Chelsea Handler

Damn, she had an off night. The brilliance of her show is the way she creates her own little show-biz cocoon where she's surrounded by underlings who suck up to her. On *Chelsea Lately*, everybody's desperate to kiss her ass, from the studio audience to the nobody comedians she eviscerates on those torturous panel discussions. But on MTV, where she wasn't even one of the two hundred most famous people in the room, she looked lost, tired and slow, croaking ancient jokes about Bieber's lesbian hair, AutoTune, Gaga's fashion and MC Hammer. She was far from the worst host of all time, though--Christian Slater, Jamie Foxx, the Wayans brothers and Diddy can fight over that honor.
