What a difference a few seasons make. I remember cringing when I first heard radio shock jock Wendy Williams was coming to TV, now I count the funny, dishy diva among my guilty pleasures. A good thing too, since Williams' talk show just got picked up for a third season!
The Wendy Williams Show will return for Season 3 this September, after being renewed in more than 70 percent of the U.S., including stations belonging to the FOX, CBS, NBC, Local TV, Tribune, Lin, Cox, Raycom, Meredith and New Vision groups, according to a press release..
Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury, which syndicates the talker, made the announcement on Thursday.
“Wendy has reached new creative heights this season and stations have taken notice,” Bernstein and Marcus commented. “It has performed exceptionally well in recent months leading out of morning newscasts on the FOX stations, with viewers rediscovering Wendy’s fun, irreverent and entertaining style. We will work diligently with stations to ensure this franchise’s continued growth, both creatively and from a ratings standpoint, across all markets in the months and years ahead.”
You go, Wendy! Now if One Life to Live will just make Phyllis Rose a recurring role...
