On the heels of a strong May sweep ratings performance, Debmar-Mercury’s syndicated The Wendy Williams Show has been renewed on the Fox TV Stations through the 2016-17 television season. The three-year pickup, which follows the previous two-year deal, will bring Wendy‘s run to eighth seasons. “Fox’s long-term renewal is a testament to the incredible growth the show has experienced this season and the amazing talent of Wendy,” Debmar-Mercury Co-Presidents Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus said.

Lionsgate Blames Theatrical Film Woes For Fiscal 2Q Earnings Miss

The film and TV company had a net loss of $24.6M, an improvement from its $29.7M loss in the quarter last year, on revenues of $358.1M, down 21.5%. That revenue figure was far below the $421.5M that analysts expected. And the net loss, at 18 cents a share, was below the 13 cent loss the Street had forecast. The bottom line could have looked even worse: Lionsgate included the $11.0M it collected from its sale of Maple Pictures.
