The Arsenio Hall Show: Cancelled; No Season Two

Arsenio Hall Show canceledRemember last February, when Jay Leno made his first post-Tonight Show appearance to tell his friend Arsenio Hall that his show had been renewed for a second season? Well, CBS Television Distribution has changed their mind. They’ve cancelled The Arsenio Hall Show after one season.

The series had a very positive launch last year but the ratings started falling quickly and they never recovered. The studio tried replacing the executive producer and inviting some big guests but it just wasn’t enough.

A spokesperson for the studio said, “While there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue… 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 noted, “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.”

What do you think? Did you like watching Hall’s new show? Are you upset that it’s been cancelled?

    I cannot believe it!!! Arsenio Hall show cancelled again!!! Other shows that are not great get two and three seasons, this was just warming up to get better. I am upset. Arsenio and staff did a wonderful job, made us laugh with the comedic acts and brought us great talent, I for one I am sorry to see it go.

    When Arsenio showed that he was racist over the Trevon Martin case, that was the end for me. Never watched his show again.
