NBC and Warner Bros. today announced that The Ellen DeGeneres Show has been renewed through the 2016-2017 season.
According to Warner Bros., the daytime talk show, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, tied Dr. Phil for the highest-rated syndicated talk show among women ages 25 to 54 during the 2012-2013 season. The show airs on NBC-owned stations and a variety of TV stations across the U.S.
“Ellen is quite simply the best,” said Ken Werner, president of NBC Owned Television Stations. “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. We are absolutely thrilled that NBC, Ellen, Warner Bros. and all of our station partners will be continuing our successful relationship for years to come.”
The Ellen Degeneres Show began airing in the fall of 2003. During that time the show has garnered 38 Daytime Emmy Awards and DeGeneres herself has won 13 People’s Choice Awards.
“Ellen is having its best season ever during the tenth anniversary of the show,” said Hilary Estey McLoughlin, president of Telepictures Productions, which produces syndicated television for Warner Bros. “It is a testament to Ellen’s brilliance as a talent and our extraordinary production team. We are so proud of the show and grateful for all the support and partnership of NBC and all of our stations. We look forward to collaborating with them to build Ellen to even greater success in the years ahead.”
