They state about Ellen, “With just one year left on her existing deal, the multimillionaire host will enter talks about The Ellen DeGeneres Show next month. Her ratings have slipped 8 percent, according to official stats, and The Kelly Clarkson Show — which airs after Ellen in most syndication markets — could well take the Ellen show’s 3 p.m. slot if it comes to an end.”
They add that last year, the Kelly Clarkson Show was the most-watched new daytime talk show in seven years. Also, her ratings matched Ellen’s.
There is no word yet on if this is true from either Kelly or Ellen’s reps.
