Ellen

Show Summary

Ellen, which was titled "These Friends of Mine" during its first season, is comedy about the life of a young woman by the name of Ellen Morgan - a neurotic, thirty-something, bookstore employee who tries to get by life in dealing with her many random foils and follies (and not to mention her annoying and overbearing parents, Lois and Harold). Thanks to her friends, however, among them including the bubbly redhead Paige, insecure photographer Adam, her unsure-of-himself cousin Spence, coffee shop guy Joe Farrell, and the critical and obnoxious Audrey, Ellen is able to find the security, and the sanity, to get through her less than normal every day life. The show can be described as a combination between popular sitcoms Seinfeld and Friends, blending a perfect mix of comedy and situational humor with the drama and excitement of every day issues and life in the "real world".

  • Thanks for making a very special lady with dementia laugh for the first time

    7.5
    I have a very special family member that was always a very hard worker, a single Mom of one son, very social, and very family oriented. Unfortunately she began having memory issues. It was learned she had dementia that became so severe she is now in a nursing facility. Though, she recognizes me, she doesn't remember my name, but that's okay, I have come to accept that and only want to bring her as much happiness under the circumstances. I make her a home cooked meal and try to time it to arrive about one hour before your show begins. The first time I didn't know what to expect for her attention span isn't what is was. Though, at first it began with smiling, which was so encouraging to see her show emotion. So, I have made it a daily "Must do" to always insure she is in front of her TV when your show is on. That small smile has turned into an occasional laughter, which Ellen, it's priceless. For someone so very dear to me to see her show emotion at your jokes is truly so very appreciated. Blessings, Pattymoreless
  • I'm a stressed out mom!

    Dear Ellen, I'm your biggest fan, you are a amazing person. You help people everyday. I've recently noticed that the walls in my home are cracking in all corners and everywhere. I'm not in the greatest health, heart problems, unstable ankles, high blood pressure and worried sooooo much about things. My daughter and I lived in the house for seven years along with her fianc and my German Shepard dog Sheba. The house is sliding away, the foundation. It's very scary! I have come to stay at a friends house, daughter thinks her and Jesse are going to do this all. Money and time are hard to do. I tx and talk to her everyday to make sure everything is fine. At night I stress not knowing if I will hear from her because of house. I want to go back home, but can't until it is safe. I only have my daughter and her fianc and my Sheba. Please help me if you can. I just want to go back to my house in Lawrenceville and take care of my health issues and see my daughter. Bless you! Take care, I'm trying! Thank you for listening!

  • ELLEN PLEASE READ MY STORY!!!!!!

    10
    Hey Ellen !! Before I tell you my story I just want to say that you are absolutely amazing!! I watch your show all the time and when I see the things that you do for people I always find myself with a smile on my face, and seeing you help these regular everyday people who are having troubles made me realize that maybe you could help my mother. My name is Kristy Sharp and I am 16 and I live in The Central Coast, New south Wales in Australia. Ever since I was born my mum (Cindy Morris), has been a single parent. She has raised my brother (Dale Sharp), and I all alone and has always had money troubles. But the past few years her world has just been turned upside down. On the 19/9/2011, she lost the love of her life and I lost my step-dad. He was such an amazing man, they met when they were only 16 and we're completely head over heels in love with one another right up until the day he died. She has never been the same since, she is grieving so much and can't seem to get over it at all, its two years later and she's the way she is, makes it feel like it happened last week. She puts a smile on for us but I can see right through it. She was slowly getting herself back on her feet when she lost her father, she was absolutely heartbroken and a week after that she lost her grandfather and that just pushed her down and she isn't coping at all. She is a nurse and has to do overnight just to make enough money to pay the bills and even that's not enough, she struggles with money so much and is very stressed out. She can't sleep so she's tired all the time which puts her in a worse mood. And to top it all off her confidence in herself is below 0. She doesn't see what I see, I think she is the most beautiful person in this world, one problem and the main reason she has no confidence is her teeth. Earlier in 2013, my dog was playing around with her and accidently knocked a lot of her teeth out and she has no money to go and get them fixed and it has been affecting her so much she refuses to go out cause she's worried what people think and every time we go out she stresses out on how she looks even though she always looks amazing to me and my brother. She can't eat either with her teeth because it hurts her so much. Ellen you don't understand how heartbreaking it is to see her like this, struggling with money troubles, having no confidence, in pain due to her teeth, constantly drained from working too much and all that happening whilst she's grieving so much she shouldn't have to be going through this. I'm so worried that one day its all going to get too much for her and one day she may not be around and I couldn't handle that. She is the most amazing woman you'll ever meet and for her to meet you would make her so happy! She loves you so much and so do I. I don't know if there's any way in the world you can help my mum get back on her feet and make her stress go away so she can focus on getting her life together again, I just want to make her happy. She doesn't know that I'm asking you for help and I think it would be the most amazing thing to tell her that she gets to meet Ellen ! And also just a little fun fact, I wouldn't mind meeting Harry Styles HAHAHAHA!! Haha na I'm just joking around (kind of hahaha). Please read this Ellen I would be so thankful if you could do this for her I just want her to be happy again. Thank you Ellen xxmoreless
  • Hmmmm!

    I have always looked up to you for your clean humor but lately it is turning blue. I watch you on YouTube and this evening I saw references to "fresh sperm", "porn & beans," and "pubic" funds. A bar of soap is being mailed to under separate cover! Thanks for your attention to my comments.

  • ALREADY MISSING THE TIME SPENT WITH FAMILY ON THANKSGIVING? SPEND A LITTLE POST-TURKEY DAY TIME WITH THE CAMDENS IN 7TH HEAVEN, THE WILDERS IN THEIR LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE, OR THE GIRARDIS IN THE SECOND SEASON OF JOAN OF ARCADIA. OR YOU COULD TRY SPICING THINGS UP WITH BONES, CRIMINAL MINDS, OR JAMIE KENNEDY'S BLOWIN' UP.
