Williams hasn’t hosted an episode of Wendy since December. The 54-year-old television personality initially took time off to deal with a fractured shoulder, and she postponed her return date two separate times in January.

Debmar-Mercury eventually announced Williams’ hiatus from the show on Jan. 18, while her family revealed she would undergo treatment for Graves disease.

“Wendy will be under the strict supervision of her physicians, and as part of her care, there will be significant time spent in the hospital,” part of the statement read.

In the host’s absence, Nick Cannon filled in on Monday, Feb. 4th, Tuesday, Feb. 5th and Wednesday, Feb. 6th. Other guest hosts included Jerry O’Connell and Sherri Shepherd.

Wendy will air repeats until Williams returns on March 4.
