The 2 Broke Girls creator commented, "Nobody can ever replace Wendy but we will do what we can to fill in so she can come back stronger than ever. She's gone so hard for so long and as much as I miss seeing her every day, just imagine how hilarious she is gonna be after some time to take care of herself and have some quiet time to think!," adding a red heart emoji.

Cummings reached out to the audience for their opinions, writing, "feel free to send me topics you guys want covered! We all wanna make Wendy proud."

The new round of guest hosts comes as actress Leah Remini received mixed reviews from viewers as she started her four-day stint on the chat show Tuesday.

But others were not having Remini's hosting skills over Williams', with one viewer commenting that they would prefer that there be no show at all: “How do you have the wendy show without wendy....wendy has already made her mark, got her star, had a movie....she needs to take care of herself and cancel the show.”
