Watch The Ellen DeGeneres Show

The Ellen Degeneres Show is a talk show hosted by television personality, comedian and actress Ellen Degeneres. The show revolves around the fun, comedic energy of Ellen. While technically a talk show, Ellen also brings in elements of popular media, game shows, prank shows and more. It debuted in 2003 and has since won a total of 32 Daytime Emmy Awards. It is currently one of the most popular shows on American daytime television and is syndicated in numerous countries besides the United States.

Every episode of The Ellen Degeneres show starts of with music. Ellen makes her entrance by dancing her way to the stage and encouraging the audience to dance with her. Some of her shows involve interviews with celebrities while others grab unknowns from the internet and elsewhere, sometimes launching them to international stardom in the process. The show pulls in very major movie stars, such as the Twilight cast, television stars, such as Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory and musicians, such as Taylor Swift.

The Ellen Degeneres Show utilizes segments in a similar fashion to nighttime talk shows. The audience is often invited to play games for money or prizes. The show also does feel-good giveaways to viewers in need on a regular basis. The games Ellen plays with the audience and guests are often comedic, but the real comedy comes in when Ellen pulls clips and fodder like autocorrect slip-ups from the internet. Perhaps the most popular of the show's segments are the pranks. These include having cast and crew scares in the back before the show and having crew members frighten guests. Another prank that is often seen on Ellen is having people stand in front of the camera not knowing that there is someone else behind them dancing.
