Movies & TV

Aresnio Hall was the late night talk show king throughout the 90s until he decided to quit in 1994. But after a 17-year hiatus, the late night talk icon says that he’s ready for a comeback.

Hall recently appeared on a PBS panel at TCA about an Ed Sullivan Comedy Special, which premieres on Aug. 6, whether he’d consider making a comeback.

“I’d have to change my name to Nick Cannon and live with Mariah (Carey),” he joked with Deadline. “But I think it’s a perfect time for that personally. Give me a microphone. My son’s 11 and he can drive himself to school. I’m ready to host!”

When a critic pressed if he was serious, Hall acknowledged, “It’s pretty crowded out there. I’m not sure if it’s too crowded for a 55-year-old guy to re-emerge, but if they give me a little daylight I’m gonna slide into it.””>Deadline.

Hmmm…would you watch the new millennium Arsenio Hall show? He had a lot of pull back then so I’m sure he’d be able to get top notch guests. This is a man who even got Jason Vorhees as a guest! Let us reminisce:
