  • Aren't we glad that Ellen has another TV show on?

  • Because she doesn't work enough, she doesn't work enough.

  • She doesn't have enough jobs.

  • I have seen an episode of "Game of Games"

  • and I have never seen anybody be dropped

  • into that big a vat of macaroni and cheese.

  • Yeah.

  • As you did to somebody.

  • Yes.

  • The logistics of that have got to be insane.

  • Yeah, it's a big set.

  • It's a big-- and this season, this new season is bigger.

  • We had to use the biggest sound stage on this lot

  • in order to get the games in.

  • To spin two people around to the point of nausea--

  • Yep.

  • --And risk physical injury.

  • Right.

  • Anybody-- anybody, like, almost drown in that vat

  • of macaroni and cheese?

  • We pull them out pretty quickly.

  • Do you have lifeguards on standing by with special vests?

  • Well, they're not really lifeguards,

  • but yes, we have people to pull them out, and so--

  • it's not always macaroni and cheese.

  • Sometimes it's pea soup.

  • There's different things we drop them into.

  • Who writes your show, toddlers?

  • Uh-huh.

  • Yes.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Yes.

  • What?

  • You know what would be funny, Mommy?

  • If Mommy fell into--

  • into mashed potatoes.

  • Oh.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • How old is that kid?

  • Well, that's--

  • That's a young kid.

  • That's a young kid.

  • That's actually a really good idea.

  • Just have a roomful of young people

  • and ask them what they want to see on TV and then create it.

  • That's right.

  • What if we had a roomful of sharp forks?

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • And they had to find their way out, blindfolded.

  • Was that coming up any time soon?

  • Actually, no--

  • That might be the Halloween version.

  • No one take that.

  • I'm writing it.

  • I'm writing it.

  • All right, you're writing it down.

  • By the way, you do a good impression of a child.

  • Thank you.

  • You really do.

  • I'm in touch.

  • Your family was in Greece recently.

  • We go to Greece on our holiday vacation.

  • Because Rita's family is from there.

  • Yes, and so therefore, there are no options to go anywhere else.

  • Uh huh.

  • Right.

  • We will go to Greece and that's that.

  • That's all there is to it.

  • It's pretty beautiful.

  • Well, it beats my family who had came

  • from Red Bluff, California.

  • So, it might be a little bit better

  • to go to Greece-- better water.

  • So you're on a nice, fancy yacht,

  • and you decide you're going to jump off the fancy yacht.

  • There's a-- can we see this?

  • I don't know how many takes you did.

  • Oh.

  • How many times did you jump off?

  • Well, this was my birthday.

  • I was just--

  • I wanted to show off the new hat and shirt

  • that I got for my 63rd birthday.

  • But we had-- we were--

  • it took a while.

  • Our production team went off.

  • If you have the--

  • you have an earlier take of this that didn't quite work out.

  • I haven't seen the earlier take.

  • Well, here's what-- we're going, and there I go, right by it.

  • Didn't quite have the same celebratory visual--

  • No.

  • --That we were looking for.

  • No.

  • But it is the same magic technology.

  • There we go.

  • But that was pretty high, but then I

  • saw your son jumped off a cliff.

  • OK, yeah.

  • How high was that because that--

  • I'm no judge of height.

  • I'm going to say it's six miles high.

  • This is him.

  • He marched up-- he swam to shore, climbed up on beach,

  • walked all the way up to the top of this mountain,

  • and he wasn't waiting more than three seconds

  • before he did this.

  • Look at this.

  • I mean, I cannot believe he did this.

  • That was him.

  • 1, 2, 3, 4.

  • That's four seconds of hang time.

  • That's the type of fall that will

  • rip a watch off your wrist.

  • Is he usually a daredevil like that?

  • He-- yeah, he is.

  • Wow.

  • He rides motorcycles, and when he turned 21, he wanted to go--

  • so I said, what would you like for your birthday?

  • He said, (GRUFFLY) I want to go skydiving.

  • So, we--

  • Is that how he talks?

  • We went--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • --After he ponders things.

  • So we went-- we went tandem skydiving.

  • Tandem, so you're attached to somebody

  • who knows what they're doing.

  • You freefall, and as you're free falling,

  • your face goes like this.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • As you go-- because you're traveling

  • at, like, 250 miles an hour.

  • And then she popped the chute and we stopped,

  • and she was doing this thing of swinging us around, steering us

  • around.

  • Oh, wow.

  • And I had had a huge breakfast burrito

  • before the plane went off, and so I truly--

  • I begged her.

  • I'm just-- I was like a rag doll hanging

  • from this harness thing.

  • Please stop.

  • Please, please.

  • Stop, stop.

  • And we landed on this grass strip and all I could do

  • was sit on my rump, and I just had

  • to sit there for about seven minutes

  • waiting for my stomach to calm down, while other people were

  • coming down and landing.

  • Well, I have to say, maybe having a huge breakfast burrito

  • before you're going to jump out of a plane--

  • Bad call.

  • Bad.

  • Bad call.

  • Yes.

  • Had I been with you, I would have said,

  • don't eat the whole thing.

  • It was a damn good burrito though.

  • Oh, I'm sure.

  • I'm sure.

  • It was really good.

  • All right.

  • So, we're going to both be at the Golden Globes this year.

  • You're getting the Lifetime Achievement Award--

  • Cecil B. deMille Award.

  • Cecil deMille Award.

  • You're getting the Carol Burnett Award.

  • Yes, we're both getting--

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • Now--

  • That's exciting that first of all--

  • first of all, I'm just flattered and honored

  • that I'm getting that, but I'm so glad that this year--

  • Well, does this mean you're now going

  • to have a variety show on the air as well?

  • So there'll be this, the game show, and the--

  • And then the fork show.

  • I'm just excited because the fact

  • that you're getting the Cecil B. deMille Award when I'm getting

  • the Carol Burnett Award.

  • It's just going to be--

  • I'm so excited for you because I think that's so cool--

  • Oh, thank you.

  • --I get to be there on that show with you.

  • And likewise.

  • Yes.

  • You've-- you and I have been, essentially,

  • on television since VHS was first invented.

  • That is true.

  • It's literally about the same time.

  • One of the first times that I saw you and got

  • to know you was at something called the American Comedy

  • Awards.

  • Remember that?

  • Yes, it was just for the American comics.

  • Yes, and for some--

  • for some reason, I was there.

  • And it was an award show that was on for a little bit.

  • But this was 1984, 85--

  • Yeah.

  • --Something like that.

  • And you won for-- what did you win?

  • I have no idea.

  • You won-- I think you won for best female club comic.

  • OK.

  • Does that sound about right?

  • Sure.

  • Which means that you--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • --You got to travel around the world and perform

  • at the Chuckle Hut--

  • Yeah.

  • And I was the best--

  • --And Laughs Incorporated.

  • --The best female to do that.

  • That's right.

  • I was the best female at the Chuckle Hut.

  • You were.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Yeah.

  • We're going to talk to Tom more after this.

  • We'll be back.

Aren't we glad that Ellen has another TV show on?
