Nick Cannon, a new union daytime talk show, which had been scheduled for a national launch on October 5, will not debut this year. I hear that the production stopped on the speaker in the latest fallout from the anti-Semitic remarks that the actor-comedian recently made on his podcast.”We stand with Nick in our hope that in the fall of 2021 he will be able to use his extraordinary talent and platform to entertain, enlighten and unite his audience on Nick Cannon’s talk show,” the companies behind the show, Lionsgate and its division. Debmar-Mercury said in a statement in which they condemned anti-Semitism and racism. Here is the full statement:

The Nick Cannon Talk Show will not debut this year. After conversations with Nick, we believe his public comments do not reflect his true feelings and his apologies are sincere and sincere. We want to continue the healing process as he meets with leaders of the Jewish community and engages in dialogue with our distribution partners to hear their views. We stand with Nick in the hope that in the fall of 2021 he will be able to use his extraordinary talent and platform to entertain, enlighten and unite his audience in Nick Cannon’s talk show.

Nick Cannon to Stay Host of Fox’s “The Masked Singer” After Apologizing for Anti-Semitic Comments

Lionsgate and Debmar-Mercury condemn anti-Semitism, racism and hate speech. It goes against everything we stand for.

Nick Cannon had been knocked out over 90% of US Cannon’s production company, Ncredible Entertainment, and Debmar-Mercury co-produced the speaker, who presents his views on the latest pop culture stories and celebrity interviews.

Earlier this week, Cannon also kept his job as host and producer for Fox’s hit series The masked singer after apologizing for his controversial comments. ViacomCBS was the first to take action, breaking ties with Cannon, the creative force behind the long sketch comedy MTV / VH1 Wild ‘n Out.
