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 rebroadcast 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 2016–2017 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 show was initially taped at the Chelsea Studios in New York City and at 433 West 53rd Street. Season 4 will mark the return of the show being taped in the Chelsea Studios.
The show had its debut outside the United States on BET International in July 2010.
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.
