Nick Cannon news reveals that The Masked Singer host’s daytime talk show is back on track and scheduled to drop in fall. His show was delayed after a controversy grew around anti-Semitic comments Cannon made on his podcast last summer.
Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury is set to debut the syndicated show, titled Nick Cannon, and Fox Television Stations will serve as the lead affiliate group.

Cannon’s controversial comments occurred during a June episode of his podcast, Cannon’s Class. Reportedly, he and Richard Griffin were talking about anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and Cannon said Black people are, “the true Hebrews.”
He said, “It’s never hate speech. You can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people when we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews.”
ViacomCBS broke ties with him following the podcast and Cannon apologized for his remarks. He stated that he was “ashamed” and wanted to educate himself and would work on, “strengthening the bond between our two cultures today and every day going forward.”

We want to continue the healing process as he meets with leaders of the Jewish community and engages in a dialogue with our distribution partners to hear their views.”
They added, “We are standing by Nick in our hope that by fall 2021 he will be able to use his extraordinary talent and platform to entertain, enlighten and unite his audience on the Nick Cannon talk show.”
