I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend. I took a lot of time to think about what I’m thankful for, and you were at the top of my list. I love what I do, and I wouldn’t be able to do it if it weren’t for you.

I’m so excited for this week because Damian Lewis from my favorite show on television, "Homeland," is here! I can’t even begin to tell you how good the show is. You have to watch it. If you don’t have Showtime, you should make friends with someone who does. That’s why I’m friends with Harry Connick Jr.

And Khloe Kardashian is here! You’ve seen her on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," “Khloe and Lamar" and “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Khloe Kardashian!” I may have to fact-check that last one.

Also, some of my favorite funny people are here. My good friend Wanda Sykes is back. I just love her. She’s gonna catch me up on her two adorable children. Last time, they were just starting to talk, which means now they must be 4… or 8. I have no idea. I don’t have children.

I’m talking to the hilarious Ray Romano, who’s getting rave reviews for his new role in “Parenthood." I can’t say I’m surprised. Everybody loves him.

And "Saturday Night Live’s" Jason Sudeikis is here for the very first time. He did a great job playing Mitt Romney during the election.

I’m also gonna get to play some fun games with two really fun people. Jane Lynch is here for a round of Pictionary like you’ve never seen, and I’ve always wanted to be on "The Price is Right," so this week, Drew Carey is gonna make it happen!

I should get going. Mama gets grumpy if I don’t take my turn quickly on Words with Friends. I didn’t even get a chance to tell you that Christina Applegate, Ellen Pompeo, Kevin Pollak and R&B sensation Miguel will be here! Great, now you’ll never know.

It all starts tomorrow! I better change outta my stretchy pants.
