Arsenio Hall’s Late Night Talk Show Canceled

While Tyra Banks is celebrating her upcoming new talk show, Arsenio Hall is mourning the cancellation of his own. CBS Television Distribution has announced that 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,” a spokesperson for CBS Television Distribution said in a statement. “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.”

News of The Arsenio Hall Show‘s cancellation comes despite an earlier announcement made by CBS Television Distribution in February that the show would be renewed for a second season. Although the show had a strong start (1.9 in households, 1.0 in adults 18-49), its ratings began to diminish, and did not recover.

This was Arsenio’s second foray into late night talk. His first, the original Arsenio Hall Show, premiered on January 3, 1989, and ran until May 27, 1994.
