David Letterman isn't leaving The Late Show until 2015, but the race to find his replacement is already underway. One of the many names in contention is Ellen DeGeneres—but does the daytime talk show host even want the gig? The comedienne addresses the rumors on her eponymous talk show Thursday.
"I am very flattered but I really love doing my daytime show," DeGeneres tells viewers. "And nighttime is very different. There's a lot of political humor, which I don't do. But I feel you don't know if you're good at something until you try it. So I'm gonna see what it would look like if I did do a late night show. So I'm gonna start over. Let's bring out our announcer, [Paul Bartholomew]. Come on out."
Bartholomew reintroduces her: "Live from Burbank California, here's Ellen Deeeeeeeeee-generes!"
