face it he's gone,and its not really arsenio's fault.and yeah i agree with the first poster what killed arsenio was the backlash against hip-hop,especially after the LA riots.so arsenio was forced to somewhat change formats.wich caused another backlash amung the urban audiences.and he honestly never recovered.
everybody seems to be convinced that grunge killed arsenio but thats also false. it had absolutley nothing to do with arsenio's ratings.either way this show is sorley missed
