And just that soon, it’s over for Arsenio Hall’s late night talk show comeback (for now). The sudden cancellation of The Arsenio Hall Show after just one season comes as somewhat of a surprise. Everything seemed perfectly fine in February when CBS Television Distribution renewed the show for a second season. But a fading audience proved to be the show’s demise. “While there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue,” CBS said in a statement. Even though he said he was “gratified for the year we’ve had and proud of the show we created” in a statement, his Twitter timeline made it clear that he’s sad to see it go.
