Degeneres mentioned that she is ready for a change after hosting 180 shows per year. “When you’re a creative person, you need to be challenged all the time – and as good as this show is, and as entertaining as it is, it’s no longer a challenge,” DeGeneres told THR.
Degeneres had previously expressed interest in leaving the show, but eventually opted to remain for a few more seasons. As recently as late last month, Warner Bros. Unscripted TV President Mike Darnell was urging Degeneres to keep on with it, but she is ready to move away.
“Although all good things must come to an end, you always have hope that genuinely great things will never come to an end,” Darnell said. He called her show “an absolute sensation,” describing it as “the premiere destination for both superstars and extraordinary heartfelt human-interest stories” on television for nearly two decades.
The series is “an iconic American TV program,” according to NBCUniversal Local president Valari Staab, whose stations broadcast it. Degeneres is “a trailblazer and a one-of-a-kind talent,” according to NBCUniversal Local president Valari Staab, whose stations broadcast it.
Despite its lighthearted tone, the show did not go without controversy. Last year, Degeneres was chastised for claims that the talk show’s set was a toxic environment.
According to The Daily Wire, in July 2020, one current employee and ten former employees of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” came forward with allegations that the show’s behind-the-scenes atmosphere was far from the show’s slogan, “Be Kind.”
