Ellen: Tony Okungbowa’s Girlfriend
Ellen began her January 10 2013 show by talking about how shocked she was to learn that her DJ, Tony, had a girlfriend. He has been dating a woman since May of last year. She rolled a clip from November where she point-blank asked him about who he was spending the holidays with and he said, no one. She said she was very offended, but now they could start a new thing, “Tony Marriage Watch 2013.”
Ellen: Patrick Dempsey Tully’s Coffee
Actor Patrick Dempsey bought a chain of cofffee shops called Tully’s Coffee. Ellen said that the chain was going out of business and Patrick Dempsey saved 500 jobs.
She rolled a clip of a supposed commercial for Tully’s Coffee, to make it a little more sexy.
The customers were taking their glasses off and letting their hair down, and the baristas were shirtless, muscular men. It finished with the tag line, “Tully’s Coffee: Where Dr. McDreamy Serves ‘Em Up Extra Steamy.”
Ellen: Cute Animal Videos
Ellen thought she should show her favorite cute animal videos of 2012. These included a bird dancing behind a woman who was seated at a picnic table, a bear scratching his back on a tree, which looked like he was dancing, a cat hidden in a drawer and a cat pushing another cat off a ladder.
Ellen: Favorite Web Videos
Ellen then showed several video clips from newscasters who messed up. These included a woman staring into space before saying, “I so pale,” in a weird fake southern accent before her co-anchor said, “We’re live.” Then she moved onto the news.
There was also a video where a man giving an interview’s chair broke.
