Distribution company Debmar-Mercury announced Tuesday that The Wendy Williams Show has been renewed through the 2011-2012 season.
The daytime show, which airs on Fox, launched nationally in July. Its recent performance record includes strong appeal among young women, reported Broadcasting & Cable.
"In September and October, Wendy Williams has improved 23% in households, according to Debmar-Mercury. The show also is doing well among young female audiences that advertisers seek, increasing 43% among women 18-34, 38% among women 18-49, and 37% in women 25-54 compared to the show's first eight weeks on the air," reported Broadcasting & Cable.
The Wendy Williams Show experienced a bump in the road with gay fans in August when an executive told drag queen and performance artist Erickatoure Aviance that she would be removed from the audience if she tried to appear on camera in "costume" during a taping. The executive apologized.
