‘Nick Cannon’ Syndicated Talk Show Season 2 Is Canceled

After just one season, Nick Cannon’s self-titled syndicated daytime talk program will terminate. The two episodes being filmed today will be the talker’s final ones, the show’s producer-distributor Debmar-Mercury of Lionsgate is anticipated to inform the cast.

The program was supposed to take a five-week sabbatical while Nick Cannon was busy filming Fox’s The Masked Singer and VH1’s Wild ‘N Out, with the crew receiving a week’s compensation. Instead, Nick Cannon will permanently halt production, with the staff receiving severance.

There are enough episodes in the can to last the program through the season, according to insiders, so it won’t immediately go off the air.

The Fox Television Stations serve as the anchor group for the New York-based weekday talker. Two spots on the Fox Stations are now available for the upcoming season thanks to this week’s cancellations of Nick Cannon and The Good Dish on Sony Pictures TV, which in January took over for the venerable The Dr. Oz Show. A chat show with Jennifer Hudson was just picked up by the station group for the upcoming season; the time slots have not yet been determined.

Nick Cannon’s The Real could be canceled

Multiple sources claim that The Real, a seasoned panel chat program that airs on Fox duopoly stations, is likewise in danger of being canceled. Producer-distributor Warner Bros. denies this information.

The following season of Debmar-Mercury on the Fox Stations will have Sherri Shepherd as the host. It will replace The Wendy Williams Show, which will conclude its run this season after its host Williams was forced to take a leave of absence due to health difficulties.

The season’s lowest-rated single-host daytime syndicated talk program in terms of household ratings is Nick Cannon, which has averaged a 0.4 rating.

Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury, said “It’s never easy to cancel a production with clear potential but, after a great deal of deliberation and examining various options, we have made the difficult business decision to end production on Nick Cannon. We plan to offer viewers original episodes of the daytime talk show through the remainder of this season. Our thanks go to the very talented Nick Cannon and our wonderful production team, and we wish Nick continued success with his many hit ventures.”

Initially scheduled for an autumn 2020 debut on the Fox stations, Nick Cannon’s cancellation was also revealed by The Sun. When it was suspended in July of that year due to backlash from the actor-anti-Semitic comedian’s comments on his podcast, it was already in production and had received 90% of the nation’s clearances. In the end, the program premiered on September 28, 2021.

Along with his longtime manager, Michael Goldman, and the show’s creators, Katy Murphy Davis and Matt Strauss, Cannon executive produces the chat show The Masked Singer, which he presents for Fox and which airs on the Fox stations.
