"I'm so excited to sign on for three more years at NBC," said DeGeneres, who has taken on the additional job of American Idol judge. "They were the ones that believed in my show from day one. So, I'm thrilled to know I'll be here 'til at least 2014. Things will be a lot different by then. I won't be dancing over my coffee table anymore. Through the magic of 3-D, I'll be dancing over yours!"
The pickup will take Ellen through its 11th season. The show — which airs on NBC's 10 owned-and-operated stations — rates as the No. 2 talk show, behind only The Oprah Winfrey Show. It has won 29 Daytime Emmys, including four wins for best talk show and best host.
