More information to fill the lists for cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. And there has been tons of news for these two lists I´m doing. In this case, bad news for Chelsea, since NBC cancelled Are You There, Chelsea? after its first season.
The show, Inspired by the best-selling books from actress/comedian Chelsea Handler, “Are You There, Chelsea?” follows the exploits of the 20-something Chelsea (Laura Prepon, “That ‘70s Show”), an opinionated and unapologetic young woman who lives life to the fullest as a cocktail waitress, friend, daughter, sister and sexually dynamic “advanced drinker.”
Chelsea’s life revolves around her work at Jerry’s Ultimate Sports Bar in New Jersey, where she is surrounded by an eclectic group of friends and co-workers, including: Rick (Jake McDorman, “Greek”), the handsome bartender; Olivia (Ali Wong, “Breaking In”), a fellow cocktail waitress and Chelsea’s best friend since childhood; and, Todd (Mark Povinelli, “Water for Elephants”), the bar back who is always ready with a quick comeback. Chelsea and Olivia have recently moved in with Dee Dee (Lauren Lapkus, “The Middle”), a sweet and somewhat sheltered young woman who could be considered the polar opposite of Chelsea. And then there’s Chelsea’s dad, Melvin (Lenny Clarke, “Rescue Me”), a man with a big personality and a big heart… and all too often – a big mouth.
But even though it was based upon Handler´s best seller; the adaptation lacked in oomph, and audiences weren´t too keen on it, and NBC cancelled Are You There, Chelsea?.
