Thanksgiving is just around the corner! It's one of my favorite holidays, and not just for the great food and time with family, but because it's a time to give thanks. In fact, it should really be called Givethanksing. That's much clearer.

I have a lot to be thankful for, and I'm particularly thankful that I get to see some of my favorite people this week. Lady Gaga is here! She's one of the biggest pop stars on Earth, and she made her talk show debut right here on my stage 5 years ago. Back then I believe she was only Baroness Gaga.

This week, my show's gonna be a little bit country. I've got the Entertainer of the Year and one of People magazine's sexiest men alive, Luke Bryan! 

The beautiful Hayden Panettiere is here to tell me about her hit show that’s all about country music, "Nashville.” I'm not sure where it takes place, but I think it's somewhere in the South.

The top-selling artist in country music history, Garth Brooks is here! Okay, maybe my show isn't gonna be a little bit country. It's gonna be a lot of awesome country.

It's also gonna be a little bit pop and hip-hop. Two of my favorite performers, Jason Mraz and Travie McCoy are swinging by to perform their new hit. That's gonna be fun.

I'm also talking to one of my favorite sloth-lovers, Kristen Bell! Kristen's not only hilarious and adorable, she also has an amazing voice. She's starring in Disney's new movie musical "Frozen," and I can't wait for her to tell me all about it. 

Plus, I've got special guest DJs, 2 Chainz, tWitch, and who knows who else might drop by?!

Have a great rest of your weekend, and Happy Givethanksing!

I too believe it should be givingthanks as I am very grateful my nephew didn't dye yesterday as there was a heat combustion and when my nephew opened the door from the cold outside to the heat from inside it blue the house and burned my nephew he has second and 3rd degree burns from head to toe but he is going to live so I am thankful for that thank god he dropped the tv and covered his face so he will still look like himself but will remain in anarbor hospital for months to come as he has to under go a lot of skin graph surgery so not all of us will be together on thanksgiving in person but in our hearts we r!!! god gives us a test and from this I learned there is nothing more important than family. so this year I am giving thanks to to god

Ellen you remind me of my daughters, they are also lesbians and I never turned my back on them, I fought when anyone made a ugly remark about them. One of them serves our country for 14 years, and the oh her served for 7 years. I also have a daughter that is great she is married and has 2 kids. I really stumbled raising them when they was litt
Le , but I married a great man we have a son . I've had MS for the last 20 years and can' work, I wish that I could help my family but we probably won' be able too have a good Christmas ...we had yo move in with my elder parents.i thank you for just reading this.

Hi Ellen,
My mother and I watch your show each and every day and you bring us so much joy and laughter. You're always funny and ever so giving. If we could, we would most certainly be there for the 12 days of Christmas Give Aways, or for that fact, any time of the year. We live in Texas and mother's health and my work leaves us pretty much out of luck. We would like to send you Blessings for a Very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. Thanks for all you do for everyone and thanks for entertaining us. We love you and you have become a very close and personal friend (although we've never actually met). Keep on giving of yourself unconditionally the way you always do, and we'll keep on watching your shows.

Sincerely & lovingly,
Kay Ellen Prince & Joyce Hamrick Wagner

I have watched you on HBO years ago with your stand up comedy, and I have watched your show every day since it started.
You are such a wonderful giving person. When ever you hear of a person in a crisis you step up to help. You are a great lady. Keep up the good work!

I love you ellen and I don't miss none of your shows. I wish I could be there having a great time with your audience but I can't. Can't afford the plane tickets. On a disability income. Too much medical bills that takes a toll on me. I have breast cancer and still going to my chemo weekly. Lots my hair and always feel weak and tired. Hope at least I can win some of those wonderful prizes that you are giving away. I pray to the lord above everyday to please give me that opportunity to win something. Ellen please please can you help me. That would be the best day yet. Love you Ellen hope to hear from you soon. God bless. Have a wonderful holiday with your family.
