Ellen DeGeneres, "Ellen"
Their Standup: Ellen's bemused, dry standup made her both relatable and truly offbeat. Her conversations with God were a scream.
Why Their Show Worked: "Ellen" is probably the greatest '90s sitcom that you never hear anyone talk about anymore. Ellen DeGeneres was at one point an actress, ladies and gentleman, and a very sympathetic hub of a diverse cast of characters. The best episode is when Emma Thompson guest-stars to announce that she is a lesbian and, more importantly, a phony Brit who hails from Ohio.
