Ellen DeGeneres Talk Show Ends After 19 Years

Ellen Degeneres has ended her talk show after 19 years on air.

“Welcome to our very last show, I walked out here 19 years ago and I said that this is the start of a relationship and today is not the end of a relationship, it’s more of a little break. It’s, ‘You can see other talk shows now’ and I might see other audiences once in a while,” she said.

Ellen faced scandal after she was accused of running a toxic work environment.

“20 years ago when we were trying to sell this show, no one thought that this would work,” she continued. “Not because it was a different kind of show, but because I was different. Very few stations wanted to buy the show and here we are 20 years later celebrating this amazing journey together.”

In July Degeneres released a statement apologizing to her staffers days after it was announced that WarnerMedia had launched an investigation into her show amid allegations of a toxic working environment.

“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,” she wrote.
