Trivia

The show was syndicated and aired on some CBS affiliates throughout the country. When Late Show with David Letterman (1993) premiered, many CBS affiliates moved Hall's show to a later time slot or dropped the show altogether. Hall's show also aired on some Fox affiliates. One week later, Fox premiered The Chevy Chase Show (1993) and Hall's show suffered the same fate. Even though Chase's show was short-lived, Hall was unable to retrieve his previous time slots. Hall's show was still popular in the markets where his show had not been moved or replaced but the nationwide ratings had sharply declined. See more »

Arsenio who?
29 July 2004 | by (east orange, new jersey) – See all my reviews

The generation today probably doesn't know who this man is. Though everybody remembers him as Eddie Murphy's sidekick in the 1988 movie "Coming to America". A few months later he had his own late night talk show. The first 2 years Arsenio was at his best and after that the show became boring and dry. He started having the same usual guest like Bill Cosby,MC Hammer,and Eddie Murphy to name a few. In 1994 maybe a week before his show was canceled he interviewed Minister Louis Farrakhan,and the plug was pulled. Recently he been the host of the newly Star Search,but today many people think this man's show never existed. This is probably because he didn't leave the audience when some interesting and overwhelming interviews with his guest and everything was sugar-coated and a** kissing. Naturally Arsenio Hall seem like a warm-hearted man who just can't cut staying in the limelight.
