When Oprah decided to move in a different direction, Ellen DeGeneres became the next big daytime TV host. Unfortunately, for a host who built her brand on the concept of kindness and celebrity, Ellen now faces a potentially uncertain future. As one former employee told BuzzFeed News, “That ‘be kind’ bullshit only happens when the cameras are on. It’s all for show. I know they give money to people and help them out, but it’s for show.”
“It’s Monday, my favorite day. Because we’re here to rebrand Mondays; boy, did they get the short end of the deal?” an entirely earnest Barrymore said in front of a screen of virtual fans on the debut broadcast. “We love Mondays around here, because after obsessing over the weekend about all the things you need to do, I say, Mondays is the day to get ‘er done. And look ahead to all the great things you can do this week.”
