Ellen is an American television sitcom that aired on the ABC network from March 29, 1994 to July 22, 1998, consisting of 109 episodes. The title role of Ellen Morgan, played by stand-up comedian Ellen DeGeneres, was a neurotic bookstore owner in her thirties.The series centered on Ellen's dealing with her quirky friends, her family and the problems of daily life. The series is notable for being the first one in which the main character came out as gay, which DeGeneres' character did in the 1997 episode "Puppy Episode". This event received a great deal of media exposure, ignited controversy, and prompted ABC to place a parental advisory at the beginning of each episode.The series' theme song, "So Called Friend" is by Scottish band Texas. A running gag was that each episode had a distinct opening credits sequence, resulting from Ellen's ongoing search for the perfect opening credits.Ellen featuring Joely Fisher and Jeremy Piven has one or more episodes streaming with subscription on Hulu, available for purchase on iTunes, available for purchase on Google Play, and 4 others. It's a comedy and LGBTQ show with 111 episodes over 5 seasons. Ellen is no longer running and has no plans to air new episodes or seasons. It has an average IMDb audience rating of 6.1 (4,774 votes).
