Arsenio Hall's return to late-night television worked out pretty well -- at least on night one.

The debut of "The Arsenio Hall Show" in syndication Monday night (Sept. 9) scored solid ratings with a 1.9 household rating in overnight metered markets. The show also led all the broadcast-network late-night shows -- all of which had new episodes Monday -- among adults 18-49 and adults 25-54.

Hall also finished first among late-night talkers in Los Angeles and second in New York, behind "The Late Show with David Letterman." One night does not a successful late-night franchise make, but it's a good start.

More TV news and notes:

- The CW will have a half-hour comedy on its schedule in 2013-14. The network has picked up a Canadian show called "Seed," which centers on a bartender (Adam Korson) who's also a sperm donor. He's drawn into relationships with three families who have used his donations. »
