Les Moonves

Congrats to Netflix ...

Chelsea's Just Too Raw for CBS

062014_moonves_launchIt sounds like Chelsea Handler was never in the mix to replace David Letterman or Craig Ferguson ... because CBS head honcho Les Moonves says her comedy isn't a great fit for broadcast TV.

Moonves was leaving E Baldi in Beverly Hills on Thursday when our photog asked him for his opinion about the news Handler was going to host a talk show for Netflix starting in 2016.

The always honest Moonves said he thought the move was great for Chelsea because her "material will fit Netflix better" than it would on broadcast television.

Sounds like a win for everyone involved.

She's ugly as sun AND unfunny and won't last even on Netflix. She only gets these gigs because she sleeps with CEOS

Personally, I prefer this man over say....Obama. I guess It shows leadership is something your born with not brough into. Respect due. This gentleman has it and deserves it. He has always been a classy dude. Like him.

I have a love/hate feeling for her. I watch her show and at times I enjoy her....but she is very raw and doesn't think before she speaks. I agree that network TV is not for her...but she does belong somewhere.

I'm amazed she lasted as long as she did. Her snarky attitude/humor wore thin for me very quickly. And I also have a minimal tolerance for alcoholics.

Stupid whore. Being a drunken slut is really funny and edgy.

I used to watch her show, until she jumped the shark. Too much politics and not funny enough. I am glad she found a home.

When she first came out, I really liked her. But I quickly went from like, to bored, to finding her incredibly irritating. She is definitely a small doses person.

Chelsea Handler is probably the biggest hack in comedy.. right up there with Dane Cook. She's not funny at all.

Her entire act is basically
-She's a drunk
-She sleeps around

That's pretty much it. CBS made a great move not hiring that hack.
