Nick Cannon Addresses Talk Show Being Canceled After Only One Season: ‘This Is Show Business’
It looks like Nick Cannon is addressing the elephant in the room!
On Thursday’s (Mar.10) episode of ”The Nick Cannon Show”, the 41-year-old comedian/actor addressed his shows cancellation, and the rumors that his program was ending to make room for Jennifer Hudson’s upcoming talk show.
“It’s interesting. This is show business and the biggest word is business. I show up each and every day, bright and early to give you a show and I am also a businessman. This has been a dream come true. I want to expand and elevate.”
“We ain’t going nowhere but it’s about broadening my audience. You have become my family. Thank you. We laugh together, we cry together, we pray together. I do what I can and we let God do what I can’t.”
Nick Cannon assured viewers that the show isn’t over just yet and will continue with the remaining episodes for the season.
“We still have more shows. This isn’t the last show. We have a month of shows that’s going to be on..This has been a blessing and dream come true. Thank you for letting me come into your homes.”
As previously reported, “The Nick Cannon Show” is being canceled after just six months on the air. Reportedly, ratings for the talk show showed
“no signs of growth.”
Late last year, we reported that the show was reportedly struggling with ratings. At the time, Radar Online reported that the show debuted
“at less than half a million viewers and receiving devastating reviews, the perennial television personality’s own syndicated program is not likely to take over Wendy Williams’ time slot, despite what rumors previously suggested.”
Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein–co-presidents of The Nick Cannon Show–had this to say about the cancellation.
“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.”
According to reports, the program won’t be going off the air just yet. Enough episodes have been filmed to take it through the rest of the season which is believed to end sometime in May.
