The Fox television stations have renewed The Wendy Williams Show for two more seasons, keeping the syndicated talker from Debmar-Mercury on through 2014. The Wendy Williams Show — which recently scored an interview with Charlie Sheen in a synergy move as Debmar-Mercury is also distributing Sheen’s new sitcom — has been a strong performer on the Fox stations, where it originated with a trial run in 2008. But nationally, the program, which officially launched in 2009, ranks as the lowest-rated talk show in households. (It does better in the young demos.)
