Ellen put to rest rumors that she might quit her daytime talk show when her contract is up next year by announcing a new three-year deal on the Wednesday edition of her talk show, which taped Tuesday afternoon. Ellen described her show as being like a relationship. “We’ve been through the good, the bad, the Fifty Shades of Grey phase," she said. "It’s been a lot of fun and 16 years is a pretty good run. Sometimes in a relationship, you need to take a break. But I don’t. You’re stuck with me. I just signed for three more years.” Variety reports under her new deal, Ellen "now has a large ownership stake in the show, having been granted more points with every contract." “Ellen is, quite simply, a force of nature,” said Peter Roth, president and chief content officer for Warner Bros. Television Group. “Her energy, intelligence, kindness and creativity know no bounds. Whether it’s her instant connection to her guests on her flagship talk show, her warm and funny hosting on Game of Games, or the infectious enthusiasm she shares in producing everything from Little Big Shots to the animated antics of Green Eggs and Ham, it’s an honor to work alongside her. We’re thrilled to continue this fun and friendly journey with her.” ALSO: Ellen executive producers launch an Ellen on the Go video podcast.
