The Wendy Williams Show’s fans have reason to rejoice.

Shepherd announced her return to The Wendy Williams Show on Twitter the week of December 13th.
Shepherd previously guest-hosted in early November, and her shows received a 0.9 rating, up 13% from the week before. With this success, The Wendy Williams Show is now tied for third place among daytime syndicated talk shows with The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Kelly Clarkson Show.

While guest hosts like Shepherd, Whitney Cummings, and Michael Rappaport have filled in, the television host took to her show’s Instagram account to update viewers on her health and say how much she missed them.
“What’s new with you? ALL OF YOU ARE MISSED BY ME!” Williams started her new job. “My health has been a heated topic, as everyone knows. I’m getting there, but it’s one of those things that takes longer than we anticipated. I’m an older woman who understands the importance of listening to my physicians and will return to my purple chair as soon as everyone agrees I’m ready.” “I want to thank my entire crew as well as our guest presenters for stepping up and filling in for me while I’m away,” Williams concluded. “I’d also like to express my gratitude to Debmar-Mercury and our stations for their patience and support while I make my way back. Above all, I want to express my gratitude to my fans. I’ve heard your prayers and read your remarks, and I’m overwhelmed with gratitude!” She added, “I’m speaking directly to my fans,” she said. “To me, you are everything. I enjoy spending my mornings with you all, and I’m working hard to get back to work, but Wendy has to focus on Wendy right now. I appreciate you taking the time to watch.”
