The Ellen Degeneres Show

There's a new nice lesbian in daytime talk (and given Rosie's courtroom showing this fall, not a moment too soon). DeGeneres' dry humor and affable-but-not-obsequious style are perfect for her morning chat slot, as is her naturally chummy casualness: You half expect her to plop down on the couch next to you, put her feet up and grab the remote. Welcome, and stay a while. (Syndicated)
