Ellen DeGeneres is sticking around the daytime genre. The comic announced on Tuesday she signed a new deal which will have her hosting The Ellen DeGeneres Show through 2022. Rumors swirled for quite some time that DeGeneres would exit the show she's hosted since 2003. DeGeneres squashed the chatter by saying,

From the beginning, I said this show was going to be like a relationship. We’ve been through the good, the bad, the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ phase. It’s been a lot of fun and 16 years is a pretty good run. Sometimes in a relationship, you need to take a break. But I don’t. You’re stuck with me. I just signed for three more years.
