Although we now know that Stephen Colbert will be replacing David Letterman, up until today Ellen DeGeneres had been coming up on various lists of possible replacements for Dave, and as a result, Ellen took to her day show to dispel those rumors!
While she said she's happy to be on day time (and it's now confirmed she won't be taking over Dave's desk), she did give her audience a brief, tongue-in-cheek taste of what it would be like to have her host The Late Show by delivering a monologue in the style of a late night show.
Our favorite gag? Ellen, after having an issue getting out of the curtain, admits that she hasn't "had that much trouble coming out since 1997." BA-DUM-CHA!
Ch-ch-check out her whole monologue (above)!!!
