NBC Axes Ellen DeGeneres’s “Game of Games,” Removing Her From TV Completely After This Spring
When “The Ellen Show” wraps production in May after 19 years, that will be it. No Ellen DeGeneres anywhere on TV.
Today NBC canceled Ellen’s “Game of Games” show after 4 seasons.
Most of Ellen’s producers from the talk show worked on the game show as well. Some of those producers are gone since the wrenching scandal in 2019 and 2020 in which DeGeneres’s staff’s treatment of each other and guests was revealed to be “toxic.”
Since the scandal, “Game of Games Show” dropped significantly in the ratings. In its final season in syndication, “The Ellen Show” is averaging 900,000 viewers per week.
