Nick Cannon: Cancelled, No Season 2 For The Syndicated Daytime Talk Show (Reaction) – TV Shows Canceled + Renewed
It looks like Nick Cannon won’t be as busy in the immediate future. It will always host The Masked Singer on FOX and the Wild ‘N Out series on VH1 but, the Nick Cannon talk show was canceled after one season on the air.
The syndicated series launched in September last year. It was supposed to launch in 2020 with clearances in 90% of the country, but was delayed following Cannon’s anti-Semitic comments.
According to Deadline, it was planned to halt production for five weeks while Cannon worked on his other projects. Given the low ratings, the decision was then made to close the Nick Cannon series for good. Yesterday the final two episodes were filmed and the crew was told they would not be returning to work. Reportedly, enough episodes have already been filmed to complete the season.
“It is never easy to cancel a production with obvious potential but, after long deliberations and consideration of various options, we have made the difficult business decision to end production on Nick Cannonsaid Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury, in a statement. “We plan to bring viewers original episodes of the daytime talk show for 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 successful businesses.
Via footage from the show, Cannon addressed the cancellation, acknowledged it was a business decision, and spoke of his appreciation for the team and the audience.
