Our review:
Parents say: (2):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The show, which follows the comedic mockumentary style of the classic series, The Larry Sanders Show, highlights the performance talent of some of the seasoned comedians and comedy writers who contribute to the success of Chelsea Lately. Not surprisingly, the show features much of the deadpan humor, strong language, and references to iffy behavior that the late night talk show is known for.

The overall series is both well written and well performed, and teens will most likely be drawn to it as much as they are its parent show. But if you are not a Chelsea Handler fan, chances are that you won't find much here.
