The Nick Cannon Show and The Wendy Williams Show, without Williams, were expected to return to production on January 3rd. However, due to the rising cases of COVID-19, they will be back on January 10th.

Personally, I think they won’t return with live episodes until at least February because I expect to see a jump in cases due to Christmas and New Year’s Eve gatherings. It will be just like last year. Hopefully, it won’t be, but it will be.

I also expect all of the other live talk shows to do the same.

Get the vaccine, wear a mask, wash your hands, and social distance.


Michael Rapaport fills in for Sherri Shepherd who’s filling in for Wendy Williams

Sherri Shepard was supposed to fill in Wendy Willams this week and next, but Michael Rapaport was sitting on the purple throne today.

So what happened? Shepherd went in for emergency surgery yesterday for am appendicitis. She is resting and will hopefully be back doing the show later this week.

When it comes to Williams, she will not be back until at least February.

UPDATE: Sherri Shepherd shot a video from her Bellvue Hospital bed, and she wanted us to know that she will be back hosting the show tomorrow.

This is just another reason why they will be offering her the show full-time in the Fall.


Wendy Williams will not be back in January

Wendy Williams has not done her show since the season started in September due to her thyroid condition, and today we found out that she will not be back for all of January.

The Wendy Willams Show announced who will be sitting on her purple throne next month. Fat Joe and Remy Ma start it off, followed by Michael Rapaport for the second week, then Kym Whitley and Finesse Mitchell for the third, and finally Sherri Shepherd to close out the month.

At this point, I don’t think they are going to renew Williams’ contract that is up in 2022. I mean, she has missed more of the season than she could do. And that is saying if, which I doubt she will, returns in February. My gut says she won’t be back at all. What do you think?


It’s official, Wendy Williams will not host her show until 2022

The Wendy Williams Show announced today that Sherri Shepherd will guest host the show again from December 13th-17th. After the 17th, the talk show will go on hiatus for the rest of 2021.

That means that an ailing Wendy Williams has not hosted her show in the latter half of this year.

If Shepherd gets good ratings again, I have a feeling they will be offering her the job to start in the Fall. Williams’s contract is up this Spring, and I can’t see them giving her a new one. I mean, she is absent from the show more than she is present. In the non-television world, she would have been replaced by now and put on medical leave.

I mean, let’s say she returns in January; she will have missed almost four months of work because of her undisclosed illness.

I want her to get better. But, it is not fair to other people who lose their jobs because of medical issues like cancer and can’t afford the medical bills.


Leah Remini will guest host The Wendy Williams Show for two weeks

Wendy Williams hasn’t hosted her show all season due to health issues stemming from her Grave’s Disease, so they have had guest hosts fill in for her. Leah Remini was the first one to do it, and she will be back to sit on the purple throne again for two weeks starting on November 29th with her friend Michelle Visage.

At this rate, it looks like Williams will not be back until at least 2022.

And that might be the last year she hosts her show. Sadly for her, the ratings have been good with the guest hosts. So, I wonder if Debmar-Mercury is considering replacing her permanently with one of the guest hosts in September. Would you blame them if they did? I wouldn’t. I mean, she has taken several leaves over the last few years, so I am sure they want a host they can depend on that will show up for work.
