After only one season, Nick Cannon’s syndicated daytime talk show is over.

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.

According to Deadline, the original plan was to go on a five-week hiatus while Nick Cannon is busy 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 multi-faceted star snagged the show in 2020 after impressing producers with his daytime talents when he filled in for Wendy Williams during her long absence due to ill health. There was even talk of Cannon’s show replacing Williams’s if her health meant it had to come off the air permanently.

But talks of replacement died down when audience numbers showed Cannon’s show picking up just 400,000 viewers, making it the lowest rated talk show at the time, according to Celebrity 411. Williams’s show averages 600,000.

And sources tell us that ratings for the show “show no signs of growth.”

The show will air the final few episodes before officially being taken off the air.
