Right before 11 News at 4 p.m., you can see Ellen. KHOU’s Len Cannon went to L.A. to talk with the talk show host and get a peek behind the scenes.
Now in its 10th season, Ellen is one of the hottest tickets in town, with audiences booked through November.
Len got to spend some time in what Tom Hanks calls the "Riff Raff room" where people who don’t fit in the audience can go to watch the show.
One Bellaire resident traveled all the way to Los Angeles to watch the show in person.
"She has always been such an inspiration—her charity work, just her personality, the love she has for people and life," said Sandra Eastham.
"So when Ellen is kicking back, what is Ellen doing?" asked Len.
"I synchronize swim, all by myself," said Ellen.
