Rumored: Ellen DeGeneres to GSN?

It appears that the Emmy-winning daytime talk show host and former American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres may be on her way to a dating game show, possibly to GSN.

Even though the concept of DeGeneres hosting or producing a dating game show is still up in the air, GSN is currently attempting to develop two new dating series, Mind of a Man and Where Have You Been All My Life, proposed in the upfronts.

Where Have You Been All My Life has been piloted already. Mind of a Man has had no movement. Either one or both of these shows could make it to air sometime this television season, or neither. It is simply how cable television works.

There has been extremely little movement for pushing talks between DeGeneres and GSN, but if Ellen wants to host a dating-game show, GSN is the network.

With GSN's success of Baggage, another dating game show is in the market. Seriously, Mind of a Man and Where Have You Been All My Life do not sound like disasters and DeGeneres could really attract an audience to GSN.
