*“The Wendy Williams Show” has been renewed for an additional two seasons through 2014 on Fox-owned stations, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The syndicated daily one-hour talk show produced by Debmar-Mercury performs well across the country, including being the No. 1 rated show in its timeslot among women 25-54 in the New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Washington D.C., Houston, Detroit, Minneapolis, and Orlando markets.
This season, the show was the only daytime talk show to snag Charlie Sheen before his Comedy Central Roast and the debut of “Two and a Half Men” with his replacement, Ashton Kutcher. It also got Fantasia Barrino’s first comments on rumors that she had been fired from the biopic about gospel singer Mahalia Jackson.
