The Ellen DeGeneres Show haemorrhages a million viewers after toxic workplace scandal


Beleaguered tv presenting royalty Ellen DeGeneres cannot seem to get past last year’s bad press about a toxic work environment on her eponymous daytime talk show.  


The Ellen DeGeneres Show has had to address accusations by former staff of bullying and more besides and even made a full apology in the first episode of season 18 which was a ratings hit… until the viewers switched off. 


She has averaged 1.5 million viewers over the last six months compared to 2.6 million over the same period last year. 


Ellen is a pioneer when it comes to LGBT visibility formally years and had already discussed leaving the show before this furore. 


Let’s hope that if she does, she maybe has a period of reflection and then comes back with the next big TV hit!
