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.

      Awesome Show, Ellen is so real and I love that she is herself, Ellen all of the time. It is obvious she loves people and has a big heart. I don't do much TV but i love the Ellen Show and what she continously does for people and the community.
    • Wish we had a show like ELLEN in India!

      I watch all your episodes and when not on TV I try to catch up online. I simply love ELLEN and I think what she does is amazing and beyond belief. There is absolutely no other show that is remotely close. The way the talent is identified, people are invited to the show is simply SOUPERB and I say the SOUPerb on purpose, its just so inspiring. If I could ever be invited, I would love to come all the way from India entirely at my expense just to be a part of the audience. Amazing Ellen. Good luck and three cheers! You simply of love from INDIA. .moreless

      I watched you Christmas Show and I know I'm real late like always but want someone to read this please! My daughter Corie is 42 and has had Arthritis since she was 3. She also has it attack her eyes so now she's blind in her right eye! If you see her you would say she's the cuties little thing and greatest personality. So yes she has a large load to carry for such a small girl. She's married works as a PTA just went back to school to get her BDS to make more money. She has two wonderful children that gives 100% to family and school. Her oldest daughter Faith has been in the newspaper, on TV and also in a book. Her son is just as wonderful. Accepted to a out of town school for advantage students. Now of this have put her family behind but Please Ellen with all that she has done as her mother I would love for her, her family and brother with his family to go on a trip. Since they can't afford it and before she totally goes blind that would be fantastic to see and island and the weather along with the ocean make her feel so much better! I don't know if you ever would since this is a review. But I'm putting the review on you Ellen to help the one's that truly help others!moreless
    • The reason I no longer watch television

      1.0
      While watching yet another ellen show I became aware of how predictable every minute of it was. It was like wearing the same shirt every day for years. That was it. I unplugged it and haven't looked back. How this stuff stays on the air as long as it does is beyond me. Nothing challenges us anymore and is only marginally entertaining. I think people develop a habit of watching the same crap day in and day out. Just more and more drivel with glossy packaging and big money give-aways to keep the sheep in the queues. Ellen had a unique opportunity to create something truly different and what we got was another blister packaged, cheap knock off of been-there-done-that with a production budget that could feed millions.moreless
