Arsenio Hall Reportedly Fielding Calls To Return To TV

 

Arsenio Hall’s abrupt cancellation of his show may have been welcomed by a particular audience, but haters shouldn’t count the talk show veteran out just yet.

The 58-year-old Hall reportedly has seen his phone ringing nonstop since CBS backpedaled on their promise to re-up his return show for a second season.

Via The Wrap:

His manager, John Ferriter, tells TheWrap a three-peat is possible.

“There’s been an outpouring of support,” Ferriter says. “We started getting calls over the weekend.”

An individual close to the production told TheWrap that E!, OWN and BET were among the media companies courting Hall. But when contacted by TheWrap, two outlets denied that they’ve reached out to the comedian and his reps.

An E! representative told TheWrap “no,” when asked if the network was interested in working with the comedian. Another individual inside the company said bluntly that Hall is “too old” for E!’s demographic.

A representative for OWN also insisted that the network hadn’t reached out to Hall’s representatives and OWN has no plans to bring him to their channel.

In conspicuous chain of events, BET dragged their feet in responding to requests for comments. Think Arsenio could end up there or nah?

    Arsenio needs to call it a day his show was nothing short of complete buffoonery mixed with ignorance and had no substance just a couch full of loud mouth negroes night in and night out and I’m glad CBS pulled the plug and now they are going to choose someone even worse than him foul mouth Chelsea Handler.SMH

    The funny thing is some people are blaming CBS/Tribune for killing Arsenio Hall. The studio actually renewed. It’s the TV stations that downgraded the show, The poor time slots couldn’t make it work financially for CBS/Tribune. This sucks. I am hoping somebody will give Arsenio a 3rd chance. Maybe he could do a low key show that doesn’t cost as much. Too bad, CBS doesn’t give AH a chance on the Late, Late Show at 12:30AM.
