Wanda Sykes Goes Late Night

Fox is finalizing a deal with actress-comedian Wanda Sykes for a Saturday late-night show.

The hourlong show, slated to premiere in the fall, will succeed the recently canceled sketch comedy "MadTV." It will be topical, featuring a panel of recurring guests sparring over issues from politics to pop culture. It also will include Sykes in field segments.

Sykes represents a rare female presence in late-night, which is dominated by white male hosts. It also follows TBS' announcement of a new late-night talk show hosted by Mexican-American George Lopez.
