Pizza for everyone! Funny gal Ellen DeGeneres broke her Nielsen ratings record with Monday's post-Oscars episode of her self-titled talk show.



Monday's live post-Oscars episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show was the highest-rated episode in the series' 11-year history, averaging a 4.8 Household rating/11 share in the overnight markets, a full ratings point higher than the series' previous high 3.8, earned way back in 2004!

The episode was also the highest-rated with W18-49 (2.1/11) and W25-54 (2.7/13). Academy Award winners Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine), Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) and Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave) all stopped by on Monday. The guy who delivered pizza to the A-listers on Oscar night, Edgar Martirosyan, was also present.

Samsung, maker of the Galaxy Note 3 phone Bradley Cooper used to take a group selfie that broke Twitter, agreed to donate $3 million to St. Jude's Children's Hospital, effectively donating $1 for every retweet of the history-making pic.
