Arsenio Plots Comeback After Surprise Cancellation TheWrap
Arsenio Hall is in talks to reboot “The Arsenio Hall Show,” shortly after the syndicated late-night show was canceled in a surprise move by CBS Television Distribution, TheWrap.com reports, citing Hall’s manager.
“There's been an outpouring of support,” manager John Ferriter told the publication. “We started getting calls over the weekend.” He added that the host is in “early talks” to reboot the show.
TheWrap notes that it “couldn’t find anyone willing to cop to those early talks.” An unnamed source said that the interested outlets include E!, OWN and BET, but E! and OWN told the publication that they hadn’t reached out to the host. BET didn’t immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
