IS ‘SHE READY?!’ TIFFANY HADDISH IS AT THE ‘TOP OF THE LIST’ TO TAKE OVER AFTER ELLEN DEGENERES ENDS HER SHOW IN 2022
Thursday, May 13, 2021
When it comes to Tiffany Haddish, is “she ready” to take Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime TV crown? NBCUniversalseems to think so! The network told Page Sixthat Tiffany is considered a “favorite” which puts her at the “top of the list” to snag her own daytime talk show once Ellen exits.
“Tiffany is a favorite, she has humor and empathy in spades,” NBCUniversal shared—adding that “She’s top of the list to get a daytime show – she’s a fresh voice.”
Ellen exclusively told TheHollywood Reporter and her live audience that she would be ending her show after it’s 19th season in 2022.
When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged – and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore,” she shared. “My instinct told me it’s time. As a comedian, I’ve always understood the importance of…timing. In all seriousness, I truly have felt like next season was the right time to end this amazing chapter.”
Tiffany—who currently hosts Kids Say The Darndest Things—was a guest host on Ellen’s show back in October amid toxic workplace rumors that led to the firing of three executive producers, Ed Glavin, Kevin Leman, and Jonathan Norman.
