Five People Who Could Replace Ellen DeGeneres That Aren't James Corden

James Corden is rumored to be replacing Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show, as the host continues to face intense backlash for claims of a toxic work environment.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show is now reportedly the focus of an internal investigation by its parent company, WarnerMedia amid accusations of a toxic workplace culture, racism, and sexual harassment—amid reports that the 62-year-old wants to quit the show.

Corden, who hosts The Late Late Show, is now the favorite to replace DeGeneres if she decides to leave, according to a source published in The Sun newspaper.

"This issue has fast-tracked everything and made everyone look at the future today," the source told the publication. "James Corden was being eyed for Ellen's job in the long term before any of this came to light. Now this shocking new development places a spotlight on the next step."

However, the #ReplaceEllen discourse surrounding Corden potentially being pipped to replace DeGeneres is not filling most people with joy—if Twitter is anything to go by.

Famously kind James Corden. :) https://t.co/ZcaWjyvIAW
