‘The Wendy Williams Show’ Episode Guide (July 31): George Lopez; Nate Berkus

On today’s episode of the syndicated “The Wendy Williams Show,” comedian George Lopez opens up about starring in FX’s “Saint George,” which is his first scripted comedy series since ABC’s “George Lopez” went off the air in 2007.

Then, interior designer Nate Berkus appears on the program. And later, Wendy shows off some of the products she thinks are worth having and tells viewers where they can get them.

Mother, wife and best-selling author Wendy Williams burst onto the national talk show scene in July 2009 with the launch of the nationally-syndicated weekday program, “The Wendy Williams Show.” Called a “breakthrough in daytime” by The New York Times, “The Wendy Williams Show,” which airs in 52 countries, and is now in its third season, has just been renewed on Fox through 2014.

“The Wendy Williams Show” is the provocative, must-see daytime talk show. Taped live in New York, viewers delight over Williams’ distinctive and entertaining personality, as well as a diverse mix of interviews with celebrity guests from television, film, music and sports. Popular segments include “Ask Wendy,” during which she offers real advice to audience members looking for solutions to problems, and “Hot Topics,” in which she delivers her own unpredictable, honest, authentic and opinionated take on the juiciest headlines.

“The Wendy Williams Show” is a reflection of its star and host; the vibrant colors and upbeat soundtrack matches Williams’ own personality and energetic sense of humor, and the show’s focus on entertainment and pop culture reflects Williams’ passion for those topics. When she interviews the countless A-list celebrity guests for her show, it’s from the perspective of a fan, as she asks the questions that her audience wants to hear. A lover of classic television, Williams’ TV idols growing up were Dinah Shore and Merv Griffin.

Prior to achieving success in daytime television, Williams built a devoted audience of fans throughout an enormously successful 23-year career in radio. “The Wendy Williams Experience” was Williams’ top-rated daily radio show. Syndicated nationally, it aired on WBLS in New York and was listened to by an audience of more than 12 million people. One of the most popular personalities in radio, Williams was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in November of 2009—one of only a handful of women with that honor.
