The new syndicated talk show, Nick Cannon
, premieres today. Host Cannon will bring his own perspective to daytime television with an hour of comedy-driven entertainment featuring celebrity interviews, music performances, and much more.
Recently, Cannon spoke to the media in a video conference about the new Lionsgate show filmed in Harlem.
Cannon told the press that the show would feature more than just celebrities. “The guests on this show are totally just people that I'm fascinated by. I hate the word celebrity, just because of what it's kind of turned into. It’s origin was, you know, ‘people we celebrate.’ So, in that sense, I want to celebrate people daily, but I'm not just celebrating people because they're popular, [or] because they have a new movie out or something. So, it's really people fascinate me in that sense.
“And I've taken a note page out of some of the talk show greats that have come before me that the best interviews are those opportunities where you can introduce your audience to new ideas, new people, new fascinations, and truly be a curator of what we celebrate.
