The NBC Television Stations Division, which represents 14 local TV channels owned and operated by the network, has committed to picking up the one-hour syndicated talk-variety show The Ellen DeGeneres Show, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Those stations represent more than 30% of the country. "The Ellen DeGeneres Show will highlight DeGeneres's background in stand-up comedy and her 'everywoman' approach to life's everyday situations," said Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution president Dick Robertson. "Her relatability to women is extraordinary."
