and entertainment news and continues to rank as a top five network in the U.S. for both A18-49 and A18-34.* Targeting the female 18-49 demo, the return of E! in Canada marks the arrival of a very strong specialty brand to CTV’s industry-leading suite of specialty channels. 

“E! is a specialty brand for a specialty service. It’s a hot network that has seen dramatic year-over-year ratings growth,” said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. “The time is right to refresh our own entertainment channel so it can achieve its potential for viewers and advertisers. E! is a dynamic complement to what we’ve built with ETALK, Canada’s #1 entertainment source.”

“We’re delighted to bring E! back to audiences in Canada as we enter this new partnership with CTV,” added Duccio Donati, Executive Vice President, CIMG.  “E!’s signature content has been a long-time favourite with TV viewers in the market and the network’s robust line-up of entertainment news programming, hit reality series and red carpet coverage, complement the channel’s localized programming, as part of an E! branded 24/7 channel.”

Powered by pop culture phenoms such as KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS, CHELSEA LATELY, LIVE FROM THE RED CARPET, THE SOUP and E! TRUE HOLLYWOOD STORY, E! enjoyed its highest-rated and most-watched September ever in the U.S. 

The arrangement between CTV and CIMG will see:

· exclusive access to current programming on E!;

· exclusive access to E!’s array of digital media assets in Canada, including mobile and Video on Demand;

· a Canadian-managed website, eonline.ca, eventually featuring both E! and original digital content and allowing for integration of Canadian ad sales; and

· a commitment to create new, original Canadian programming.

 

Research indicates that an overwhelming majority of Canadian viewers are already familiar with E!, including 96% females A18-34 and 92% males A18-34. The network recently expanded its flagship series E! NEWS to a new one-hour format, while MARRIED TO ROCK, BRIDALPLASTY, and Season 3 of KENDRA will premiere on E! this November. Journalist and author Laura Ling also recently joined the network as host of the popular investigative documentary series E! INVESTIGATES. E!’s roster of popular personalities includes the Kardashians, Chelsea Handler, Ryan Seacrest, Giuliana Rancic, Joel McHale, Kelly Osbourne, Holly Madison, Kendra Wilkinson and Joan Rivers.

The channel will present 50 per cent Canadian programming throughout the broadcast year, including 40 per cent in prime time. Additional programming details regarding E!’s new schedule will be announced in the coming weeks.

CTV will utilize its award-winning promotion, marketing and communication resources to relaunch the E! brand in Canada. The company already manages Canada’s #1 specialty brands in sports (The Sports Network, aka TSN), music and youth (MuchMusic and MTV), factual (The Discovery Channel), business (BNN – Business News Network), comedy (The Comedy Network), and genre (SPACE), among others.
