The Ellen DeGeneres Show is changing from Cincinnati's  WCPO 9 (an ABC affiliate) to WLWT 5 (NBC) in September and it's setting off a round of time slot musical chairs.

According to Cincinnati.com,

When “Ellen” debuts at 4 p.m. Sept. 8 on Channel 5, “Dr. Oz” will go to the 2 p.m. “Dr. Phil” slot.

“Dr. Phil” will leave Channel 5 after a dozen years to air at 3 p.m. on Channel 12. That will push Wayne Brady’s “Let’s Make A Deal” from 3 p.m. to 10 a.m., for a two-hour CBS game show block with “The Price is Right.” Bethenny Frankel’s “Bethenny” talk show at 10 a.m. was canceled.
