Trade Roundup: ¡Rob!, Chelsea Handler

By

- Rob Schneider’s midseason sitcom has been given an inverted exclamation point and a start date. ¡Rob! will premiere on January 12. Lord help us, every one.

- Chelsea Handler signed a deal with E! that says she’ll continue hosting Chelsea Lately till 2014 and also develop and produce new shows for E! and NBCUniversal. So, even if Are You There, Chelsea? fails to captivate us all in its post-Whitney Wednesday timeslot, we’ll still see plenty more sitcoms with brassy Chelsea Handler-ish heroines. Hurrah.
