Degeneres Cancels New York Show?

LATEST: ELLEN DeGENERES has reportedly axed plans to film her talk show in Manhattan, New York, after she was criticised for crossing the striking Hollywood picket line. The TV star came under fire for not joining protestors like TV hosts David Letterman or Jay Leno in order to film her series, Ellen: The Ellen DeGeneres Show last Tuesday (06Nov07). And although her representative defended her actions on the grounds she is the host of a syndicated show and not a network-owned programme, DeGeneres has scrapped plans to film in the city. According to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, DeGeneres agreed to cancel the show after receiving a letter from Writers Guild East. The Writers Guild letter warned, "We certainly intend to let Ellen know our dissatisfaction in person if she decides to proceed with the shows she has scheduled in New York on November 19th and 20th. We will also make our voices heard the preceding week if she tries to pre-tape comedy segments on location."
