Arsenio Hall is officially returning to talk television! He’s partnering again with CBS Television Distribution for another late-night talk show.
“We’re excited to welcome Arsenio back to the family and partnering on his new, late-night syndicated talk show,” CBSTVD president John Nogawski said, announcing the news. “Arsenio had a substantial following with his previous late-night show, and that same 18-34 audience is now right in the middle of the late-night core audience of 35-54. Years ago, he transcended time periods and attracted a crossover audience while bringing a fresh perspective to late night. That same need in the market exists today as when we originally launched. We are looking forward to the same success with Arsenio’s seasoned expertise and appeal in this genre.”
Arsenio’s definitely excited to be headed back on the air.”It’s an amazing feeling to be going home to my old friends and colleagues and firing up our ‘Night Thing,’ ” Hall said. “Let’s get busy … again!” His former show, The Arsenio Hall Show, ran from 1989-1994.
Arsenio’s new show has already been cleared in markets including Boston, San Francisco, Atlanta, Detroit, Tampa, Pittsburgh, Denver, Cleveland, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Mo., Greensboro, N.C., and Norfolk, Va. The untitled-for-now show will hit televisions in fall 2013.
Not exactly sure what the new show will be like, but I might check it out just to see what it’s going to be like. Winning Apprentice this season definitely put him back on the map!
