'Are You There, Chelsea?' (NBC Wednesday., Jan. 11).

Laura Prepon plays comedian Chelsea Handler as a barmaid in this sitcom that omits the words "Vodka" and "It's Me" from the title of the book it's based on. Handler plays her own more sober sister, handily. There is some moral core that anchors the sex and the drinking; at least half of the jokes are funny, and the rest are at least half funny.
