The 52-year-old comedienne and actress slammed the series on Twitter on Monday, tweeting, "The Lindsay show is a tragedy - on every level. I hope one day she gets sober for real and watches these episodes - n sees what we all do [sic]."

The former Jersey Shore star will be joined by members of his family in The Sorrentinos, an eight-episode program commissioned by TVGN, formerly the TV Guide Network, and is described as a "docu-comedy."
The show will feature Mike, his mother Linda and siblings Melissa, Frank and Marc and the reality star - who checked into rehab to be treated for an addiction to prescription drugs in 2012 - says it will focus mainly on his efforts to establish an ongoing TV career, as well as his attempts to stay clean.

Oprah Winfrey is taking a self-help show on tour.
The media mogul will go on the road this autumn for two-day arena events called Oprah's The Life You Want Weekend.
The show will see Oprah, 60, take to the stage on a Friday night, and the following day a host of people who have featured on her talk show or her OWN network will also join the discussions, with Iyanla Vanzant, Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert and Pastor Rob Bell among those who will appear at each of the eight cities on the tour. Additionally, author Deepak Chopra will be an occasional guest.
"It's about living the life you want, because a great percentage of the population is living a life that their mother wanted, that their husband wanted, that they thought or heard they wanted," Oprah said.
The tour will begin in Atlanta, Georgia, across the first weekend in September. And those wishing to attend the shows will have to pay out quite a sum, with ticket prices starting at $99 and rising to a staggering $999 for a chance to meet Oprah.
Homeland actor James Rebhorn has died at the age of 65.
The star - best known for playing Frank Mathison, the father of intelligence officer Carrie Mathison in the hit TV drama - has sadly passed away from a long battle with skin cancer, TMZ reports.
James is said to have died in his home on Friday night after his condition "drastically worsened" over the past weeks.
Aside from starring opposite Claire Danes in Homeland, the actor will be remembered for his roles in big Hollywood blockbusters, including Scent of a Woman alongside Al Pacino and playing Secretary of Defence Albert Nimziki in Independence Day. James began his career in the 50's and notched up parts in multiple TV shows including Third Watch, Law & Order, Boston Legal, 30 Rock and The Good Wife, as well as playing Reese Hughes on White Collar.
Katie Holmes is in talks to launch her own reality show.
The Don't Be Afraid of the Dark star has reportedly been plotting to reinvent herself as America's next domestic goddess in the vein of fellow actress Gwyneth Paltrow and is considering showing her life on the small screen.
"Katie admires how Gwyneth Paltrow has carved out a foodie career. She's hoping this might be a great new direction for her. A number of prominent cable networks are interested in the show, which will see Katie learning to make different dishes, as well as concentrating on catering for children," a source said.
The report comes after Katie, 35, posted pictures of herself with her designer pal Zac Posen learning how to make fresh pasta at Mario Batali's New York cookery school, Eataly. It is thought Katie was getting advice from the top chef about her new show, especially since she only started to experiment in the kitchen two years ago.
True Detective may be one of HBO's hottest shows right now, but Community stars Joel McHale and Jim Rash aren't so sure that everyone truly understands what Matthew McConaughey (Rust) and Woody Harrelson (Marty) are saying in the cop drama.
For a short segment on McHale's satiric E! talk show, The Soup, the comedian slips into McConaughey's role while Rash pulls of his impression of Harrelson on the new series. In recreating key scenes, the pair not only exaggerate the characters' southern accents but also spout some nonsensical dialogue, a crack at the show's lines rich that are rich with metaphors.
Regardless of whether or not folks can understand what Rust and Marty are saying every Sunday night, it doesn't seem to be hurting viewership!

WWE Superstar Fandango wants to be a contestant on Dancing with the Stars.
The 32-year-old wrestler is a fan of the program and if the opportunity arose to compete on the ballroom show he'd jump at the chance. Fandango - who uses ballroom dance moves in the ring and is always accompanied by his "dancing partner" Summer Rae - first got into the series when fellow WWE Superstar Chris Jericho competed on it in 2011. When asked if he'd like to compete on the series, Fandango told BANG Showbiz, "I would like to give it a go, I just need the right partner - maybe a lingerie model! I've watched Dancing with the Stars, I watched when Chris Jericho was on it, I think it's cool. It's always cool to see the stars - whether they're a football player or an actor, an actress, a model, whatever - put into that situation of crunch training to try and win the show. How they deal with the pressures and their egos of not being really good at it is interesting to see."
Leah Remini is to star in her own reality TV show.
The Kings of Queens actress, who quit Scientology last year, has been given 12 half-an-hour episode slots by TLC for her untitled program, which began filming today.
"Leah is a no-nonsense, hard-working, relatable mum, wife, daughter, and sister. Her sharp humor and unfiltered family are a perfect match for the network," said Nancy Daniels, TLC's manager.
The 43-year-old star will be joined by her husband Angelo - to whom she has been married for 10 years - and their feisty nine-year-old daughter Sofia, who "isn't afraid to keep her parents in check." The cameras will also capture Leah's opinionated mother, Vicky Marshall, unconventional father, George Remini, and her sister Nicole, who all talk in a secret coded language. There will also be cameo appearances from Leah's housekeeper and personal assistant, and Sofia's impatient British nanny.
Lindsay Lohan feels like a "prisoner."
The 27-year-old star left rehab over seven months ago, following the completion of court-mandated treatment, and began working on documentary series Lindsay for Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, but in the first trailer (seen after the jump!) for the show she's seen breaking down as she admits she feels trapped by the cameras.
"I don't want them following me to an AA [alcoholics anonymous] meeting," she said, sitting in her apartment with a companion. When asked if she ever feels like a prisoner, she added, "Yes, all the time."
The Mean Girls actress opened up about her wild past and claimed she's not interested in partying anymore as she's already done everything there is to do. "There's nothing left in a having a drink for me. What's left in that feeling? Nothing. There's no party that I haven't gone to, there's no person I haven't hung out with. There's no situation I haven't been exposed to," she explained.
CNN has canceled Piers Morgan Live.
The news network have confirmed the nightly show - which was previously known as Piers Morgan Tonight - is coming to an end after over three years, though the exact date of the final program is yet to be determined. The British presenter told the New York Times newspaper he and CNN president Jeff Zucker had discussed the future of the program last week and decided to cancel it following "painful" ratings, which he believes is due to a failure to "connect" with American people.
