    Does anybody know how many days ahead of time they film the shows? I'm going on January 2nd and I wanted to know who I'm going to see. Maybe the Tuesday show? Thanks

    For some reason I always thought it was aired live (or taped a few hours before) until they had that live episode. I guess they film it a few days before the actual date. It must be weird pretending it is a day it isnt though.

    I would get so confused on my days if I had to talk like that all the time.

    I dont get how she can tape the episodes before the airing date. She crosses off who was eliminated from American idol on Thursdays, but how can she do that if its a live show on Wednesday nights?

    the monologue and most of the guests are taped the day of. But some of the music segements are pre-taped days in advance and edited into the show later.

    I think it varies, but I am not positive.   Like last week on like Wednesday she mentioned Tom and Katie having their baby but on Friday she did her little "Look in the Future" segment because they taped Elton John last week but it airs Monday.    Probably, depending on guests schedules and what not.

    I went to a show taping in March on a Thursday, and that show aired the next day.  They were doing two tapings that day though.  The second taping was going to air on Monday because they do not tape on Friday.

    Another sourse of confusion is guests that appear on ellen daytime (west coast) and on conan or letterman (east coast) the same night. There are even cases where NYC morning shows have a celeb scheduled to appear on ellen that same afternoon. I'd have to guess that some show's segments are taped more than a day in advance.
