Ellen DeGeneres: Renewed by NBC Through 2016-2017
She’s the most-loved woman on daytime television and Ellen DeGeneres has job security at least for the next four years.
According to a report, “The Ellen DeGeneres” show received a renewal through the 2016-2017 season from 10 NBC stations and 179 other outlets as well.
Warner Bros Television honcho Ken Werner told press, “Ellen is quite simply the best. Day in and day out she and her team produce a unique and compelling hour of entertainment which is appointment television for legions of women.”
“We are absolutely thrilled that NBC, Ellen, Warner Bros. and all of our station partners will be continuing our successful relationship for years to come."
NBC’s Valari Staab added, “Ellen is the crown jewel of the NBC Owned Television Stations daytime lineup. We are proud and thrilled to extend our relationship with Ellen DeGeneres, all the great people working on her show and our friends at Warner Bros.”
While stars like Jeff Probst, Ricki Lake, and Anderson Cooper can’t seem to hang on, Ellen is definitely on top of her game.
