Nick Cannon’s talk show is cancelled after only one season due to poor ratings… but episodes will air until May as they were pre-taped
Nick Cannon’s talk show has been canceled.
Low ratings are blamed for the cancellation of the The Nick Cannon Show which premiered on Fox and in syndication in September 2021.
‘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,’ said Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, co-presidents of the show’s producer-distributor, Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury.

‘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,’ it was added.
Thanks to pre-taping, viewers will be able to watch new episodes through the remainder of the season, which ends in May.
In December, the grieving father revealed in an emotional episode that his five-month-old son, Zen, had died of a brain tumor.
