NEW YORK — Fans of Ellen DeGeneres' daytime talk show have reason to feel reassured.

Show producers and NBC announced Monday that "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" has been renewed through 2017. Some 189 television stations, including the 10 owned by NBC, have committed to airing it.

In its 10th season, DeGeneres' show has scored some of its best ratings this season. Valari Staab, president of the NBC-owned TV stations, described the show as the "crown jewel" of NBC's daytime lineup.
