TBS to air DeGeneres special

'Ellen's Really Big Show' set for HBO festival

TBS has announced that it will broadcast Ellen DeGeneres special “Ellen’s Really Big Show” from the HBO Comedy Festival in Las Vegas in November.

Presentation, which is described as a two-hour variety show, will air on Nov. 18, shortly after the fest ends. Net did not reveal guests but said that special will feature “top talents from the worlds of comedy and music.”

HBO fest will be held Nov. 14-17 at Caesars Palace, with performers such Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock already announced.

It’s one of two events that the pay net throws; the other, a winter event in Aspen, is seeking a new venue for 2008.

“Ellen” special is the first of what will likely be several events broadcast on TBS. Last year TBS aired four events from the festival, including a comedy competition sponsored by MySpace and a revival of the 1980s franchise Comic Relief.
