The Ellen DeGeneres Show came to the end of its 19-year run in May, nearly two years after DeGeneres’ reputation was tarnished by reports in BuzzFeed where numerous current and former employees described a hostile work environment that included allegations bullying, racism, sexual misconduct and harassment.

Several major producers were fired from the show, and DeGeneres apologized when her show returned for its 18th season in September 2020. However, in May 2021, DeGeneres revealed plans to end her daytime run. « When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged – and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it just isn’t a challenge anymore. »
