Ellen
DeGeneres

TV Host

DeGeneres has spent 16 years hosting the Emmy-winning “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and after rumors she’d end her run, the endearing comedian renewed through 2022, taking a larger ownership stake. Her Ellen Digital Ventures has wowed the Internet, and she produces NBC’s “Little Big Shots,” “Ellen’s Game of Games” and Netflix’s upcoming 13-episode Dr. Suess adaptation “Green Eggs and Ham.” She is joining the creators of hit musical “Come from Away” on a CW drama, just inked four shows with streamer-to-be HBO Max and will host three 2019 NBC holiday specials with “Ellen’s Greatest Night of Giveaways.” And lest we forget, DeGeneres broke boundaries both in 1986 as the first female comic to chat on “The Tonight Show” and in 1997 with her coming-out sitcom episode.
