Nick Cannon’s syndicated daytime talk has set a premiere date. 

Multiple outlets confirm that Nick Cannon is set to premiere September 21, making it the first new syndicated show to secure a debut date for the 2020-21 season.

The eponymous syndicated daytime talk show headlined by the actor-comedian will air in more than 90% of the US after being cleared on Fox, CBS, Sinclair, Hearst, Nexstar, Mission, COX, Sunbeam, Capitol, Meredith, Tegna, Lockwood, and Gray & CW Plus. 

“Clearances are climbing because our great station partners are hungry for a rising, versatile and dynamic talent like Nick,” Debmar-Mercury heads Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus said Monday in a statement. “His light-hearted style quickly wins over viewers and gives them a much-needed escape from the world. We’ve been asked why we skipped doing test shows and explained there was no need. It’s obvious to anyone who watched Nick guest host for Wendy Williams last year how much he loves daytime talk and, based on the reaction of fans, how much they love him.”
