Ellen DeGeneres Announces End of Talk Show: 'It's Not a Challenge Anymore'

.....Ellen DeGeneres announced Wednesday that her eponymous daytime talk show will end with its upcoming 19th season.

“When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged — and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore,” DeGeneres told our sister pub The Hollywood Reporter. The final episode is slated to air in Spring 2022.

The news comes after a tumultuous year for DeGeneres and her talk show, the latter of which was mired in a behind-the-scenes controversy involving widespread accusations of a toxic workplace. Last fall, DeGeneres acknowledged the scandal in the show’s Season 18 premiere.

“I learned that things happened here that never should have happened. I take that very seriously, and I want to say I am so sorry to the people that were affected,” DeGeneres began, echoing a previous letter she sent to her crew after the allegations surfaced. “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”

The allegations from current and former Ellen employees, detailed in multiple Buzzfeed reports — including one that dropped late Thursday, after Lassner’s cancellation denial — range from racist comments from senior producers, to staffers being fired for taking time off to attend family funerals, to rampant sexual misconduct and harassment in the workplace. DeGeneres wasn’t directly implicated in the accusations, but as one former employee put it: “If she wants to have her own show and have her name on the show title, she needs to be more involved to see what’s going on.”



no more.....Ellen......?!

Retooled twice in one year to deal with alleged abuses by the host and various executives and by all accounts the abuses continued unabated.

Also, people seem to be catching on the the fact that she's not funny/entertaining.

I dont watch it, but know peeps that do.

Sounds like a bummer -- she seemed to do some good things for normal peeps and a had a very large, very dedicated following which was part of that movement, and the show. Like losing Lance Armstrong from his cancer charity, sails lost wind... and it hurts way more than just one person.

She is very funny when hosting award shows, and walking in the audience.

I never would find time to watch or Tivo a daytime talk show.

She is fine..

Right. I would posit that she's quitting precisely because it's become too challenging.



It is what it is.

They say you can’t throw a rock in Hollywood and not hit someone that’s been screwed over by Ellen.

I’m sure she can dry her tears with thousand dollar bills.

hear hear and boo hoo hoo.
e makes $75M/yr that she dries her tears with.

did the show once in nyc a decade ago. to see the level of crew paranoia was enough for me. like an overtime NHL hockey puck.

as much as I have friends that make a living from that and other talk shows, other than the late nites, I hope they all go away.
bad info for the donut and bon bon sect.

daytime talk is nothing but misery for almost all involved, especially the prompter ops. glad audio is heard and not seen.

Agreed.

Her speech pretty much reeks of 'I am outta here!'

I had no idea that she was such a pain to work for.

People talk as though it was all over MSNBC or Hollywood Reporter for ages.

I've always found her funny and very quick witted and Ellen entertaining, but I never get to watch it much.

Her Game of Games is a lot of fun, too.

But the show was getting a little long in the tooth, so it's just as well she's bailing, even if Degeneres is disingenuous about leaving.

Then, nobody is going to say 'Hey, I'm a jerk and brought this on myself, so I'm out, sorry'.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
