The syndicated daytime talk show landscape has seen some big changes since the ending of shows from veterans Ellen DeGeneres and Wendy Williams earlier this year.

And among the new shows that have launched this fall, there’s a clear winner: Debmar-Mercury’s “Sherri” starring former “View” co-host Sherri Shepherd.

Shepherd’s syndicated talker, which took over most of the time slots occupied by “The Wendy Williams Show” (on which she was a frequent guest host last season) is sitting above the rookie pack with a 0.7 season-to-date household rating, representing about 1 million viewers a day, according to Nielsen Media. In the all-important demo of women aged 25-54, it’s notching a 0.4.
