James Corden 'to replace scandal hit Ellen DeGeneres' talk show slot'?

A comedian offered donations in exchange for stories about Ellen DeGeneres being 'one of the meanest people alive.' He got 2,000 replies.

The allegations, which were made by several former staff members in a BuzzFeed article earlier in July, painted a radically different view of life behind the cameras from the upbeat and positive vibe presented by DeGeneres on the show.

James Corden is reportedly being lined up to "supersede" Ellen DeGeneres and become the new head of the afternoon TV talk show circuit, according to a new report out this weekend.

The world of talk shows is proving to be much more scandalous than we thought.

Corden, known for creating and starring in sitcom Gavin and Stacey and for acting in films including One Chance and Cats, now hosts The Late Late Show on rival network CBS under a contract that expires in 2022.

The aforementioned toxic environment claims were first reported a few weeks ago. NBC Entertainment Chairman Paul Telegdy is part of the team overseeing the investigation - with a source claiming the exec is a big fan of James and is lining him up to take over.

"This issue has fast tracked everything and made everyone look at the future today".

But things might be coming to an end for DeGeneres's long-running show. "Know more than one who were treated horribly by her.⁩ Common knowledge". As we've grown exponentially, I've not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I'd want them done.

The statements follow the news that the show is now the subject of an internal investigation after dozens of current and former employees spoke about a "toxic work culture". Some didn't. That will now change, and I'm committed to ensuring this does not happen again.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show, or Ellen, which has been on air since 2003, has come under fire following allegations of sexual misconduct and abusive behaviour perpetrated by writers and producers at the high-rating daytime talk show.

Guess we'll see in time whether Lassner is right or not.
