Arsenio Hall

The Arsenio Hall Show Canceled After One Season

(AllHipHop News) Arsenio Hall came back for more and left with less. 20 years after FOX canceled The Arsenio Hall Show after four seasons, CBS has done the same to the reboot after only one season.

The reboot of the late 80s/early 90s talk show debuted on September 9th, 2013 and in February was renewed for a second season. When the show was renewed in February, CBS Television Distribution  president of sales, Joe DiSalvo lauded the show’s appeal:

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.

However, CBS is seemingly backtracking on those statements, claiming the show’s popularity did not meet its standards:

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 responded to the cancellation of his show in the same press release stating that every party involved in the show “knew it would be a challenge”, but is ultimately grateful.
