|This week on Ellen... |
Monday, March 22
He’s suave, he’s sexy, and he’s on the show -- PIERCE BROSNAN is visiting Ellen today. He’s more than just a good looking guy -- he’s also quite the family man, and even won a Young Hollywood Award for being a Hollywood role model! St. Patrick’s Day was last week, and Ellen will find out if the Irish actor did anything to celebrate his home country. Then, after 500,000 joined a Facebook group begging for it, BETTY WHITE is going to host “Saturday Night Live,” but not before coming here first! It’s been almost four years since she’s been on the show, so Betty and Ellen have a lot of catching up to do! Also, Ellen has been introducing you to great musicians from all across the world, and today she invited MELANIE FIONA to perform her Grammy-nominated song, “It Kills Me.” And as Ellen’s trip to Universal Orlando Resort nears, she’s still giving away chances to join her. Today she’ll let two audience members battle it out for the big prize -- in a competition you don’t want to miss!
Tuesday, March 23
Ellen’s friend KRISTIN CHENOWETH is so funny and incredibly talented. She’s an amazing actress, and now she’s returning to the Broadway stage in the musical “Promises, Promises.” Ellen feels she helped Kristin get there, since Kristin starred in “Ellen: The Musical”! Or it may have been her role in “Wicked.” Kristin always seems to have a new story about her hair -- last time she told Ellen how she accidentally lit it on fire! Ellen will have the fire extinguisher ready before the interview. Then, THE BIRD AND THE BEE have had two successful albums and their music has been featured in a variety of movies and television shows. Now, with their new album, they’re paying tribute to the classic group Hall & Oates and will perform one of their greatest hits today.
Wednesday, March 24
It’s hard to believe that GERARD BUTLER could be any sexier, but he’s become even hotter since his last time on the show! If looks aren’t enough for you, how about the fact that he saved a stranger’s life? He once saved a boy from drowning! When he’s not saving lives, he’s hard at work... he has two movies coming out; “The Bounty Hunter” and “How to Train Your Dragon,” but he made sure to find time to visit Ellen! Then, Ellen will welcome top animal psychic SONYA FITZPATRICK to the show. Earlier this week, Sonya went to Ellen’s house to meet her pets, and we followed them with cameras. You’ll get to see everything that happened during her visit. Plus, Ellen has been introducing you to new music all month long, and she has another great artist on the show today. DIANE BIRCH is here to perform “Valentino” from her album “Bible Belt.”
Thursday, March 25
Just like Ellen, JACKIE CHAN does all his own stunts! He shows what he’s got in the movie, “Spy Next Door,” and will be dropping by to chat with Ellen today. Ellen will make sure to hide the expensive china -- one time he broke her vases! She broke something too... a bottle over his head! Then, you know ANNA KENDRICK from the “Twilight” movies, and she recently co-starred with none other than George Clooney in the Oscar-nominated film, “Up in the Air.” When she visits Ellen today, the two will swap their favorite Clooney stories! And Ellen has some of the best web videos ever that will keep you laughing all day long!
Friday, March 26
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, from the hilarious show “Modern Family,” SOFIA VERGARA is stopping by. Sofia is from Colombia, so Ellen has a great idea how she can help Ellen’s Quest for World Domination with a simple long-distance phone call! Then, everybody was talking about “The Bachelor” 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!

Monday, March 15
Ellen wanted to have some of the sexiest stars on the show -- and there’s no one better than her good friend, DEMI MOORE! Demi and Ashton Kutcher are well-known for being a romantic couple; they said they even bought guns together. Ellen and Demi were once in a movie together, but they cut Ellen’s scene -- maybe Demi can have it inserted in her new movie, “Happy Tears.” Then, in the past year, everyone has noticed the gorgeous CHANNING TATUM in some of the biggest movies. The model-turned-actor is now stealing hearts in the new movie, “Dear John,” and might end up stealing your heart too! Also, there’s no better musician for this time of year than MICHAEL BUBLÉ. The two-time Grammy-winning artist is here to sing his hit song, “Haven’t Met You Yet.”
Tuesday, March 16
When Ellen finally captured George Clooney last year, she had one important question: “How do I get JULIANNA MARGULIES”? His advice must have worked -- she’s here for the first time today! This won’t be her first time in the studio though -- the stage where Ellen tapes the show used to be sets for “ER.” Now Julianna is on the hit show “Good Wife,” for which she won a Golden Globe Award! Then, everybody in the UK is paying attention to the new group LA ROUX -- and you will too when you see them perform! They’re coming all the way to L.A. to sing their hit song, “Bulletproof.” Also, JAMES GALEA is often called the best magician in Australia, but he’s going to try being the best magician in the USA when he’s here today. He has some amazing tricks that will blow you away! And Ellen was shocked when LILLY SCOTT was voted off “American Idol” last week. It’s a good thing Ellen has a talk show -- she’s invited Lilly to perform here today.
Wednesday, March 17
Erin go bragh! It’s St. Patrick’s Day, and judging from this show, Ellen’s got the luck o’ the Irish! And the Guinness. One of Ellen’s favorite shows this season is “Modern Family,” and today TY BURRELL is dropping by to share the fun with Ellen. He and his wife don’t have any kids yet, but Ellen hears they want to -- and she’s going to find out if it’s true! Also, Ellen loves introducing you to new music from all over the world. Today she welcomes a band from the UK called ONE ESKIMO -- you just might find your new favorite band. And with the economy as it is, you can always use great advice from MARIA BARTIROMO. She’ll be here to chat with Ellen and will be answering your questions -- so don’t miss out, especially if you find that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Or just want to save for retirement. Also, the luck may have run out for ALEX LAMBERT when he was voted off “American Idol” last week, but Ellen wanted him here today -- so he’s stopping by to chat and perform.
Thursday, March 18
PAMELA ANDERSON and DAMIAN WHITEWOOD
The producers of “Dancing with the Stars” have to be prepared for anything -- PAMELA ANDERSON is competing this season! Ellen can never predict what she’ll do here; one time she flipped over the couch and another time she stripped down to a bikini! We’ll find out what she’ll do today when she visits with her dance partner, DAMIAN WHITEWOOD. Then, Ellen will welcome CHEF JOSÉ ANDRÉS to teach everyone a brand new recipe. His restaurant in L.A. was awarded a rare four stars by the L.A. Times -- so the food is bound to be amazing! Also here for the first time is the very cute jazz musician JAMIE CULLUM. He’ll be putting an unbelievable new twist on a popular hit when he sings “Don’t Stop the Music” -- you don’t want to miss it! And Ellen will feature another group of audience members with amazing hidden talents you have to see to believe!
Friday, March 19
‘AMERICAN IDOL’ CASTOFF
The competition is getting tougher on “American Idol,” and this week it’s down to 11 contestants. The latest castoff is here today to chat with Ellen before performing one more time. Then, when TAYE DIGGS was last here, his baby was just 6 weeks old! He’s back today and Ellen wants to hear all the adorable stories. He’ll also share the latest on his show, “Private Practice.” Then, CHELSEA HANDLER is sure to answer Ellen’s questions honestly -- and then some! The hilarious and opinionated talk show host just released her second book, “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang,” and she doesn’t hold back! Also, Ellen has been introducing you to great musicians all across the world this week, and today she invited MELANIE FIONA to perform her Grammy-nominated song, “It Kills Me.”

Ellen loves SANDRA BULLOCK! Sandra has had an amazing year; she was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in the incredibly inspiring film, “The Blind Side,” and this past summer, “The Proposal” was the biggest movie of her career. She’s fun, she’s funny, she’s brilliant and she’s beautiful. Oh, and she once let Ellen hit her over the head with a bottle.
