The Wendy Williams Show is an American syndicated talk show hosted by Wendy Williams. The show is produced by Debmar-Mercury, and airs nationally, and is re-broadcast on BET. It premiered on July 14, 2008 as a six-week trial in Detroit, Dallas, Los Angeles, and New York City. After the test run, the show was picked up for a full season, and has since been renewed through the 2016–17 television season.
In early 2008, the Fox Broadcasting Company picked up rights to the show and BET picked up the show in early 2009.
The Wendy Williams Show went on the road for a 17 city promotional tour across the United States in 2011 presenting mini versions of her show at local malls.
The show had its debut outside the United States on BET International in July 2010. It is broadcast in 52 countries and on weekdays at 9pm in the UK and re-runs are shown several times a day. It is broadcast one day after the usual US broadcast.
