Ellen DeGeneres may be hanging up her dancing shoes as the 60-year-old comedian is considering leaving "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" for good, The New York Times reported. She recently extended her contract until the summer of 2020, although she came close to declining.
"The Ellen DeGeneres Show", which first aired in September 2003, has been a staple in the daytime talk show lineup with 16 seasons and more than 2,700 episodes under its belt.
It has won 57 daytime Emmys.
As for DeGeneres, she said she has changed her mind on what direction she will take a couple of times. This would not stop her from doing anything charitable or appearing on other shows, but Ellen is her show and to hand it off to just anyone would feel wrong.
"I wanted to show all of me", she told The Times.
But that's not the kind of joke that works on The Ellen Degeneres Show, and she was anxious about hurting the kid's feelings, so she didn't say it.

And Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd said: "She was very clear that she won't be taking the general election in 2022". Irish prime minister Leo Varadkar, who met one-to-one with May, said she had put new ideas on the table.
However, that isn't the reputation she wants to have offscreen, and it's tabloid rumours suggesting she isn't pleasant to her show staff that really annoy her. Her comedy special, Relatable, debuts on Netflix December 18.
Now she tiptoes the line on whether or not she should leave the show that brought so much fame, fortune and awareness to causes dear to her heart.
"I never want to see Daniella that upset again in my life". "There's more range of emotion". "I'm walking down the street". "There's a tiny, tiny bit of difference". Though her acting credits have been minimal since her career as a talk show host began, she has notably voiced the beloved character "Dory" in both Finding Nemo and the sequel (which focused on her character's backstory), Finding Dory.
Ellen DeGeneres said she's considering ending her popular daytime talk show.
What keeps her going?
