It’s Finally Over: Wendy Williams Show Officially Canceled

Posted February 21, 2022 by with 9 comments

The Wendy Williams Show was trash TV that offered nothing substantive, thought-provoking, or even mildly entertaining. To be sure, trash TV can be fine if it’s funny or smart, but Wendy Williams was neither. Now, after months of rumors, her show’s been officially canceled due to the host’s endless health problems, and it’ll be revamped with a new name and a new permanent replacement. Ironically, that replacement will be Sherri Shepherd, the former host of another worthless daytime talk show, The View. I give Shepherd less than a year before her version of the show will be pulled off the air. Via Radar:

Wendy Williams’ fans are set for a shock this week as the talk show host’s producers are set to drop a bombshell.

According to sources connected to the situation, this week, the announcement will be made that Sherri Shepherd is taking over from Williams as host.

We’re told the producers felt they had been bending over backward for Williams for the past several months. She was initially scheduled to return for season 13 of The Wendy Williams Show in September but the date was pushed back several times.

Eventually, the producers revealed Williams was dealing with various medical issues and they brought on a variety of guests hosts.

Around the same time, sources leaked the news that Williams had voluntarily checked herself into the hospital for a psychological evaluation. She was released days later and photographed being pushed around in a wheelchair in New York.

Over the weekend, B. Scott was the first to report Williams’ staff was notified by producers of the decision. A source told the outlet, “The producers informed everyone that the [Wendy Show] was being canceled at the end of June. Then in the next breath they hired everyone to work on the new Sherri show.”
