Ellen DeGeneres' Final Show: See How the Host Capped 19 Years in Daytime

When Ellen DeGeneres began her very last show Thursday, she promised her audience of 19 years that this wasn’t the end of their relationship. “It’s more of a little break,” she said. “You can see other talk shows now, and I may see another audience every once in a while.”

Filmed on April 28, DeGeneres’ big sendoff featured the return of her first-ever guest, Jennifer Aniston, an interview with Billie Eilish (who made her daytime TV debut on Ellen in 2018) and a performance by P!NK, on hand to perform one of DeGeneres’ favorite songs. And the hour concluded the same way the series began in September 2003, with DeGeneres planted on a couch in front of a TV — only this time, instead of realizing she was on TV and set to do a show, she grabbed the remote and shut the TV off, bringing her daytime journey to a close.
