Fox Television Stations has renewed Sherri, the #1 new nationally syndicated daytime talker from Lionsgate’s Debmar Mercury, for two years through the 2024-25 season. The cash-plus barter freshman talk show hosted by actress, comedian and the Daytime Emmy Award-winning co-host of The View, Sherri Shepherd, gains the long-term extension from its anchor station group based on its first-season success. “I am so thrilled that Sherri has been renewed for two more years,” said Shepherd. “I launched this show with the mission to give daytime viewers a ‘good time,’ just like my theme song says. I am so appreciative that Fox and Debmar-Mercury have partnered with me to continue bringing more laughter, joy and inspiration to my audience.”
