The Wendy Williams Show is an American syndicated talk show hosted by Wendy Williams. The show is produced by Debmar-Mercury, and airs internationally,[2] 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,[3] and has since been renewed through the 2016–17 television season.[4][5]

In early 2008, Fox Television Stations picked up the show for their O&O stations to air after their local morning newscasts, and BET picked up the show in early 2009.[6] Further stations picked up the program for a full nationwide launch for the 2009-10 fall season.

The show was initially taped at the Chelsea Studios in New York City, then 433 West 53rd Street. Season 4 marked the return of the show being taped in the Chelsea Studios.[7]

The program goes live with a studio audience Mondays through Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. Eastern/9 a.m. Central and is carried live on some stations in those areas, with other stations carrying it on tape delay, along with those westward. The Friday show pre-tapes after the Thursday show at 1:30 p.m. ET for airing the next day, a common work schedule for most New York-originated talk shows. In many markets the program competes with The View on ABC, the Kathie Lee Gifford/Hoda Kotb-hosted fourth hour of Today on NBC, and starting in September 2014, the syndicated program The Real.

The Wendy Williams Show went on the road for a 17 city promotional tour across the United States in 2011 presenting mini versions of the show at local malls.[8]

The show had its debut outside the United States on BET International in July 2010.[9] At the beginning of its sixth season, it was announced to be the number one daytime talk show among the demographic of women ages 25-54.[10]
