The 53-year-old talk show host is already impressed with Cryer's receptionist skills: "You really do good work. You do the work of two and a half men."

"You don't have to say that every time," he tells her.

"Well, thanks for being here," DeGeneres responds. "I appreciate it."

"I needed the work," Cryer, 45, admits.
