Ellen DeGeneres is used to making dreams come true for other people on her eponymous daytime TV show. However, the comedian turned talk show host found herself on the receiving end of someone’s generosity for a change when Ashton Kutcher made a surprise appearance on set. Here’s a look at how the actor ultimately reduced DeGeneres to tears.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show premiered on NBC in the autumn of 2003 and quickly established itself as one of America’s leading chat shows. In fact, in 2017 the series overtook Live with Kelly and Ryan to become the nation’s second most-watched daytime series. And since The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s debut, it has scooped more than 50 Daytime Emmy Awards and over a dozen People’s Choice Awards.
Furthermore, the show has become renowned over the years for making people’s dreams come true. In 2011, for example, it helped to launch the careers of YouTube youngsters Sophia Grace and Rosie after the pair performed in front of millions of viewers. Then, seven years later, DeGeneres did the same for yodelling sensation Mason Ramsey; she also arranged for him to achieve his ambition of playing the Grand Ole Opry concert.
