"It means so much to me that everyone showed up."
She had invited Twitter followers in the area to come to the ceremony, joking: "Also, I'd love a ride home. 6270 Hollywood Blvd."
DeGeneres's former American Idol colleague Ryan Seacrest and ABC late night chatshow host Jimmy Kimmel were also present at the induction, posing for photographs with the comedian.
Her award-winning self-titled talkshow will return to US television screens next Monday (September 10) after its usual summer break.
