Description

Chelsea Lately was an American late night comedy talk show hosted by comedian Chelsea Handler on E!. The show debuted on July 16, 2007, and was produced by Handler's production company, Borderline Amazing Productions. It was taped at Universal Studios Stage 1 in Universal City, California. On November 15, 2011, it was announced that the show's run had been extended through 2014. Handler's manager, Irving Azoff, stated that Handler will leave E! when her contract expires at the end of the year thus canceling Chelsea Lately. On October 15, 2012, Chelsea Lately relocated from the Westside Media Center Studios in West Los Angeles, a facility formerly used by E! sister network G4 to record Attack of the Show and whose set was adapted to Chelsea Lately with only background changes and the addition of audience seating, to a completely new set in Stage 1 at Universal Studios Hollywood, which had been used by The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien during its short seven-month run.When the series moved to a new studio, the opening theme was changed to a new version composed by Pharrell Williams. Original Chelsea Lately intertitle Chelsea Lately was presented in a half-hour format, and was broadcast Monday through Friday at 11:00 p.m ET/PT, although the Friday show was frequently a re-run. Chelsea Lately opens cold and Handler performed a short stand-up monologue. The routine was usually focused on a topic from pop culture or current events, and may include a video clip or other visual aid. Over the opening credits, the announcer presents the topics of discussion and the show's guest, then makes a comment about something totally irrelevant. After the open, Handler introduced the round table panel of three guests consisting of some combination of comedians, actors, or staff members. She lastly introduces the show regular, her assistant Chuy Bravo (born Jesus Melgoza) who sits in his own chair near the edge of the studio's stage. Handler then discusses the goings on in pop culture with the round table members, occasionally including Chuy whose comments are always one-liner jokes. After the round table ends, if there is a sketch in the episode, it plays next. Then, after returning from a commercial break, Handler interviews a celebrity guest (or guests) for about six minutes each show. The show then closes with either another very short monologue (essentially Handler delivering a one-liner) or with a small segment like "Fat Baby" with pictures shown for comedic value. Handler and her sidekick Chuy then usually interact with the audience as the closing credits and music plays. Handler's "assistant", Chuy Bravo, along with sitting across from the round table, often participated alongside Handler in video segments for the show. The final episode of Chelsea Lately aired on August 26, 2014. The series had one spin-off, After Lately, a behind-the-scenes mockumentary, which premiered on March 6, 2011.
