Monday, May 17
Ellen had so much fun giving away huge prizes during All Terrain Game Week -- she’s keeping it going for another day! Today she’s surprising one lucky viewer at home with a brand new GMC Terrain! It’ll be one big life-changing giveaway that you can’t miss! Then, today’s audience will be crazy with Bieber Fever when the one and only JUSTIN BIEBER stops by! He was discovered by Usher on YouTube, and in just a few months has become one of the biggest pop musicians in the world! Justin just turned 16, and Ellen can’t wait to see what he’ll do next. 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 headed back to the big screen with her new 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! Plus, everybody is talking about the hilarious photos that just aren’t right, and today Ellen has some of the craziest photos yet. You won’t believe what’s in these photos, but you know there’s something wrong!
Tuesday, May 18
Summer is almost here! Today Ellen gives you a sneak preview of all the exciting summer movies -- with some of her favorite guests! She’ll be certain to look behind her chair before STEVE CARELL drops by -- the last time he was here he did this. In addition to being the only one who has ever scared Ellen, no one can make her laugh like Steve, and she never knows what to expect from him! Steve is both a huge television star AND movie star, and now he has a new movie out this summer, “Despicable Me.” Then, another one of the most anticipated summer films is the next chapter in the Twilight series, “Eclipse,” and NIKKI REED is starring in it. The lucky actress gets to act with gorgeous guys Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kellan Lutz, and she’ll tell Ellen all about it! Ellen also has a huge surprise for one lucky audience member -- tickets to the “Eclipse” premiere! And, it’s hard to think of two bigger legends in music than JAMES TAYLOR and CAROLE KING, and it doesn’t get better than the two of them together! Their summer tour is sold out, but you can see them right here on the show. They’ll sing one of their hit songs from their new album, “Live at the Troubadour.”
Wednesday, May 19
ROBERT PATTINSON and ADAM LAMBERT
Today Ellen has one of the biggest shows of the season! Starting it off is one of the hottest guys on the planet, ROBERT PATTINSON! He’s mobbed everywhere he goes, but he’s holding them back long enough to visit with Ellen. The newest Twilight movie, “Eclipse,” is out soon, and he’s got all the details -- and he might have to weigh-in on Team Edward! Then, Ellen loves ADAM LAMBERT so much, and today he’s performing his latest song, “If I Had You.” He’s sure to have some opinions on the upcoming finale of “American Idol.” Adam has proven that you don’t have to be the winner to become a superstar! Plus, all month long Ellen has been surprising audience members with her huge Yay! May! Sweepstakes, and today, one person is going to have their life changed!
Thursday, May 20
ANTONIO BANDERAS and MAMA’S BIRTHDAY
Today is Mama’s 80th birthday and Ellen is celebrating in style! Betty DeGeneres has stood by her daughter since day one, and today Ellen will thank her with a special tribute -- plus a phone call from one of Betty’s favorite television stars! And there might just be some surprises in Mama’s honor -- for the audience and even viewers at home! Since it’s such an important day, Ellen wanted the sexiest and funniest guest, and had only one guy in mind: ANTONIO BANDERAS. He’s reprising his hysterical role in “Shrek Ever After,” and once told Ellen the ladies love Puss in Boots more than him. Fortunately, Melanie Griffith knows which is more important; they just celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary! Then, it couldn’t be a great birthday party without the best band, so WEEZER is performing! They’ve been popular for almost two decades with some of the best songs of the ‘90s, and today they’re singing the hit song “I’m Your Daddy” from their latest album, “Raditude.”
Friday, May 21
Ellen has been doing the show for seven years, and in all that time, the outrageous EDDIE MURPHY has never stopped by. Today he’s finally here, and he has some explaining to do! He’s been a busy man; Eddie is the second highest-grossing film actor in history, thanks to his hilarious roles, like Donkey in the new “Shrek Ever After.” No one knows what to expect from him today, but we do know that you don’t want to miss it! Then, it’s down to the Final Two on “American Idol” this week. Today the latest contestant to be eliminated is stopping by to share the excitement of making it to the top three -- and will give one last amazing performance! Also, one of the summer’s most anticipated movies is “Sex and the City 2,” and today JASON LEWIS is here to share all the details. He’s also bringing an exciting gift for a lucky audience member: tickets to the premiere!

THE START OF ALL TERRAIN GAME WEEK
Ellen has a brand new GMC Terrain she wants to give away, and she knows the best way: Game Week! Today is Day 1 of Ellen’s All Terrain Game Week -- with some of the biggest prizes ever -- and it all ends with someone driving home a GMC Terrain! And every time an audience member wins, someone at home wins too! If today’s game involves archery, RUSSELL CROWE can help! He surprised everyone by showing up with a bow and arrow a couple of weeks ago, helping an audience member make a perfect shot! It's all the training from his new movie, “Robin Hood.” That’s not the only thing he’s good at; he told Ellen he’s a great shopper -- he should know just what to get his wife for Mother’s Day! Then, the hilarious ERIC STONESTREET is a talented guy. He recently showed off his amazing drumming on an episode of his hit show, “Modern Family.” He’s also boasted quite a bit about his mouth trumpet skills -- Ellen will see if he’s really got it! And since today’s guests are all incredibly talented, it’s a perfect day for Ellen to feature another talented web star in Ellen’s Wonderful Web of Wonderment.
Tuesday, May 11
Ellen’s All Terrain Game Week is rolling on with Day 2! Today more audience members compete for a chance to win a brand new GMC Terrain! Plus, every time someone wins a prize on the show, a home viewer does too! Will it be you? Ellen’s got her finger on the censor button today, because her insanely funny WB neighbor JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS is stopping by. She always keeps Ellen on her toes... it seems like every time she’s around, someone gets hit in the face with a rock! Then, before CORY MONTEITH was on “Glee,” he had virtually every odd job possible -- including store greeter and school bus driver! Now he’s on the hit show and turning into a huge star, and will tell Ellen all about the excitement. Also, Ellen once got the chance to rock out with SLASH, so why can’t her friend ADAM LEVINE? The Maroon 5 frontman teamed up with the guitarist on his latest album, “Slash,” and today they’re both stopping by to perform the song “Gotten.” Plus, Ellen has put together some of her favorite moments from the show, and you’ll love it!
Wednesday, May 12
You’ve never seen a round of Know or Go as exciting as today’s! It’s Day 3 of Ellen’s All Terrain Game Week and the contestants are competing for a chance to win the ultimate prize of a new GMC Terrain! Then, Ellen has found some of the best talent from the web and featured them in her Wonderful Web of Wonderment segment. Today she’s welcoming 11-year-old singer MADDI JANE, who has an amazing voice that you’ve got to hear! When RYAN PHILLIPPE last sat down with Ellen, she told him he needed to lighten up from all the serious movies he’s been in -- and he sure listened! Now he’s starring in the new comedy, “MacGruber,” along with some of your “SNL” favorites, and he’ll stop by for a laugh with Ellen. Also, PAM ANDERSON & DAMIAN WHITEWOOD made it quite far on “Dancing with the Stars,” but not quite far enough! They were recently eliminated, but that means they can stop by the show and perform one of their incredible (and sexy) dances! And today Ellen is introducing you to the new band, COURT YARD HOUNDS. They might seem familiar -- that’s because it’s Martie Maguire and Emily Robinson from the incredibly popular Dixie Chicks! They’ll be singing their new hit single. Also, Victoria’s Secret is still trying to get Ellen to model for them. Today they’re even sending over supermodel MIRANDA KERR with a special surprise for Ellen! She’ll be so honored.
Thursday, May 13
It’s Day 4 of Ellen’s All Terrain Game Week and the competition is getting intense! There’s just one more day until someone drives home a brand new GMC Terrain, and today’s contestants will do anything to make it to the end! Someone at home is winning one too, so if you haven’t entered to win, don’t miss out on your big chance! That’s not the only exciting gift Ellen is giving away! All month long she’s got huge surprises in store for her audience during Yay! May! Today, one lucky audience member will win something that will change their life! Ellen always has a great time when the very sexy ROB LOWE visits. He’s always up for some fun with Ellen, whether skiing down a mountain, sledding down a giant inflatable slide, or simply getting his hair washed! Now the hilarious guy has a brand new role on “Parks & Recreation” -- his first role on a comedy show. It’s a good thing Ellen trained him not to laugh! Then, COMMON is one talented guy; he’s an amazing Grammy-winning rapper and now he’s proving that he’s a skilled actor too! He’s starring with Queen Latifah in the new movie, “Just Wright,” and will be stopping by today!
Friday, May 14
ALL TERRAIN GAME WEEK FINALE
It’s here! Today is the huge finale of Ellen’s exciting All Terrain Game Week. All week long, Ellen’s audience members have been competing for the chance to win the Grand Prize -- and today the finalists battle it out one last time! One of them will win a brand new GMC Terrain, and someone at home will win one too! The competition is fierce here, but it’s just as intense on “American Idol”! This week, another contestant was eliminated, and they’re here to tell Ellen what it’s like to make it all the way to the Final Four -- and will give a performance you won’t forget! Then, TERI HATCHER has been married four times, been in a car accident, had her house burned down, and even shot a neighbor… all on “Desperate Housewives,” that is! It’s not ending there; they’ve been renewed for two more seasons and she’s here to tell Ellen about the exciting season finale. In real life, Teri is lots of fun. Ellen has even played matchmaker for her, but Teri didn’t take her suggestion! Maybe she’ll listen to Ellen’s great suggestions today! Also, Ellen has been getting tweets from the popular band PARAMORE. They wanted to perform on the show -- and Ellen didn’t hesitate to say yes! They’ll perform a song from their latest hit album, “Brand New Eyes.”
