It’s official! The Ellen Show now can be seen by one billion people in China. News of the first American talk show to hit the airwaves was announced by Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday’s show and the star couldn't be happier to share the news with her fans. According to the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday, this is the first time a syndicated talk show has been distributed in China. After welcoming the new viewers and reminding them she has a website to buy products, Ellen DeGeneres shared how it would be different than other places who watched the show.
‘We became the first American talk show,” said Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen Show. “It’s basically the same show but with subtitles.”
Chinese viewers can see all of Ellen’s guests, check out her funny dance routines and even catch a little bit of American culture. And with the subtitles, they can even follow along if they don’t speak English (unless their eyes are closed.)
With Ellen DeGeneres being seen China in the star is looking at world talk show host domination as no talk show hosts currently on TV even come close. Of course for fans that means an hour of great programming with some of the biggest Hollywood stars in attendance.
Take a look at Ellen DeGeneres announcement about being seen in China in the video. Seems extremely excited to have viewers in Asia.
