Show Summary

The Ellen DeGeneres Show has consistently been one of the world's highest-rated shows and has been awarded many Daytime Emmy Awards. Hosted by star of Ellen and The Ellen Show, Ellen Degeneres always brings her A-game in order to make you laugh. Featuring a unique mix of celebrity interviews, chart-topping and up-and-coming musical performances, audience participation games, and segments spotlighting real life stories, and amazing talent throughout all age-groups. Ellen encourages a "negative-free zone", and tries to make everybody feel as if they are in the studio, even if they're sat at home. She regularly rings viewers and throughout regular segments within the show encourages people at home to send in videos, letters and even leave voicemail messages. Unlike other talk-shows were the host is accompanied by a houseband, Ellen is joined by a in-house DJ. Since the start of the series, there have been four DJ's (Scotty K, Jonny Abrahams, DJ Stryker, and Tont Okungbowa). However, Tony Okungbowa has been around the longest, appearing during most of season 1 and 2, and regularly since season 6. What is a huge part of the show, as at the start of each programme, after delivering her opening monologue, Ellen dances with the audience, following on from this she does her signature dance across her coffee table. Produced by Warner Bros. Entertainment on the Warner Bros. lot in California.

  • Games

    I like Ellen a lot. She seems very positive and fun. Has good guests on the show. I rarely watch because of all the games. Fun for them, boring to watch. Show needs to set the bar higher.

    I wish I could be on your show :( WHEN IS MY WISH GOING TO EVER COME TRUE :'(
  • 12 Days of Giveaways

    Day one of Ellen's 12 Days of Giveaways, and the only things she gave away were gift cards. Has it always been this way and I didn't notice?
  • Is Ellen tired of being on the show?

    The guests are enthusiastic and usually a lot of fun, and there are some pretty amusing additional segments such as games.

    However, I find Ellen herself to be a problem. Now I have only recently started to casually watch the show, so I'm not sure if it's a new thing. She has an indifferent interviewing technique, which makes her seem to be lacking in warmth or presence: she seems to shoot out questions without even listening or reacting to the anecdotes that the guests animatedly tell, then rushing on to the next random question that is totally unrelated to what the guest was saying.

    All and all, Ellen often appears not to be that keen to even be there. The entertaining guests do make up for for a lot, and when Ellen gets going she can be very witty, but the lukewarm and rushed hosting is currently a bit of a problem.

    The live audience, however, seems to worship her, as a long segment is always devoted to audience screaming and Ellen dancing. Might be exciting if you're present, but for home audiences it is pretty tedious.moreless
  • Ellen Shop

    I might be a fan of Ellen Tv BUT I don't approve of her merchandise shop!

    3 months ago I put a $100 clothes order in.... I still dont have it.

    after countless emails to customer service people, I have nothing! I'm Very Disappointed, no merchandise & I'm out $100

    Ellen's shop sucks
