“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Is Reupped Through 2020

(via Variety)

This is particularly notable as only Jimmy Fallon has a longer contract in place as a talk show host.

While the boys fight it out on late night, Ellen DeGeneres has held her position in daytime on The Ellen DeGeneres Show quite firmly for several years now and a number of local TV affiliates have renewed their contracts for the next five years. 

Fallon has one year up on Ellen as his next set of contract negotiations come in 2021, but Ellen has also got Ellentube and Finding Dory coming out this year.

While you might have said 2016 might be your year, it’s definitely going to be Ellen’s year.
