Nick Cannon‘s getting a warm welcome at FOX for his new late night TV show, and so is his turban … TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ … Nick will rock his signature headgear without concern or pushback from the network. That wasn’t the case in the latter part of his nearly 10-year run as host of “America’s Got Talent” on NBC.

Sources said the Peacock Network wasn’t jibing with his look on ‘AGT,’ and unleashed its wrath on him over a “black card” joke he made during a Netflix comedy special. 

That dispute led to Nick quitting ‘AGT’, and leaving millions on the table.  

As for his new FOX gig, we’re told it has to be a weekly show, because Nick is currently finishing up his master’s degree at Howard University. When he’s done, it’ll free him up to do a nightly show. We’re told the show’s set to debut in early 2019.

The premise of the show … think “community party” for every episode.
