The Ellen DeGeneres Show will end after its 19th season in 2022 and The Kelly Clarkson Show is reportedly set to take over the daytime slot.

"NBC believes Kelly is the perfect choice to take the throne from Ellen. They have invested so much money and time into the brand ... they really have faith in her to bring in that advertising revenue," sources revealed last month.

As Radar reported, the American Idol winner has been groomed by network executives to take over DeGeneres' spot since she began her own talk show in 2019.

They aren't sad to see Ellen go either. We're told the network is "ecstatic" that she's ending her talk show after being accused of running a "toxic work environment."

"Nobody likes Ellen," an insider told us following the explosive allegations. "They have been wanting her gone forever. Kelly is a pleasure to work with and treats everyone on set kindly."

That's what makes Kelly Clarkson the best replacement for her.

"Everyone felt that Kelly was so easy to work with and was the perfect replacement for Ellen," our source said.
