“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’s just not a challenge anymore,” DeGeneres told ハリウッドレポーター.
Per Nielsen’s ratings in March, “エレンの部屋ショー” lost over 1 million viewers over the course of the show’s current 18th season.
その間, デジェネレス, 63, told THR that the decision to end the show didn’t stem from the internal investigation that took place. “It’s not why I’m stopping,” 彼女は言いました. “It almost impacted the show. It was very hurtful to me. というのは, 非常に. But if I was quitting the show because of that, I wouldn’t have come back this season.”
“This is an example that proves audiences crave authenticity in their hosts. If they find out celebrities are fake, the celebrity faces catastrophe,” he reasoned.
Schiffer added that he believes Warner Bros., the studio that produces “Ellen,” might have called the shots. “ワーナーブラザーズ. measures its success is based upon ratings and now it has to deal with the reality of a show that is suffering,” 彼は言った.

Belva Anakwenze, principal of a Los Angeles-based management firm, echoed Schiffer’s sentiment.
