Ellen DeGeneres Launches New YouTube Series 'Ellen Show Me More'
If you can't get enough of Ellen DeGeneres and her eponymous daytime talk show, there's soon to be a solution for that. DeGeneres' new YouTube series, Ellen's Show Me More Show, will allow viewers to catch behind-the-scenes glimpses of the host and comedian, not to mention her outlandish antics.
As part of a new initiative to expand content on the channel, TechCrunch reports that YouTube will be broadcasting the twice weekly program. Show Me More Show will offer fans exclusive access to celebrity guests as well as showcase some of DeGeneres' favorite moments on the set of her wildly popular The Ellen Show.
The host first announced the series back in May 2017, when she joked about the fun that will take place on her new platform:
"I love this new show because not only can you see brand-new, hilarious stuff, but it also gives me extra time to spend with celebrities. So you’ll learn things you didn’t know. Like did you know that Oprah’s real name is Sally? See? It’s gonna be really interesting.”
She also gushed about the upcoming project via Twitter, telling fans that it's "gonna be youtuberific." Her overall enthusiasm to share more of her life with her audience is a sign of things to come — like more backstage Dance Dares, perhaps?
DeGeneres' current YouTube channel already boasts over 20 million subscribers and 9.6 billion views. Since The Ellen DeGeneres Show's debut in 2003, the series has dominated the daytime talk show industry, winning the Daytime Emmy Award for best talk show 10 times.
That's probably helped by the fact that many of the clips and moments from DeGeneres' show have garnered viral status. Remember when Nicki Minaj sung “Super Bass” with Sophia Grace? Or the time when DeGeneres gave out cash for kindness to a stranger who was tricked into helping a "pregnant" woman?
The Ellen Show has been in production for nearly 14 years, but getting a whole new perspective on it through this YouTube series will make it fresh for longtime viewers.
