Ok, but when is she hosting a bottomless brunch? 

Whether it's seated in a comfortable armchair on the set of her popular daytime talk show, or taking the most popular selfie of all time at the Oscars, Ellen DeGeneres knows her way around a hosting gig.

Now, NBC is tapping her to helm a primetime gameshow, featuring versions of the myriad mini-games she already has on her talk show. According to Deadline, NBC has ordered six hour-long episodes of Ellen's Game of Games, where contestants pulled from the audience will compete in favorites like Cut the Cord, Know or Go and The Marshmallow Game.

"I'm so excited to be hosting a huge primtime game show for NBC," DeGeneres said. "We're pulling out all the stops - gigantic sets, hilarious games. It's going to be like a combination of American Ninja Warrior, RuPaul's Drag Race, and a water park. Ok, it's nothing like that, but you should still watch."

Ellen's Game of Games does not have a set premiere date.
