The Hollywood Reporter showed that the program staff “Ellen“was informed of the cancellation of the program on Tuesday, May 11th.

DeGeneres claims the show ends because “as fun as it is, it’s no longer a challenge,” though the drop in ratings and reputation of his show after a major scandal last year made the eventual cancellation almost inevitable.

An explosive report from Buzzfeed last July with 10 former employees of the program “EllenThey alleged that DeGeneres was promoting a “toxic” workplace, with allegations of racism, harassment and intimidation against the talk show host.

Still, DeGeneres claims the investigation had nothing to do with his show’s cancellation.

“It honestly destroyed me. I would be lying if I said it wasn’t, “he said The Hollywood Reporter. “It almost shocked the show. It was very painful for me. I mean a lot. But if he’d left the show for that, he wouldn’t have returned this season. “

The talk show, which has aired since 2003, recorded a heartbreaking loss of more than a million viewers last season after DeGeneres publicly apologized for the allegations against him.

“If I never do anything else I will be very proud of what this program represents and continues to represent and what we have achieved,” she said.

DeGeneres will attend an official interview with Oprah Winfrey in “Ellen“Thursday May 13th.

Savannah Guthrie from the show TODAY She also confirmed that DeGeneres will come for a separate, exclusive interview with her on the 13th.
