  • Ellen is the only reason I’m watching the Oscars this year. In fact, I haven’t watched a full telecast since her last stint in 2007.

  • I saw the thumbnail for the article, and I thought it was about HIMYM….it’s VERY reminiscent of Nothing Suits Me Like a Suit! Haha.

  • Was kinda expecting the cast of HIMYM to dance-crash into view and take over with Nothing Suits Me Like a Suit. Maybe NPH will get to host in 2015 and they can make a commercial like that then.
