The new queen of daytime TV Wendy Williams received some very good news this week.
Her hugely popular talk-show, The Wendy Williams show has been extended by two full months. Debmar-Mercury, the production company which produces the show, made the big announcement on Monday stating that the show would air through July.
“Wendy is absolutely thriving and, with its record-breaking sweeps finish, continuing spectacular ratings growth and ability to build on its lead-in, it is clear that this is the hottest program in the genre. Expanding the number of original episodes will allow us to continue the program’s incredible momentum well into the summer, when our core audience grows with younger viewers drawn to Wendy and her unique take on hot topics of the day,” says Debmar-Mercury Co-Presidents Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus.
Williams, whose show is now in its fourth season, went on to say, “I have the greatest fans in daytime TV, and I’m so excited to be giving fans more fun throughout the summer. If it were up to me, we’d have a show every day, all year long!”
In other Wendy news, she will be releasing her sixth book titled “Ask Wendy” very soon. The book is based on the recurring advice segment on her show and will be available to purchase on May 7.
Woo-woo shout it out!
