Ellen DeGeneres announces end of talk show

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has announced that she is ending her show in 2022. Her show is in its 18th Season and will wrap up after the 19th season.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, DeGeneres said she needed something to challenge her.

“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,”
This comes just months after she was diagnosed with covid-19 in December last year.

At the time, she spoke about how some of her colleagues treated her while she was infected with the virus., “I was getting ready to tape the show that you were going to be here for, and I was in hair and makeup, getting my face powdered and my extensions put in and then my assistant, Craig, walks in and says, ‘You’ve tested positive for COVID. And then everyone around me ran away. It’s funny, people just really get scared. Some have not come back since.”

Adding;

“I had to quarantine, and Portia made me sleep in a different room on a different bed because she wanted the race car bed all to herself,”

Early this year,there were accusations by employees that the show is a toxic working environment.

In a statement, the daytime TV show host said;

“On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ would be a place of happiness — no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect. Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case and for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.”
