“The Kelly Clarkson Show” will replace Ellen DeGeneres’ long time talk show’s daytime slot in most markets, Fox News has learned. NBC announced the news on Wednesday just weeks after revealing the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” will end in 2022.
“‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ has earned its dominance in daytime by hitting every benchmark for success since it premiered as the most-watched talk show in seven years,” the network said in a press release. The fans think so too, and the rating proves it.
“The hour-long program, hosted by Grammy Award-winning artist and America’s original idol, Kelly Clarkson, features a mix of celebrity guests and everyday people doing extraordinary things in their communities. It airs in 100% of the country across 200 stations and is positioned to headline daytime in leading time periods by Fall 2022.”
Kelly Clarkson, whose talk show was already renewed for an additional two seasons in December, received three Daytime Emmy Awards for the very first season of her show, making her a very obvious in-house choice to take over for Ellen DeGeneres once her show wraps at the conclusion of Season 19.
