Season 11 starts tomorrow, and this is gonna be our biggest premiere show yet! We’ve got new segments, exciting guests, and a surprise for two principals that you have to see to believe.
A good friend of mine, Leah Remini, was one of the biggest stories of the summer when she left Scientology. She’s here tomorrow to tell me about what happened, why she left, and what the reaction has been. It’s her first appearance anywhere since the story broke. You don’t want to miss that.
I’m also kicking things off with a giant surprise for my audience. Seriously, it’s huge... 50 inches to be exact, and it’s going to make watching my show a whole lot more fun. But why should my audience have all the fun? You have the chance to win one, too! Enter here.
That’s not the only thing that’s giant about season 11 -- we’ve got some of the biggest stars in the world! Celine Dion is here! And if you’re a fan of her finger puppet work, wait until you hear her sing.
Simon Cowell made headlines over the summer with the announcement that he’s going to be a father! He’s here, and I have so many questions for him. This could be the year I find out where babies come from.
Speaking of headlines, Diana Nyad made a few of her own when she became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage. She gets here on Tuesday, and boy are her arms tired! Really, they must be exhausted.
From “Glee," Amber Riley is here to tell me about how she’s strapping on her dancing shoes! She’s joined the cast of “Dancing with the Stars," and boy are her arms tired. Again, they really are tired. That show is a lot of hard work.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. I’ve also got Ray Romano, Andy Samberg, Jennifer Nettles, and some huge surprises that you just have to see to believe.
I’m going to move Earth, Wind and Fire for this 11th Season. I’m not kidding. I moved Earth Wind and Fire. They’re going to be my house band. It all starts Monday!
