The Wendy Williams show on BET to stick with brand-new episodes during June and July for the second year in a row.


The Wendy Williams Show on BET (StarSat 190) will stick with brand-new episodes during the whole of June and July for the second year in a row when other American daytime TV talk shows end production to go on vacation.

South African viewers see the same episode, same day of The Wendy Williams Show in South Africa as is broadcast in America. Besides South Africa, The Wendy Williams Show is seen in 51 countries around the world.

"By keeping the lights on throughout June and July, in a quiet period traditionally reserved for first-run shows to take their summer hiatuses, we intend to once again follow a strategy that has worked very well for us this past year," says the show in a statement.

"By remaining in production, we can offer Wendy's younger fans that are home from school and college the opportunity to get their take on the day's hottest topics and guests from a talented, multi-faceted host whose rising popularity is a reflection of her universal appeal".
