    ‘The Jennifer Hudson Show’ Delays Premiere amid Ongoing Strikes

    Reports have revealed that the Jennifer Hudson Show has pushed back its scheduled premiere date.

    A new date has not yet been announced but initially, Hudson’s talk show was set to go on air today, and is unfortunately holding off. According to reports from Variety, the decision follows growing backlash against talk shows given the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.

    The backlash started last when Drew Barrymore made an announcement that despite the strike, The Drew Barrymore Show would begin filming its new season. At the time, she wrote on Instagram of the decision, “I own this choice.”

    A couple of days afterwards, she saw a lot of opposition from the public and was accused of crossing the picket line by resuming her show. Adding to the pushback, two audience members who attended the first taping were ejected for wearing pins and t-shirts in support of the strikes.

    There was also a revelation this past weekend that The Talk would be delaying its season 14 premiere date.

    “The Talk is pausing its season premiere scheduled for September 18,” CBS said in a statement to PEOPLE on Sunday. “We will continue to evaluate plans for a new launch date.”
