Ellen DeGenere's daytime talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, will be the first U.S. program of its kind to air in China.

“Ni hao! Ni hao. Ni hao, y'all!” DeGeneres greeted her audience on Tuesday. “It's basically the same show, but it will have subtitles and be called The Happy Lady Dance Hour.”

Sohu Video will broadcast the show in China, Warner Bros., which distributes the show in the United States, said in announcing the agreement.

“Ellen has clearly differentiated herself and her talk show from so many of the controversial conflict-oriented talk shows,” said Jeffrey Schlesinger, president of Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution. “She has an unmatched and unique brand of family-friendly humor and love of pop culture that appeals to audiences of all ages in a very fun one-hour of programming.”

The 55-year-old DeGeneres came out gay in 1997. She married actress Portia de Rossi in California in 2008.
