Social media didn’t exist. Gay marriage was not legal. We have seen the world change, sometimes for the better, sometimes not. But whatever was going on, my goal was always for the show to be a place where we could all come together and laugh for an hour. Being invited into your lives has been the greatest privilege of my life and has brought me incredible joy. Thank you. Thank you. And thanks. Thank you”.

Because Ellen DeGeneres said stop

The reason for the farewell is in these words from Ellen herself. «If you are a creative person, you must feel constantly challenged. While the show is great and fun, it no longer poses a challenge to me.” She who in 19 years of honorable service (first at NBC, then for Warner Bros) garnered 171 nominations at the Daytime Emmy Awards (TV’s Oscars).

In 19 years Ellen has registered more than 3300 episodes and interviewed about 2500 personalities, protagonists in any field. The secret of so much success? Coming from her, he sounds like this: «We had a perfect combination of factors. Like few others, we had interesting guests and conversations. Some people were very popular celebrities. Others were spiritual guides. We have helped people in need and others who were doing extraordinary things. And we introduced music. Our show was really a combination of everything. It would have worked at night, but I’m happy it worked during the day. Proof that television viewers are much more complex and mature beings than one might think. Her motto / tagline / subscription service? «Be Kind», be kind… In truth, not so «clean» anymore…

Employee Allegations: Ellen isn’t as nice as she seems

There have also been controversies in recent years. The most recent (perhaps one of the reasons for the farewell…) is that of the summer of 2020. When Ellen DeGeneres was accused of not having stopped and supervised a long series of abuses to which his collaborators were subjected. «It has created a toxic environmentwas the denunciation. She was accused of racism, intimidation, cruelty of various kinds. Like the employee fired after returning to work, after hospitalization in a psychiatric nursing home… You had replied with a letter published in theHollywood Reporters: «Since the beginning I have always wanted theEllen DeGeneres Show was a place of happiness, where no one would ever yell and everyone would be treated with respect. Obviously that’s not the case anymore. Something has changed and I’m sorry. Everyone who knows me knows that what happened is the opposite of what I believe. And that I was hoping was our show.”

The curtain falls on the show and on an era, the US commentators are convinced. Ellen DeGeneres, who in the 1997 he made «the revolution» by announcing his homosexuality, was the symbol of a liberal, progressive and kind America. Today more and more in crisis.
