Chelsea Handler said goodbye to E! on Tuesday night with a star-studded hourlong sendoff that drew the show’s largest audience in a couple of years.
According to Nielsen estimates, “Chelsea Lately” averaged 1.003 million viewers, including 498,000 adults 18-49 — more than 60% higher than the show’s averages for its final full week (598,000 overall, including about 300,000 in the demo).
The latenight show, whose ratings have tailed off in recent years, hadn’t drawn this many viewers since the spring of 2012. And it’s the show’s largest young-adult tune-in in more than a year.
Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, Miley Cyrus Gwen Stefani and Gerard Butler were among the many celebrities for the final “Chelsea Lately.” Handler announced in June that she would be leaving the E! show after seven years to create a latenight program for Netflix.

The final episode of "Chelsea Lately" on E! served mainly as a reminder that, no, Ms. Handler isn't actually going away. The "My Horizontal Life" author will be headed to Netflix for her next talk show venture, but she still splurged on a fantastic sendoff special that culminated in a tremendous "We are the World" type mega-song with tons and tons of guest-stars. Look around in that crowd. Our eyes detect Sandra Bullock, Kathy Griffin, Gerard Butler, Diablo Cody, Melissa McCarthy, Miley Cyrus, Joel McHale, and Tim Allen. And then a hundred or so others. But who ruled this star-studded goodbye? We picked the top five contributors. 5. Tim Gunn Even though the "Project Runway" guru spoke-sang his contribution, it was still tuneful and adorable. He's like a gay Yul Brynner up there. 4. Marlee Matlin Marlee Matlin was S-e-l-l-i-n-g that Asl translation at the right-hand corner of the screen. Pure ebullience from start to finish. »

“Is it because I’m a lesbian?” DeGeneres asks a completely naked Handler, who then acts like she had no idea DeGeneres is gay. “I thought you were married to Ryan Seacrest,” Handler replies before claiming she herself is a lesbian. “I live with a lesbian, actually, a confirmed lesbian. We have two dogs.” The argument continues until Handler insists she’s totally cool with being in a »

After seven years on E!, last night was the final episode of Chelsea Lately. It was less a bittersweet affair than a celebration, as Chelsea Handler hasn't been shy about how much she wanted to leave the network. The big climax was an especially star-studded sing-along to a parody of "We Are the World." Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus, Gwen Stefani, 50 Cent, Vanessa Hugdens, Fergie, Avril Lavigne, Gerard Butler, Kate Beckinsale, Tim Gunn, Justin Theroux, Melissa McCarthy, Allison Janney, Joel McHale, and like a zillion other people were there. Now if she can only have all these people show up to every episode of her Netflix show, we predict it will be a raging success. »

What seemed like an impossible idea before last year’s financial victory over fellow terrorism thriller White House Down is closer to becoming a reality. The Olympus Has Fallen sequel London Has Fallen just locked in a director. Fredrik Bond, who last shot Shia Labeouf drama Charlie Countryman, will marshal the madness.With Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett, Radha Mitchell and Morgan Freeman returning as Secret Service agent Mike Banning, Us President Benjamin Asher, Secret Service Director Lynn Jacobs, Leah Banning and Speaker Trumbull respectively, the sequel’s plot will see the characters headed to London to attend the funeral of our Prime Minister. World leaders from far and wide are in attendance, but it turns out that it's all a dastardly scheme to get them in one place for a mass assassination and a seismic change to the world order. Only Banning, the Prez and a distrustful MI »
Charlie Countryman helmer Fredrik Bond is said to be in talks to direct the follow-up to Olympus Has Fallen which has been named London Has Fallen. He takes over from the first movie’s director Antoine Fuqua. Bond was recently linked to a number of projects, including Pirates of the Caribbean 5.
Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman are all set to reprise their roles from the first movie, and as you can probably guess from the title, the sequel is set to bring the action to London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances.
As you might expect however, his funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the Western world, but what starts out as the most protected event on earth, turns into a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders and unleash what is described as a terrifying vision of the future. »

The 2013 blockbuster, Olympus Has Fallen, was not without its charms. Directed by Antoine Fuqua, it had a dark grittiness to it, setting it slightly apart from the standard, cookie cutter action films that essentially take the premise of Die Hard and change the setting and circumstance. Inevitably, it was a box office success, too, which meant a follow-up was immediately discussed. The sequel was already named as London Has Fallen, and now it has a director – in the surprising form of Fredrik Bond.
Bond is an unexpected choice to take this franchise forward, as he is relatively inexperienced behind the camera. He has one feature-length credit to his name – Charlie Countryman – which was not exactly an action-packed movie. However, it is Bond that is in the process of stepping up to this plate, looking to call the shots on a script whose final draft was delivered by Christian Gudegast (A Man Apart »

I was pleasantly surprised by 2013's Olympus Has Fallen. I guess going in with low expectations pays off sometimes. While it didn't break any box office records, the film did make a tidy little profit and producers decided to move ahead with a sequel.
The new film is titled London has Falllen and sees the return of Olympus' three main characters.
This time around Secret service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) finds himself in London once again protecting President Asher (Aaron Eckhart) and the Speaker of the House (Morgan Freeman) while they attend the funeral of the British Prime Minister. At some point the shit hits the fan and it's time for Banning to go into John McClane mode.
The Hollywood Reporter announced that Frederik Bond (Charlie Countryman) has signed on to direct the sequel.
London Has Fallen is set to hit theatres on October 2, 2015. »
