The Arsenio Hall Show has been canceled.
After just one season, the late-night talk show will not return and CBS blames tanking ratings that have reportedly fallen from 1.9 million viewers to 700,000.
“While there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue,” a CBSTD spokesperson said. “Arsenio is a tremendous talent and we’d like to thank him for all the hard work and energy he put into the show. We’d also like to thank Tribune and all our station group partners for their support of the show.”
Arsenio Hall spoke out about the news as well.
“When I started this adventure with CTD and Tribune, we all knew it would be a challenge – I’m gratified for the year we’ve had and proud of the show we created,” he said.
“I’d like to thank everyone on my staff for rallying around me and striving to make the best show possible every night.”
