LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - Looks like Ellen DeGeneres won’t be replacing Oprah Winfrey on ABC stations anytime soon.
Her daytime talk show will continue to be broadcast on NBC’s 10 owned-and-operated stations, snuffing speculation that she might switch to ABC stations in the wake of Winfrey’s announced departure.
Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution has renewed Telepictures’ “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” for three additional seasons on the owned-and-operated stations of the NBC Local Media Division.
Winfrey disclosed in November that she will end the 25-year run of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in September 2011.
