Hopes To Prove That Variety Is Spice of Life

Ellen Gets New, One-Off Gig

Proving once again that she’s the most popular lesbian in Hollywood, Ellen Degeneres agreed to organize a two-hour variety show for TBS.

“Ellen’s Really Big Show” will feature performances by comedic and musical talents and be shot at TCF, organized by HBO and AEG Live, at Caesars Palace.

It premieres Sunday, Nov. 18, on TBS, a title sponsor for TCF.

“We are truly thrilled to be working with the enormously talented Ellen DeGeneres on her first TBS special,” said Michael Wright, senior vp in charge of the Content Creation Group for TBS, TNT and TCM. “It’s especially exciting to see her bring back the variety special format, which for decades provided television with some of its most memorable performances.”

Said DeGeneres: “I’m very happy to be working with TBS. I usually put two TBS of sugar in my coffee every day, so this is a dream come true for me.”

So, while girlfriend Portia de Rossi’s dyking it up, Ellen will ham it up. These girls are well on their way to ruling the world and, quite possibly, the universe.
