The comedian appeared on The Ellen Show this week, and while her time is usually all fun and games and full of shenanigans with the host, her most recent visit was more sentimental than comedic, as she revealed it would be her last time on the show.

Many celebrities will be experiencing the same feeling of good riddance, since this year marks the end of Ellen DeGeneres' iconic program, which first premiered in 2003.
