April 1, 2009 | 10:39 am


Fox announced today that Emmy-award winning actress and comedian Wanda Sykes will host a new Saturday late-night talk show in the fall that will include commentary on hot-button issues, feature recurring personalities for panel discussions as well as segments outside of the studio.

This is Sykes' second show on Fox. Her first one, "Wanda At Large," went off the air in 2003 after 19 episodes. She has recently starred in CBS" "The New Adventures of Old Christine" as Julia Louis-Dreyfus' BFF.

“Yes, my relationship with FOX hasn’t been the best, but if Rihanna can go back to Chris Brown, I can go back to Fox. Oprah tried to talk me out of it, but I think Fox has changed," Sykes said in a Fox press release.
