Chelsea Handler has a late-night talk show again, but there's no need to watch it at night. You can watch it during breakfast, on your lunch break, or at prime time, if you're feeling especially rebellious. Thanks to the streaming magic of Netflix, Chelsea is a talk show that is freed from the temporal constraints of a time slot, and that's not the only way the show is attempting to reinvent the creaky late-night wheel.
After watching the first two episodes of the show, which debuted on Wednesday at midnight PST and will drop new episodes weekly on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, it's clear that Handler has large ambitions for her self-titled gabfest. While not all of her jokes land and some of the more heady concepts might fall away as it settles into a groove, there are still ways this show stands out in the late-night crowd.
