Ellen Degeneres quits Ame Idol

LOS ANGELES – Ellen DeGeneres announced on Thursday she was bowing out of “American Idol” after just one season on the judge’s panel.

Talk show host DeGeneres said in a statement that her job as judge “didn’t feel like the right fit for me” and added that she told Fox and the producers of the show that she would like to leave.

“It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for,” DeGeneres said.

Fox, which broadcasts the top-rated TV singing contest, said it supported her decision.

“We love Ellen and understand and support her decision to bow out of Idol,” said Peter Rice, chairman of entertainment, Fox Networks Group. “We were fortunate to receive the humor, energy and love for talent that she brought to the show.”

DeGeneres is the second judge to leave the TV show this year after the exit of Simon Cowell in May. Cowell’s replacement has not yet been announced.
