In February 2014, Hall's former rival, Jay Leno, made a surprise appearance to announce that the show had been renewed for a second season. But in May, CBS Television decided to cancel the show. See more »
So he gets another shot, most likely because he won Trump's Apprentice. I get that. But I've watched a few episodes and came to the realization of why his first show was canceled back in the 90's.
First of all, as in the past, his monologues just aren't funny.
Secondly, even if it's not the case, he just comes off as self-absorbed and totally disinterested when he's interviewing a guest. It always seems like his mind is elsewhere and that he's thinking about something other than the guest or what they are saying. For God's sake, look them in the eye, instead of acting like you're annoyed by the guest and have to really pee bad.
Thirdly, not sure why, but for some reason and for lack of a better word, he's just creepy.
Anyway, I know there's no way to undo his natural born creepiness, but if he wants to stay on the air, I suggest he should watch some old Carson to see how to actually interview somebody and come off as interested and engaged in the conversation.
Otherwise, this show faces the same demise as his first. Cancellation.
