The two-season order is in addition to the daytime talk show's renewal through 2012 back in January. The Wendy Williams Show, which premiered in July, 2008, has prospered on Fox stations, but often struggles in other markets.
"Wendy is delivering a great show every day that stands out from the pack and continues to grow creatively," said Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, co-presidents of the show's production company, Debmar-Mercury. "This season's episodes are fresh, funny and star-studded, and her must-see 'Hot Topics' segments are simply compelling. With viewers, audiences and affiliate stations embracing her show more than ever, we believe that the franchise is still poised for additional growth."
