Critic Reviews for Ellen Season 5

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

The problem with Ellen has always been that DeGeneres is better than the show, and that's still true. If only it were more clever and less narrow.

It's often said that you can't be funny if you're also trying to promote a social or political agenda... But Ellen, now in its fifth season, keeps getting funnier.

What a sorry ending.
