Nearly 20 years ago, Arsenio Hall was one of the kings of late-night television with his ground-breaking The Arsenio Hall Show. And now he's poised for a comeback.
On the heels of his recent Celebrity Apprentice win, Hall announced today he's returning to TV with a new late-night talk show. Hall will partner with CBS Television and Tribune for his new show, which will premiere next year. The show has already been sold in the top 10 markets and 17 of the top 20 across the country.
Last month, Hall defeated American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken to win Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice and recently guest-hosted for Pierce Morgan on his CNN talk show.
During its five-year run, The Arsenio Hall Show became iconic, from it's trademark "wuff, wuff" opening to Hall's ability to land big-time guests, including then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton, who famously played his saxophone on the show.
Hall had this to say about his return:
It's an amazing feeling to be going HOME to my old friends and colleagues and firing up our 'Night Thing.' Let's get busy ... AGAIN!
Hall will give his first sit-down interview about his new late-night talk show with Sam Rubin on Hollywood Uncensored, right here on ReelzChannel. The episode airs Thursday at 6 PM ET/3 PM PT and 12:30 AM ET/9:30 PM PT Watch the Hollywood Dailies segment about Hall's Return to TV >> Posted 06.18.12 by Chris
