DeGeneres Show to Remain on NBC Stations Through 2014

The Ellen DeGeneres Show has been renewed by Warner Bros Domestic TV for three more seasons, meaning it will remain on NBC -owned and operated stations through 2014. Many had thought Ellen might jump from NBC to ABC when her contract expired in 2011 to take over Oprah’s time slot, as Winfrey’s show will go off the air in September 2011.

“I’m so excited to sign on for three more years at NBC,” DeGeneres said after today’s announcement. “They were the ones that believed in my show from Day 1. So, I’m thrilled to know I’ll be here ‘til at least 2014. Things will be a lot different by then. I won’t be dancing over my coffee table anymore. Through the magic of 3D, I’ll be dancing over yours!”

This news comes after Tyra Banks announced in December that this will be the final season of The Tyra Show. At this rate, the only one left to take over Oprah’s throne will be Rachel Uchitel.
