Ellen DeGeneres announced that she is shutting down her show
“When you are a creative person, you always need a challenge. I wanted to finish the show after the 16th season. It was supposed to be my last season, but they wanted me to sign a contract for another 4 years. I said I would sign in just 1 year. They didn’t accept us for only one year, so we made a compromise for 3 years. I knew this was going to be my last season.”, said Ellen DeGeneres.

The 19th season of the television talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show will be the last
The television talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show is one of the most popular in the United States and one of the most famous in the world. It is known that there were many major disagreements in the team working on this project. Ten months ago, former public employees said that the show was a toxic place to work. This prompted an internal investigation. In September, the host Ellen DeGeneres apologized, but the show’s ratings showed that it had lost more than a million viewers.
“Things happened that should not have happened and I must say publicly that I am very sorry for the people who were affected. The truth is that I am the person you see on TV. But, me and many other things. Sometimes I get sad. I’m angry. I’m nervous. Frustrated. I’m getting impatient. But I was devastated that I had to watch everything that I had advocated being attacked.”, said Ellen then.
The television talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show started in 2003 and will end in 2022 after the release of the 19th season.
