Ellen had her adorable friend Ellie Kemper fill in for her while she was out with the flu, and Ellie ran with the opportunity.

Why, if I was one yr younger (am 62) I'd say I'm in love with Ellie but my wife wont let me. You said because the audience is missing Ellen they all get to attend a 12 days show. I miss Ellen so being I'm the first to mention it, my wife and I would like tickets to one of the 12 days!!!

Get better Ellen. Our grandson has had that bug for 3 weeks. Hopefully yours will only be the weekend or less.

So sorry to hear that Ellen is ill. She has been down before,but still managed to somehow be on the show, So she must be feeling REALLY down, but I've heard that this flu bug is a real whooper. Get well soon, Lady. We miss you. But,you chose a fantastic substitute to fill in for you today. Ellie totally rocked it and kept us all smiling. Where does she get all of that energy.Love and miss you..get well soon!
