Arsenio Hall wouldn't mind a little more late night action.
Deadline reports that during a panel at the Television Critics Association press tour, the former talk show host indicated that he would be willing to return to the small screen.
"I'd have to change my name to Nick Cannon and live with Mariah [Carey]," Hall joked. "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!"
"The Arsenio Hall Show" broke ground when it debuted in 1989 and helped further the careers of Busta Rhymes, MC Hammer and saxophonist Bill Clinton. The show was canceled in 1994.
Hall said he wouldn't mind another shot at hosting if a network was willing.
"It's pretty crowded out there," he said. "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."
This video post is genuinely fantastic, the sound quality and the picture feature of this film post is actually remarkable.
I'm now not certain where you're getting your information, however great topic. I must spend some time studying much more or understanding more. Thanks for wonderful information I used to be in search of this information for my mission.
His gums to teeth ratio is too high for late night success.
The Jews are pretty touchy. You don't get a second chance. It doesn't matter if your a racist or not, as they control Hollywood and New York. He probably could have at least surveyed a little if he went public and denounced.
Yeah, well, I wouldn't mind a million dollars. Doesn't mean its gonna happen.
You sucked the first time. That's the reason you have been unemployed for twenty years.
He wasn't funny the first time. What makes anybody think he'll be funny this time around?
Better than Dion Sanders worse than Montel Williams.Ill take Chappele!!!
F no-dont we have enough stupid gros on TV as it is?
Used to love his show, espec "thing that make you go hmmm?"
Always liked him – I would watch. He brought something fresh to the scene and seems to be a really down to earth guy. He should be given a shot!
another conan w nobody watching? get your facts straight conan gets better ratings than letterman & leno @ times. who cares if hall comes back ill watch to see if he goes down in flames. fox needs late night help
WHAT FAILED ONCE WILL FAIL TWICE....PLEASE....NO!!!!
Mr. Hall you are going to do what ever your going to do and we're going to watch to see if you crash and burn. Suggestion: Try something other than hosting a talk show,maybe a different kind of talent show,or something funniest placed in prime time. Research web shows since it hasn't been done yet. Could be a hit! That is all.
I Loved In Living Color!
i would mind.
Okay, but first, somebody please bring Chappelle back!
BRING HIM BACK- why not to many old white boring talk shows
Sure, let's give this racist ass*ole another talk show. Feel free to YouTube his interview of Vanilla Ice for a sample of that action...
Wow its funny 2 read this today on 8/1/2011 I just said I wish Aresino had. His show, welcome back (do the damn thing) the world belongs to God and he shares it with you and your desires
I want everyone to stop for one d*mn minute. Please scroll up and tell me that I am sleepy and my vision is blurry. I know for a fact that someone DID NOT just spell the past tense of ask "axed". Dear Jesus up above, please tell me no. Please!
Ah.... yes he did.... SMH!! I kept reading to see if anyone was going to comment on it. Still SMH!!!!
FACT: HE UPSET A CERTAIN GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT ARE IN CHARGE....
Go for it. Everything else is being rebooted anyway.
If BET won't give him a show why would any network? Ain't going to happen unless some idiot with some cable channel does it and he'll be just be a black Conan, nobody watching.
Has he worked steady during past 18 years? What has he done?
"Those people over there are People With Milkduds on Their Heads" Hoo Hoo Hoo!
People forget the talent he got on his show and the indept interviews he had I say go for it Mr.Hall.And people have some respect for others.That's why we as a people can't move ahead
I don't see any reason not to let this happen, everything else in entertainment seems to get recycled, too bad Johnny Carson can't be re-animated...
I can't believe I just read that article.
I've heard he had to borrow 5 bucks from MC Hammer for a 40.
I want to poo on his black face. Then he could reciprocate.
Bring back the 90s!
I have to brace for the onslaught of awful 90's nostalgia creepin' up in pop culture. Why Jesus?
And next, the off kilter Bobby Brown haircut, MC Hammer Pants and overuse of sampling other songs, eg. Ice Ice Baby. Please leave the 90s where they belong: in the past. As Bobby Brown would say, "Ya. Ya. Ya. Ya know it!"
He makes people with downs syndrome look like brad pitt. Paula abdull dated him cause she thought he was just another pill induced hallucination. He got cancelled cause his schtick got old really fast.please stay away from talk shows FOREVER
its a great idea. its a boost to late nite television.
Lemme get some: Hu hu hu hu Hu (with the fist pump)!
Too old? Letterman and Leno are in their sixties and going strong. Hall is a funny guy with a good outlook and past successes so there's a descent chance he could nail it. I say replace Ferguson with Hall. Fallon and Hall after Letterman and Leno would be pretty great.
I dunno, he kinda stank up the joint the first time. I doubt it would be any better now.
BRING BACK IN LIVING COLOR TOO!
Yeah and The Cosby Show too.
I been waiting.... his talk show was always fun. We need that raw entertainment again. I say let's do it!
I Would Love To See Mr. Hall Return To TV! I Have Missed Home So Much!
Wow who the hell is gonna give that triangle shaped head another shot? Mtv probably!
He'll fit right in with long chin Leno, creepy Letterman and gross looking Conan
I loved his show. I have always noticed he was still eager to get back into the talk show circuit. Whenever he would go on the Jay Leno show, he would practically take over the show.
Dude do it. As a fan of yours I think we could use a shot of cool comedy from a great professional & at 55 you're not too old in fact, you know when you're too old? when you're dead. Luck
you can run but you cant hide eddie!!!
I couldn't stand that grovelling dufus.
To those with short memories:
Mr. Hall lost his talk show after bringing on Louis Farrakhan and conducting a big slobbering interview with the hate-mongering former cabaret singer. He couldn't have sealed his fate any worse if he had resurrected Hitler and axed him "Whassup, Dog?"
We don't need to relive the 80's with this toad. Beat it.
So sorry he wanted to talk about something real at that moment in history which was the King Riots and he only did this after every other guest cancel on him. Sad person.
The word is asked, not axed. ask, asks, asked. Learn real English please. I can not stand the use of axe for ask and no one else respects someone who makes that mistake.
I just axed my mom if i could get on the interwebs to troll the comment boards. She axed me if I was going to post mean things on here and I axed her "mom since when have I posted mean things"? She axed me the quession "when haven't you posted mean things?" I axed her then if she could axe some people about my behaviour online. She said she didn't have time to axe anyone right now but would be sure that she axes someone later on tonight. So I'll let you know what she ends up axeing.
there r worse things out there...
Why? That's all I want to know...why?
C'MON DAWG, IT'S BEEN TWENTY-TWO YEARS AWREADY!!! RETIRE GRACEFULLY. REMEMBER MICHAEL JORDAN AND MAGIC JOHNSON.
It's been ALMOST 18...learn to do math before you start dissing someone...especially a person who has hosted and acted on TV and the Big Screen.
Letterman,and Jay are from the old school, he's a cool guy. It can be done!
He's in my celebrity death pool! Woot Woot Woot
The Gher-sineo hall show, with special guests, and fellow A.A.R.P members, Naughty by..I mean gheratol by nature (when had enough prune juice) -hey I could be a writer for the show...
Seriously, that was cold, but funny.
What part was funny?
Nauseating, just nauseating.
What? Your name?
I like your name. :)
All flash and no substance.
All stylin and profilin.
We have enough talk shows. Remember the good times, Chunky A, and leave well enough alone.
Give it up for the dog pound!!
GO FOR IT IM GOING TO SUPPORT YOU ALL THE WAY.
