Ellen DeGeneres may be a hilarious host for daytime TV and the Oscars — but late night? Maybe not so much.
Since David Letterman announced that he’s retiring in 2015, speculation has swirled about who might replace him on the Late Show — and Ellen’s name has always been near the top of the list. So in Thursday’s episode of Ellen, DeGeneres addresses the rumors by giving us a taste of what her late night monologues might be like. (She also kind of shut down the idea that she might take over for Dave: “I am flattered, but I really love doing my daytime show,” DeGeneres said, “But I feel like you don’t really know if you’re good until you try it.”)
