According to The Hollywood Reporter, E! Entertainment Television has greenlighted The Chelsea Handler Show, a new primetime series starring the saucy comedian. The cable channel has ordered eight episodes of the half-hour project that will feature Chelsea Handler -- the brazen Tonight Show With Jay Leno correspondent and star of Oxygen's Girls Behaving Badly -- in taped spoofs, film shorts and field remote pieces, all framed by stand-up segments of her performing before a studio audience. In her act, Handler intermixes fearlessly honest comedy, ironic riffs and self-deprecation, satirizing everything from reality TV and one-night stands to Hugh Hefner -- and his live-in ladies from the E! series The Girls Next Door -- to her own futile attempts to interview celebrities.
