When she is not getting photo-bombed by Kelly Clarkson and with her beautiful wife Portia de Rossi, Ellen Degeneres is busy dominating daytime talk and she will continue to do so for at least another 4 years.
NBC made the announcement that the daytime queen has re-upped her contract through the 2016-2017 season. 10 NBC stations and 179 outlets decided that Ellen is the way to go.
Warner Bros. Television President Ken Werner stated:
“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."
Valari Staab from NBC also chimed in:
“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.”
Congrats to Ellen and here is to another 4 more years!-DocFB
Diagnosis: The daytime line-up for NBC stays in place at least.
