For those of us who remember the exploding success of the original Arsenio Hall Show, its once again time to dance in your seats and roll your fists in the air. He’s coming back , just as he was “Coming to America” … to a huge, supportive audience who were befuddled when the original show was not renewed in 1994.
According to the Huffington Post, Hall’s original show aired from 1989 to 1994. Many sources agree that the only reason Hall’s show (which stood toe-to-toe, then dominated ratings of the legendary Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show) was pulled was because he allowed Rev. Louis Farrakahn to speak freely about issues of racism and politics during an episode in 1994.
Hall, who still looks like he’s in his 3o’s, will capture the new generation of late night television viewers. They will find that his humor, charm, and unique interviewing style has polished the pro as fire does iron. I’m confident that Arsenio will not only match his previous success, but will take it to the next level.
A warning to corporate TV executives…don’t try to censor that man. Arsenio Hall stands up for many people and causes that make the world a better place. Why fight that?
Welcome back, Arsenio! We missed you and can’t wait to see you this September on CBS!!!
P.S. Wooh Wooh Woooh 🙂
