'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' Is Over

DeGeneres is officially ending her talk show, which suffered plunging viewership after sexual misconduct allegations.

Ellen DeGeneres is ending her daytime talk show, the host announced today in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter. The show’s upcoming season — its 19th — will be its last.

DeGeneres said she came to the decision because the show is no longer a creative challenge. The comedian claimed that allegations of sexual misconduct, racism and a toxic workplace environment, reported on by Buzzfeed and Variety last summer, did not factor into her reasoning. When asked to explain how the allegations did impact her, DeGeneres replied, “It was very hurtful to me.” She then touched on cancel culture, stating that “this culture we’re living is [is one where] no one can make mistakes…I don’t want to generalize because there are some bad people out there and those people shouldn’t work again but, in general, the culture today is one where you can’t learn and grow, which is, as human beings, what we’re here to do.”

After news of employee allegations broke, subsequently creating a media firestorm, The Ellen DeGeneres Show suffered a plunge in viewership. According to a follow-up published by Buzzfeed, the show was losing advertisers and struggling to book A-list celebrities, reports that, if true, likely contributed to DeGeneres’ decision.

Head to the Hollywood Reporter to read its full interview with Ellen DeGeneres.
