Ellen DeGeneres is considering to end her talk show. Even though she extended her contract until the summer of 2020, she is debating whether or not to retire after that. She has reported that she has gotten advice from her brother and her wife. She claims that the advice made her even more conflicted, based on a New York Times interview.
“She gets mad when my brother tells me I can’t stop,” DeGeneres said about De Rossi, who is asking her to leave the show. De Rossi believes that she has more creativity and a talk show isn’t the only way she can express her creativity. She believes that the end of the show won’t be a career ending move.
“She has a special personality like no other and daytime TV will not be the same without Ellen. She has made a very big impact being the most well known female, homosexual talk show host,” said Nishat Islam, a student at Thomas Edison High School and a supporter of Ellen.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show started in 2003 and the ratings were very high. The show has 16 seasons and more than 2,700 episodes. Ellen has been very vocal when it came to politics, the LGBTQ community, and many other topics.
“She has a lot going on, such as turning 61, having a Netflix special, and other shows on HGTV, so I believe she does deserve a break from her talk show so she can venture out to do other things and give more time to her other projects,” said Nishat Islam
There is no argument that daytime TV will not be the same without Ellen.
