Despite her critically acclaimed stint as host of Sunday night’s Emmy
Awards, Ellen DeGeneres‘s new sitcom, Ellen, is not likely to
remain on CBS for long, the New York Post observed today.
The newspaper quoted Allison Johnson, supervisor of national
broadcast research for media buyers Zenith Media as saying: “I know that
CBS used [the Emmys] as an opportunity to promote the show [and] to give
people more of a feel for Ellen and her style … but I’m not sure
that’s going to make a difference.”
The network declined to comment on
the show’s future viability.
