Staffers at the show have not been officially informed yet, although many have already started looking for new gigs as a result of the show's mediocre ratings, as reported by Page Six.

According to the outlet, Cannon's show — which premiered in September 2021 — brought in only 400,000 viewers a day, with ratings that "show no signs of growth," a source pointed out.

"You can't survive with those ratings. That's Bethenny Frankel and Kris Jenner talk show rating territory — it didn't end well for those shows either," a different insider dished to The Sun. (Jenner's show only lasted a six-week test run, while the RHONY alum's series was canceled after one season.)

The update comes after another source previously told the outlet that Cannon, 41, was nervous The Wendy Williams Show — which was also recently given the ax — would cause his own show to tank when the ailing host stepped back in September due to another set of health woes. (The former America's Got Talent star first landed his own show after filling in for Williams during her absence in 2020 because of health complications.)

"He was relying on Wendy to give his new show a huge lead-in audience," the insider spilled at the time. "His new show follows her — and it's the same producers. The pressure is on him to get ratings — and without a huge lead-in, he's dead."

In replacement of The Masked Singer host's show slot is Jennifer Hudson's upcoming talk show, it was reported. Cannon's production company has yet to release a statement to address the news, but an insider claimed the announcement is imminent.

"Jennifer's new deal with Fox had yet to be an announced time slot," another source told the outlet. "Not many people have been told yet, but her show is expected to get Nick's time slot."

Cannon is expected to be able to finish filming the rest of his season before Hudson's show starts in the fall.
