Ellen won't be replacing Oprah — at least not on ABC.
The new "American Idol" judge has renewed her talk show with NBC for three more seasons, it was announced Wednesday.
"I'm so excited to sign on for three more years at NBC," Ellen said in the announcement. "They were the ones that believed in my show from day one. 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 3-D, I'll be dancing over YOURS!"
"Ellen is one of those unique personalities that comes along once in a generation," said Ken Werner, president of Warner Brothers Domestic TV. "Her program has been embraced by viewers as their generation's talk franchise, and we couldn't be happier that the NBC stations will continue to have 'Ellen' as the cornerstone of their syndicated lineup for years to come."
