Another Ending for Arsenio Hall
NYT ^ | 6/2/14 | Staff

Posted on 06/02/2014 8:15:53 AM PDT by AT7Saluki

The February announcement that Arsenio Hall’s syndicated late-night show would return for a second season turned out to be both premature and mistaken. CBS Television Distribution, which owns the show with Tribune Media, has announced a cancellation because of a ratings decline among the viewers most advertisers pay for in late night, people between the ages of 18 and 49.

Do does good programming bring them back?  Would Arsenio provide a good show?  Does CBS want to survive?

All good questions I would ask if I actually cared...

Excellent episode of “Turn” last night. The British started a witch hunt for rebel spies among the loyalists, rounded up all the guns, built gallows in the middle of town, and started dragging people from their homes in the middle of the night.

Next Sunday is the season Finale. Jame Riley wrote a a great critique of the show. We need more historically based TV like this.

I think Arsenio has already had his big moment back in the 1990’s. Neither he or his pal Eddie Murphy have kicked up much dust since then. Arsenio had gotten into only having black guests on for most of the time.

Thank you.

It’s obvious that his viewers didn’t desert him because they had to get up early to go to work or anything.

You really need to watch from the beginning to get an idea of what’s going on. After all the show is about deception so little is as it seems.

Flipped through channels available via non-cable. Most are Spanish, focus on gay lifestyle or have Black actors/actresses/hosts.

Except for Tuesday evening when NCIS and Person of Interest are on and an occasional Castle, not much need to have TV any more.

” not much need to have TV any more.”

PBS has some marvelous shows. “Inspector Banks”,”Inspector Goerge Gentley”,”Call the Midwife”,and “The Bletchley Circle”.

I think, it’s the unintended consequence of this constant drumming coming from the white House and his media about race.

It’s now become nothing more than preaching to the choir...the black choir.

“Nothing lasts forever..Arsenio had his time in the sun.”

Well, he could always try going on Dancing with the Stars - with all other has beens trying to relaunch their careers.

He already did the Celebrity Apprentice.

Of he can follow famous gay music stars and run for office.

I’ve found myself looking deeper into history of the characters on the show. The main characters were real people. One of my favorites was an enemy but Robert Rogers was a huge contributor to pre revolution America. Even today our military uses Rogers Rules. On the show he’s played By Angus McFayden who is really great.

Someone was talking about Rogers a few days ago. Perhaps it was you. I’ll pay special attention to his character.

I think it’s great when a show causes the viewers to want to know more about the characters from history.

I understand your reasoning but I feel intelligent enough to separate the wheat from the chaff, and I’m sure you are too.

I won’t deprive myself of good entertainment just to prove a point.

Yep.

FYI,one of my favorite pieces of clothing is a coat I bought at Selfridge’s about 20 years ago. It’s still in good shape.

Is Arsinio retartet enough for the show’s target demo? Maybe if yelled out “WORLD STAR” he would get more ratings.

Nah not racist. Just lousy TV.

Thinking back to my wasted youth, I caught a couple of episodes of his "new" show. What was "hip" and "edgy" in 1990 - now, almost 25 years later, is just "sad" and "pathetic".

But, it's probably racist to notice such things. So, you're ultimately right.

Does Arsenio have a “wasting” disease? He looks terribly thin and his reactions seem somehow delayed. It was very painful to watch . . . for the 2 1/2 minutes I gave him about a month ago.
