We know a lot of you are probably wondering, when did Nick Cannon get a talk show? Well, truth of the matter is, despite it's lack of popularity Nick Cannon was able to secure interviews with some of his friends who are some of the biggest names in Hollywood including Kevin Hart who appeared in Cannon's premiere episode, SNL's Keenan Thompson and daytime's biggest host and busiest man in TV, Steve Harvey to name a few.
Well, despite all of the support from his celebrity circle, all pretty decent things must eventually come to an end as long as ratings have their way.
The colorful and upbeat Nick Cannon daytime talk show is coming to an end after just one season. The show’s producer-distributor, Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury, is expected to tell the crew that the two episodes filming today will be the talker’s last ones.
Original plans had been for the show to go on a five-week hiatus while Nick Cannon was off filming Fox’s The Masked Singer and VH1’s Wild “N Out, with the crew getting a week of pay during the break. Nick Cannon will instead permanently shut down production, with the crew getting severance.
The show won’t get off the air right away; there are enough episodes in the can to take it through the season, sources 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.”
Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury, said in a statement.
The Nick Cannon Show originally was slated for a fall 2020 launch on the Fox stations. It was already in production and cleared in 90% in the country when it was put on hold in July of that year in a fallout from the anti-Semitic remarks the actor-comedian had made on his podcast. The show ultimately launched on September 28, 2021.
