Michael Rapaport is slammed by Wendy Williams’ fans.

Fans demanded that previous host Sherri Shepherd return to the Wendy Williams Show as Michael Rapaport began his week as a guest host.

As host Wendy Williams continues to take time off from her eponymous chat show for health reasons, fans wasted no time in giving their verdict on Michael’s debut.

“Why is Michael Rapaport guest hosting the Wendy Williams show?” one irritated viewer wondered, adding, “and why am I being subjected to this nonsense?”

“Today’s show was not it!” said another. “Come back, Sherri!”

“@sherrisherpherd is the PERFECT @WendyWilliams guest host…

Another tweet said, “No one else should be doing it.”

Michael, 51, thanked Wendy for trusting him to fill in on his first day of hosting on Monday.

He told the crowd, “I’m so glad to be here, I’m so excited to be here.”

“Wendy, thank you so much for entrusting your show to me.

We’re missing you.

“We can’t wait to see you again.”

Others were pleased to see the movie star on daytime television.

“Yippi Michael Rapaport is on WENDY!! Wish I had more time to watch it all, but I’ll have to catch up later!”

“After watching @MichaelRapaport on the @WendyWilliams show – someone PLEASE give him his own show,” one fan wrote.

Wendy spoke out for the first time on Monday about her absence for the entire 14th season, which was supposed to premiere September 20 but was repeatedly postponed.

“HOW YOU DOIN’? I MISS YOU ALL! As everyone knows, my health has been a hot topic,” the 57-year-old wrote on Instagram.

I’m getting there, but it’s one of those things that takes longer than we anticipated.

“I’m an older woman who knows enough to listen to my doctors and will return to my purple chair as soon as we all agree that I’m ready.”

“I want to thank all of my staff and our guest hosts for stepping up and filling in for me while I’m unable to be there,” Wendy continued.

I’d like to express my gratitude to Debmar-Mercury and our stations for their patience and support as I work my way back.

“I’d like to thank my fans first and foremost.

I’ve heard your prayers and read your comments, and I’m overwhelmed with gratitude! You are everything to me.

“I enjoy spending my mornings with you all, and I’m working hard to get back to work, but Wendy needs to focus on Wendy right now.”

I appreciate you taking the time to look…”

Wendy, who was recently seen outside of her New York City penthouse in a wheelchair with visibly swollen legs, has postponed her return to the purple…
