  • I think that she used the show as a mouthpiece regarding her sexuality
  • While sexuality may be an open topic now back then people were a little more tight lipped about the issue and this may have caused them lose ratings

      Ellen was a television series starring Ellen Degeneres and it was a half hour situational comedy. Ellen was a bit of a weird show for me because it seemed to always be entangled with Ellen Dengenere’s personal life.

      I think that she used the show as a mouthpiece regarding her sexuality. Before she had come


      out the character in the show was straight and dating men. When rumors circulated that she may be a lesbian, the show was full of little jokes such as Ellen jumping out of a closet and when she decided to tell the world she was gay so did her character and then the show focused ...

      • on her dating women.

        I think this was ultimately the downfall of this show. A series should be about the characters not the actors. I also think the show made too bold a statement for that moment in time. While sexuality may be an open topic now back then people were a little more

        tight lipped about the issue and this may have caused them lose ratings.

        I also think that this was a pretty heavy topic for a comedy. A comedy series should be light hearted and fun not a politcal mouthpiece. Overall I think this where the show lost it’s magic, when it lost it’s element of fun.
