Jennifer Hudson Show & The Talk Postpone Production Amid Ongoing Writers’ Strike

The Jennifer Hudson Show is the latest daytime talk show to delay their start date amid the ongoing writers’ strike, joining The Talk and The Drew Barrymore Show. This weekend, all three announced they would not return to linear television today as scheduled. According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources said that Hudson “advocated for the postponement.” All three shows previously employed Writers Guild of America union writers but were set to resume without them on board. This drew immense backlash, ultimately leading to holding off on continuing production.
