The reason why she is ending her show is that according to the artist the show no longer challenges her creativity. The one thing that keeps an artist going is growing. If an artist can not show what he or she is made for, then continuing the thing is not a good choice.

However, there is one more allegation after which the rating of the show dropped. It was said that Ellen and other team members have created a toxic work environment on set. According to an allegation, some employees repeatedly faced bullying, harassment, and sexual assault from the top producers of the show. After the incident, Warner Bros. took the matter into its hand and fired three producers in one go. In the premiers of season 18, Ellen apologized for the behavior that her staff members had faced. 

In spite of this, the reason why she is ending her show is not related to any of those incidents. As she said that if those things have been the reasons, then she would not be doing any other season after the incident.
