The Arsenio Hall Show will not continue on for its second season.
WTF? Arsenio Hall Show CANCELLED
Despite renewing the late-night syndicated show for a sophomore run in February, CBS Television Distribution has instead opted to cancel the series.
CBS said in a statement:
“Unfortunately, The Arsenio Hall Show will not return for a second season; while there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue. Arsenio is a tremendous talent and we’d like to thank him for all the hard work and energy he put into the show. We’d also like to thank Tribune and all our station group partners for their support of the show.”
"When I started this adventure with CTD and Tribune, we all knew it would be a challenge -- I’m gratified for the year we’ve had and proud of the show we created. I’d like to thank everyone on my staff for rallying around me and striving to make the best show possible every night."
Despite premiering to optimistic numbers, 1.5 rating with households, the ratings took a dive. The talker dropped 60 percent in the key demo within its first several months. There were bright spots along the way. A visit from Prince surged ratings 56 percent.

Hey BET, what up? How can Arsenio be down? Is there something you can do to help a brotha out? Or maybe he can take Chelsea's place, but she wants her predecessor to be Khloe or a woman.
All Jimmy Fallon does is steal folks ideas. Hence 'Celebrity Whispers,' which definitely hits home here.
