'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' becomes first US daily talk show in China

BEIJING, China - Ellen DeGeneres's talk show is getting a new audience — viewers in China.

The lighthearted, celebrity-focused show is now available in China on video site Sohu, with Chinese subtitles and within 48 hours of its original U.S. broadcast.

It is the first U.S. daily talk show to be carried in China, according to a statement Tuesday by distributor Warner Brothers and Sohu.com Inc.

Sohu Video, like other Chinese online video sites, licenses many hit American TV shows. Earlier this month it unveiled the late-night U.S. comedy sketch show "Saturday Night Live" as an addition to its lineup.

DeGeneres' show is in its eleventh season and has won many U.S. awards.

Sohu CEO Charles Zhang said it believes "it could also have strong appeal and relevance with the Chinese audience."
