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.”

Ellen had so much fun during her O Magazine photo shoot with Oprah, and today she has some exclusive footage from their day. Then, Ellen’s friend and poker buddy JENNY MCCARTHY is always up for a fun time. Jenny may be notorious for her edgy personality, but she’s also an extremely devoted mother and will tell me all about her new educational DVDs for kids, “Teach2Talk.” Also, you know Ellen loves everything about “So You Think You Can Dance,” including the wonderful CAT DEELEY. She’s here today and they’re gonna talk about everything that's happened. She’s never danced on the show before, so maybe she’ll show us a few moves here!
Thursday, August 5
You won’t believe the voice of 12-year-old RHAP SALAZAR. Ellen saw a YouTube video of his singing and it blew her away. She’s flying him in all the way from the Philippines. Then, Ellen has helped DWAYNE JOHNSON get over his fear of tarantulas, and last time they worked on his fear of roller coasters. When he’s here to talk about his movie “Planet 51,” she’ll see if there’s anything else we can work on. Just call her Dr. Ellen. Also, with the amount that BRIAN WILLIAMS travels the world while hosting “NBC Nightly News,” Ellen is thrilled that he’s taking the time to be on the show today. He is a funny guy and it’s always great to have him here. Ellen hear he’s a fan of pranks, too. Will he still be a fan if the prank is on him? There’s only one way to find out! Also, you never know who else may drop by the show today, so don’t miss it!
Friday, August 6
JON BON JOVI
Ellen always thought she was good at Ping-Pong... until she saw a YouTube video of XIN-XUE FENG. Xin-Xue is absolutely amazing, and she’s only 7 years old! Ellen was so impressed with her that she’s flying her all the way from China to be here. It’ll be Xin-Xue’s first time on TV. Also, for over 25 years BON JOVI has been one of the top rock bands, selling over 120 million albums -- and they proved that they’ve still got it with their album “The Circle.” Now they’re on the show to perform their new song “We Weren’t Born to Follow,” and Ellen will try to convince them to play one of their classics, too. Ellen will also get a chance to chat with Jon Bon Jovi. Then, KELLY OSBOURNE AND LOUIS VAN AMSTEL made it all the way to the finals of “Dancing with the Stars”! Kelly will share all about her unexpected, life-changing experience, and of course, they’ll perform a dance.

TAYLOR SWIFT is absolutely amazing! She’s only 19, but she already has two albums that made it to the Top 10. Even though she’s considered a country singer, her music is on all the radio stations. She’s stopping by to share the success stories with Ellen. Then, Taylor’s very first single was a song called “Tim McGraw,” so who better to have on the show also than TIM MCGRAW?!

If he wants tips on having a huge career, he only needs to talk to QUEEN LATIFAH -- she’s always doing something new! Queen Latifah has been a top rap artist, starred in a musical, released a jazz album, hosted award shows, and now she’s returned to the big screen with her movie “Just Wright,” written specifically for her! She also just hosted “Idol Gives Back,» something she said she wanted to do for years, and will tell Ellen all about it!

She first made her name known when she won “American Idol,” and in just a few years, CARRIE UNDERWOOD has become a country music superstar. Now she’s just released her third album, “Play On,” and it immediately went to #1 on the charts. That’s how I know I’ll be a good “American Idol” judge -- I knew she’d be huge! She’ll perform “Cowboy Casanova° when she’s here. Then, everyone is getting excited for the next Twilight movie “New Moon,” and today the incredibly sexy KELLAN LUTZ drops by.

He’s here for the first time to sing his hit song, “You and Your Heart.” Also, a few months ago, Ellen and Portia found out about an amazing organization called The Gentle Barn, which rescues farm animals from terrible situations and brings them back to health, while also providing a great learning experience for at-risk kids.
