“The Arsenio Hall Show” was welcomed back last year after almost two decades off the air. The late-night show offered various guests and lots of laughs. Fans of the show jumped on board with plenty of support, but in later months the hype of the show died down. According to a May 31 report from US Weekly, “The Arsenio Hall Show” has been canceled after just one season. This comes as a shock because Jay Leno appeared on the show just three months earlier telling Hall the show was renewed for a second year.
Speculations have been swirling across social media indicating that Arsenio Hall may have done something to upset the network executives. While the statement issued by the network indicated the audience did not grow enough to renew the show, it doesn’t make sense to cancel something after a renewal had been announced. Hall has always been outspoken, so the theories are not shocking to fans.
The Twitter feed for “The Arsenio Hall Show” has been filled with comments from disappointed fans. Hall has garnered viewers from several generations, which was a plus for the show in the very beginning. Since the show began airing in September 2013, several would-be viewers have dropped off slowly. “The Arsenio Hall Show” just wasn’t the same as the original, and some were disappointed.
Now that “The Arsenio Hall Show” has been canceled, fans are wondering what will be next for Arsenio Hall. There has not been a public statement issued from Hall yet, but he did tweet a little message that indirectly referenced the cancellation. Fans are hoping that Hall will resurface with another project or join another show. Even though the fan base wasn’t enough to save the show, it will be missed by the viewers who turned in each and every night to watch.
