If you watch talk shows that is. I've gotten hooked on ellen this week. I really wanted to see her get george clooney on her show even though it was a rerun.
Myself I don't care for oprah much. I don't care for her subject matter mostly and agreed with the newsweek article about her.
Who do you prefer if you watch them?

I don't watch either show that much. However, I always check Oprah first to see if the topic is interesting. 9 times out of 10, it isn't. So, I end up watching Ellen. I like Ellen too, b/c my kids can watch it with me, it's pretty clean.

They're 2 completely different things for me. Also, where I live they are on at 2 different times of the day (Ellen- am, Oprah- late afternoon). I love Ellen. That show cracks me up. I used to watch Oprah but I probably only catch about 4/ year now. Ellen, I was watching it more during the school year but haven't watched in a few months.
Ellen gets my vote.

I wish I had an opinion on this, but I haven't had daytime control of the TV since dd3 was an infant. Come to think of it, I don't have nighttime control of the TV due to dh. *sigh*

Oprah, Ellen, and Bonnie (FLOVE) are all on at different times in Chicago. In fact Oprah is on at 9am and then again at 11pm. Then later we bet Bonnie in the afternoon, followed by Ellen. I rarely watch any of these, as I work, but since I work at home, I flip around while I eat my lunch. I think Bonnie and Ellen are hysterical. And if you really want to laugh hard, then you have to watch Ellen's sumo wresling outfit races. Just hysterical. These really are different shows, Oprath and Ellen. I usually am interested in Oprah when I'm interested int he topic, while Ellen is fun pretty much anytime.

I vote Ellen all the way, but I don't usually catch either anymore...

I usually switch to Oprah to see if it is interesting. I just never got into ellen. I watched her a long time ago when she did standup. Currently I am into court shows. I watch People's Court every day.

I don't watch either. If the TV is on during the day, I'm usually catching a rerun of something like Andy Griffith or Leave it to Beaver.

These are totally my guilty pleasure! People's Court and Judge Judy. I don't know why! In fact I tivo them so I can watch during the twins' naptime (I don't watch TV when they're awake.) I don't like any of the other judges, only Judy and Marilyn Milian (sp?). I think that would be my dream job, TV judge!
I don't watch Oprah or Ellen. I don't have anything against them (well, maybe the cult of Oprah a little) I just never got into them.

I think I might like Ellen, except she's on during the day here (10 maybe?) when I'm working. Oprah is on at both 4 and 5 (different networks) and I often used to watch as a way to unwind at the end of the day. No time for any of that now as that's either when I'm heading off to pick up DS, or I've got him home and am feeding him dinner.

I was curious too and did a search. I think is the one OP meant:

Oprah, only b/c even during the regular season, it always seems like Ellen is a repeat.
07-09-2009, 10:22 PM
I had to go cold turkey on the court shows. I get so hooked when they say "tomorrow on the show..." and then I feel like I have to watch that one too. People's Court and Judge Judy would be my weaknesses.
I tell you, the best waiting room visit was when they were playing People's Court on the TV. Everyone was there for a scan of some sort and there were long waits involved. The shows kept the whole room in stitches. It was communal entertainment at it's best, outside of a good sporting match. Good equalizer too as we all felt smarter than the people on the shows. :)

I love Ellen and Bonnie.
Ellen reminds me so much of the early Rosie O'Donnel shows...the ones I liked to watch.
I keep hoping that Ellen will bring Gladys back.
And Bonnie...she's just funny.
Now- I can't STAND Martha or Rachel Ray's shows. Martha isn't good with a live studio audience, and Rachel Ray just grates on my nerves.

Martha is such a b**ch! She says snarky things to her guests all the time. I only catch glimpses of her b/c she is on after The View and I forget to turn the tv off, or am doing housework ect.
Ellen is my favorite though! Even DH likes to watch Ellen! She's so funny. That is a show where I would like to be part of the studio audience!
