The Ellen DeGeneres Show has been renewed through the 2019-2020 television season, which will be the show’s 17th. The syndicated TV series’ early renewal comes from ten NBC Owned and Operated (O&O) stations. The comic’s syndicated daytime talk show had previously been renewed through the 2016-2017 television season.

Love, love, love, love the Ellen show, so much , everyday it makes me laugh.
