After a one-season return, The Arsenio Hall Show has ben canceled.
“Unfortunately, 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. “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.”
Arsenio himself is also speaking out on the cancellation news, saying:
“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,” he said. “I’d like to thank everyone on my staff for rallying around me and striving to make the best show possible every night.”
We can’t say we didn’t see this one coming.
