Nick Cannon ‘Sincerely Apologize’ for Announcement of 8th Child

Nick Cannon Talk Show Canceled Due to Low Ratings

Entertainer Nick Cannon now has more room in his schedule to pursue other ventures as it has been reported that his daytime talk show has been canceled.

According to The Sun, the talk show by Cannon was canceled due to low ratings. The show was on the air less than a year as it debuted last fall to dismal ratings. A source revealed to The Sun that Nick Cannon garnered a .4 through the season, which comes out to around 400,000 viewers.

“You can’t survive with those ratings. That’s Bethenny Frankle and Kris Jenner talk show rating territory- it didn’t end well for their shows either.”

With the cancellation of the show, it’s rumored that the new talk show being hosted by Jennifer Hudson will take over the current time slot Cannon currently has.

“Jennifer’s new deal with Fox had yet to be an announced time slot. Not many people have been told yet, but her show is expected to get Nick’s time slot,” according to a source.

This despite last week, Variety reporting Warner Bros. announcing that the Academy Award winner would have a talk show that will air on Fox television stations. The report stated The Jennifer Hudson Show is slated to occupy the current time slot The Ellen DeGeneres Show has. DeGeneres is completing her final season, which is in its 19th year and will be ending soon.

Last year in September, according to The Sun, Cannon was reportedly worried that Wendy Williams’ absence from her show, which ran reruns in her time slot, would affect his own ratings as the lead-in to his show.

Variety has reported that the producers of the show released a written statement regarding the cancellation.

“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,’” said Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, co-presidents of the show’s producer-distributor, Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury. “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.”
