ELLEN SHOW CANCELED... OH WAIT - NEVER MIND

"WAIT . . . IT'S THE GOVERNOR!"

Talk about a last-minute reprieve! CBS canceled the Ellen DeGeneres show -- then UN-canceled it JUST 48 hours later. The weird cliff-hanger began hours before Ellen emceed the Emmys, when network execs told producers, It's OVER! But when the suits heard Ellen plug her show repeatedly during the awards broadcast -- AND saw her get a standing ovation -- their icy little hearts melted and the cancelation was canceled.
