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.

Chelsea Handler is a pig, and there is nothing funny about her. She is just gross. I will keep my Netflix account as long as they don't try to shove that skank and her show down my throat.

She's about as funny as Garafolo or Mayer.....full of political barbs and name calling but no substance. Chewy was such a boring fixture that I couldn't stand it anymore. Please don't put her in movies anymore....it's really irritating to watch a good movie and watch her ruin it all with her terrible acting chops.

She just isn't funny. She just happened to screw the right guy for her millions. She just isn't funny, bottom line.

To each your own. I watch her show nightly. She has really good comedians on with her. Chewey I'm not so fond of but he rarely speaks so that ok.

She would had failed big time. Her humor is not for middle America. Craig Ferguson would had been the correct fit. To be honest I don't know why this guy is still Pres of CBS. Gives his wife any show she wants.
