‘The Wendy Williams Show’ Renewed Through 2016-2017

Talkshow has seen growth in key markets including NYC, LA

Wendy Williams’ eponymous yakker has been renewed by Debmar-Mercury through the 2016-17 TV season on Fox stations, it was announced today.

Renewal covers sixth, seventh and eighth seasons for the program.

The Wendy Williams Show’ has as much momentum as any show on our air right now, both qualitatively and quantitatively,” said Frank Cicha, senior VP of programming for the Fox Television Stations.  “Over the last few years, it’s evolved into the ideal lead-out to our morning news blocks. Like our news, the show delivers a day/date immediacy that serves as a blueprint for where we want to be the rest of the day.”

The syndicated talkshow has seen ratings blossom in daytime’s key demo of women 25-54 in markets including Gotham, Los Angeles and Chicago. On Fox’s WNYW New York, for example, “Wendy” doubled its year-to-year rating in women 25-54.

Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus said, ““Fox’s long-term renewal is a testament to the incredible growth the show has experienced this season and the amazing talent of Wendy. Our broadcast partners across the country have taken notice, demonstrating their faith in the staying power of this rapidly growing talk franchise with upgrades.”

“The Wendy Williams Show” is produced and distributed by Debmar-Mercury.
