Ellen got some great news last week:

BURBANK, Calif. (February 10, 2010) – Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution (WBDTD) has renewed Telepictures ProductionsEmmy® Award–winning talk program The Ellen DeGeneres Show for three additional seasons on the owned-and-operated television stations of the NBC Local Media Division. The joint announcement was made today by Ken Werner, President, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, and John Wallace, President, NBC Local Media Division.

This will keep her show on through 2014.  The timing isn’t very surprising since her American Idol debut (on the first episode of the Hollywood editions) saw the show’s ratings increase by 10% over the same edition last year.  The show saw its biggest viewership this season since the premiere.

This move is VERY smart on NBC’s part. They are in a great position to take over that #1 spot (and keep it) once Oprah switches to her cable channel (OWN).  And Ellen is a great & strong personality that really has no competition.
