Home TV Ellen DeGeneres talk show has lost over 1 million viewers in the 18…

Ellen DeGeneres once highly vaunted TV talk shows in the ratings free fall.

Last week, “Ellen”, only 1.2 million viewers. In February, for the fourth or fifth month in a row, this number was 1.9 million. In December 2018, “Ellen” has increased to 2.3 million.

There are terrible reports that it will be cancelled. But it is not correct. “Ellen” is set to return after labor Day from the new season. But this may be the last.

DeGeneres tried to leave the show, or at least make noise about it last year. In May 2019. “Ellen” was extended for another three seasons. The expansion of “Ellen” and then in the 16th season, will continue to be a popular syndicated talk show on TV until 2022.

But with the new one from Kelly Clarkson and hall lenses hitting safely and winning awards, “Ellen,” probably to wrap up in June next year. The party is over.

In the spirit of the movement #of Metoo, the people around DeGeneres started to turn against her this winter. There were reports, unconfirmed, her arrogance gone wild: the fact that she treated staff and guests became a meme. Then COVID-19 came, and suddenly DeGeneres broadcast from his house, not from the Studio. It was a very bad look. Dancing and singing and artificial fun was not. The audience could see him.

But one thing the audience could see for sure was the producer Andy Lassner standing outside looking in the window of the mansion, Ellen, when she “quarantine”.Lassner looked sad dog that was thrown out on the street and are unable to attract the attention of its owner. She was miserable. What was DeGeneres thinking? But perhaps, she thought, I just want to stop this show. And now her prayers would be answered.

To quote Billy Joel, Ellen will soon say goodbye to Hollywood. It is rich beyond belief, so it’s not a problem. She can flip houses– her calling– and, perhaps, to make the show doing that on TLC.
