|This week on Ellen... |
Monday, December 21
JENNIFER ANISTON was the very first guest I had on my show -- now my friend is coming back! She was in the movie "Love Happens," so naturally I'll see if any love is happening in her life! If not, the last time she was on she made a few comments about one of my staff members... maybe I'll try to make that work out! Then, they normally don't perform on talk shows -- but DAVE MATTHEWS BAND will be right here and I can't wait! They'll be performing "You and Me" from their #1 album, "Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King." I'm making it extra special by having a big outdoor concert!!
Tuesday, December 22
A few weeks ago, I drove all the way to Chicago to appear on Oprah's show, and today I'll show you everything that happened on my way there. Then, JOHN TRAVOLTA isn't doing any talk shows -- except mine -- so it will be a special day today. He's been through a lot in the last year and I can't wait to see him, tell him how much I love him, and then laugh with him. He's in the movie "Old Dogs," along with his 9-year-old daughter ELLA BLEU TRAVOLTA! It's her first time acting, and I bet it was fun to act with her dad. She'll be here with her father, and I'm excited to talk to the two of them together. Also, I'll be playing a big game with even bigger prizes!
Wednesday, December 23
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 her third album, "Play On," is out -- 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 loved the second Twilight movie, "New Moon," and today the incredibly sexy KELLAN LUTZ drops by. He became a sensation almost overnight, and it only takes one look at him to see why! Before he went into acting he used to be a model, so I'll try to get him to model some Ellen underwear. You can thank me later. Also, I've got another huge surprise for one of my viewers -- watch to find out what it is!
Thursday, December 24
There is really no way to describe my friend JIM CARREY. He's one of the funniest and most genuine people I know, and when he's around, I just can't stop laughing! He's on the show today and I have no idea what to expect. He's in the Disney movie "A Christmas Carol," and I've heard he's been doing some interesting publicity for it. I guess I'll find out when he's here. Also today, I'll play one of my favorite games: Blindfolded Musical Chairs! And, I've got a great new way to give out cash to my audience -- with a cannon! Then, the gorgeous FAITH HILL is coming by to tell me what's been happening since she was last here. She released a fragrance, "Faith Hill Parfums," and will tell me all about it (I know there are notes involved -- or I may be thinking about her music again). Her husband, Tim McGraw, was on the show recently -- they celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary! I'm not surprised they've been married so long, he's a smart guy -- he told me he doesn't even bother fighting with her since he knows he'll lose!
Friday, December 25
KATHERINE HEIGL starts off the show today! She's got a lot going on right now and always gives an interview you won't want to miss! Then, my boo NICK CANNON is coming by. I love this guy so much, he was the DJ for my TBS special this summer. (I'm sure you already knew that!) He 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 I was 7, I put a nickel up my nose, but 7-year-old PRESTON SCARBOROUGH led police on a high speed chase! Now he's coming here to tell me all about it, but this time we're going to leave the driving to his parents!

Monday, December 14
It's Day 8 of 12 Days of Giveaways -- keep watching for some of the best giveaways yet! And don't forget that 25 home viewers will win every day, so be sure to enter. Also, for almost a decade, RAY ROMANO starred in one of the most popular sitcoms on television. Now he's returning to TV with his brand new show, "Men of a Certain Age." He's so funny and will be here to tell Ellen all about it. Then, in 2004, Pat Tillman bravely left his job playing for the Arizona Cardinals to enlist in the US Army, and sadly, died in Afghanistan. His widow, MARIE TILLMAN, established a foundation in his honor to encourage civil service and inspire young leaders. It is an amazing organization and an important message, and Marie will be here today.
Tuesday, December 15
Today is going to be a great day! To start things off, Ellen's friend JOHN MAYER is here. He's one of the most amazing musicians -- and has 7 Grammys to prove it! Well, now he has only 6-and-a-half Grammys. One year, he thought Alicia Keyes should have won, so he broke his award in half and gave her part. How could you not love a guy like that? You'll also love his new song, "Heartbreak Warfare" -- which he'll perform today. And if having John Mayer weren't enough, today is Day 9 of 12 Days of Giveaways, and as always, you have a chance to win at home. Ellen also has another great gift for you -- the Top 6 dancers from "So You Think You Can Dance"! They're the best of the best and the competition is getting intense -- will you be able to pick the winner? Give it a shot when they show-off their amazing dance moves.
Wednesday, December 16
Ellen's 12 Days of Giveaways keep getting bigger every day, and the excitement in the studio keeps growing! You can share in the excitement with your chance to win -- but don't forget to enter online! Twenty-five lucky winners will see their names listed on the show every day -- tune in to see if you're one of them! PARIS HILTON knows a thing or two about 12 Days; last year she was Ellen's mascot, Hot Toddy. She also knows a thing or two about looking hot and smelling great, so she'll be bringing her new fragrance, "Siren," and new hair product, "The Celebrity Styler." Also, LEWIS BLACKWELL will stop by to show Ellen his new book, "The Life & Love of Trees," which is full of gorgeous photography and beautifully written stories. You can always use another idea for a great holiday gift!
Thursday, December 17
There is so much energy in the studio this week, and it keeps getting stronger. That's because it's Day 11 of Ellen's 12 Days of Giveaways, and she's saved the best for the last few days! Don't forget to log on to the website for your chance to win today's gifts too. Then, if you watched Michael Jackson's memorial, you fell in love with SHAHEEN JAFARGHOLI. He was actually handpicked by Michael to appear on his tour, and today he'll be singing the classic song "I'll Be There." Also, you know the lovable JOHN KRASINSKI from his role as Jim on "The Office," and now he's starring in the movie "It's Complicated" with some of the best comedians. You'll love him, but be careful ladies -- he's engaged now! And if there's someone who knows a thing or two about love, it's ROBIN THICKE. He's an incredible singer with a beautiful voice, and you won't want to miss his performance of "Sex Therapy" from his new CD.
Friday, December 18
12 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS
This year's 12 Days of Giveaways has been the biggest and best so far, and Ellen's audience has loved it, and it's not over yet! Today is Day 12 and Ellen has gifts that you will not believe. You'll want to win them too, and you have a chance to be one of the 25 lucky home winners -- if you enter online! You're still lucky though, because CRAIG FERGUSON will be here. He just wrote a new book, "American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot." Ellen will have the champagne ready -- the funny man just had his 1,000th show as host of "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson." Then, tonight is a big night for ZOE SALDANA. She's in the most anticipated movie of the year, "Avatar," which opens tonight. She prepared quite a bit for the movie -- she trained in Kung Fu for 7 months, went backpacking in a rain forest, and even learned a fake language!

Monday, December 7
The last time ZACH BRAFF was here, he promised he'd take me up in his plane. That hasn't happened yet -- I'll get to the bottom of it today. I'm sure he's been busy though. The funny guy is in his 9th season of "Scrubs," which might be his last. I'll get the details. Then, I couldn't believe it last season when ALLISON IRAHETA was voted off "American Idol." She is so good and has an amazing voice, but I know she'll be huge even though she didn't win. She's releasing her debut CD "Just Like You" and will perform one of her singles for us. And, I'll have another pair of castoffs from "So You Think You Can Dance" who, just like Allison, will show that even though they've been voted off, they still give a great performance. Also, it's Day 3 of my 12 Days of Giveaways, and you're gonna want to see what I'm giving away today! You could get the prizes too -- I'm giving my home viewers a chance to win!
Tuesday, December 8
I love my neighbors here on the Warner Brothers lot -- especially CLINT EASTWOOD. (I also do a really great impression of him.) He has been in legendary roles and directed Oscar-winning movies, and he's up to it again with his new film "Invictus." He doesn't go on talk shows often, but he's decided to come here, and I'm excited! Also, in the movie he featured an a cappella group called OVERTONE, and they'll be here to perform for us. Then, I absolutely love my friend, 7-year-old BRANDT BICKFORD. He's so smart -- last time he was here he taught me all about the solar system, so I thought he'd be great at testing out all the best toys this year! If you need ideas, you'll want to hear his reviews. You'd think the day couldn't get any better, but it does! That's because it's Day 4 of 12 Days of Giveaways, and you have another chance to win at home!
Wednesday, December 9
Today is Day 5 of 12 Days of Giveaways, and the amazing gifts just keep coming! Don't forget, you have a chance to win at home, so be sure to enter every day. Then, when HOWIE MANDEL was here last year, I gave him a giant bubble to walk around in so he wouldn't have to be concerned about germs. Now he wrote a book about his struggle with OCD and ADHD, and guess what he's standing in on the cover? My bubble! I'm sure he'll thank me for that when he's here today. In any case, he's always fun to have. He has always relied on comedy to keep his attitude up and it shows. Also, MARIE OSMOND has been in the entertainment industry for 45 years! She was first on TV when she was 4 years old, and since then has hosted talks shows, performed in theatre, had a music career, and now has a show in Las Vegas with her brother. If that weren't enough, she's also a designer and will show me her new bag collection.
Thursday, December 10
I'm halfway through the 12 Days of Giveaways, and the gifts only get better! You're gonna want the ones I have today, and if you enter online, you may just win them! Regardless, you're a winner if you watch the show today. That's because the hilarious STEVE HARVEY is here. Every year he's hosted BET's "Celebration of Gospel," and this year is their 10th anniversary. I know the 10-year anniversary gift is supposed to be tin, but I think he'd rather have some of my 12 Days gifts. Also, one of the stars of "The Office," MINDY KALING will chat with me. She's so funny, and she's not just an actress -- she's also written many episodes. A few months ago, Entertainment Weekly called her one of the 10 funniest actresses in Hollywood, so you won't want to miss it!
Friday, December 11
If you have kids, you know all about SELENA GOMEZ. She's so talented and has been in so many movies and TV shows -- and she's only 17 years old! She's now starring in the Disney Channel's "Wizards of Waverly Place." In addition to acting, she's also in a new band called SELENA GOMEZ & THE SCENE, and after chatting with me she'll perform a new song for us. Then, a couple months ago I asked my personal chef to come here and teach us a recipe. Now CHEF ROBERTO MARTIN will be back to share another one of his delicious recipes. Also, today is Day 7 of 12 Days of Giveaways, and I have a feeling Big Booty will be bringing in some huge gifts. I know you're going to want them, so you can enter online to win!

Monday, November 30
I 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 me about his engagement. We'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." They rarely perform on TV -- but they're on my show today! I've also found another batch of Hidden Audience Talents and I think they might be the greatest so far (and you thought the guy who could kick himself in the forehead 25 times was the best!).
Tuesday, December 1
ADAM LAMBERT was the runner-up on last season's "American Idol," and people haven't stopped talking about him since -- especially after his controversial performance at the American Music Awards! He's an amazingly talented performer, and today he'll finally be here to perform for us and chat with me. I've got a lot to ask him! Then, supermodel MARISA MILLER will be walking down the runway tonight at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show -- wearing a three-million-dollar bra! Since it's such an important job, she asked me for some modeling advice, so I'll have some tips for her today. Also, another couple has been voted off "So You Think You Can Dance," but I voted to have them here on my show to perform a routine for us. And don't forget, it's just two more days until I start spreading holiday cheer with my 12 Days of Giveaways. I have some great gifts this year!
Wednesday, December 2
For 30 years, MATT DILLON has been acting, and for 30 years women everywhere have been grateful! He's gone from edgy teen heartthrob to cute funny guy to just plain sexy. Now he's in "Armored" -- his 40th movie! Then, ASHLEY GREENE is one lucky person -- she's in the Twilight movies and gets to work with Robert Pattinson. They play sister and brother, and I'm sure it's been an amazing experience. Everyone is crazy about the latest movie, "New Moon." Also, you know I love animals. So does TIA TORRES, star of "Pit Bulls & Parolees." She knows that pit bulls are loving dogs that have a bad reputation, and she does what she can to rescue them. She's such an amazing woman. You'll want to hear her stories today. And tomorrow is the big day! I start my 12 Days of Giveaways and I've got some of the biggest gifts yet!
Thursday, December 3
12 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS BEGIN!
Are you excited? You should be! Today is the first day of my 12 Days of Giveaways! I've been planning this for the entire year, and I have some amazing gifts to give away to my favorite people -- my audience! I also have another gift for you -- my friend TOBEY MAGUIRE. (You don't get to keep him though.) He just had a second child this year, his son Otis. He loves being a father and I'm sure he'll have some adorable stories for us. He's in the upcoming movie "Brothers." Also, just like me, Cirque Du Soleil is well-known for their incredible acrobatic feats. Three of the contortionists from the production of KOOZA will be here to perform, and you won't want to miss it. What they can do is absolutely unbelievable!
Friday, December 4
12 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS CONTINUE!
The last time ZACH BRAFF was here, he promised he'd take me up in his plane. That hasn't happened yet -- I'll get to the bottom of it today. I'm sure he's been busy though. The funny guy is in his 9th season of "Scrubs," which might be his last. I'll get the details. Then, I couldn't believe it last season when ALLISON IRAHETA was voted off "American Idol." She is so good and has an amazing voice, but I know she'll be huge even though she didn't win. This week, her debut CD "Just Like You" is released, and she's here to perform the single "Friday I'll Be Over U." And, I'll have another pair of castoffs from "So You Think You Can Dance" who, just like Allison, will show that even though they've been voted off, they still give a great performance. Also, it's Day 2 of my 12 Days of Giveaways, and you're gonna want to see what I'm giving away today!
