After nearly two decades, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres gives her last monologue and shows off her iconic dance moves with Stephen “tWitch” Boss one final time on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” airing Thursday at 3 p.m. on CBS 6.
In a full-circle moment, Jennifer Aniston, the very first guest on the talk show in 2003, returns on Ellen’s final episode. The Emmy Award-winning actress reminisces about her past appearances and pricelessly shares how she dealt with ending the 10-season run of “Friends” by getting a divorce and going into therapy. Jennifer inquiries about Ellen’s future plans, and the actress gives the host a parting gift reminiscent of her first appearance on the show.
Then, Jennifer surprises Ellen with a look back at how the trailblazing host has changed the television landscape, made an indelible mark on society, and impacted countless lives throughout her career.
Later in the show, superstar Billie Eilish, who was one year old when the talk show began, stops by to help celebrate the beloved host. They chat about Billie making her daytime TV debut on the show when she was 16, and the now 20-year-old singer admits how nervous she was meeting Ellen for the first time. The recent Oscar winner also divulges whether she has new music on the way.
Plus, international pop icon P!nk pays an emotional tribute to Ellen, and they chat about her winning an Emmy Award for writing the show’s theme song. The two friends look back at P!nk’s past appearances, and she gives Ellen gifts to use during her newfound free time. P!nk also takes the stage to perform one of Ellen’s favorite songs, “What About Us,” for the very last musical performance on the show.
Ellen closes by sharing her heartfelt gratitude with an emotional farewell and says goodbye to her long-running talk show, ending it the same way the journey began in 2003.
