“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has ended

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has ended. The Ellen Show debuted in 2003, breaking ground as one of the first daytime talk shows to feature an openly gay host, reaching millions of viewers in their homes every day and normalizing LGBTQ representation.

Now an A-list celebrity, Ellen started off as a stand-up comedian.

Her trademark “be kind to one another” message during every show, came to dominate the daytime TV genre. However, her legacy was cracked as  cringey and out-of-touch moments did not adapt with the wave of what is acceptable.

“The Ellen Degeneres show” has ended but Ellen’s kind reputation really began to dim March 2020, when comedian Kevin Porter posted a viral tweet asking people for “the most insane stories you’ve heard about Ellen being mean” in exchange for him donating money to the LA Regional Food Bank. The response was overwhelming.

Allegations of a toxic workplace culture was exaggerated in July 2020, when BuzzFeed News published a series of investigations of the workplace environment of the Emmy-winning show. Dozens of former employees who spoke to Buzzfeed, said they endured racist comments from managers, were fired for taking time off for family emergencies, and worked in a culture of fear and intimidation.

Despite the allegations, the show continued with declined ratings but is now ending on its 19th season.

Leading up to the finale, guests like Oprah Winfrey, Bruno Mars, Khloé Kardashian and more have come to say goodbye. The final goodbye episode, will feature Ellen’s first guest on the show, Jennifer Aniston, on May 26th.

She then shared one last dance with her DJ, Stephen Boss aka tWitch, before the pair took a seat onstage. Ellen’s first final guests included longtime pal Jennifer AnistonBillie Eilish and Pink.

Ellen closed out the show by thanking her staff, notably executive producers Mary Connelly and Andy Lassner, as well as her longtime chief of staff, Craig Peralta, before addressing her devoted audience.
