Chelsea Handles Conan

In one corner, we have a tall, lanky redheaded Irishman and his rotund sidekick and a roundish sidekick. In the other, we’ve got a foulmouthed Jewess and a midget. Who will win?

So far the advantage goes to Chelsea Handler (and Chewey).

Her late night talk show, “Chelsea Lately” has been consistently topping O’Brien’s TBS show “Conan” in the ratings. Handler’s program has also been winning the coveted 18-49 demographic, or at the least the part of it that still watches television live instead of the next day when you can stream it from Hulu.
