I'm Sure That Show No One Heard of Was Really Popular.

I've heard the name Chelsea Handler before and remember seeing her on TV once or twice. I remember her coming across as a mouthy self important celebrity who looked like a worn out liquored up New Orleans street walker, ridden hard and long past her prime. I had no idea she was a comedian. I totally missed that. But evidently she claims to be.

I looked her up on the google and found out this is the same woman who promised to move to Spain after Trump won. Apparently, that never happened because, in a shocking turn of events, she's been hosting a talk show all this time. It's on Netflix, and if you've never met a single person who's watched it, you're not alone. 

It's probably because the vulgar, unfunny, comedian spent most of the time lashing out about politics. She hates Trump, despises Republicans, and loves posting vulgar pseudo-jokes about the people she hates on the tweeter. You could call it "constant rage". 

Anyway, the show you never heard of is going off the air.  According to the AP, Handler says she is ending her once a week Netflix talk show after two seasons in order to focus on "political activism". Handler says in a statement that she plans to devote as much time as she can to become "a more knowledgeable and engaged citizen" and take on projects that have personal significance. Quitting a once-a-week talk show to "focus on activism," absolutely reeks of an excuse. I say more likely she has no ratings and is going off to rehab to dry out.......or maybe just hang out at Chappaqua and get blasted on Vodka shots with Hillary. 

It should be pointed out that services like Netflix never release ratings information. They don't talk about how many times a show is streamed, and they don't like to get into discussions about budgetary matters. But there's one truism in the entertainment industry, it's that no one walks away and leaves money on the table.

Regardless of her reasons, it's nice to know there's one less vulgar, unfunny and unattractive left-wing talk show host out there.
