Ellen DeGeneres is "Flattered" by "Mellen" Sketch on SNL

”Jason, when you’re done with ‘Ted Lasso,’ we should do this show,“ the host says

“I would actually watch that show,” DeGeneres said. “That’s a show I would watch. You know, we should do that. After we finish this season, we should do a show like that. I loved it. I’m flattered by that.”

DeGeneres also noted that it was “SNL” vet Kate McKinnon who really started the “I’m Ellen” catchphrase that Sudeikis borrowed, though DeGeneres herself has no idea why it became a thing. The host later doubled down on the idea that “Mellen” should actually become a show, calling out Sudeikis directly.

“Jason, when you’re done with ‘Ted Lasso,’ we should do this show,” she added. “And if you’re a studio executive, you know what they say, when you have an Ellen, make Mellen.”
