    The 'Wild ‘N Out’ show may go on for Nick Cannon and MTV

    The ice appears to be thawing on the fractured relationship between Nick Cannon and MTV.

    The basic cable network, whose parent company ViacomCBS severed ties with the media personality and producer earlier this year amid an anti-Semitic flap, is reconsidering its options pertaining to his hit “Wild 'N Out” series.

    “We continue to follow Nick’s journey and I’m impressed by how he’s owned his mistakes,” ViacomCBS' Entertainment and Youth Group Chris McCarthy told Variety. “He’s been an extended part of our family for almost 20 years and a personal friend of mine for almost half that. He’s leading by example, apologized and trying to learn to understand and help others do the same. That’s the kind of partner we want to work with.”

    McCarthy, who is one of Cannon’s biggest champions at the media conglomerate, did not comment to the outlet on whether “Wild 'N Out” will be back on MTV’s airwaves anytime soon but did confirm two camps have definitely been in close contact since the split in July.

    Cannon, who hosts and produces Fox’s wildly popular secret celebrity singing competition “The Masked Singer,” caused a firestorm for his June 30 “Cannon’s Class” podcast interview with ousted Public Enemy member Professor Griff, making inflammatory comments about “the true Hebrews.”

    ViacomCBS immediately cut decades-long ties with Cannon, who is the creative force behind MTV/VH1′s longest running sketch comedy series.

    After seeking the counsel of Rabbi Cooper, the associate dean and director of Global Social Action Agenda for the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the 40-year-old father of three later apologized for the remarks and took a short hiatus from his syndicated radio program.

    As the controversy ensued, Cannon’s planned daytime talk show was moved from the fall 2020 lineup and his reps refuted unconfirmed reports that he was suing the company.
