Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution and NBC announced “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has been renewed through 2017. Some 189 television stations, including the 10 NBC O&Os, have committed to airing it. In its 10th season, DeGeneres’ show has scored some of its best ratings this season. Valari Staab, president of the NBC O&O TV stations, said the show as the “crown jewel” of NBC’s daytime lineup.
“Ellen is quite simply the best,” said Ken Werner, president of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. “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.”
