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!

Monday, November 23
I always thought I was good at Ping-Pong... until I saw a YouTube video of XIN-XUE FENG. She is absolutely amazing, and she's only 7 years old! I was so impressed with her that we're flying her all the way from China to show you what she can do. It'll be her first time on TV and you won't want to miss it. 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 new album, "The Circle." Now they're on my show to perform their new song "We Weren't Born to Follow," and I'll see if I can convince them to play one of their classics, too. Then I'll get a chance to talk to Jon Bon Jovi. Just this summer, he and Richie Sambora were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and I want to hear all about it! Then, KELLY OSBOURNE AND LOUIS VAN AMSTEL made it all the way to the finals of “Dancing With the Stars”! Kelly will tell me all about her unexpected life-changing experience and, of course, they’ll perform a dance for us.
Tuesday, November 24
I loved KRIS ALLEN when he was on "American Idol" last season, and I'm not the only one. A record number of votes were cast and he won. Now, just months after his big win, he's released his first album and will be here to perform "Live Like We're Dying." If it's anything like his cover of Kanye's "Heartless," you won't want to miss it! Then, the beautiful Oscar-winning PENELOPE CRUZ is here to chat with me. Last time she was here, I told her I thought she would win the Oscar for "Vicky Christina Barcelona" -- and she did. Now she delivers another amazing performance in the new movie "Broken Embraces." Also, I think someone has finally found my purse, so we'll find out the lucky winner of the $15,000! And I've got a batch of hilarious winter-themed web videos to keep you laughing through another cold winter.
Wednesday, November 25
I love SANDRA BULLOCK! She's fun, she's funny, she's brilliant and she's beautiful. Oh, and she let me hit her over the head with a bottle once, too. She's had an amazing year; this summer "The Proposal" was the biggest movie of her career, and now she's in the incredibly inspiring new film, "The Blind Side." Also, we may be nearing the end of November, but that doesn't mean I'm finished with Dough-vember! I'm planning a huge surprise for a very deserving audience member, so don't miss the show.
Thursday, November 26
Every time I see DREW BARRYMORE, she’s doing something new! She directed her first movie, “Whip It," in which she also stars. Drew is always a fun guest -- when she was on before, I made her guess the mystery word “mushroom" and it took forever! (I still don’t know why she thought moss was a pizza topping…) Today I’ll have another fun game ready for her! Then, what do I have in common with four tattooed, motorcycle-riding guys? We love animals! The incredible group RESCUE INK will be on to talk about the amazing work they do. When these tough guys hear that a pet is being abused, they confront the owner and rescue the animal on the spot! They’re like guardian angels for dogs! Also, I’ve got another group of brave people who will show their embarrassing photos -- which means it’s time for Bad Paid-For Photos -- Live! You won’t want to miss this show!
Friday, November 27
It’s the day after Thanksgiving and that means I’m full of thanks, so what’s better than giving you a great new show? To start, I’m giving someone a huge Dough-vember surprise today. I’ve picked someone who really deserves it -- they’ve been having a hard time, but are keeping such a positive attitude -- and I have something huge is store for them! Then, I’m giving you one of the biggest guests yet. LADY GAGA is the hottest star of 2009 -- and she made that known at the American Music Awards on Sunday! She’s gonna perform today, and I hear she’s planning something really cool just for us. Also, I’m thankful for KYM DOUGLAS. She always has some great beauty tips you can do at home, and is always willing to demonstrate some of the crazier ones. Like the time she got in a bathtub full of wine! And I’m thankful for one more thing -- you!

Monday, November 2
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 new 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 since Dough-vember is starting, 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 just released a new 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 last week -- they just 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!
Tuesday, November 3
You may know MO’NIQUE as a comedian, but she will bring you to tears in the powerful new movie “Precious,” with her absolutely amazing performance as an abusive mother. I just can’t stop talking about this movie -- it is so moving and so sad. Today she’s here to tell me all about it. There is already talk about Mo’Nique being nominated for an Oscar, and I think it would be well-deserved. Then, on this season of “The Biggest Loser,” there is an amazing woman named ABBY RIKE. She lost her family years ago in a horrible accident, and she finally decided to start taking care of herself. She is so inspiring -- last week she volunteered to be eliminated so her teammates could keep going. Now she’s here to tell me what it’s been like. Also, with over 80 million YouTube views, a song on the pop Top 20, and signing with Usher, you’d have no idea that my next guest was only 15! JUSTIN BIEBER is the newest teen sensation and will be making his television debut on my show today when he performs his hit song “One Time.” He also has a huge following on Twitter. I know for a fact -- they’ve all been tweeting me to have him here!
Wednesday, November 4
By now you probably know I love the new movie “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! I can’t wait to hear all about the experience. She’ll also be telling me about her brand new CD, “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.” Then, I recently read a book by JONATHAN SAFRAN FOER called “Eating Animals,” and I just had to share it with you. He’ll be here to talk to me 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. Also, this season I decided to feature some of the dancers from “So You Think You Can Dance,” so after this week’s elimination, I’ll have the contestants right here.
Thursday, November 5
I love my next guest so much, I had her here for my birthday show last year! I can’t stop laughing when AMY POEHLER is around. Her show “Parks & Recreation” is hilarious, and I’m sure she has some fun stories about it. Her son, Archie, just had his first birthday; I hope she threw him a big party! Then, you know the funny FRAN DRESCHER from “The Nanny.” Now she’s started her own all-natural skincare line and will be showing it to all of us. As a cancer survivor, she’s donating a portion of the proceeds to her Cancer Shmancer Foundation. Also, you know I love games, and I have a brand new one to show you. If you thought Deep Dish Dig was crazy, and if you loved Sumove-it Move-it, then you won’t believe what I’m doing today. It’s literally the biggest game I’ve done so far! You’ll have to watch today to see what it is.
Friday, November 6
Whenever PAMELA ANDERSON is here, I know something crazy is going to happen! In the past, she’s done flips over my furniture and stripped down to a bikini. Who knows what she’ll do today? One thing I do know -- she’ll tell me about her new perfume, “Malibu.” There are actually two fragrances, one for “elegant nights” and one for “playful days.” Obviously, I’m wearing both. Then, we all know that kids are our future, so today I’m giving you a glimpse of our future gadgets when I welcome some kid inventors. They’ll be showing me their amazing new inventions, so don’t miss it!

Friday, October 16, 2009
Today I welcome "Desperate Housewives" star MARCIA CROSS back to the show. I'm sure she'll tell me how her adorable twin girls are doing. They're about 2-and-a-half years old and must be an armful for Marcia! She'll also keep me updated on all the new Housewives drama. Then, DYLAN WALSH is coming by to tell me about his new thriller, "Stepfather," in which he plays -- you guessed it, the stepfather! Then, I'm playing my new segment "Word of Mystery" again, and will try to make my audience members say a secret word for a big prize. Just remember, it's completely different than my "Mystery Word" segment. Completely.
Monday, October 19, 2009
I've got a fun show for you today! I love Twitter, and today I did another Twitter challenge at UC San Diego. Over a thousand people show up this time! You won't believe what I have them do. They're playing for a big prize this time -- tickets to one of my 12 Days of Giveaways shows. Then, the beautiful HAYDEN PANETTIERE is dropping by to chat with me. She ends up stripping right in front of everyone, and you won't guess what she's wearing underneath! She also volunteered to be dunked for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I've got a surprise guest to throw the balls. He might just be the worst thrower I've had on the show, and if you've seen Harry Connick Jr., you know that's saying something. Then, you know I love reality shows, and one of my favorites is "Dancing with the Stars." That's why I'm excited to have AARON CARTER & KARINA SMIRNOFF here today. He had been doing well, but barely escaped elimination this week, but they'll do a great dance for me today! Also, 21-year-old music sensation ANGEL TAYLOR will be making her television debut on my show! She's been compared to some of the greatest names in music. Her new CD, "Love Travels," just came out -- and she'll be singing her song "Like You Do."
Tuesday, October 20, 2009
The other day, one of my producers showed me a video of a kid who may be the youngest hip-hop dancer -- he's only 4! He's one of the coolest 4-year-olds I've seen... MILES BROWN will be on the show to chat with me and dance for all of us. Then, my friend LAUREN GRAHAM is here. She just announced that she'll be on the show "Parenthood." Every time she's here, she's always up to something crazy. She's one of my favorite guests, so I can't wait. Also, in the last couple of years, ONEREPUBLIC went from hardly being known to being one of the most popular bands -- you might remember them performing "Apologize" on my show. Now they've got a new album coming up called "Waking Up," and will be performing the single "All the Right Moves." It's gonna be huge! And, with all the hidden camera tricks I've done at Starbucks in the last year, people are starting to figure out what's happening. But I'm not done with my hidden camera fun, so I've just picked a new location. It's gonna be hilarious, and who knows... the next time you go to your favorite store, you could be on my show!
Wednesday, October 21, 2009
Get ready, ladies! The very hot MARIO LOPEZ will be here today. Every time he's on the show I try and get him to take off his shirt for you. I promise I'll get him to do it eventually -- maybe it'll be today! He's the host of "Extra," and will keep me updated on the latest news. Then, my personal chef ROBERTO MARTIN is coming back to teach us a new recipe. Last time he taught us Vegan Tacos, which were so delicious. He's an amazing chef and a great guy, and you're gonna want to see what he's cooking for us today. Also, I'm sending Jeannie, my receptionist, somewhere in the country today. Last time I sent her to Miami with the Golddigger machine and ended up giving her brand new GMC Terrain to a viewer. Now, a GMC dealer in Dallas gave me great deal on a brand new one! I wonder what I should do with it...
Thursday, October 22, 2009
Today I'm 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, my friend, the hilarious DAVID SPADE, is also doing an amazing thing. He's been a big supporter of firefighters here in L.A., especially after the wildfires of about two months ago. To thank them for their hard work, he's inviting hundreds of firefighters to a free comedy show later this month. He'll be here to tell me more about this really cool event. Also, JOHN C. REILLY will be here for the first time! I can't believe he hasn't been here yet, but today the talented actor will finally chat with me. He's been in some of the best movies, like "Chicago," "Gangs of New York" and "The Hours," and now he's in the new movie "Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant" -- which I can't wait to hear about. 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 just released his second album, "The Boy Who Knew Too Much," and will perform his hit "Blame It on the Girls" for me.
