Wendy Williams just closed a new deal that will keep her on Fox until 2017.

Fox Television Stations has renewed “The Wendy Williams Show” after a huge jump in readership over the month of May. The daytime talk show has doubled it’s viewers on the 25-54 demographic. Overall, the show has grown 43 percent over the last year.

“‘The Wendy Williams Show’ has as much momentum as any show on our air right now, both qualitatively and quantitatively,” Fox Television Stations senior vice president of programming Frank Cicha said. “Over the last few years, it’s evolved into the ideal lead-out to our morning news blocks. Like our news, the show delivers a day/date immediacy that serves as a blueprint for where we want to be the rest of the day.”

Love her or hate her, but Wendy isn’t going anywhere.
