Well Arsenio Hall’s return to television didn’t last very long– the show has been officially canceled due to low ratings. Technically this is the second time the late night talk show host’s show has been taken off the air.
Arsenio Hall’s return to late night television didn’t go as planned. CBS Television Production has pulled the plug after one season because of low ratings.
Hall managed to land quality guests and entertainer’s this past year, but with the talk show circuit packed with names like Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Chelsea Lately, David Letterman and others, Arsenio couldn’t re-establish the buzz and momentum that he once had back in the 90’s.
CBS said in a statement: “Unfortunately, ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ will not return for a second season; while there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue. Arsenio is a tremendous talent and we’d like to thank him for all the hard work and energy he put into the show. We’d also like to thank Tribune and all our station group partners for their support of the show.”
Hall also issued a statement.
“I’m grateful for the year we’ve had and proud of the show we created,” he said.
