I enjoyed the show while it lasted once again after all these years- I salute Arsenio Hall for giving it another try. Maybe my generation that viewed the show in the beginning don't watch late night TV these days.-Crunkatlanta
At first CBS announced that the network was renewing “The Arsenio Hall Show” for another season, CBS backtracked and canceled the late-night talk show, due to poor ratings.
In a statement released by CBS, the network stated that the show dropped from 1.9 million viewers to just under 700,000.
“While there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue,” a CBSTD spokesperson said. “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.”
“When I started this adventure with CTD and Tribune, we all knew it would be a challenge – I’m gratified for the year we’ve had and proud of the show we created. I’d like to thank everyone on my staff for rallying around me and striving to make the best show possible every night,” said Hall.
Will miss the show -- again
