If you grew up in the late 80s and early 90s , then you’re probably just as excited as I am to learn that our king of late-night, Arsenio Hall, is coming back to TV.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the recently appointed winner of Celebrity Apprentice, 56, is partnering with CBS to host a new late-night talk show set to air 2013.
After watching him battle it out in Donald Trump’s boardroom, I was reminded of just how much I missed seeing him on TV. I stayed up countless nights to catch him “woof” it up with his “dog pound” audience.
At the time, The Arsenio Hall Show was the only television outlet to showcase the majority of our stars and give us a glimpse into their glamorous lives, which would’ve otherwise gone undocumented in mainstream media.
Trust me, Johnny Carson was not featuring Bell Biv Devoe or Jodeci, but Arsenio always celebrated our musicians, actors, and more. He’s a trailblazer whose shoes haven’t been filled since his show ended in 1994.
Arsenio, it’s been a long time so let’s get busy!
Were you a fan of The Arsenio Hall Show back in the day? Will you watch his new show?
