Late Night with Wanda Sykes?

Could it be true? Is Wanda Sykes getting her own late night television show? I got a bit excited when I heard this leak from Fox (learn more here) but my enthusiasm dwindled a bit once I read the post.

I'd love to see Wanda five nights a week but that's not the plan. Fox is planning a Saturday night late night talk show featuring Wanda that may launch this fall or in January. Well, I'll take what I can get. One night a week is a good start.

I've always loved me some Wanda, even before she came out and became a soldier in the war for marriage equality. And speaking of marriage equality, in case you haven't heard, the state of Iowa's Supreme Court just unananimously decided that their ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. This makes it the third state in the nation that will allow gay and lesbian couples to marry. WAY TO GO IOWA! Now we just have to wait for the rest of the nation to catch up.

But back to Wanda, I think she's a comedic genius and hopefully her one night show (should it become a reality) will develop into something bigger. Maybe the five nights of Wanda I envisioned when I first read the headline. I can always dream . . .

Until you see her on her late night show, maybe the video below will settle your Wanda cravings. This is clip that made me fall in love with her:
