    Could say the same for all celebrity talk shows really. Some people like to switch their brain off when they watch them. Maybe you should turn on something else when Ellen comes on.

    Ya I hear what you are saying, I'm off work for a few months because if injury, so I said I'd watch it. Oh my, what a crock. These so called celebs are so far up their
    own rear its sickening. This passes for entertainment, give me a break.

    If you can sit and watch a good podcast show for 2 or 3 hours while they get in to deep topics, philosophy, science, humour, technology, psychology - then turn on Ellen, it feels like you kind need to cut off 80% of your brain to enjoy it. But there's a place for that too.

    Occasionally I'll watch an Ellen interview but I'd would have to be really bored or just trying to distract myself from something other than what I'm supposed to be doing.

    Traditional TV in general is so dated and ****. I mean, we have podcasts or online talk-shows where they can actually interview people on a much more enriching level that doesn't always have to stoop to the lowest common demoninator, light-hearted, highly formated ****e. It's slow but people are coming around to this.

    I'll try not to critcize Ellen too much. I know that show isn't chasing me or my demographic. But all those talk shows are kind of mind-numbing trash.

    Does she still do that weird crab dance thing? :D Seen it one day when she was in the middle of doing it (crab walking over a coffee table I think) and never went near it again.

    I wouldn't be using that paper of all papers a source for truth.


    Here is where they stole it from.

    ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ Workplace Under Investigation by WarnerMedia (EXCLUSIVE)
    “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has become the subject of an internal investigation by WarnerMedia following numerous accounts of workplace problems on the long-running daytime series, Variety has learned.

    Executives from show producer Telepictures and distributor Warner Bros. Television sent a memo to staffers last week saying they have engaged WBTV-owner WarnerMedia’s employee relations group and a third party firm, who will interview current and former staffers about their experiences on set, said sources.

    A Warner Bros. Television spokesperson declined to comment on the matter. A rep for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” did not immediately respond to Variety‘s request for comment.

    The memo comes on the heels of recent unflattering reports about working conditions at the show. In April, Variety reported on the treatment of legacy crew members during the coronavirus lockdown. In mid-July, BuzzFeed published a report alleging racism and intimidation on the show. The memo came from the desks of Telepictures executive vice president Donna Redier Linsk and WBTV vice president of human resources Donna Hancock Husband.

    The name of the third party consultant was not immediately clear. Both companies underscored their commitment to providing an environment where employees can flourish, said one of the individuals familiar with the document.

    BuzzFeed’s story contained a spectrum of accused racist behavior, from microagressions to jokes about mistaking two Black female employees with the same hairstyle, as well as criticism of statements allegedly made to another staffer by executive producer Ed Glavin. Glavin and fellow executive producers Andy Lassner and Mary Connelly addressed the allegations in a joint statement to Buzzfeed.........

    If I wanted to break a spy I'd stick them in white room with this on every wall.

    She is blaming her executives for not holding up the standards she sets.

    DeGeneres
    we immediately began an internal investigation and we are taking steps, together, to correct the issues.” Implying that other executives on the show had failed to uphold her standards of conduct, she vows: “That will now change, and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again......

    It's always the same, these people that portray a nice PC image of perfectness have something to hide ... always the same.

    I personally always found her phoney at least , insincere , didn't think she would be such a cu next Tuesday ... but not surprised.

    As my mother would say she always seemed a bit too sweet to be wholesome.

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,533 ✭✭✭✭ Beechwoodspark


    From the first time I saw her show I just KNEW it was all a sick act and she was a thundering b1tch

    Just something about the way she presented herself was so false and sinister

    She needs to resign in disgrace now. I hope the staff who’ve suffered can get serious financial settlements out of her. Absolute nightmare.


  • Registered Users Posts: 44,077 ✭✭✭✭ Mr.Nice Guy


    There was something about her demeanour that didn't sit well with me whenever I watched it. Just felt so phony and insincere.

    I'm glad she's in a world of ****. For a fair few years I've read stories of her and how shes an absolute c**t to work for. Glad to see it come out.


    That being said, I've heard Mariah Carey & Ariana Grade are no better. Albeit, they're not Tv hosts but still, people work for them and they're in the spotlight.
