‘The Wendy Williams Show’ Renewed Through 2021-22 Season on Fox Stations

‘The Wendy Williams Show’ Renewed Through 2021-22 Season on Fox Stations “The Wendy Williams Show” is set to remain on the air through the 2021-22 season. Fox Television Stations has handed Williams’ eponymous talk show a two-year renewal, extending the live, nationally syndicated show’s decade-long run to 13 seasons. “I’m so excited to launch our 11th year by letting the world know I will continue to do what I love to do so much – and for a very long time,” said Williams. “I want to tell Fox and all of our stations today how much their support and confidence means to me.

Heading into the last day of the 2019 Major League Baseball season, there's still some uncertainty in the postseason picture, despite all 10 spots having been secured.

MLB: Rays' Johnny Davis completes unlikely path to majors

MLB: Rays' Johnny Davis completes unlikely path to majors A native of Compton, Johnny Davis took a long road to the majors, spending time playing in Mexico and an independent league.

Here's a look at everything up for grabs on Sunday:

National League Central: In the only division still up in the air, the Cardinals hold a one-game lead over the Brewers. St. Louis can clinch with a win or a Milwaukee loss. Ace Jack Flaherty (0.97 ERA since All-Star break) gets the ball for the Cardinals on Sunday against the Cubs. Adrian Houser starts for the Brewers against the Rockies.

If the Brewers manage to tie things up, there would be a tiebreaker game Monday. The Cardinals took the season series 10-9, so the tiebreaker would be played at Busch Stadium. Whichever team does not win the division will play the Nationals in Washington in the NL wild-card game Tuesday night.

NL batting title: Milwaukee's Christian Yelich, who is out for the season, is the league-leader with a .32924 average, but Arizona's Ketel Marte is right behind him at .32864. If Marte gets a hit in his first at-bat Sunday, he would take the lead and presumably be removed from the game. A 1-for-2 day would put Marte at 0.3292469352, an absolute tie with Yelich. There's never been a tie in a batting title race, so there's no precedent here.

MLB AWARDS: Who's going to get the hardware?

ALONSO: Mets slugger sets rookie home run record

50 home runs: Reds third baseman Eugenio Suarez is stuck on 49 home runs, looking to join George Foster (1977) as the only Cincinnati players to reach 50.

20 wins: Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez is 19-6 heading into Sunday's game at Fenway Park against the Orioles. He would be the first Boston left-hander to win 20 games since Mel Parnell in 1953.

200 hits: Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers (198) and Yankees infielder DJ LeMahieu (197) are on the cusp of reaching the milestone.

60 doubles: Cubs right fielder Nick Castellanos has been sidelined since Wednesday by a groin injury and is stuck on 58 doubles for the season. Nobody has hit 60 in a season since 1936.

Despite hopes from Jaguars owner, Jalen Ramsey unlikely to play vs. Saints .
It looks like Jaguars owner Shad Khan was mistaken. Khan, who has seemingly been overly optimistic about the Jalen Ramsey situation ever since his trade demand became public, said earlier this week that he expected Ramsey to play in Week 6. That was apparently news to Ramsey, and his camp soon put out word that he hadn’t committed to playing this week. Indeed, it “would be a major surprise if he plays this week,” tweets Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
