She is a fan favorite possible replacement and it really doesn’t sound like wishful thinking since she’s reportedly at the top of the list amongst the bosses of the network.

Page Six reports that she totally impressed the NBC Universal bosses so she’s now at the top of their list to get her own talk show after Ellen’s 2022 season wraps up.
‘Tiffany is a favorite, she has a lot of humor and empathy in spades. She is top of the list to get a daytime show – she is a fresh voice,’ one source told Page Six.
This comes after Ellen DeGeneres told Hollywood Reporter that after nearly two decades as the host of her own talk show, she no longer feels like it’s a challenge for her.
She explained that ‘When you are a creative person, you need to be challenged constantly — and as great as this whole show is, and as fun as it is, it’s not a challenge anymore.’
She also talked about it on the latest episode of the show, telling her audience that she just felt like it was the right time.
