The “Ellen Degeneres Show” posted a compilation of all of its funniest moments with country stars. The hilarious montage includes some of the biggest names in country music including Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood, and Brad Paisley.
It also includes some fairly notable events from the history of the show. That includes the famous scare moments, her performing with Swift, and Pickler and Bryan arguing over the differences in couscous and arugula.
Degeneres has been fighting to win back viewers following her recent scandal. She was accused of having a toxic work environment earlier this year. Since then, her ratings have plummeted.
According to Nielsen, ratings are down 38 percent compared to last year, the Daily Mail reported. Nielsen Media Research reports the show averaged a 1.2 rating for its Season 18 premiere week, a 29 percent drop compared to last year’s premiere week.
Viewership for most daytime talk shows is down, but DeGeneres’ show has the sharpest drop, according to USA Today. DeGeneres’ game show “Ellen’s Game of Games” also dropped in ratings by almost 40 percent.
Garth Brooks hosts ‘Ellen’ Episode to promote ‘Fun’
Garth Brooks, whose new album “Fun” will be released on Nov. 20, hosted the Friday episode of “Ellen.”
During the show, which was part of “Ellen’s Month of Giving Thanks,” the country megastar helped give back to a first responder family. He spoke with Glendale firefighter Steve Pettit and his wife Misty. They discussed the couple’s 5-month-old baby and Steve’s work with the fire department during the California wildfires and pandemic.
And speaking toward her comedic work with country stars, she and Brooks teamed up during his episode to release a new video for “The Thunder Rolls.” In the segment, Brooks says he wanted to debut the video with Degeneres that “didn’t quite work out.”
“People don’t know this but Ellen and I actually worked together on an old album of mine,” he says. “She was in a music video but it didn’t quite work out.”
The audience loved the video, which featured Degeneres dancing in the barn from the iconic music video then falling out of it.
