Ellen DeGeneres announced on Wednesday, May 12, that she will be ending her famous daytime talk show after 19 seasons in 2022. Soon after, emotional fans of the show flocked online to find out how they could get their hands on a ticket for the final season of her show. 

DeGeneres told her audience that the decision to end her show, which fell upon her shoulders, was a difficult one to make -- one she had to meditate over. In the end, she had to accept the fact that "all good things must come to an end."

The comedian also later told Hollywood Reporter that “When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged — and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore."

The controversies regarding a toxic work environment and her "be kind" brand being a fake one for TV dogged the show after a number of guests and employees called Ellen out for being a "mean" person.

How to get tickets

One can visit the official website for EllenTube for availing tickets for the show. Due to the ongoing pandemic, right now, only virtual audience participation is allowed. According to the show's website: ''Tickets can only be requested when the day reads 'Tickets Available.' Blank days are not available to be requested at this time. Fully booked days have already been released on the calendar and are closed for ticketing requests."

The website also states: "If tickets are available on a date you would like, simply click on the day and fill out the ticket request form. You can only request one date so make sure the date available works for you and your guests."

It also clarifies that submitting a form "does NOT guarantee tickets to the show". The information page says: "A representative from our audience department will email you to book you in the order in which your request was received. If you do not receive an email within two weeks of the date of which you submitted, please resubmit with a new date selection." Since not everyone who applies for tickets will be able to get a spot in the end, the showrunners have apologized in advance. "We love all of our fans, and want to accommodate each and every one of you. If you don't hear from us, submit again, and we'll do our best to get you tickets!" the website said.
