Will Nick Cannon potentially replace Wendy William's spot?

As time goes, the ball is rolling for Nick Cannon right now. Not only is he breaking out into his new daytime show, but Nick Cannon could also potentially be taking a seat on the famous purple couch on the Wendy Williams show due to the media mogul’s continued health concerns.

Executives of the Wendy Williams show are aiming to look for a backup plan due to the premiere of season three being pushed back several times because of Wendy’s health concerns. A source of the Wendy show told Page Six, “The executives have been talking. They are keeping a close eye on [Williams’] recovery and hoping for the best. But they have pushed back [her] show premiere several times, so they are already thinking of a backup plan.”

They also talked about how the interest in Nick Cannon comes from how popular he is, stating that it would be a win-win situation. “It would not be a far stretch for Nick to take her time slot…Debmar-Mercury [which produces both shows] is really pushing to make Nick Cannon's show a huge success,” the source continued. “He already has a major platform, and a huge fanbase, so it is an easy win. So, if Wendy’s show ends up being a no-go, their backup plan is already set.”

The season premiere is now set to air on October 18th. The account of the Wendy Williams’ show announced, “Wendy will not be returning with new shows on Oct.4. She has been and continues to be under a doctor’s care and is still not ready to return to work. We plan to return with new shows on Oct. 18. Her breakthrough covid case is no longer an issue and she has tested negative but she is still dealing with some ongoing medical issues.”

We hope and wish that Wendy Williams will recover soon and be in better spirits in preparation for her return.
