Chelsea Handler, host of Chelsea Lately” has announced her plan to leave E! according to Salon on March 31. Chelsea claims that once her contract is up she will be switching jobs. It has been revealed that she is one of two stars to be switching jobs after asking for more money. Josh Elliott from ABC is the other star that plans to head to NBC.
Chelsea Handler is one to speak freely and does not have any care on whom she might be offending. The probable cause of her raise being denied by E! is the dip in audience views. Chelsea Handler is currently the only woman working in late night and generally has more of a “female” audience.
The public has been seen to favor white male comedians including Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel. The jokes Chelsea Handler tells are most of the time at the expense of famous women, which is not everyone’s taste in comedy. One of the things that makes Chelsea Handler stand out from the rest is her take on pop culture. Chelsea takes pop culture as a serious matter and approaches the subject as a very informed fan. It has not been revealed yet where Chelsea Handler is going once her contract with E! is up.
