The numbers from Nick Cannon’s eponymous daytime talk show, and they’re not good.

The multi-faceted artist was only able to muster around 400,000 viewers for his debut, finishing at the bottom of the talk show heap.

Cannon, who hosts “Wild ‘N Out” and “The Masked Singer” as well as his own morning radio show, isn’t the only one who suffered last week. Actresses Drew Barrymore averages around half a million viewers in her second season as a talk show host.

Wendy Williams, 54, considered the queen of daytime conversations, has 600,000 viewers despite her ten-year stint at the head of her eponymous show. It remains to be seen whether Williams will be able to return to her show in the near future, if at all, as she continues to battle a host of medical ailments, including the coronavirus release, as well as Grave’s disease and a thyroid problem.

There is a lot of speculation in the industry that Cannon could be the one to replace Williams if she is away for an extended period.

Showbiz 411 speculates that Cannon’s public support for National of Islam’s leading minister, Louis Farrakhn, as well as his controversial views on Jews in 2020 may have significantly hampered his ability to attract large audiences.

In contrast, “Jeopardy” attracted an average of 5.5 million viewers the week of October 3, 2021.
