Monday, January 25
Happy Australia Day! Ellen is reaching out to the countries of the world, and in honor of Australia Day, she’s got a special Australian version of Blindfolded Musical Chairs -- with The Thunder from Down Under! These men certainly have their talents, but so does Ellen’s audience. She’s never been more proud than when she shows off her Hidden Audience Talents. (At least we think that’s pride.) Then, VALERIE BERTINELLI has been a Hollywood star for years, but like everyone else, she struggled with her weight. Now she’s discovered great ways to stay in shape, and will share them with you! Also, he’s Ellen’s next-door neighbor on the WB lot -- ZACHARY LEVI will stop by to tell Ellen about the new season of his hit show, “Chuck,” in which he plays an average guy turned super spy. Just like Ellen.

ELLEN’S BIRTHDAY SHOW, HARRY CONNICK JR.
It’s a huge day today! It’s Ellen’s Birthday Bash and her favorite people are here to celebrate! It’s going to be a day full of surprises -- for Ellen, for her audience, and for you! Starting the party will be one of her favorite “Idol” alums, the one and only ADAM LAMBERT. Ellen loves him, and he’ll give a special birthday performance for her. Then, Ellen’s good friend, the very funny HARRY CONNICK JR. will keep the fun going with some laughs and a game (hopefully he’ll do better than last time he was here). Also, here to celebrate is the hilarious WILL ARNETT. His wife, Amy Poehler, was here last year for Ellen’s birthday and brought a 250-foot roll of bubble wrap! Who knows what Will’s bringing today?! And to keep everyone dancing, five dancers from “This Is It” will be here, and they’re bringing a special birthday present! We’ve got even more birthday surprises planned, but you’ll have to watch to find out!
Wednesday, January 27
Two years ago, Ellen invited a small, little-known country music band to make their TV debut on the show. The name of the group was LADY ANTEBELLUM, and since appearing here they’ve become superstars! They’re back today and ready to give Ellen an exclusive performance of their hit, “Need You Now,” from their upcoming CD. They’ll also have all the latest details on what they’ve been up to, and their two Grammy nominations! Then, it’s hard to imagine a time when JENNA ELFMAN wasn’t on TV. After her hilarious run on “Dharma & Greg” and guest appearances on the best shows, she’s back with her latest comedy, “Accidentally on Purpose.” She’s pregnant with her second child, so Ellen will make sure she’s comfortable. Also, this season of “The Bachelor” is full of drama, and Ellen loves it! She’s spoken to Jake the Bachelor and some of the contestants, but to get an unbiased opinion, you have to ask the host CHRIS HARRISON. That’s exactly what Ellen plans to do! He’s here today and will spill all the drama.
Thursday, January 28
Get ready, ladies! MARIO LOPEZ is here today! That’s right, the gorgeous guy will be visiting Ellen today before he hosts “Miss America” on Saturday. Last time he was here, she finally got him to take off his shirt. Think she can do it again? She does. Then, the Winter Olympics are right around the corner, and silver medalist figure skater Sasha Cohen is stopping by. She’s trying to make it to this year’s Olympics, and will tell Ellen all about the exciting event. Also, CORINNE BAILEY RAE’S first album won the Grammy for Album of the Year, so her second one is bound to be great! Today she’ll perform “I’d Do It Again.”
Friday, January 29
JOSH DUHAMEL was once named Male Model of the Year, and even showed off his skills for Ellen! He'll be here today to tell her all about his latest movie, “When in Rome.” Perhaps he can give some advice to Ellen on how she can win over Italy in her Quest for World Domination! Then, MATTHEW BOMER arrives from the hit show “White Collar,” where he stars as a con man. Ellen will make sure to watch the silverware. Also, don’t miss the hilarious new Grammy-themed version of “Sumove It, Move It” -- the stakes are going to be higher than ever when someone competes for a huge Grammy prize! And Ellen has more hilarious web videos that will keep you laughing all weekend long.

Monday, January 18
'THE BACHELOR' JAKE PAVELKA
Put your feet up and enjoy your day off from work -- Ellen has a great show in store for you! Another season of "The Bachelor" has just gotten underway -- and the scandals have already begun. This season's bachelor, JAKE PAVELKA, will tell Ellen all about it. Then, country superstar KEITH URBAN is here to chat with Ellen about his four Grammy nominations. He's bringing his guitar... maybe Ellen can convince him to sing for everyone! Speaking of performing, the new hip-hop and electronica sensation LMFAO will be here to sing their latest hit, "La La La." Also, in October, Ellen saw a YouTube video of 10-year-old singing twins DARIUS & DEMETRICE GILLESPIE and brought them to the show. They were amazing and adorable, and they're back today! They'll tell Ellen everything that's happened since they were on (they're getting more attention from the girls!), and they'll have a brand new performance that you've got to see!
Tuesday, January 19
MATT MORRIS & JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE
DOUGLAS MURPHY is the true definition of a hero. He's an average guy who just happened to be waiting for a subway train when an elderly woman was accidentally pushed off the platform. He risked his life to save her -- just seconds before a train arrived -- and now he's here to tell Ellen all about it! If you've been following Ellen's tweets, you know that she loves the new musician MATT MORRIS. He was discovered by JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE; was the first musician signed to Justin's label -- and is now here to perform for Ellen! And who better to introduce Matt than the guy who found him? Justin Timberlake himself will be here! Then, JEFF BRIDGES has been nominated for four Academy Awards, and starred in an incredible variety of movies. Now he gets to add "talk show guest" to the list when he sits down with Ellen to talk about his latest project. Then, if you were a successful fashion designer who was dressing the stars, what would you want to do next? TOM FORD decided to direct movies! It was the right decision -- his debut film, "A Single Man," is getting Oscar buzz!
Wednesday, January 20
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 new movie, "Legion." Then, "The Bachelor" has just gotten started, and no one can stop talking about the 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!
Thursday, January 21
It's awards season in the film industry, and COLIN FIRTH is going to be busy! He's in the movie “A Single Man” -- and has been nominated for just about every Best Actor award there is! He's here to chat with Ellen. Then, DR. DREW is one of the most supportive people you can find; when people are at their lowest, he stands by them and helps them through the tough times. His show, ”Celebrity Rehab,“ is now in its third season -- and he's got all the details. Also, ORIANTHI is proving herself to be quite a musician. She was handpicked by Michael Jackson to perform on his tour, and appears in the film “This Is It.” Now she's here to perform her hit song for Ellen, “According to You.”
Friday, January 22
It’s been almost four years since SEAN HAYES was on the show, and he’s back today! The funnyman will update everyone on what he’s been doing since “Will & Grace.” Hopefully, it involved a lot of relaxation, because he’s going to Broadway to star in “Promises, Promises” with Kristin Chenoweth. Ellen starred in a musical with Kristin too -- it was called “Ellen: The Musical.” Today she’ll leave the music to a professional -- specifically INGRID MICHAELSON, who has performed with one of Ellen’s favorite musicians, Joshua Radin, and opened for Jason Mraz. Now she’s coming here to perform her hit song, “Maybe.”

Monday, January 11
MARY J. BLIGE
Ellen always loves it when the incredible MARY J. BLIGE performs -- one time, Mary even surprised Ellen for her birthday! Now the multiple Grammy-winning singer is back. Last year was a big year for her -- she even had the honor of performing at President Obama's inaugural celebration. It looks like 2010 will be a great year for her -- she's starting it off by coming to the show! MATTHEW BRODERICK is also starting the year off on the right foot! After three years, he's returning to chat with Ellen... and a lot has changed for him; his son is now 7 years old, and Matthew and his wife, Sarah Jessica Parker, now have 6-month-old twin girls! He'll tell Ellen all about the adorable kids and about his new movie, "Wonderful World." And, from "The Biggest Loser," trainer JILLIAN MICHAELS will be visiting and demonstrating a workout routine -- so don't break those resolutions just yet!
Tuesday, January 12
Ellen has her work cut out for her if she wants to achieve her goal for 2010: world domination. But if there's one person who can give her some advice, it's BETTE MIDLER. Bette may not have conquered the world, but she's come close! At the very least, she's conquered Las Vegas, where after two years she's ending her show later this month, but not without first stopping by to chat with Ellen! Then, one of Ellen's favorite shows this season is "Modern Family," and today the absolutely hilarious ERIC STONESTREET will be here to share all the behind-the-scenes details. Also, many people have considered going vegan but thought it would be too hard. Ellen has shown everyone just how easy it can be, and today CHEF TAL RONNEN will be here to teach one of his easy-to-make and delicious vegan recipes from his new cookbook, "The Conscious Cook." We know what you'll be making for dinner tonight!
Wednesday, January 13
The end is near! The end of "Lost," that is. The final season of the hit show (and one of Ellen's all-time favorites) starts this February. JOSH HOLLOWAY visits today to share some details about the highly anticipated season. Then, in her quest for world domination in 2010, Ellen is going to need some help! She'll get some tips on England from MATTHEW GOODE. He's stopping by to talk about his latest movies, "A Single Man" and the upcoming "Leap Year." Then, this year, the country music group GLORIANA made quite a name for themselves with their hit song "Wild at Heart." They even won the American Music Award over Lady Gaga for Best New Artist! Now they're here to perform their next hit, "How Far Do You Wanna Go?”
Thursday, January 14
It’s time to play a round of Ellen’s favorite game: Blindfolded Musical Chairs! Laugh as audience members stumble and bump around looking for chairs without being able to see. They’d better keep an eye on their watches though, that’s because the World Champion sleight-of-hand magician SHAWN FARQUHAR will be here to show Ellen his amazing tricks. Then, “Grey’s Anatomy” star ELLEN POMPEO will be here to tell Ellen all about the show, her marriage and her new baby girl. Also, from “The Big Bang Theory," JIM PARSONS will be here all the way fromâ€¦ the other side of the WB lot. He plays a genius on the show, so we’ll see how he stands up to Ellen’s IQ test!
Friday, January 15
It’s an exciting time for MARK WAHLBERG -- and not just because he’ll be here on the show. His wife is about to give birth to a baby girl! They’ll be kept busy; this is now their fourth child. Mark is also in the new movie “The Lovely Bones” and will be stopping by to tell Ellen all about it. Then, as Ellen prepares her quest for world domination, she’ll want to get some tips from RICKY GERVAIS. He created “The Office” in the UK and it now has versions in America, Canada, Germany, France and Chile! This month he’s even in charge of the Globe -- the Golden Globe that is. He’s hosting the awards show in just a few days and will be here to chat with Ellen before the big event.

Monday, January 4
It’s the first show of the 2010, and Ellen has a lot of plans for this year! Last month, she loved doing 12 Days of Giveaways so much, she’s been looking around to see if there are any more gifts to surprise today’s audience. You’ll have to watch to find out if she got her hands on anything! Then, the very handsome CHRISTIAN SLATER will drop by to tell Ellen all about his holidays. He recently turned 40 and he’s looking great -- especially in his show, “The Forgotten.” And last month, RUSSELL FERGUSON won “So You Think You Can Dance,” now he’s here to tell Ellen what his plans are -- and to show off his prize-winning moves! Also, music legends RICKIE LEE JONES & BEN HARPER have teamed up to create the beautiful song “Old Enough,” and they’ll both be here to perform. Don’t miss it!
Tuesday, January 5
One of Ellen’s all-time favorite kids is back! The incredibly talented EMILY BEAR will update everyone on what she’s doing, and will treat us all to an amazing performance at the piano. She’s composed new songs just for Ellen, so you’ll want to see what she brings this time! Then, she won an Academy Award for her role as the Queen of England, now HELEN MIRREN is playing the wife of Leo Tolstoy in the new movie, “The Station.” It’s her first time on the show, so Ellen will make sure she doesn’t forget it! Also, you’ve been hearing the hit song “TiK ToK” for months, but you may not know who sings it. It’s the first single from KE$HA, and her debut CD, “Animal,” is out today. To celebrate, she’s here to perform for everyone.
Wednesday, January 6
Tonight is the People’s Choice Awards, -- and Ellen is nominated for Favorite TV Talk Show! Tune in to find out who wins. Today’s show is Ellen’s choice -- Ellen chose to have QUEEN LATIFAH here. She’ll stop by the show today before her fourth time hosting the awards, and this is her tenth time on Ellen -- she’s always a lot of fun. Then, fun is just one of the many, many words that can describe RICHARD SIMMONS. He’s releasing the fifth volume of his popular “Sweating to the Oldies” -- and will do a demo for everyone! Who knows what else he’ll do?! No one ever does! And today it’s time for another try at the hilarious game, “I’m Gonna Rip Your Face Off”!
Thursday, January 7
You’ve seen an absolutely adorable 5-year-old girl in several commercials, including one with Justin Timberlake and Peyton Manning. Her name is KYLIE KIM, and she’ll be here to tell Ellen what it was like to work with those two amazing guys. She is so cute, you won’t want to miss it! Then, one of Ellen’s favorite guests, WANDA SYKES, has been here for some of the best shows! She’s been here for Halloween, Park Shows, and even Ellen’s birthday. So with all that experience, Wanda is all set for her own talk show, “The Wanda Sykes Show.” She and Ellen will chat about all the things talk show hosts talk about. Which is a lot. You also won’t want to miss today’s group of audience members -- they’ll be showing off their amazing hidden talents!
Friday, January 8
Just like Ellen, JACKIE CHAN does all his own stunts! He shows what he’s got in the new movie, “Spy Next Door,” and will be dropping by to chat with Ellen today. Ellen will make sure to hide the expensive china -- last time he broke her vases! She broke something tooâ€¦ a bottle over his head! Then, you know ANNA KENDRICK from the “Twilight” movies, now she’s co-starring with none other than George Clooney in the amazing new film, “Up in the Air.” When she visits Ellen today, the two will be able to swap their favorite Clooney stories!

Monday, December 28
By now you probably know I love the 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 new CD, “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.” Then, I 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, I decided to feature some of the dancers from this past season of “So You Think You Can Dance,” so, I’ll have a few of the dancers right here.
Tuesday, December 29
Today is the day! He’s here, the hottest man on the planet right now -- ROBERT PATTINSON! The gorgeous guy has been stealing the hearts of women across the world since he played the vampire Edward in “Twilight”. Now he’s in the sequel “New Moon” and is being literally mobbed everywhere he goes. Today he’s coming here and I can’t wait! Also, earlier this year I met a 13-year-old fiddler named JUSTUS RIVERA after Ashton Kutcher tweeted about him. He’s self-taught and plays on the streets of Philadelphia to help support his family. You have to see him to believe it.
Wednesday, December 30
I’ve been watching DAKOTA FANNING grow into a beautiful young woman over the years, and I feel like I’m responsible for her success. She once played a younger version of me on my sitcom -- and now she’s in one of the biggest movies of the year, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.” She gets to work with Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner... I’m sure she’ll thank me when she’s on the show today. Then, I have some huge surprises for my home viewers -- you won’t want to miss what I’ve got planned for today! I’ll give you a hint: it involves a lot of dough. Also I’ll make sure to tweet SEAN “DIDDY” COMBS before he arrives. He was the one who introduced me to Twitter -- and now I have almost 4 million followers! I once made him try to identify his Ciroc Vodka in a blind taste test. He got drunk. He still got it right though. Now they've introduced Ciroc Coconut and Ciroc Red Berry -- I wonder what will happen if I make him taste test both flavors.
Thursday, December 31
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. 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 album “The Circle.” Now they’re on my show to perform their single “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 and I want to hear everything! Then, KELLY OSBOURNE AND LOUIS VAN AMSTEL made it all the way to the finals of “Dancing With the Stars” this season! Kelly will tell me all about her unexpected life-changing experience and, of course, they'll perform a dance for us.
Friday, January 1
It’s been four years since she came back to the show, now JENNIFER GARNER is here again! 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 in the 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 on the show. He’ll be performing the hit song “Candy” from his album “Sunny Side Up.”
