Latest estimates suggest there could be between 361 and nearly 38,000 different intelligent civilisations out there, depending on whose model of planetary formation and intelligent life development you believe:

Personally, I believe we're too late. They're everywhere.
That's just for our galaxy though, and there are billions of other galaxies out there. So, taking all of the universe into account, or at least all of the part we can see, those numbers become much, much larger.

I believe there is life out there. Probably a lot more than we expect. But, I doubt little greenmen are visiting us and anal probing rednecks.
You know, I don't believe we on Earth are the only humans in the Universe either. It's a blind belief, yes, and a low likelihood, but not outside the realsm of possibility.
