IT’S OFFICIAL! ARSENIO HALL LANDS LATE NIGHT TALK SHOW!
(BlackMediaScoop) Well folks we toldya that Arsenio Hall was on a comeback mission and it seems the deal is done! The project will see the former host of The Arsenio Hall Show reteam with CBS, the same network that oversaw his syndicated late-night talker that ran from 1989-94.
Hall’s new Monday-Friday show will kickoff in fall 2013. The show has already been sold in the top 10 markets and 17 of the top 20 — covering 52% of the country. With Tribune aboard, the strip will launch on 17 stations including WPIX New York and KTLA Los Angeles at 11 p.m. and WGN Chicago at 10 p.m.
Hall, who earlier this month defeated former American Idol contestant Clay Aiken to be crowned the fifth-cycle winner of NBC’s Donald Trump-hosted Celebrity Apprentice, has been vocal of late with his desire to return to the talk show circuit. He told The View earlier this month that it was like seeing an old girlfriend. Watch the interview below.
