Nick Cannon Updates: Given his daytime talk show’s mediocre ratings, Nick Cannon may likely fill Wendy Williams’ slot. As everyone knows, the 41-year-old father of seven’s syndicated show premiered with less than 500,000 watchers and earned negative reviews.
And yet top management in New York is supposedly so distraught to secure a different plan amidst Williams’ ongoing medical issues that they finally agreed Cannon would be the next in a row for that highly desired 10 a.m. slot.
According to The Sun, if Wendy doesn’t really come back to her iconic purple chair, The Nick Cannon Show will replace The Wendy Williams Show.
If The Wendy Williams Show discontinues or if she does not return to the show, they are willing to move Nick to the 10 a.m. hour slot. This slot follows immediately after the local news broadcast, as said by an insider. The insider also says that is the strategy for passing the time in the New York market.
Other stations throughout the country broadcast both shows back-to-back. So, they will most probably emulate New York’s pattern, according to the source.

However, a second source told the magazine that no final choices are made. It is because the showrunners intended to see what happened. Williams has not signed a new deal as of yet because her program has not been extended further than the latest season, which is No. 13.
It all relies on how her numbers look at that point. They are currently better than predicted without her, as said by the source.
Early this week, the 57-year-old former radio-to-television star took to Instagram to inform her followers that her health has been a big topic, as everyone is aware. As per the post, she says that she is progressing. But this is also amongst those things that take longer than intended.
She also let her fans know that she is a “woman of a certain age,” and therefore, needs to listen to her physicians. So she would return to the show whenever her medical professionals deem fit. She also praised all of her team and guest presenters for stepping up and filling in for her while she was away.
