He and his wife MICHELLE are here with the dog, Riley, to share the beautiful story with Ellen. COURTENEY COX knows how to stay young -- or at least keep the men around her young! She’s starting a brand new season of “Cougar Town,” where she’s reuniting with “Friends” co-star Jennifer Aniston! He’s in one of Ellen’s favorite shows, “Modern Family.” Today, the Emmy-nominated JESSE TYLER FERGUSON is here to tell her what’s in store this season. “Hawaii Five-O” is back and better than ever with a brand new reboot.

He’s hilarious and he’s finally back to chat with Ellen -- HUGH LAURIE has the scoop on the brand new season of “House”!

ELLEN’S FASHION WEEK EXPERIENCE
It’s been six long years since BROOKE SHIELDS was on the show, but today she’s finally back and ready to have some fun!

The last time he was here, ED HELMS showed off his hidden talent: the ability to spin any object on his fingers! He’s back -- and he just might have another talent to show off! KELLY OSBOURNE is always up for something new. She’s now the new co-host of “Fashion Police” on E! -- and is chatting with Ellen today. LE REVE at the Wynn in Las Vegas is well-known its jaw-dropping acrobatics. The cast is here today to perform one of their unbelievable routines.
Friday, September 24
JIMMY SMITS AND BRISTOL PALIN
Ellen loved the salsa lessons from JIMMY SMITS last year, so she’s invited him back for another round on the dance floor!

Monday, September 6
KATHERINE HEIGL starts off the show today! She’s got a lot going on right now and always gives an interview you don’t want to miss! Then, Ellen’s boo, NICK CANNON, is coming by. She loves the guy so much, he was the DJ for her TBS special this summer. Nick is doing well for himself -- he’s married to Mariah Carey, is the host of “America’s Got Talent,” and is the chairman of the Nickelodeon channel, TEENick! Then... when Ellen was 7, she put a nickel up her nose, but 7-year-old PRESTON SCARBOROUGH led police on a high speed chase! Now he’s coming here to tell Ellen all about it, but this time we’re going to leave the driving to his parents!
Tuesday, September 7
No one had heard of GABBY SIDIBE before the movie “Precious” was released, but everyone knows her now! She plays the main character and is absolutely great. Ellen just had to get her here to chat, so she’s stopping by today. Then, KATIE COURIC was on the show during the first season. Now, six years later, she’s finally coming back. A lot has changed for her since then! And KATE GOSSELIN is going to be here. That’s right... Kate is here! If raising eight kids weren’t hard enough, she’s also been swarmed by the tabloids. She’ll be here to tell Ellen what’s happening.
Wednesday, September 8
You probably know Ellen loves the new film “Precious.” If you didn’t -- you do now! Everyone in it is absolutely amazing, and many of them are in a role totally opposite their public image, including MARIAH CAREY. You will barely recognize her! Ellen can’t wait to hear about it today. Mariah will also talk about her brand new CD, “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.” Then, Ellen recently read a book by JONATHAN SAFRAN FOER called “Eating Animals,” and she wants to share it with you. Jonathan will be here to talk about his experience writing it. In the book, he evaluates his own attitudes about nutrition and diet, and examines the attitudes society has about eating meat. He found out some amazing facts that you might not know about your food, so you’ll want to hear what he has to say.
Thursday, September 9
There’s really only one way to say it -- DENNIS QUAID is here! Actually, he says it better. Ellen’s favorite hidden-camera prankster returns today -- and who knows what he’ll get himself involved with this time?! First he’ll give Ellen all the details on his movie, “Legion.” Then, last season on “The Bachelor,” no one could stop talking about the contestant MICHELLE. She’ll be doing some talking of her own today when she sits down with Ellen and gives her all the behind-the-scenes details!
Friday, September 10
Ellen is getting the fun started today when she turns the Riff-Raff Room into vacation central! A few months ago, MILEY CYRUS was a mentor on “American Idol,” and today she’ll share the advice she gave to contestants. And Ellen will find out all about Miley’s recent romance! Then, it’s not a proper vacation without music, so today Ellen invited a man named JAMES DUPRÉ, who she found on YouTube. She was so impressed, she had to have him here, and he’ll give an amazing performance you have to see! And if you’re a fan of “Sex and the City,” don’t miss JOHN CORBETT on the show today.

Monday, August 30
Whoever wins “America’s Got Talent” will need SHARON OSBOURNE to like them! As one of the judges, her opinion is worth a lot -- a million dollars, to be exact! Her brutally honest comments might not go so well with some of the contestants, but always make for a good interview! Then, Ellen held her when she was 2 days old, now she’s becoming a movie star! The daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, RUMER WILLIS, is here to tell Ellen all about her latest movie. Ellen hears Rumer was so good at screaming, she freaked out some of the film crew! Maybe Ellen will see how her crew holds up...
Tuesday, August 31
Ellen loves her so much -- QUEEN LATIFAH is on the show today! She’s always up for a game... one time it involved kazoos! (She sure knows how to play one!) Maybe Ellen will create a game with kazoos and blindfolds just for her! Queen returned to her hip-hop roots with her latest album, “Persona,” and she’s here to perform one of the songs, “Cue the Rain”!
Wednesday, September 1
JENNIFER ANISTON was the very first guest Ellen had on the show -- now she’s coming back! Jennifer was in the movie “Love Happens,” so naturally Ellen will see if any love is happening in her life! If not, the last time Jen was on she made a few comments about one of Ellen’s staff members... maybe Ellen will make that work out! Then, it’s their first time on the show and Ellen can’t wait, DAVE MATTHEWS BAND is here! They’ll be performing “You and Me” from their #1 album “Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King.” Since it’s their first time here, Ellen will find a way to make their performance extra-special!
Thursday, September 2
We don’t know what it is about VINCE VAUGHN, but no matter what he’s talking about -- it’s hilarious! You’ll see for yourself when he’s on the show today! Vince was in the hilarious movie “Couples Retreat,” and speaking of couples, he’s gonna tell Ellen about his engagement! They’ll also play his favorite game: Humdinger -- he’s good at guessing, but can he hum too? And you know SCARLETT JOHANSSON is a great actress, but did you know she is also an amazing singer? She’s teamed with PETE YORN for her second album called ”Break Up,“ and the two will perform their song “Relator.” It will be their first time performing on TV -- and it’s right here on the show! Ellen also found another batch of Hidden Audience Talents and they might be the greatest so far (and you thought the guy who could kick himself in the forehead 25 times was the best!).
Friday, September 3
There is really no way to describe Elle’s friend JIM CARREY. He’s one of the funniest and most genuine people she knows, and when he’s around, Ellen just can’t stop laughing! He’s on the show today and no one knows what to expect. Also today, Ellen will play one of her favorite games: Blindfolded Musical Chairs! Then, the gorgeous FAITH HILL is coming by to talk about what’s been happening since she was last here. She released a new fragrance, “Faith Hill Parfums.” She and her husband, Tim McGraw, just celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary. Ellen isn’t surprised they’ve been married so long; he’s a smart guy -- Tim told her he doesn’t even bother fighting with her since he knows he’ll lose!

Monday, August 16
There are a lot of guests on today's show, and most of them are coming with JACK HANNA! He'll be here with an amazing assortment of animals: bears, toucans, camels and slow lorises (he may have made up that last one)! You won't want to miss what he's bringing today. You're also not gonna want to miss FELICITY HUFFMAN. The "Desperate Housewives" star is sure to have plenty of housewife drama to talk about! Last time she was here, she told Ellen that she loves to play games, so she'd better be ready for a challenge! Then, the incredible ROGER DALTREY is stopping by. He's been all over the world with The Who, and recently went on a "Use It or Lose It" tour, and is stopping by to perform "I Can See for Miles"!
Tuesday, August 17
Today Ellen is going to introduce you to a 10-year-old girl who is already making an impact on the world. Her name is ANNABELLE HELD, and she started a dog treat business -- but instead of keeping the profits, she donates them to an animal shelter in her hometown of Marietta, Georgia! Then, Ellen's friend, the hilarious DAVID SPADE, is also doing an amazing thing. He's been a big supporter of firefighters here in L.A., and to thank them for their hard work, he invited hundreds of firefighters to a free comedy show. He'll be here to share more about this really cool event. Also, JOHN C. REILLY will be here for the first time! Ellen can't believe he hasn't been here yet, but today the talented actor will finally chat with her. He's been in some of the best movies, like "Chicago," "Gangs of New York" and "The Hours." And, if you haven't heard MIKA, you'll want to see him on today's show. He's from London, and after his first album he was compared with Freddie Mercury, Elton John and Prince. He released his second album, "The Boy Who Knew Too Much," and will perform his hit "Blame It on the Girls."
Wednesday, August 18
Ellen has been watching DAKOTA FANNING grow into a beautiful young woman over the years, and Ellen feels like she's responsible for Dakota's success. Dakota once played a younger version of Ellen on her sitcom -- and she's been in one of the biggest movies of the year, "The Twilight Saga: New Moon." She gets to work with Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner... we're sure she'll thank Ellen when she's on the show today. Then, Ellen has more huge surprises for her home viewers -- you won't want to miss what she's got planned for today! Also Ellen will make sure to tweet SEAN "DIDDY COMBS before he arrives. He was the one who introduced her to Twitter -- and now she has almost 5 million followers! Ellen once made him try to identify his Ciroc Vodka in a blind taste test. He got drunk. He still got it right though. Now they've introduced Ciroc Coconut and Ciroc Red Berry -- Ellen just might make him taste test both flavors.
Thursday, August 19
Today Ellen is surprising one lucky viewer with a massive surprise: a trip to L.A. to see the show, and a brand new GMC Terrain! Then, you won't want to take your eyes off the screen when the sexy JON HAMM is here. You can buy Jon for yourself; this summer, Barbie released a doll based on his character from "Mad Men!" Also, Ellen did it again: she predicted the latest Bachelorette! ALI FEDOTOWSKY is stopping by to share some of the details. And the amazing NATASHA BEDINGFIELD is here. She's releasing her new album soon, but today she's giving everyone a preview when she sings one her songs, "Touch."
Friday, August 20
Ellen has only the best today, and it's a show you don't want to miss! First, Ellen welcomes one of the funniest guys around -- MARTIN SHORT! He created some of the most memorable moments on "Saturday Night Live," and is back on TV with a role on "Damages." Then, legendary film producer JERRY WEINTRAUB has been working in entertainment for over 50 years -- and he sure has a lot of stories. He's sharing the best of them in his new memoir, "When I Stop Talking, You'll Know I'm Dead," and will stop by to tell Ellen all about it. Also, country star GRETCHEN WILSON will perform her song "Work Hard, Play Harder." And you never know who else will drop by today!

Monday, August 9
Every day is a celebration for Ellen, especially today! You never know what will happen! She loves surprising her audience with amazing gifts and huge prizes, and today is no exception. Then, you never know what the beautiful SCARLETT JOHANSSON is doing next. Just a few months ago, she stopped by with an amazing singing performance, then she starred in the huge summer movie, “Iron Man 2.” She played a tough and sexy superhero -- and did all her own stunts! She might even have a few moves to teach Ellen! Plus, the extraordinary MELISSA ETHERIDGE released a brand new album and is making a rare talk show stop right here with Ellen! She’ll give an unbelievable performance of her hit song, “Fearless Love.” Also, Ellen introduces you to another amazing web star that you’ve gotta see -- on today’s Wonderful Web of Wonderment!
Tuesday, August 10
It’s been four years since she’s been on the show, now JENNIFER GARNER is back! Last time, she was pregnant with her first child, now she and her husband Ben Affleck have two little girls! And if motherhood weren’t keeping her busy enough, Jennifer was in the movie, “The Invention of Lying.” Then, if you saw Ellen’s TBS special last year, you saw the absolutely hilarious comedian JOE WONG. (And if you didn’t see her TBS special -- how dare you!) He was so great, she’s bringing him on the show today and you’ve got to see him! Ellen also has Scottish musician PAOLO NUTINI on the show. He’ll be performing the hit song “Candy” from his latest album, “Sunny Side Up.”
Wednesday, August 11
COURTENEY COX ARQUETTE
Ellen’s good friend COURTENEY COX ARQUETTE is on the show today! Last time, Courteney told Ellen she didn’t have any stories to share, but we’re sure she’ll have plenty to talk about with her show “Cougar Town”! She’s one of the few people who embrace their age rather than lie about it. Speaking of lies, RICKY GERVAIS is starring in the new movie, “The Invention of Lying.” The hilarious British comedian will be on the show for the first time! (It’s true... we swear!) Also, if you haven’t heard of JESSIE JAMES, you will soon! She’s being compared to Christina Aguilera and Carrie Underwood, but you can decide for yourself when she performs the song “Wanted” from her album.
Thursday, August 12
Some of Ellen’s favorite guests are stopping by today! First, JIMMY SMITS is here to tell her about his PBS do*****entary, “Latin Music USA.” He’s excited about going to the White House for a concert honoring Hispanic music! Then, Ellen’s good friend T.R. KNIGHT is coming by. It’s been two years since he was last on and a lot has changed for him. He left “Grey’s Anatomy” and performed in the stage musical “Parade.” Ellen can’t wait to hear about it! Also, back when Chris Daughtry was on “American Idol,” Ellen knew he was going to be a big star. Even though he was voted off early, he formed his band DAUGHTRY and is huge! Now they’re here to perform “Life After You” from their CD, “Leave This Town.” And since Ellen likes her groceries to be quadruple-bagged, she has plenty of paper bags lying around. That means it’s a perfect time to play one of her newest games, “I’m Going to Rip Your Face Off!”
Friday, August 13
Ellen recently showed you a hilarious video of a girl recovering from dental surgery -- she was a little loopy from the medication! Her name is Hannah and she had no idea her sister put it online, and she became an internet sensation! Today the two are here to tell the real story! And that may have been a bad video for Hannah, but she’ll be in good company today when a group of audience members show off their hilarious Bad Paid-for Photos! Then, ANDREW GARCIA was a favorite on “Idol” from the beginning, but eventually he was voted off. He’s stopping by today for one last performance. Plus, the world first got to know HILARY DUFF as a young Disney star. Now she’s become a beautiful young woman, and recently starred in the ABC Family movie “Beauty and the Briefcase.” She’s stopping by to tell Ellen what it’s been like growing up in the spotlight -- and staying out of trouble. And ALAN JACKSON is one of the biggest country musicians. He’ll be visiting Ellen for the very first time today and will perform his single, “Just That Way.”
