Ellen DeGeneres to End Talk Show: “It’s Just Not A Challenge Anymore” (Exclusive) https://t.co/d6XXpph67G

BuzzFeed spoke with an employee last winter before Christmas, who remarked on what the show might be facing as far as its fortunes.
“This feels like our make-it-or-break-it moment. This will be our biggest report card. If we pick up sponsors by the new year, then we’re cooking, we’ll be fine, and we’ll sell kindness in a bottle. But if we fail that report card, who knows.”
It certainly appears that they now know. By the looks of things, it would appear that the reality is the complete opposite of what Ellen is stating as the reason to leave. Claiming the show is no longer a challenge seems in conflict with what has been happening — it looks as if the challenge is far too great to overcome.
Ellen DeGeneres is giving an on camera interview to Oprah Winfrey about the controversial end of her chat show.
At least we know Ellen won’t have to face any difficult questions!
