In some surprising TV news today, Ellen DeGeneres has announced that the upcoming 19th season of her daytime talk show will be its last.
In a statement, Ellen said, “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.”
Ellen, of course, and her show, were the subject of an internal investigation following reports of a toxic workplace environment. Ellen addressed the issue on the season premiere of her show.
The news may not come as much of a surprise to everyone, as ratings have fallen substantially this season following the fallout of those allegations.
