After only six months on the air, Nick Cannon’s talk show was canceled.

Page Six has learned that Nick Cannon’s talk program will be canceled after only six months on the air.

Staff at the nationally syndicated show have yet to be told, according to sources. However, we’re informed that many of them were already seeking for new jobs because the show’s prospects appeared to be poor.

After impressing producers with his daytime talents while filling in for Wendy Williams after her protracted absence due to illness, the celebrity landed the role in 2020.

When the show was announced, the former Mr. Mariah Carey was also in high demand since Fox’s “The Masked Singer,” which he hosted, had been the No. 1 new show, with “more than 17 million… viewers in its record-breaking 2018 launch,” according to Fox.

If Williams’ program had to go off the air permanently due to her health, there was speculation of Cannon’s show taking its place.

According to Celebrity 411, Cannon’s show had only 400,000 viewers at the time, making it the lowest-rated talk show at the time. Williams’ show has a weekly audience of 600,000.

According to insiders, the show’s ratings “show no evidence of development.”Nick Cannon

Networks are also seeking for a home for Jennifer Hudson’s upcoming chat show, according to sources.

The news was initially reported by The Sun in the United States.

Ironically, the show may have been harmed as a result of Williams’ continual controversy.

The ill chat queen postponed the start of her new season in the fall of 2021 to recover, allowing networks to play reruns.

Cannon was “pissed” at the time, according to the Sun US, because the famous “Wendy Williams Show” — which ran right before his show — was meant to provide an audience boost that less-popular reruns couldn’t.

It said, “He’s counting on Wendy to deliver his new show a massive lead-in viewership.”

After making anti-Semitic remarks in 2020, Cannon was momentarily sacked by ViacomCBS, where he presents “Wild ‘n’ Out.” He was rehired when he issued a public apology.

Debmar-Mercury, the production firm behind the show, declined to comment. Cannon didn’t respond to our request for comment.
