Monday, September 28
It's been 3 years since the gorgeous REBECCA ROMIJN has been here, and a lot has happened since then! She's now a mother to 9-month-old twins with her husband Jerry O'Connell, and if that weren't enough for her, she's starring in the new television series "Witches of Eastwick." (Jerry knows he's got his hands full for the next year!) Last time, she told me she has a vineyard and wants to make wine -- I hope she brings samples! Also, I've got another batch of hilarious commercials from around the world. You won't believe some of them!
Tuesday, September 29
Every time I see DREW BARRYMORE, she's doing something new! She just directed her first movie, "Whip It," in which she also stars. Drew's 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!
Wednesday, September 30
I have no idea what to expect from HEIDI KLUM today! The last time she was here, I asked if she'd donate her dress to charity -- and she took it off onstage! Now, Heidi is just days away from giving birth to her fourth child, so I have a special game in store to make sure she's ready. You're gonna want to see it! I know she'll do well though -- even with her hands full at home, she's great as the host of "Project Runway," and she'll soon be releasing her new photo book, "Rankin's Heidilicious." Then, you'll love my next guest, ladies -- BRAD PAISLEY is here! The cute country singer will perform his hit "Welcome to the Future" from his new CD, "American Saturday Night." Hands off though -- he's married with two adorable little boys! Also, I've got another group of brave people who are coming on the show to let you see their Bad Paid For Photos! They'll be here in the studio, so we can see how they compare now. I can't wait!
Thursday, October 1
Today is gonna be a great show! You might remember that Glamour magazine recently ran a photo of a plus-size model. It got such a fantastic response that in their next issue, they're featuring a nude pictorial with plus-size models! Now, four of those models are on my show today to tell me all about the experience -- and the need to include normal women in fashion magazines. It's about time! I can't wait to hear their story. Also, Breast Cancer Awareness month starts today, and I'm doing my part to help find the cure! My show is going pink as I talk about different ways you can join the cause. Last year we raised $568,000, and this year we plan to raise even more! This summer, when I guest-judged "So You Think You Can Dance," MELISSA SANDVIG and ADE OBAYOMI performed an unbelievably touching piece about a woman and her friend coping with breast cancer. I loved it so much, I had to have them on the show today! Then, KATE WALSH from "Private Practice" will be joining me. Breast cancer has touched her life too -- her mother is a survivor. The third season of her show starts tonight, and I'm gonna find out what's in store this year! Be sure to check back all month to find ways you can be a part of "Ellen for the Cure."
Friday, October 2
I'm excited about today's show! He always brings his friends -- JACK HANNA is here with an amazing assortment of animals: bears, toucans, camels and slow lorises (I think he just made up that last one)! You won't want to miss what he's bringing today. You're also not gonna want to miss FELICITY HUFFMAN. The sixth season of "Desperate Housewives" is starting and I'm sure they'll be plenty of housewife drama to talk about! Last time she was here, she told that she loves to play games, so maybe she's up for a challenge! Then, the incredible ROGER DALTREY is stopping by. He's been all over the world with The Who, now he's on a solo tour "Use It or Lose It," and will perform "I Can See for Miles"! I can't wait!

Monday, September 21
JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT
I love having her here -- JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT will be on my show today for the 9th time! She's starting the fifth season of the incredibly successful "Ghost Whisperer." Last time she was here, she told me she was dating Jamie Kennedy -- now there are rumors that the two are engaged! So far, they've denied it... but I'm gonna get to the bottom of it! KELLY OSBOURNE isn't denying any marriage rumors though -- earlier this year she became engaged to model Luke Worrall. Kelly is on this season's "Dancing with the Stars" with LOUIS VAN AMSTEL, and the two will be on my show for the very first time to tell me everything about it!
Tuesday, September 22
It's been four years since she's been on the show, now JENNIFER GARNER is coming 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 is now in the upcoming movie, "The Invention of Lying." Also, if you saw my TBS special this summer, you saw the absolutely hilarious comedian JOE WONG. (And if you didn't see my TBS special -- how dare you!) He was so great, I'm bringing him on the show today and you've got to see him! I also have Scottish musician PAOLO NUTINI here and he'll be performing. He'll be performing the hit song "Candy" from his new album "Sunny Side Up."
Wednesday, September 23
COURTENEY COX ARQUETTE
My friend COURTENEY COX ARQUETTE is on the show today! Last time, she told me she didn't have any stories to share, but I'm sure she'll have plenty to talk about with her new 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 my show for the first time! (It's true... I 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, September 24
CHRISTINA APPLEGATE is on the show today! Last time she was on, I scared her twice -- once in her dressing room, and again when she was onstage! She was a good sport as always, but I'll be using a mirror to look around corners all day today... or maybe I'll just have Mama walk in front of me! Christina, who recently battled breast cancer, will talk about being an ambassador for Lee National Denim Day, the largest one-day fundraiser for breast cancer research. Then, I'll introduce you to a band out of England that everyone is keeping their eyes on -- THE NOISETTES will perform "Don't Upset the Rhythm" from their upcoming CD, "Wild Young Hearts." It's gonna be a fun show, and you never know who else might stop by!
Friday, September 25
TOM DELAY & CHERYL BURKE
This week is the big start of “Dancing with the Stars”! Former House Majority Leader TOM DELAY and professional dancer CHERYL BURKE will come by and fill me in on all the details from the premiere, and perform a dance number for us. I can’t wait to see it! Then, the star of one of my favorite shows, PATRICIA ARQUETTE is here today! She’ll be telling me all about her show “Medium.” This season, it’s moving from NBC to CBS… I just hope they remembered to bubble wrap the dishes! And I’ve got a new game to show you! It’s so much fun -- I don’t want to ruin the surprise -- you’ll just have to watch!

Monday, September 14
Whoever wins “America’s Got Talent” will need SHARON OSBOURNE to like them! As one of the judges, her opinion is worth a lot -- a million dollars to be exact! Her brutally honest comments might not go so well with some of the contestants, but always make for a good interview! Then, I held her when she was 2 days old, now she’s becoming a movie star! The daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, RUMER WILLIS, is here to tell me all about “Sorority Row." I hear she was so good at screaming, she freaked out some of the film crew! Maybe I’ll see how my crew holds up….
Tuesday, September 15
I love her so much -- QUEEN LATIFAH is on the show today! She’s always up for a game… one time it involved kazoos! (She sure knows how to play one!) Maybe I’ll create a game with kazoos and blindfolds! She’s returning to her hip-hop roots with her new album “Persona,” and she’s here to perform one of the songs, “Cue the Rain”!
Wednesday, September 16
JENNIFER ANISTON was the very first guest I had on my show -- now my friend is coming back! She’s in the new 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 and make that work out! Then, it’s their first time on my show and I can’t wait, THE DAVE MATTHEWS BAND is here! They’ll be performing “You and Me” from their #1 album “Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King.” Since it’s their first time here, I’ll find a way to make their performance extra special!
Thursday, September 17
I blindfolded him years before I started blindfolding my audience contestants -- now TED DANSON is back! He’s on the new HBO series “Bored to Death,” but don’t worry, he’s anything but boring! (Last time, he accidentally brought red high heels!) Also, ANNA TORV is on my show for the first time to talk about the second season of “Fringe.” There must have been good chemistry on-set for the first season -- she married one of her co-stars! Then, one of my very favorite musicians, MAXWELL, will be performing. His newest album, “BLACKsummers’night,” is his first in eight years, and this is his first time on my show! If you haven’t heard of him, don’t miss his performance of “Pretty Wings”! He’s incredible!
Friday, September 18
NEIL PATRICK HARRIS
He’s my good friend and an incredibly talented person, NEIL PATRICK HARRIS is on today! Neil is hosting the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards this weekend and he’s nominated for Best Supporting Actor! The last few times he was here, he broke a light bulb with his mind, pushed metal spikes through my body, lit his wallet on fire and even chopped off his own head! I can’t imagine what he’s gonna do this time! Then, the last time ANNA FARIS was on, she brought me some giant high heels she wore in “House Bunny.” Now she’s in “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” a movie where it rains food. Also, COLBIE CAILLAT has the #1 album in the country right now, and she’s performing on my show! She’ll be singing her single “Fallin’ for You” from her album “Breakthrough.”

| Ellen DeGeneres Replacing Paula Abdul on Idol|
|people.com reports: "Ellen DeGeneres is taking Paula Abdul's place as the fourth judge on American Idol. |
"DeGeneres will sit alongside Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi and offer her own unique perspective to the contestants throughout the competition," Fox television says in a statement.
DeGeneres, 51, begins her stint after the audition rounds, which have featured a rotating group of celebrity guest judges including Shania Twain, Victoria Beckham, Mary J. Blige, Joe Jonas and Kristin Chenoweth.
"I'm going to have a day job and a night job," DeGeneres said at her talk show taping Wednesday, assuring her audience that The Ellen DeGeneres Show will continue. "This is so exciting for me."
Abdul abruptly announced in August, just before the start of American Idol's ninth season, that with "sadness in my heart" she was leaving the highly rated show hosted by Ryan Seacrest.
In the taping for Thursday's Ellen DeGeneres Show, DeGeneres said the deal had been in the works for the last couple of weeks. "I've been dying to tell everyone," she says. "It's just been so hard to keep it a secret and we just finally got the OK and I'm so excited. It is going to be so much fun.""

Monday, September 7
Can you believe it? There's only one more day until my season premiere! It's going to be a huge show! Today is also a day to be excited -- MARIAH CAREY is on the show! We'll talk about her marriage to Nick Cannon… there's all sorts of rumors about the two that I want to know about. (I hear she's pregnant, and if she doesn't give me an answer, I've got a foolproof way to find out!) Mariah is also quite the businesswoman, and she'll tell me all about her new perfume. (There's something about notes, but I might be thinking about the piano.) Then, I've got an adorable 5-year-old named MILAN SIMONE TUTTLE who will show me all of her basketball tricks! She's amazing! I'll also try a new twist on that stupid, stupid game “Doughnuts for Dough,” and see if it's less stupid. (I doubt it.) Also today, my 200,000th audience member walks through the door -- so I've got a big surprise waiting! And don't forget, you can't miss my Season 7 Premiere tomorrow!
Tuesday, September 8
It's finally here! I'm so excited! Today is my Season 7 Premiere! I've spent all summer getting ready for it, and you won't be disappointed! Who better to join me for the big day then the sexy, the suave, the frequently shirtless DAVID BECKHAM?! I'm sure you've seen his Emporio Armani underwear ads everywhere -- I'll get him to spill all the details of those photoshoots! And he has no idea what surprise I've got in store for him -- it's positively HUGE! People are talking about it all around the world! Then, I've got the massively popular LADY GAGA performing “Love Game”! She always brings her unique style when she performs, and today is no exception! Also, over the summer you may have seen DONALD LEAKE fail miserably on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” when he answered a question wrong (the right answer was “Ellen DeGeneres”!), so I'm giving him a chance to redeem himself! And if that wasn't enough -- I'm starting today's show with the biggest surprise yet! You're gonna see me do something I've never done on the show before! But you'll have to watch to find out!
Wednesday, September 9
THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA
Y'all better hold on to your wigs! THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA are on the show today! All five of them will be here, and I can't wait to hear what they're gonna say (or do!) I just hope the interview doesn't spill out to the street! Regardless, you'll want to check it out. (Just don't check Sheree, boo.) And it's not just housewives from Atlanta who have their eyes on ANTONIO BANDERAS! Women from all over wish he was their other man! They're in luck -- he's in the movie “The Other Man” and will be telling me all about it! The last time he was on, he brought me homemade paella -- I hope he's cooking up something delicious again!
Thursday, September 10
I've got a great show today, and starting it off is the gorgeous KATE BECKINSALE! She's in the upcoming thriller “Whiteout,” which takes place in Antarctica, but I'm more than happy to just turn up the air conditioner for her! Then, from “The Bachelorette,” the newly engaged JILLIAN HARRIS & ED SWIDERSKI are here. It was a long road full of twists, turns and itty-bitty green shorts. Since the show ended, rumors swirled that Ed has been cheating the whole time -- now we get the answers directly from them! Also, PITBULL is performing his hit song “Calle Ocho” from his new album “Rebelution.” You know I love this song! I'm sure you remember I used it for my special surprise on the season premiere Tuesday. (Really, how could you forget something like that?!) And, I've said it a hundred times: I've got the best audience in the world! You'll see for yourself when I show you what might just be the most talented audience members ever -- in my favorite segment: Hidden Audience Talents!
Friday, September 11
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 Mariah Carey, is the host of “America's Got Talent,” and is the chairman of the new 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!
