The Arsenio Hall Show Gets Canned After Just One Season

The Arsenio Hall Show is ending its reboot effort after just a single season in. CBS reports that the electric comedian and stage personality has been passed on by the network to renew his irreverent late-night program, despite hosting some of the most star-studded performances late-night television may have ever seen (for God’s sake, PRINCE took over the show for an entire episode and gave one of the better interviews of the last 10 years of his career there.) All that aside, It was a good run for the seasoned vet, but it appears not even The Purple One could save the show. Peep performances by Nas, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy QJanelle Monáe, Childish Gambino, Chance The RapperTalib Kweli, Rick Ross, Big Sean, Kanye WestKid Cudi, Danny Brown and Mac Miller to commemorate The Arsenio Hall Show’s epic one-and-done run. RIP TAHS, you will be sorely missed.


  • The Black Pantheist

    Because he had Dick Gregory on the show.
    He was getting higher ratings than the Tonight Show(just like in the 90’s) but Hollywood doesn’t want blacks to truly feel empowered
