Knowing that this show had been picked up for the 2011-12 season, I knew that I needed to read Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/books/are-you-there-vodka-it's-me-chelsea-chelsea-handler/). Having just finished the book, I'm more pumped to see how it translates to the small screen and how far the show can push the boundaries of good taste and get away with it. I hope it does well. I like Laura Prepon. who will be playing Chelsea.

Premiere date TBA.

I just noticed this posting this morning. I have not heard anything about it, except here.

Is it a fall replacement kind of show?

Since all the shows have already started, my guess is that it will be a mid-season replacement. Other than that, your guess is good as mine.

Added Episode 1: Pilot

The show has been renamed from Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea to Are You There, Chelsea? I guess the Network was uncomfortable with having a show promoting alcohol in its title.

Um, that was NOT good. I wasn't expecting much, but I certainly wasn't expecting a train wreck.  I've read a few comments over at Hulu and they say it's much better in the 2nd episode. We shall see. Personally, I see a very short series run here.

Hmmm, haven't watched it yet. Maybe I'm saving some time here?

The first episode felt like they were winging it, using the first and only take of line readings and then moving onto the next set up. I will check out episode 2 in a bit and see if it does get better.

This one was only slightly better than the first episode. The jokes just are not that funny and are being thrown out there for the sake of having something to say. The show has potential but I think I'm just gonna cut my losses here. I don't have the patience to sit through a ton of episodes before they get their sh*t together. If it comes to where there is nothing left to watch and I have some free time to kill, I may check back in and see where it's at.

Cancelled. Duh. It wasn't good enough for me, a TV  W h o r e , to even get into it.
